Super Talent Announces Enterprise Class TeraDrive SSDs based on SandForce SSD Processor

New SSDs Deliver Extreme IOPS and Outstanding Reliability

San Jose, California - January 21, 2010 - Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today announced a new line of TeraDrive SSDs designed specifically for high end enterprise and database server applications.

"Super Talent has a solid track record of developing leading edge SSDs. Their new TeraDrive series, incorporating SandForce technology, is an impressive advance in enterprise storage" commented Thad Omura, VP Marketing at SandForce Inc.


The new TeraDrive FT2 is a SATA 3Gbps SSD based on the advanced new SandForce SF-1500 SSD processor. It delivers sequential read and write speeds up to 250MB/sec that will not degrade over time. It also supports blazing fast transaction speeds up to 30,000 IOPS, making it a formidable storage solution for database servers where random read and write speeds are critical.

The TeraDrive FT2 makes no compromises in reliability or endurance with state-of-the-art wear leveling, bad bit management, and excellent ECC with up to 24 bytes correctable per 512 byte sector. Set to revolutionize enterprise storage, the TeraDrive FT2 is available with either MLC or SLC NAND flash, and is offered in capacities from 50GB to 400GB.

According to Joe James, Director of Marketing at Super Talent, "We engineered the TeraDrive FT2 for optimum performance and reliability in server applications, especially where fast random access to small files is needed". MLC and SLC TeraDrive SSDs are available to OEMs directly from Super Talent in sample quantities this month and in volume later in Q1/2010.

The Sandforce processor seems to make a big difference in the drives they are in. I am glad to see the spec's going up of course, but in the SSD drive sector I am very happy to see the pricelines starting to get more realistic for a general user.

OCZ is using that Sandforce processor in the new top of the line SSD's as well and the return on that drive is quite nice. I believe it beat the Intel SSD in some tests considerably and in other marginally to mid.

I too applaud the prices lowering in SSD drives. I look forward to owning one in each of my systems to drastically improve overall performance in each of them. They are gonna have to drop some more before I can bite off my chunk of speed though,.............

Agreed ^

The odd thing is that Super Talent has never really been a name that is often mentioned.  I only came across this company last year, when I saw their tiny flash drives.  I'm glad they are jumping on the hard drive band wagon.
