Virtium Doubles Capacity of StorFly Industrial SSD Line

November 14, 2019 Perry Cohen

Virtium, a provider of industrial solid-state drive (SSD) and memory solutions, announced in a press release it has doubled the capacity of its StorFly 2.5-inch line of SATA industrial SSDs. The drives, which reach top-capacity of four terabytes (4TB), were developed for large file-write applications such as security, surveillance, and data logging. StorFly also be used for 3D mapping and databases in correlation with the growing demand in transportation, IIoT, edge computing, military, and aerospace.

The new industrial SSDs are among the first 4TB 2.5-inch SATA SSDs on the market, per the release. Other features of the drives include industrial temperature (I-Temp) support, high shock/vibration tolerance, and integrated data protection. They are designed around triple-level-cell (TLC) 3D NAND flash that yields higher densities at a lower cost per bit. The SATA interface is used for maximum compatibility and feature a low operating power of 3.4W.

Its form factor enables them to be deployed in standard storage enclosures/racks and quickly replace older SSDs with lower capacities. The new 4TB drives are supported by a suite of tools providing additional data protection and solid-state storage monitoring. These software modules are designed to provide users the ability to optimize, protect, manage, and qualify SSDs. AES-256 encryption engine, with on-the-fly encryption to protect data at rest, is featured on the new drive.
