Hitachi Enters SSD Business, Unveils FCAL-Ready Drive

Hitachi GST showed off its first solid state drive (SSD) to the public, at the Hitachi uValue 2010 convention held in Tokyo. The company made its entry with an enterprise-grade SSD, expected to carry the UltraStar label which the company's high speed (15,000 rpm) enterprise hard drives carry. The SSD comes in the 2.5" form-factor, with serial-attached SCSI (SAS) and fiber-channel arbitrated loop (FCAL) interfaces, becoming only the next SSD-maker after STEC to offer FCAL. While no storage capacity figures were quoted, the drives are expected to come in capacities ranging from 64 GB to 512 GB. Hitachi GST is popular hard drive maker, known more for its enterprise-grade hard drives, than its consumer-desktop products.Source: The Register
