    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 50 GB to 400 GB.

    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. For more information, visit this page.

    I'm really fed up and skeptical about this trend of marketing enthusiast / consumer level hardware being marketed as "enterprise" level hardware. Obviously it works otherwise they wouldn't do it, but it's beyond dumb. Any piece of hardware that is truly "enterprise" level generally isn't made by consumer manufacturers, nor is it marketed as "enterprise" hardware as this is being.

    Haha stop being a sour grape. I own a X25-M 80GB G2 and can say that my HD5850 cost me more, so did my Dell 24" monitor and my first quad core (940 BE). In fact most if not all my monitors and GPU's have always cost in the range of $250/$300, the price of a 80GB SSD.

    Now look back 10 years or less and you'll see HDD's weren't exactly cheap, they were god damn expensive. I had a Quantum Bigfoot, a whopping 20GB and it cost something like $350. Look on the bright side, SSD's will go the exact same way over the years and they'll ramp up in storage just like HDD's did.

    In fact thinking back to 1999 when the largest HDD was only 20GB is hilarious. My Bigfoots still in use today, makes a good door stop.
