New Industrial-Grade StorFly SSDs Provide Cost-Effectiveness,
7X Reliability Improvement over Standard MLC

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif. – Jan. 12, 2016 — Virtium, a leading solutions-driven provider of industrial solid-state drive (SSD) storage and memory products, today announced a significant extension of its high-endurance industrial SSD line with the debut of StorFly® XE Class SSDs.

This new XE Class of drives bridges the gap between Virtium’s current StorFly CE Class SSDs, which are ideally suited for boot-drive and/or lower workload environments, and the StorFly PE Class drives, designed for the most demanding workloads and highest reliability. By providing a middle category, industrial-system designers now have an unmatched selection of solid-state storage with which to meet their specific requirements.

StorFly XE Class SSDs leverage Virtium’s new industrial–grade multi-level cell (iMLC) technology to strike a unique balance between high reliability and cost efficiency. XE Class drives provide up to seven times greater read/write endurance than the StorFly CE Class and support industrial temperature (-40C to 85C) operation — all at only a marginal price premium over CE Class SSDs.

“Many industrial-systems designers tell us they are challenged to reduce design costs while still retaining storage reliability and endurance,” said Scott Phillips, vice president of marketing at Virtium. “In developing the StorFly XE Class SSDs, our engineers discovered a highly innovative approach to SSD development that dramatically improves MLC endurance and data retention in extended-temperature environments while also improving write performance — yet at a price point that allays reliability and budget concerns.”

Like all StorFly industrial SSDs, the XE Class features vtGuard™ for added power-fail protection against data loss and vtSecure™ security features. Additionally, the drives are supported by vtView® software for precision performance and life monitoring, and come with Virtium’s five-year warranty.

The new StorFly XE Class SSDs highlights:
— Superior endurance through iMLC at a minor impact on price over standard MLC.

— Industrial-temperature support, enabling greater data retention than standard MLC in extreme environments

— Wide capacity range, from 30GB to 480GB

— Industry’s most popular interfaces and form factors for embedded/industrial systems: M.2, CFast, Mini Card, mSATA, SlimSATA, 1.8” and 2.5”

— Protection features (vtGuard and vtSecure)

— vtView monitoring software

— Adherence to RoHS and worldwide hazardous-substance compliance standards
