Compact, Low-Power, Industrial-Grade SSDs Resistant to Harsh Environment
RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif. – May 26, 2021 — Virtium, a leading solutions provider of industrial solid-state drive (SSD) and memory solutions, today announced the Virtium® StorFly® CFexpress PCIe Gen 4.0 Removable NVMe SSDs. The new drives are the industry’s first removable SSDs in the compact CFexpress form factor with the PCIe 4.0 interface and Industrial Temperature (I-Temp) support. They enable sealed, industrial-grade solid-state storage in applications requiring both the flexibility of compact, removable media and the high performance of NVMe. Additionally, the new CFexpress SSDs are resistant to environmental factors that can compromise the drives and their data, and feature Industrial Temperatures (I-Temp) support that ensures consistent operation between -40°C to 85°C.
The low-power (sub 3-watt) CFexpress SSDs are ideally suited to industrial-embedded applications that demand data-storage removability in order to offload captured data. Those applications include military/aerospace mission recorders, professional video, and surveillance-recording systems. The drives’ sealed, ruggedized design makes them ideal for environments prone to high electrostatic discharge, dust, dirt, shock, and vibration – all common in cold, dry outdoor industrial-embedded deployments. Those same durability features also benefit factory floors, where StorFly CFexpress SSDs can be used in programmable logic controller or other human-machine interface applications.
“Our new CFexpress drives deliver several industry firsts, including: PCIe Gen 4, the highest performance per watt; and best steady-state performance over I-Temp wide temperature range,” said Scott Phillips, Virtium Vice President of Marketing. “Many SSD manufacturers too often overlook how power consumption and the resulting heat generated can negatively impact their drives’ performance. Virtium, in contrast, emphasizes achieving an optimal balance of throughput and power consumption that accommodates demanding application workloads – a balance reflected in our new CFexpress Removable NVMe SSDs.”
