BiTMICRO NETWORKS today unveiled new solid state disk drives, the E-Disks(TM) SUD35 and SCD35, which offer up to 75.7 GB of storage in a 3.5-inch form factor.
According to the company, the drives are Rated at 9500 random I/Os per second (IOPS), 48 usec random access time and 34 MB/sec sustained random read and write transfer rates. They say it is ideal for "hot files."
"Hot Files" usually comprise less than 5 percent of application's database but account for more than 50 percent of I/O waiting time. By adding the SUD/SCD E-Disk as an architectural solution, overall system performance will improve significantly.
BiTMICRO says the E-Disk SUD and SCD solid state storage devices are great I/O and throughput performance booster for DAS (Direct Attached Storage), NAS (Network Attached Storage) and SAN (Storage Area Network) architectures and RAID configurations -- by either replacing the hard disk drives used or acting as a cache or parity disk.
The E-Disk brand storage devices are fully compatible with Linux, Solaris, Windows, MacOS and LynxOS using standard drivers. It also supports AIX, FreeBSD, HP-UX, IRIX, NetBSD, OS/2, QNX, VxWorks, SCO Unixware and OpenServer, Solaris x86 and Tru64.
