STEC’s 6Gb SAS ZeusIOPS SSDs at Flash Memory Summit (FMS) are now sampling into high-performance Enterprise storage and server systems. The advancement is expected to generate additional momentum for the successful STEC’s SAS SSD series which has already been widely adopted with the 3Gb SAS ZeusIOPS. The 6Gb SAS ZeusIOPS SSD will deliver an unprecedented 80,000 IOPS Random Read, 40,000 IOPS Random Write with transfer speeds of 550MB/s read and 300MB/s write. Available in both 2.5″ and 3.5″ form factors and supporting SLC and MLC Flash, this next generation 6GB SAS ZeusIOPS SSD is expected to be in full production by end of Q4.
Fulfilling the demand for high-performance and high-reliability SSDs, STEC is once again elevating the performance metrics by increasing Read/Write performance by 3x and lowering the maximum latency to 10x over its 2nd generation ZeusIOPS.
“STEC was among the first to introduce SAS-based SSDs into the Enterprise Storage market and today leads it into the next generation by advancing its performance and reliability,” said Manouch Moshayedi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of STEC. “Our goal is to keenly follow the current and future needs of our customers and continue to deliver the latest in Enterprise SSD technologies that will allow for the maximum performance of SSDs in their systems. Having anticipated the acceleration of SAS adoption among our major customers, the introduction of our 6GB SAS interface ZeusIOPS is yet another example of this as we have designed our next-generation SAS ZeusIOPS SSD to meet the higher performance needs of the market.”
