Solid State Disk Drives

Solid state disk drive storage is designed to provide high performance, low power consumption, high reliability, high capacity, and deliver high speed sustained sequential read and write performance. As SSD's have no moving parts they have excellent shock and vibration characteristics making them ideal for demanding applicaitiosn in harsh environments. 

Built on high speed SLC/MLC NAND flash and advanced controller technology, industrial grade solid state disk drives are designed for 0°C and -40°C to +85°C operating temperatures.

SSD's are fast becoming the data storage drive of choice given thier advantages over Hard Disk Drives (HDD). SSD's are highly customisabale. Firmware, Hardware and Power settings can all be customised to offer a bespoke solution for users.
