A new SATA 6 Gb/s SSD leverages 24-nm enterprise multi-level cell (eMLC) NAND flash. The XceedIOPS2 from Smart Storage Systems delivers up to 520 MB/s of sequential read/write speed and up to 60,000/40,000 random read/write IOPS. Ranging from 50 GB to 400 GB, the device offers a comprehensive error correction and detection engine, multi-level data-path and code protection, data-fail recovery, advanced thermal management features, and high-reliability back-up power circuitry. Additionally, a flash-management algorithm includes bad-block management, wear leveling, and minimal write amplification.
