Plextor launches high-performance SSD
Dubai, May 21, 2013
Plextor, a leading developer of high-performance digital storage equipment, has launched in the Middle East its high-performance 2.5-inch solid-state drive (SSD) with professional read-and-write efficiency.
The Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme is a professional SSD designed for business and advanced users who demand high performance, reliability, and true data integrity which come in three different capacities like 128GB, 256GB and 512GB.
The drive is powered by True Speed technology that efficiently clean up the dirty blocks by constantly operating in the background to pick up blocks, erase the unwanted pages and move data to deliver a constant speed with high performance.
It uses the combination of the latest Marvell 88SS9187 controller and the best quality Japanese Toshiba Toggle NAND flash creates M5Pro with enterprise-class performance. It has the ability to consistently deliver random read / write speeds up to 100,000/88,000 IOPS and sequential read / write speeds up to 540 / 470 MB/s. This makes the M5Pro Xtreme suitable for use in a heavy workstation, server role, or Raid 0 configuration.
The M5 Pro Xtreme retains the features that define it as a true professional SSD; this includes a calculated mean time between failures of 2.4 million hours.
This level of reliability has been achieved through extensive development, strict quality control, and a stringent pre-production testing requirement of 400 drives passing 500 hours of intensive tests with zero errors.
Bill Liu, regional manager-Channel Marketing & Sales, Plextor said, “M5 Pro Xtreme redefines professional standards for mean time between failures and data protection. This new 2.5-inch Sata SSD powered with new Plextor firmware makes the drive extremely fast, reliable and stable enhances performance to newer levels.”
The M5 Pro Xtreme also features Plextor True Protect unique enterprise-grade double-data protection technology. True Protect is a multi-layer system to ensure the highest level of data integrity, combining the latest 128-bit error correction built into the Marvell controller with Plextor’s exclusive firmware-based Robust Data Hold-out algorithm.
True Protect’s other element is protection against data theft using 256-bit AES full-drive encryption for maximum confidentiality. – TradeArabia News Service
