BiTMICRO ratchets up SSD capacities, speeds

BiTMICRO is a name that should be familiar to many regular readers of DailyTech. When most companies announced 64GB or 128GB solid-state drives, BiTMICRO was there to wow the audience with 416GB and 832GB SSDs.

BiTMICRO is looking to impress again today with a new entry in the enterprise storage arena. The company announced that its E-Disk Altima Ultra320 SCSI SSD will now be offered in capacities ranging from 16GB to 1.6TB.

The SSDs uses ultra-fast, single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash chips to offer sustained transfers of 230MB/sec -- burst speeds can reach a maximum of 320MB/sec. In addition to incredible speed, BiTMICRO's E-Disk Altima Ultra320 SCSI SSD feature BCH Error Correction Code and advanced wear-leveling to alleviate fears of premature data corruption.

BiTMICRO's drives are targeted at aerospace, military and industrial applications, so data integrity is of high importance. BiTMICRO says that its SSDs can operate in temperatures ranging from -40C to 85C and can withstand shocks of up to 1,500 Gs.

"Ruggedness has always been the strength of flash SSDs in the military market, and the forthcoming addition of the E-Disk Altima Ultra320 SSD to BiTMICRO’s line-up will shore up the company’s support for I/O intensive and high-capacity applications," said Rudy Bruce, BiTMICRO's Executive Vice President for Marketing and Sales.

BiTMICRO expects to sample the new SSDs during the second quarter of 2009. Volume shipment of the drives -- including the aforementioned 1.6TB model -- will begin during the third quarter.

As for pricing, you probably shouldn't even ask unless you have access to a budget like this.
