Solid State Drive Obsolescence

We assure continued availability to our military customers through our Obsolescence Management, this includes not only FFF replacements, we also introduce the possibility of providing our customers with advance notice of critical component EOL this allows for advance procurement of the current SSD by the customer or alternatively the ability to work with TridentSD in partnership to advance purchase critical components and controllers, in some cases also NAND Flash.

Of course we also work with customers to preserve FFF SSD in terms of a cloned SSD utilising the latest controller and NAND flash technologies and providing a FFF replacement.

Solid State Drive SSD Galatea 100GB 200GB Encryption

A rugged encryption SSD. Solid State Drive SSD Galatea 100GB 200GB Encryption

GalateaTM Solid State Drives (SSDs), defining the leading edge for performance and reliability in ultra-rugged mass storage.

These drives fit up to 200GB SLC NAND Flash of user memory into standard 2.5 inch, thin (9.5mm height) dimensions and delivers sustained read / write rates of 280MB/s along with random read / write rates over 30,000 IOPS.
Combining 128-bit AES encryption with high-speed full-drive erasure (200GB in less than 15s) raises data security to new levels.

Solid State Drive SSD ECC

Advanced error correction pushes the bit error rate a full two orders of magnitude beyond the industry standard, while exclusive write optimization and wear-levelling techniques reduce erase / program cycles and achieve a 20-fold increase in media life expectancy. The Galatea Standard SATA supports the SATA II, revision 2.6, interface standard at 1.5Gb/s and 3.0Gb/s.

•Plug'n'Play, independent of operating system
•No device driver development required
•Write protect and jumper
•ATA/ATAPI-7, SMART and TRIM supported
•Data retention: more than ten years
•Endurance: more than 100,000 writes
•MTBF: more than 1.24 million hours, Telcordia 25°C, 32GB SSD
•Resulting bit error rate less than one in 10e14 and better
