LSI Corp. today announced the start of sampling of the enterprise-class solid-state drives (SSDs) for PCI Express bus developed for enterprise customers in cooperation with Seagate Technology. The new LSI SSS6200 device can easily rival other off-the-shelf products for OEMs of the similar kind, including those from Fusion-io company.

LSI solid-state storage (SSS) solution 6200 for PCI Express x4 interface integrates up to six Seagate Pulsar solid-state drives that are designed for Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) interconnection. The device achieves bandwidth of 1500MB/s sustained sequential I/O and 1200MB/s sustained random I/O, regardless of read/write mix. The small form-factor PCIe card delivers up to 200 thousand 4K sequential I/Os per second (IOPS) and up to 150 thousand 4K random IOPS. Storage capacity of the SSS6200 is up to 300GB can be configured in a single PCIe slot with no external power requirement.

“The new LSISSS6200 card utilizes the industry’s most widely deployed software stack to deliver an enterprise-capable, drop-in storage solution. Providing customers with a new tier of storage between system memory and low-cost disk drives, without sacrificing reliability or simplicity, PCIe-based SSS solutions represent the next evolution in storage architectures for market segments requiring extreme performance," said Steve Fingerhut, senior director of marketing at storage components division at LSI.

The card is designed to maximize transactional I/O performance for applications such as Web serving, data warehousing, data mining, online transaction processing and high-performance computing. Using industry-standard LSI software drivers, the card provides support for all major operating systems and helps OEM customers achieve a faster time to market.

"Future customer requirements related to price, performance, power consumption and reliability align well with the benefits of solid-state storage. PCIe-based SSS solutions, such as the LSISSS6200, can reliably meet next-generation data center needs with an improved price-to-performance ratio compared to traditional storage solutions,” said Jeff Janukowicz, research manager of hard disk drive components and solid state drives at IDC
