Memoright, a Taiwan-based developer of solid-state drives, this week introduced breakthrough SSD that is based on multi-level cell NAND flash memory that feature four times higher endurance than competing products. Memoright QuadLife-series SSDs use proprietary firmware and are aimed at industrial/embedded systems, enterprise systems and commercial PCs.

Memoright QuadLife-series SSDs are available in capacities of 265GB and 530GB in a 2.5” form-factor and 220GB in a 1.8” form factor. The SSDs are equipped with internally developed Endurance Write firmware architecture with exclusively patented technology and algorithms to take full advantage of flash memory write blocks, which compared with the 3000 - 5000 PE cycles typical of ordinary MLC SSDs increases dramatically to more than 20000 times. In other words, the effective life of QuadLife series SSDs has been extended to four times or more of ordinary MLC-based SSDs.

Unfortunately, the high endurance of Memoright QuadLife SSDs comes at the price of performance. QuadLife utilizes Serial ATA-3Gb/s interface and only supports maximum sequential read/write speeds of 210MB/s/220MB/s as well as 29000/12000 read/write input/output operations per second (IOPS).

Memoright QuadLife SSDs support the Security Erase data erase function and Software Erase as well as the Hardware Erase wipe functions, providing a number of optional settings for data security erase and destruction to ensure that information can be securely erased or destroyed.

For buyers in cloud computing, business servers, industrial computers and other equipment, Memoright QuadLife series MLC-based SSDs are lower priced than SLC SSDs yet retain the longevity characteristics of SLC flash memory while saving 75% of the cost. With a life expectancy more than four times that of ordinary MLC-based SSDs, the Memoright QuadLife series provides a good solution for the commercial market with high investment efficiency and super longevity.

I think the performance is also not bad. But that's just me.
