Smart Storage Systems, an innovative enterprise solid-state drive (SSD) technology provider, this week announced the new Optimus Eco, the first SAS-6Gb/s SSD on the market to leverage 19nm multi-level cell (MLC) flash. The SSD combines performance, capacity, endurance and cost in an enterprise-class 2.5” drive

Optimus Eco leverages the Guardian technology platform, a proprietary suite of enterprise features and enterprise-class endurance enhancement technologies, to deliver up to 10 drive writes per day (DWPD). In addition, the new SSD provides consistent performance throughout the five year warranty period, delivering up to 500/500MB/s sustained read/write performance and up to 100K/45K IOPS. The Optimus Eco also comes equipped with a full line of enterprise features, including Smart Storage Systems' third generation backup power circuit technology, full data path protection, data fail recovery, thermal monitoring and AES 256-bit encryption. The Optimus Eco is available in capacities ranging from 200GB - 2TB. OEM pricing for the Optimus Eco 2TB drive starts at $3999.

Forced to do more with less, many organizations are choosing to build their own hyperscale architectures by combining best-in-class hardware and software to lower costs and meet growing data center demands. In addition, looking to control maintenance costs, data center managers are seeking the highest-capacity drives to pack more capacity into a rack, resulting in the ability to reduce their storage footprint.

Gartner estimates that in 2016 the average capacity of an SSD deployed in enterprise storage and server environments will be more than 1.1TB. When combined with SSDs that can provide the endurance necessary to support write-intensive applications with cost-effective 19nm MLC NAND flash, the result is a dramatic reduction in storage total cost of ownership (TCO).

"This announcement marks the beginning of a new era in flash storage. We are bringing the cost effectiveness of 19nm flash to a high performance enterprise SAS SSD platform, without compromising on endurance or reliability. This unprecedented combination will enable storage architects and data center managers to design high performance, high reliable, high available storage systems while reducing costs, and minimizing TCO," said Mike Lakowicz, vice president of sales and marketing at Smart Storage Systems.

The Optimus Eco has begun sampling with select customers and will be generally available in June 2013.
