Viking Modular to double SSD speed

SandForce technology helps ramp up performance

Mobile application security vulnerability report

We wrote about Viking Modular at the end of September, with its neat set of Elements SAS SSDs (solid state drives). The company plans to double their speed early next year.

The intention is to use SandForce's new SF-2000 controllers. Viking anticipates the small block read and write IOPS number jumping from 28,000 IOPS to 60,000 IOPS, and the sequential read and write bandwidth doubling from 250MB/sec to 500MB/sec.

Product will be ready for OEM qualification in the first quarter of 2011 and multiple form factors will be offered - thought to include both 1.8-inch and 2.5-inch. This should prompt a few more performance hard disk drive replacements. ®
