Anobit flash can take a pounding for 5 years

Great endurance for startup's new SSD

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

EMC World Israeli startup Anobit has introduced a Genesis SSD which lasts for five years when writing 4TB of data a day.

Anobit uses memory signal processing (MSP) technology, based on digital signal processing technology to extract usable signals from multi-level cell (MLC) flash cells that other controllers would consider worn out and non-functional: or that's its claim.

The Genesis, coming in 200GB and 400GB versions, has respectable performance numbers: 32,500 read IOPS, 24,000 write IOPS, 245MB/sec sequential read bandwidth, and 200MB/sec sequential write. Some other enterprise SSD suppliers have better performance numbers, but the real kicker is the endurance.

4TB/day for five years is pretty damn good and Anobit, exhibiting at EMC World, seems pretty confident about its storage array supplier qualification prospects. EMC has said it is ready to move to MLC flash and qualify suppliers. Clearly Anobit thinks it's in with a chance. ®
