Toshiba unveils SSD: Claims hard-as-nails kit has the write stuff

30 full drive writes a day for 5 years, apparently

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Toshiba has tweaked the design of its PX02SS flash drive so it can sustain 30 full drive writes a day for five years through a 12gig SAS interface.

This SSD is made from Tosh’s 24nm enterprise-class NAND (eNAND) and comes in 100GB, 200GB, 400GB and 800GB capacity points. The 30 drive writes/day stat applies to all models. It means that, for example, the 800GB product can have 43.8PB written to it during its 5-year warranted life.

The performance is not bad either: according to the company, 130,000 random 4K read IOPS, 42,000 random write ones and 410 MiB/sec sequential write bandwidth. The 100 and 200GB models do 1,100 MiB/sec when sequential writing, while the 400 and 800GB versions run at a slightly slower 1,060 MiB/sec.

There are self-encryption models available for security-conscious customers. This is, El Reg understands, the highest-performing and highest endurance product in Toshiba’s PX02 line.

You can order and buy this new SSD now. ®
