SAN DIEGO -- BiTMICRO Networks, a pioneer in intelligent flash solid state storage solutions continues its relentless pursuit for storage innovation with the announcement of the E-Disk Altima™ E3S320 solid state flash disk. Claiming its seat as the manufacturer of the world’s first Ultra320 SCSI flash drive, this time the E-Disk® Altima™ Ultra320 SCSI drive will offer an astounding 1.6 terabytes of storage capacity in a standard 3.5-inch form factor, a most welcome development for the highly demanding enterprise, military and industrial applications.

The E-Disk® Altima™ Ultra320 SCSI flash SSD is expected to deliver a rigid host of storage advantages, including sustained data transfer rates of up to 230 MB/sec (peaking at 320 MB/sec in burst mode). The E3S320 flash solid state drive will utilize single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash which, when combined with BiTMICRO’s patented wear leveling and proprietary BCH Error Correction Code technologies, delivers unprecedented data integrity and drive longevity.

Given their mission critical nature and hostile operating environments, military, aerospace and industrial applications impose higher performance, security, and reliability standards for storage. E-Disk® Altima™ Ultra320 SCSI solid state drive’s rugged specifications are projected to exceed these requirements by far, with operating temperatures between –40 degrees C to 85 degrees C, operating shock of up to 1500 Gs, and patented securErase® and PowerGuard® technologies.

“Ruggedness has always been the strength of flash SSDs in the military market, and the forthcoming addition of the E-Disk® Altima™ Ultra320 SSD to BiTMICRO’s line-up will shore up the company’s support for I/O intensive and high-capacity applications,” remarked Rudy Bruce, Executive Vice President for Marketing and Sales at BiTMICRO Networks. “This is a huge technological leap that virtually erased the advantages of other storage solutions in terms of capacity and performance,” Bruce explained.
