FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., Aug. 12 -- Viking Technology, an industry leading supplier of Solid State Drives (SSDs), Non-Volatile Dual In-line Memory Module (NVDIMMs), and DRAM, today announced that SolidFire has selected its SATADIMM SSD as both the cache SSD and boot volume SSD for their storage nodes. Viking Technology's SATADIMM SSD enables SolidFire to offer enhanced products by increasing both the number and the total capacity of SSDs in their solution.
"The Viking SATADIMM gives us an additional SSD within the chassis allowing us to dedicate more drives towards storage capacity, while storing boot and metadata information securely inside the system," says Adam Carter, Director of Product Management at SolidFire. "Viking's SATADIMM technology is unique in the market and an important part of our hardware design."
SATADIMM is an enterprise-class SSD in a Dual In-line Memory Module (DIMM) form factor that resides within any empty DDR3 DIMM socket. The drive enables SSD caching and boot capabilities without using a hard disk drive bay. The integration of Viking Technology's SATADIMM not only boosts overall system performance but allows SolidFire to minimize potential human errors associated with data center management, such as accidentally removing a boot or cache drive when replacing an adjacent failed drive.
"We are excited to support SolidFire with an optimal solid state solution that delivers increased value to their customers compared to traditional SSDs," says Adrian Proctor, VP of Marketing, Viking Technology. "SATADIMM is a solid state drive that takes advantage of existing empty DDR3 sockets and provides a valuable increase in both performance and capacity."
SATADIMM is a 6Gb SATA SSD with capacities up to 512GB. A next generation SAS solution with capacities of 1TB & 2TB will be available early in 2014. For more information, visit our website www.vikingtechnology.com or email us at email@example.com.
