Virtium Expands High-Capacity I-Temp Solid-State Drive Family

1TB M.2 SATA, 2TB NVMe SSDs Added to Industrial-Grade StorFly Line Featuring 4TB SATA Drives, Protecting IIoT Data in Extreme-Temperature Environments.

Virtium announced the expansion of its StorFly line of industrial-grade SSDs. The expanded Virtium StorFly line features industrial temperature (I-Temp) support for continuous operation in temperatures (from -40°C to 85°C).

StorFly drives are designed to provide secure data storage for demanding applications such as data logging and high-definition video and audio. These applications require a balance between the maximum allowable capacity and drive integrity that can be compromised by heat and other adverse conditions. The StorFly line with I-Temp now includes SSDs with up to four terabytes (TB) of capacity: 1TB M.2 SATA, 2TB M.2 NVMe, and 4TB 2.5-inch SATA.

To combat heat dissipation that can cause drive failure, both to the new StorFly SSDs and the critical data they store, Virtium applied its thermal management process and built the drives around the 3D NAND flash.

The new drives use only 3D NAND flash that can withstand harsh environments. Coupled with I-Temp support, the SSDs are also able to tolerate and operate in extreme high and low temperatures common with IIoT, M2M, and industrial-embedded applications. For an extra level of data security, the drives are available with optional SSD encryption engines.

All Virtium StorFly SSDs are supported by StorKit software tools. StorKit modules provide users the ability to optimize, protect, manage and qualify SSDs, and speed migration from single- to multi-level-cell flash.
