Next generation SSD

Filed under: News,Storage — Nate @ 4:04 am

Another interesting article from our friends at The Register. This one talking about a new startup which is promising SLC-like peformance and reliability for MLC-like prices.


says the 200GB product has a five-year endurance at 2TB/day write data and the 400GB model a five-year endurance at 4TB/day. This is with random, non-compressible data.


Genesis has a 3Gbit/s SATA interface and has a 30,000 random read IOPS rating (4KB blocks), and a 20,000 random write IOPS rating. It provides 180MB/s sustained write and 220MB/s sustained read bandwidth.

Certainly looks interesting, not nearly as fast (or reliable) as say Fusion IO SLC or MLC for that matter, but probably a bit cheaper too.
