Adata has launched their newest line of Server SSDs, the SR1010. While this drive is designed with server environments in mind, there is nothing that holds a quality minded enthusiast back from using these drives. After all, every one likes the best data security possible, but it comes with a premium price.
The new Adata SR1010 features the very important Power-Loss Protection (PLP) that helps prevent data crashes caused by system failures. The drive also supports SMART for easy hardware monitoring and has an ECC Recovery that can correct up to 55 bits per 512-byte sector (BCH). It also comes with a guarantee to work great with pretty much every enterprise system you could think of. For the Linux users it supports both SUSE Enterprise and Red Hat Enterprise, for Windows it is WHQL certified and the virtual environments are covered with both Citrix and WMWare certifications.
Adata used the Seagate (SandForce/LSI) SF-2581 controller and Multi-Level Cell (MLC) NAND Flash Memory with enhanced NAND sorting methodology. This helps these drives to reach sequential read/write speeds of up to 550/550 MB/s. They can also achieve 4KB random read/write speeds of up to 73,000/45,000 IOPS. There are three available capacities to choose from: 100GB, 240GB and 480GB. These disks should be great in anything from data centres and embedded devices all the way to the data-safety minded individual.
The power consumption is 2.25 watts in idle and 4.1 watts when in use. You should be able to depend on these drives for a very long time as Adata only used the best components in these drives. To back that statement, the Adata SR-1010SS come with a 5-year warranty and are rated for up to 2 million hours of MTBF. The drives have a default 2.5-inch form-factor, are 7mm high and weighs 63 grams.
There is no word on availability or pricing yet but judging by its predecessor, they aren’t going to be cheap, but you get what you pay for.
Thank you Adata for providing us with these information
