Until prices come down to pedestrian levels, there's only so much headway SSD vendors can make in the consumer market. That isn't the case on the enterprise side, where companies have the money to spend on pricier SSDs, and a greater need for faster performing drives.
Along those lines, we've seen a few SSDs aimed at SMBs in recent times, the most recent of which is Super Talent's new ShuttleCraft Series SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) SSD family.
"Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) is a new interface standard designed to meet the storage needs of the Enterprise market.," Super Talent said . "SAS features key benefits required by enterprise servers including: high performance, strong reliability and advanced management features. Already known for extreme reliability, Solid State Disk (SSD) technology can be improved to meet the needs of the enterprise by implementing advanced: Wear Leveling, Bad Block Management, Error Correction and Power Failure Management features. These new features are the cornerstones of our ShuttleCraft Series SAS drive products."
The new drives come in both SLC and MLC flavors, including the ShuttleCraft S60 (60GB, SLC), S120 (120GB, SLC), M120 (120GB, MLC), and M240 (240GB, MLC).
Look for the ShuttleCraft Series to start shipping in July. No word yet on price.
