“Bringing Intelligence to Storage” ™
Irvine, Calif. – February 22, 2017 – NGD Systems, a pioneer creating intelligent solid state drives (SSD) for public and private cloud data centers, today announced the availability of the industry’s highest density storage solution. Shipping immediately and currently being qualified at leading OEMs, the Catalina SSD is available in capacities up to 24TB with 3D TLC flash in a PCIe edge card form factor.
“The Catalina is the industry’s highest capacity PCIe NVMe SSD, designed and optimized for applications requiring consistent and low latency mass storage”, said Nader Salessi, founder and chief executive officer of NGD Systems. “We are setting a new metric for energy and storage density to meet a key concern within data center and cold storage applications alike.”
At less than 0.65 watts per terabyte, the new benchmark of the Catalina SSD achieved by using NGD System’s patented Elastic FTL (Flash Translation Layer) algorithm, and the incorporation of its advanced error correction capabilities, which enables 3D TLC NAND flash in enterprise applications. Not only is this watt per terabyte ratio more efficient than that of any other SSD currently shipping, it is also better than the highest capacity Enterprise HDD currently shipping. Optimized for read intensive applications, the Catalina SSD is ideal for use in Content Delivery Networks (CDN), Just a Bunch of Flash drives (JBOFs), and media servers.
