Phison Electronics Corp. has launched an advanced Enterprise SSD solution called X1.
Phison collaborated with Seagate to develop the X1 controller and SSD solution.
The X1 controller-based solid-state drive (SSD) platform offers more than 30% faster data read speed than the existing solution for the same power used. The X1 features U.3 PCIe Gen 4×4 dual port and comes in storage sizes of up to 15.36 TB. The SSD packs higher data density and has been launched to bolster the industry’s enterprise-class product offerings for a variety of applications such as AI, Cloud Storage and 5G edge computing.
According to the company, the customizable platform offers higher computing with lesser energy consumption than any other competitor’s product. The controller IP and firmware has been developed in Phison’s R&D facility making it one of the the most stable design at product launch.
“We combined Seagate’s proprietary data management and customer integration capabilities with Phison’s cutting-edge technology to create highly customized SSDs that meet the ever-evolving needs of the enterprise storage market,” said Sai Varanasi, senior vice president of product and business marketing at Seagate Technology. “Seagate is excited to partner with Phison on developing advanced SSD technology to provide the industry with increased density, higher performance and power efficiency for all mass capacity storage providers.”
The X1 SSD is designed to take on enterprise workloads and is equipped with high durability to move enterprise data for the long haul. It can run Artificial Intelligence (AI) to provide insights and produce data that can be leveraged to research adaptive models in a variety of important industries including healthcare, education, science and more.
“Current industry solutions miss the mark and the X1 reinforces Phison’s commitment to elevate the bar in enterprise storage by delivering the world’s best-in-class enterprise SSD,” said Sebastien Jean, Chief Technology Officer of Phison. “Coupled with Seagate’s deep industry knowledge and Phison’s advanced architecture, the X1 SSD was created to bolster the industry’s enterprise-class product offerings for a variety of applications such as AI, Cloud Storage and 5G edge computing.”
