Thursday Foremay revealed its EC188 D-series 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch solid state drive series designed for enterprise servers and workstations applications. The company is currently shipping the drives in small quantities for now, however Foremay indicated that volume production is scheduled to kick in sometime in August.
Boasting a SAS (serial Attached SCSI) 6.0 Gbps interface, the new EC188 D-series offers capacities of up to 400 GB. Foremay's SSDs also deliver high random read/write IOPs up to 30,000/25,000, read speeds of up to 250 MB/s, and write speeds of up to 200 MB/s. Foremay said that this new line is ideal for 3D modeling, medical imagine, high end gaming machines, and many other applications.
"Our SAS solid state drives are designed to meet the ever increasing demands for SSD applications for enterprise servers and other high end computing machines," said Jason Hoover, Foremay’s VP Marketing. "With high IOPS, high reliability and long endurance combined in the SAS SSD, system owners can now significantly reduce the system hardware TOC and maintenance cost, as well as annual electricity bills, especially in large scale enterprise server clusters and data centers."
