Super Talent Announces the ShuttleCraft SAS SSD

Another day, another new SSD offering appears. This week Super Talent announced a new line of SAS SSDs, the "ShuttleCraft" Series SAS SSD.

Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) is a new interface standard designed to meet the storage needs of the Enterprise market. SAS features key benefits required by enterprise servers including: high performance, strong reliability and advanced management features.

The ShuttleCraft S will be available using SLC flash in 60GB and 120GB capacities, and the ShuttleCraft M will be available using MLC flash to achieve 120GB and 240GB capacities.

ShuttleCraft SSDs will be available in July. Prices haven't yet been revealed, but enterprise-class SSDs have never been on the cheaper end.

    Sure it is a 'new interface'. Only it is over 6 years old. Like saying the intel core architecture is a 'new architecture'.

  • You probably some serious $$$ for this.
    Although the regular MLC SSD's should not be that expensive.

    Glad to see more enterprise SAS SSDs hitting the market. More competition means the insane "enterprise SSD" prices will come down, and that means I can spec better server hardware to fit my budget at work.

    And all I have to say to Nebun, who can't get 4 SSDs to run smoothly while the rest of us can get smooth response with just one SSD... "You're doing it wrong."

    If they want to compete they better be looking to match Pliant SAS SSD's.
