It is made for mission-critical and other industrial applications, not consumer systems
Having seen ultrabook SSDs and a regular solid-state drive line, we can now take a look at the newest addition to the world's supply of NAND Flash-based storage units aimed at enterprise and industrial applications.Foremay is the company behind the creation of the SC199 and TC166 solid-state drive series, which we will examine individually.
The former is aimed at mission-critical applications, like central server hubs and such, mainframes, etc.
The latter is composed of drives for terminal computing (electronic or electromechanical hardware device that is used for entering data into, and displaying data from larger computer systems).
Both drive collections stick to the 2.5-inch form factor and the thickness of 9.5 mm (7mm and 5 mm are the only smaller sizes).
The largest of the lot, or more capacious, has 2 TB of free space to store things, which is a good bonus over the high transfer rates inherent in all solid-state drives.
"By leveraging Foremay's patent pending technologies, we are proud to deliver the world's first 2 TB SSD in standard 2.5" SATA form factor," said Jack Winters, Foremay's CTO and co-founder.
"We hope our high reliability 2 TB SSD drives can help create more design freedom and storage space for both mission-critical and enterprise applications."
Foremay's new SSDs have Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T. ), Advanced Power Management (APM) and advanced error correction algorithm.
Fast erase, military secure erase and hardware-based encryption can also be added to the spec sheet, though they aren't default specs.
