VANCOUVER, Wash. — The data at rest (DAR) storage company Digistor is rolling out its commercial-class PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSDs.
The new drives are intended to deliver fast SSD performance for demanding applications, including artificial intelligence (AI), video editing, visualization, and scientific and engineering modeling and analysis, according to Digitstor last month.
Non-encrypted commercial PCIe Gen 4 SSDs are available. Self-encrypting TCG Opal 2.0 versions of the PCIe Gen 4 SSDs will be available in Q1 2022.
Available in the M.2 NVMe form factor and offering a capacity ranging from 500 GB to 4 TB, the commercial SSDs are designed for a range of devices, including laptops, desktops, workstations, and purpose-built systems.
The SSDs also use the latest in PCIe Gen 4 controller technology, making them 2x faster than their PCIe Gen 3-equivalent drives.
The SSD’s CrystalDiskMark results are below:
- Read performance: up to 7200 MBps (2.1x faster than commercial PCIe Gen 3 SSDs)
- Write performance: up to 6850 MBps (2.3x faster than commercial PCIe Gen 3 SSDs)
“These products reinforce our technology leadership and ensure customers that we have diverse storage offerings, including solutions for encrypting or physically securing sensitive and classified DAR,” said Murray Ellis, VP of Engineering, Digistor.
