SEOUL, Korea and SANTA CLARA, Calif. — The SSD controller company FADU Technology is in mass production for a pair of controllers designed with open-source standards.

The first-generation FC3081 and second-generation FC4121 SSD controllers are in mass production and designed to satisfy the “rigorous demands” of data center workloads, according to FADU this month.

The controllers are compliant with the Open Compute Project (OCP) NVMe Cloud SSD Specifications defined by data center providers.

The set of unified, interoperable standards, enable SSD and SSD controller vendors to “work efficiently with next-generation storage design.”

The SSD controllers have been adopted by a few major companies, including memory and SSD companies.

FADU’s FC3081 deliver 100K IOPS/watt. 

FADU’s FC4121 doubles SSD performance over the first generation, with a sequential read of 7,300 KB/s, sequential write of 4,800 KB/s, random read of 1,500K IOPS, and random write of 185K IOPS.

“Clearing a major milestone by entering mass production, FADU has proven its capability to fulfill the demands from the global data center market,” said Jihyo Lee, CEO, FADU.
