updated 10:30 pm EST, Mon December 13, 2010

Capacities from 100GB to 400GB

Toshiba has introduced a new line of solid-state drives (SSDs) geared for enterprise customers. The MKx001GRZB series is built around a 2.5-inch form factor, pairing 32nm NAND flash with a 6Gb/sec SAS interface. The drives are designed for enterprise servers, local storage, or network-attached storage systems.

The new drives are claimed to reach random sustained 90,000 IOPS during read operations and 17,000 IOPS while writing data, with sequential sustained speeds of up to 510MB/sec read and 230MB/sec write throughput. The speeds are over three times as fast as Toshiba's enterprise HDDs, while power consumption drops to just 6.5 watts during operation.

The MKx001GRZB drives will be available in 100GB, 200GB and 400GB capacities. Toshiba expects the drives to ship in the first quarter of 2011, although pricing has yet to be announced.
