SanDisk unveils the X300 series SSDs

The major manufacturer of solid-state drives SanDisk has unveiled the new X300 series of SSDs. The new line brings the latest developments in X3 technology as well as robust error-correction for increased reliability and better peace of mind. The new drives also come with an improved SSD Dashboard that provides visibility into the drive’s performance, security and available firmware updates for peak performance all the time, every time.

“The SanDisk X300 SSD is our first X-series drive to incorporate the use of our nCache 2.0 tiered caching architecture and X3, three bit-per-cell technology, to deliver a highly optimized and reliable solution for both CIOs and their employees,” said Kevin Conley, senior vice president and general manager, client storage solutions at SanDisk. “This mainstream corporate drive not only provides the reliability and performance companies need today, but also helps CIOs reduce total cost of ownership and shorten the time to return on investment.”

The new SanDisk X300 series is built around the company’s advanced 1Ynm X3 flash technology and includes nCache 2.0 technology, which is a next generation tiered caching technology that combines SLC and X3/TLC flash blocks for improved endurance, better efficiency and increased performance in office applications, media creation and financial transactions. The X300 SSDs also include a robust error handling mechanism that utilizes XOR recovery technology to implement an extra layer of data protection.

“Corporate IT environments are challenged by a mobile workforce that needs more reliable, higher-performing devices to maintain a competitive advantage,” said Jeff Janukowicz, Research Director for Solid State Drives and Enabling Technologies at IDC. “Over the last few years, SSDs have increased capacity points and become more cost effective, enabling corporations today to take advantage of the inherent performance and reliability benefits for their mainstream business users.”

The SanDisk X300 line can be used in a wide range of computing platforms and is available in capacities of 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB in all major form factors. This is the place to say that the most spacious 1 TB model is available just as a 2.5-inch drive. The pricing of the drives is unclear as of now.
