Hitachi debuts industry-first 25 nm enterprise class SSD

Hitachi has released the Ultrastar SSD400S.B family and this is the reason why the Japanese company has laid claims to an industry first with a 25nm SLC NAND flash design.

The novelty is the result of collaboration between Hitachi and Intel and features 2.5-inch design with capacities of 100 GB, 200 GB and 400 GB and support for 6Gbps SCSI (SAS) interface.

The Ultrastar SSD400S.Bs boast 536MBps/502MBps read/write throughputs and 57,500/25,500 read/write IOPS and are built with security and longevity in mind. The drives also feature self-encryption, which they handle on themselves for better system-wide performance. Hitachi also claims that the 400 GB model can handle 35 PB of random writes before it malfunctions.

The drives carry a five-year warranty and are already shipping to OEMs.
