Integral Memory Announces SVR-PRO SATA III SSDs Featuring Novachips HLNAND – Exponential Leaps in Capacity!

UK-based Integral Memory is announcing that they have partnered up with Novachips to create a new series of solid-state drives (SSDs) that provide superior performance and an exponential leap in capacity.  The first products of this partnership are the SVR-PRO SATA III SSDs, which feature a unique storage control architecture that is ideal for the ever-growing requirement of enterprise data centers to ‘up-scale’ their storage systems.  This newly available capacity expansion capability should dramatically drive the continued growth of server rooms across Europe.

integral-svr-pro-100-both-form-factorsIntegral’s SVR-PRO SATA SSD 100-SRI and 200-SMW models provide up to 8TB of data storage capacity, and are geared toward the intensive usage required for today’s ‘big data’ environments.  The 100-SRI is geared toward performance-intensive applications, with a good balance of low latency and high read and write IOPS.  This makes the 100-SRI ideal for file servers, web servers, streaming and Video on Demand.
