In a Q&A session, Solid State Disks’ Sales Director, James Hilken looks at the latest trends and demands surrounding the areas of memory and storage and what the sector needs to consider when designing and developing new systems.
SCSI STORAGE DEVICES
Solid State Disks Ltd (SSDL) is a renowned manufacturing company, developing superior-quality SCSI storage devices that make the best use of exclusive FPGA based technology well-integrated in the devices. The industrial grade SCSI Storage devices solves the problem of costly repairs and replacement of failing and ageing SCSI storage devices. This includes SCSI magneto optical (MOD), hard disk (HDD), SCSI floppy (FDD) and SCSI tape. Solid State Disks Ltd (SSDL) also produces true floppy (34 pin, 26 pin) interface storage devices that can be used in legacy equipment.
SCSI SSD Drive
A perfect combination of Solid State CompactFlash card technology, all industry-standard with results-oriented SCSI drive architectures (SASI, SCSI-1, SCSI-2). This provides a solid state, highly reliable drop-in replacement for magneto optical, hard disk, floppy and tape drives. While making no changes to the SCSI Host it is possible to program the drive completely making SCSI driver implementation easy and convenient.
SCSI Solid State Drive
In order to emulate SCSI Solid State Drive, the SCSI Solid State Drive CF2SCSI drive can be used. These are available in variants like 5.25 inches, 3.5 inches and 2.5 inches. These variants are SCSI magneto optical drives that include (SCSI Sony, SCSI Fujitsu, SCSI Ricoh, SCSI ZIP, SCSI Jazz, and SCSI Bernoulli). Besides these, SCSI tape drives (QIC quarter-inch SCSI DAT, Pertec half-inch and SCSI DLT 3490) and (TEAC) SCSI floppy drives are also available. Development of SCSI Solid State Drive emulations can be easily developed using full programmability advantage.
SCSI Drive Replacement
Legacy SSD Drive Replacement Support to OEM’s are offered for ageing SCSI Drives that may need quick SCSI Drive replacement support. The design, manufacture and support of SCSIFLASH drive is offered by Reactive Group, at our UK based head office, and at our other US based location at Arraid LLC, Phoenix. Helping vital 'Through Life Support' (TLS) services and SCSI obsolescence.
SCSI industrial grade products at SCISSD such as SCSIFlash and CF2SCSI drive not only make use of a 5.25 inch or 3.5 inch form factor but also support CompactFlash drive up to 512GB. There are two package types available for sale that come with removable CompactFlash card slot as Jazz, tape, Zip or floppy drive replacement that is externally removable or hard disk replacement with a card that is not externally removable.
The SCSI products manufactured by Solid State Disks Ltd are Industrial Grade SCSI products prices for a range of obsolete and End of Life (EOL) SCSI drives for sale. We can replace obsolete SCSI products such as Magneto Optic (MO), SCSI Floppies, SCSI Hard Disk Drives SCSI Tape and SCSI PC cards.
No additional software or register changes are required to the legacy host. Custom capacities are available for systems that require exact capacity value. Custom sector sizes are also available.
SCSI products manufactured by Solid State Disks Ltd (SSDL) offer varying size options in emulation disk sector that includes 512 bytes, 256 bytes, 1024 bytes, 768 bytes, 4096 bytes and 2048 bytes.
Global sales of our solid state drive replacements are supported through partners in USA, Europe and Asia.
CF2SCSI™ and SCSIFLASH™ Product Benefits
• Deployed and proven on multiple platforms
• Currently supporting capacities up to 512 GB
• Firmware controlled by SCSI interface is adaptable to hosts’ legacy software SCSI drivers
• A transparent interface from SCSI bus to SCSI Solid State Flash drive
• Eliminates the problems with traditional electro-mechanical/magnetic media storage devices
• Fast, efficient field replacement
• Lower power consumption, noise and heat
• Fast write speeds
• Increased reliability
• Reduced unplanned downtime
• No additional software required for operation due to its SCSI data storage/bootable drive
• Network feature allows network back-up and restore capability enabling vital data back-ups to be made as a complete bit for bit image of its CompactFlash card at any given point in time.
SCSISSD is currently available in two physical types of packaging
