Editor's comments:- March 2014 - It's been many years since I first heard from Angelbird. As my main product interests are in the enterprise and mission critical markets (rather than consumer SSDs) - and world leading SSD companies (rather than geographically niche companies) I suppose that's only natural.

Angelbird - mentions from SSD market history

Editor's (original pre-launch) comments:- November 2010 - Angelbird is a small company, founded in 2009 in the UK (but later headquartered in Austria) which says it's developing a low entry cost, capacity-expandable high performance PCIe SSD - which it calls Wings.

Industry reports - and the company's own web site - talk about an imminent launch date.

Although the company has generated some pre-launch hype on various consumer SSD forums - it took over 30 days to respond to online queries I made using its web contact form. I would have phoned - but no phone number was listed.

Nice graphic images on its site, however. See also:- animal brands in the SSD market

Here's the email I got from Davide Rutigliano, Founder, Angelbird (November 25, 2010) which says more about the products.

"Sorry for the late reply, we have been overwhelmed with requests.

Each one of our drives can process well over 50,000 IOPS. A RAID made with four of such drives ought to produce very satisfactory results, although as you can understand, results will vary depending on the drives used on the board. We can only account for our own drives, designed especially for our Wings.

We will have enough time to discuss everything in further detail once we are ready to ship, which should be very, very soon."

"Flash wear out still presents a challenge to designers of high IOPS flash SSDs as the intrinsic effects at the cell level get worse with each new (planar) chip generation.

Although 3D nand may be the turning point at which raw intrinsic memory endurance stops worsening (or gets better) - 3D could also introduce new types of failure mechanism and R/W distrurbance sensitivities too."

PCIe SSDs for use in enterprise server acceleration have been shipping in the market since 2007. It's one of the most popular SSD subjects pursued by our readers (and has been since 2009).

With over 100 million enterprise PCIe ports already shipped - the converging PCIe SSD / server market is well positioned to expand into new applications.
