Like many other SSD makers Lite-On makes
SATA SSDs for the
enterprise markets -
in a variety of sizes.
Unlike most other SSD companies Lite-On was
early to see that significant opportunities might exist in the enterprise for

The P1P Series is a
PCIe SSD with capacities of 1TB and power loss protection circuit all in a small
form factor. This series is designed to offer the low latency through the PCIe
bus. The small form factor and high capacity allow enterprise customers to pack
more storage in a smaller footprint. The P1P Series can deliver sequential
read/write speeds of up to 610MB/s and 520MB/s while random read/write speeds
can be upto 95K/15K
drive has a MTBF of 2 million hours and an
rating of up to 1 drive write
per day for 5 years.
