Who's who in SSD? - Solidata

by Zsolt Kerekes, editor - - November 2014

When Solidata first emerged onto the international stage in October 2008 - its main focus was 2.5" SATA SSDs based on SandForce SSD controllers.

Solidata entered the Top 10 SSD Companies list in Q4 2008. (At that time there were 92 companies in the SSD market.)

The company stayed in the list for several quarters - but then due to the vast number of other vendors which entered the 2.5" SSD market in 2009 - the advantage of being among the early companies deploying SandForce controllers wasn't enough of a difference to sustain a marketing edge.

And during the next 3-4 years I didn't hear anything especially interesting from the company.

Nowadays Solidata is focusing on the extended temperature (-55 to +95 degrees C) industrial SSD and military SSD (upto 125 degrees C) markets

Most of these products are SLC based - and the range also includes a PATA SSD - the Carina-S - a high capacity product which can extend the market life of systems which have been designed around this legacy interface.
Solidata mentions in SSD History

In March 2009 - a test report published by Tom's Hardware commented on the high power consumption of Solidata's fast 2.5" flash SSDs.

In January 2009 - Solidata was listed for the first time in the Q4 2008 edition of the Top 10 SSD Companies

In April 2009 - Solidata announced it has appointed Melbourne based Solid State Central as its new exclusive distributor for the SSD market in Australia.

In July 2009 - Solidata dropped out of the 9th quarterly edition of the - Top 10 SSD Companies - Q2 2009. Rank was #14.

An extremely long example of hold up time is the Rana - a 2.5" rugged SSD from Solidata - which has the longest hold up time I'm aware of in a device this size and with this type of capacity, ruggedness and performance.

What became clear in 2014 - is that there is now a greater degree of specialization within the industrial SSD market.
what changed in the SSD market in 2014?

the difference between "good enough" and the "best" endurance architecture schemes can still be 2x, 3x or 100x - even when using the same memory.
