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 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 had appointed Melbourne based Solid State Central as its new distributor for the SSD market in Australia.

In October 2015 - Solidata launched the Rana - a 2.5" SATA MLC SSD with a terabyte raw capacity and 3 seconds hold up time for military grade industrial applications which need high R/W throughput and fast enough IOPS performance.
The size of the business opportunities represented by storage class memories has become apparent by analyzing the gains made possible by earlier generations of enterprise SSDs.

Solidata ships military grade 2.5" MLC SSD with IOPS attitude
Editor:- October 16, 2015 - Solidata recently announced shipments of a new rugged 2.5" SATA military grade industrial SSD with 1TB raw (972.5GB usable) MLC SSD - for high capacity, performance demanding applications in harsh environments. R/W for 4KB blocks is approximately 70K IOPS.

Solidata says the new Rana which has regular RAM cache (1GB DDR) and 3 seconds capacitor hold up time is available with all the features you'd expect from a military grade SSD (such as full drive auto erase in under 18S) but - as it uses MLC instead of SLC - it can be a more cost-effective alternative for many applications such as airborne/ shipborne digital recording systems, pipeline inspection and remote DVRs.

An extremely long example of hold up time is the Rana - a 2.5" rugged SSD from Solidata - which (at 3 seconds) has the longest hold up time I'm aware of in a device this size and with this type of capacity, ruggedness and performance.
