who's who in SSD? - ATP Electronics

by Zsolt Kerekes, editor - - February 2014

I've been writing about ATP's flash memory cards on - since 2003. Before that - my editorial coverage of the company was focused on their server RAM.

In 2010 I noted on these pages that ATP already had a broad product line in the industrial SSD market.

ATP's "Velocity" brand of SSDs is one of the many examples in my article - Power, Speed and Strength Metaphors in SSD brands

Now (in 2014) ATP's embedded SSD product line has been extended to include more form factors and interfaces.

Among other things - I noticed recently that ATP publishes cross reference guides - so that buyers who have slots in their legacy products which use particular SSDs from competing or discontinued / EOL industrial SSD product lines from WD or Stec - can find suggested replacements - which offer compatible features not just at the speed and capacity level - but also including some secure erase options.
