Imation expands SSD line
Imation Corp. is not one company to rest on its laurels – they have just introduced an extension of its SSD product line that will target power users who seek performance above everything else. While the average SSD does pretty well on its own, there are still segments of the tech savvy population who crave for more and are willing to pay the price. Somce of these new products will be the PRO 7500 and the PRO 7000 PATA, which are incidentally powered by Mtron technology. More on the individual SSDs right after the jump.
Imation SSD PRO 7500
The SSD PRO 7500 series is an ideal solution for individual and business applications with extreme performance needs such as high-performance workstations, storage arrays, database servers, Web servers and other network appliances. Featuring an ultra-high-speed internal data bus, the PRO 7500 delivers extremely high-sustained read (130 MB/sec) and write speeds (120 MB/sec), impressive input and output operations per second (IOPS) performance of 83,000 sequential read and 19,000 random read, SATA 3.0 Mbps interface and virtually no seek time. With less than half the weight of traditional hard drives, plus reduced power consumption, the PRO 7500 packs a powerful solution with superior drive performance in a lightweight, power-efficient design. With mean-time-between failures (MTBF) of one million hours, the PRO 7500 provides outstanding product reliability in a rugged package designed for harsh environments.
Imation SSD PRO 7000 PATA
Imation SSD PRO 7000 PATA makes it easy to upgrade legacy equipment for high-performance needs using the standard PATA interface. Featuring an ultra-high-speed internal data bus, the PRO 7000 PATA delivers extremely high-sustained read (130 MB/sec) and write speeds (120 MB/sec), impressive IOPS performance of 27,000 sequential read and 18,000 random read with virtually no seek time. In addition to the expected SSD benefits of performance, reliability and environmental endurance, the PRO 7000 PATA makes it easy to install and use with standard PATA interface support providing an ideal solution for upgrading legacy equipment.
The Imation SSD PRO 7500 and PRO 7000 PATA will be available in the US in 2.5″ and 3.5″ flavors, coming in capacities ranging from 16GB all the way to 128GB, be it PATA or SATA interfaces. Pricing starts from $499 upwards, so you know that 128GB won’t exactly be kind on your pockets.
