JMR Makes Solid State Plug-In Card Generally Available

Californian storage systems integrator JMR Electronics has announced general availability of its latest SSD (Solid State Drive) plug-in offering, SiloStor.

This is a NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) SSD plug-in card available as a full-length, half-height PCIe 3.0 x8 drive providing 2TB or more of high performance solid stage storage to a server or personal workstation using flash NAND technology. The card occupies a x8 PCIe slot and can also be connected via Thunderbolt PCIe expansion to those computers offering this capability. In addition, the plug-in card is designed for long-life and touts an MTBF of 1.5 million hours with endurance rating of 200 Terabytes Written (TBW). Typical random 4K read speed is 90,000 IOPS (sequential read speed of 2,150 MB/s) with a write speed of 70,000 IOPS (sequential write speed of 1,500 MB/s).

Priced at $2,599 for the 2TB card it is not cheap and so is pitched at high end servers or workstations for compute intensive tasks such as video production, graphics and animation. Here it can prove cost effective by extending the life of top end servers or workstations where storage capacity has become a bottleneck. As an incentive here JMR is offering a 3-year warranty.
