Solid State Hard Disk(SSD)
Solid State Disk (SSD) is a computer external storage device based on permanent memory, such as flash or non-permanent memory, synchronous dynamic random access memory (SDRAM). Solid state hard disks are mostly made of the same shell size as traditional hard disks and use compatible interfaces, but some solid state hard disks also use PCI Express or Express Card as interfaces to break through the speed of existing hard disk transport interfaces or to place solid state hard disks in limited space (such as small pens, super mobile computers, etc.).
With the development of SSD solid-state mobile hard disk technology and the continuous decrease of flash memory price, the popularity of SSD solid-state hard disk is a general trend, and the market opportunities and profit space brought by its update and replacement are huge. At present, there are three main applications of SSD disk in storage.
three main applications of SSD
Use as large and secondary caches:
SSD disks applied to this function are commonly referred to as PCIe solid state storage acceleration cards, high performance acceleration cards, or PCIe flash cards, which increase the capacity of the storage cache layer and ensure security, thereby improving the overall performance of storage. Cards with this function are mainly single SSD disks, PCI-E SSD cards, or small disk groups.
Mixed with traditional disks to form hierarchical storage:
this is currently the way SSD disks are used for storage in a large number of ways. This structure takes full advantage of the performance advantages of traditional disks, such as large capacity, low cost, high read-write, high IOPS and low latency, and relies on hierarchical storage software to improve the function and performance of the overall storage system.
Construct pure SSD array:
With the maturity of flash memory technology, cost reduction, read and write life growth, manufacturers have developed pure SSD array to achieve high bandwidth, high IOPS, low latency, low power consumption and save valuable space.
Solid state hard disks (SSDs) are of interest to storage vendors and users because of their superior performance. Once the price falls, they will undoubtedly become the ideal storage medium for master data of disk arrays. As the leader of the domestic storage industry, under the background of cloud computing, how will the tide take advantage of its advantages in the domestic storage market and seize the opportunity of the rapid development of SSD market?
Tidal Storage is based on user needs and provides customized storage products and solutions to help users organize, manage, and use valuable business data most effectively. Currently, the Tidal Storage product line has implemented support for some SSD disk applications as a secondary cache to enhance system performance; By using hierarchical storage technology, the disk array technology combining SSD disk and mechanical disk is developed to solve the bottleneck problem of system performance and save cost for users. Provides full SSD array system customized by high end customers.
With the expansion of the market demand for SSD and the promotion of R&D, more and more SSD disks will be used in storage. The trend will also introduce storage products with more technical content, more market demand and customer application integrated with SSD core technology.
In the current consumer electronics market, the more popular brands of solid state hard disk are Kingston, Western Data, Memoboss, etc. In fact, as traditional enterprises of solid state hard disk, Kingston and Western Data occupy a large market share and are expensive. As an emerging brand, the biggest reason Memoboss can take over the world is the perfect cost-performance ratio. Relying on Shenzhen Electronics production technology and strong consumer channels, Memoboss Networks will become the largest solid state hard disk brand in the world in the next few years.
