New Player Joins the Solid State Party

Mushkin Enhanced has officially joined the solid state drive game with the introduction of the Callisto series. With a read speed of 285 MB and write speed of 275 MB, the Callisto SSDs are high-performance competitors for the SanDisk and Intel solid state products. The Callisto series comes equipped with the SandForce SF-1200 controller and can be found in 60GB, 120GB, and 240GB storage sizes.

Toshiba Toys with 3D Memory

Toshiba has been discussing the possibility of producing 3D memory for quite some time, but with a new factory set to open in Japan in 2011, rumor has it that 3D memory is just around the corner. The company’s fifth factory will not only produce conventional NAND flash chips, but will reportedly be Toshiba’s foray into a new 3D memory approach. 3D memory will address existing limitations by building both horizontally and vertically.

Construction on the factory won’t begin until July, but Toshiba and SanDisk have reportedly been working on the 3D chips since 2008 in anticipation of this expansion.

New Removable Storage from Imation

The Defender Collection from Imation, consisting of seven products, has been enhanced with new encryption and security management tools. Ranging from flash drives and hard drives to Blu-ray discs and removable tape cartridges, the Defender Collection comes standard with certification from the Federal Information Processing Standardization (FIPS) 140.

Keith Schwartz, a director at Imation, calls this new series a first of its kind for the company.

“We’ve never had products that have had the authentication levels we’re talking about, never had products that had antivirus, never had products with central management, and never had products that were validated at a FIPS level,” Schwartz said.

The new products also include Imation’s DataGuard rf Tape Tracking System, DataGuard Transportation and Storage Cases, SecureScan for LTO tape cartridges, and DataGuard GPS (currently only available in Europe).
