Choosing Between Solid State Storage Companies

 

The world of embedded storage has evolved quickly alongside devices that are becoming more powerful and smaller in size. Once dominated by hard disk drive storage, in which information was written on a spinning, magnetic disk, most embedded storage now comes in the form of solid state storage. Today’s computer systems can move faster than hard disk drive storage can provide data. The switch to solid state storage, or SSS, resolves this problem while offering many other advantages. However, where you get your SSS matters. Not all solid state storage companies offer the same quality, nor do they offer the same levels of customer support. Working with a solid state storage company that is able to assist with customizations, specialized testing, and high-quality products is especially important for designers and OEMs working with industrial devices. Here is a closer look at what you need to know about solid state storage and how to choose the right supplier.

 

Solid State Storage Benefits

The rise of SSS happened because developers needed memory that could keep up with the rapidly increasing speed capabilities of modern CPUs. Hard disk drive latency was an ongoing problem, and the technology surrounding HDDs was not moving quickly enough to keep up with CPU development. SSS provides lightning-fast read and write speeds, allowing the storage to match CPU processing capabilities. SSS also provides greater reliability and a longer lifespan than hard disk drive storage.

 

Solid State Storage Types

SSS systems are available with either NAND or NOR flash memory. NAND flash is the most common kind, particularly in industrial applications, because it is faster than NOR and provides non-volatile storage. There are three common forms of SSS available: SSDs, or solid state drives, SSCs, or solid state cards, and SSMs, or solid state modules.

 

Solid State Storage Companies

There are many companies that offer SSS solutions for engineers and OEMs. When selecting a company, there are multiple factors to consider. One is the kind of customer service provided. Can the company help you make a decision about storage solutions based on your specific device design? You should also look for the ability to customize your storage and for lifecycle management support so you can easily transition from one storage format to another, as needed.
