Choosing Solid State Storage Companies

Contact

 

Solid state storage is the preferred form of storage for industrial applications, but where that storage comes from matters. There are several factors to consider when choosing between solid state storage companies. By choosing the right company, you can feel confident in the storage selection you’ve made for your application and in the knowledge that you will have support when you need it. If you’re in the market for solid state storage, this information will help you select the best company to meet your needs.

 

A Primer on Solid State Storage

Solid state storage is a format that stores data on microchips. It is an alternative to hard disk drives and magnetic tape storage. Solid state storage, or SSS, has been widely embraced for both consumer and industrial products over these alternatives for several reasons. Hard disk drive storage involves mechanical parts that have to function properly in order for data to be saved. With a hard disk drive, or HDD, a disk must spin during read and write operations. The mechanical components are prone to failure and can also lead to slow operations.

 

Magnetic tape storage is prone to physical and environmental damage, which is particularly problematic for industrial devices. Files can also be difficult to find on magnetic tape storage.

 

SSS is less prone to damage than HDDs or magnetic tape storage, thanks to its electrical storage operations. It also works faster and can tolerate industrial operating conditions. SSS can be found in three form factors: solid state modules, solid state drives, and solid state cards.

 

Solid State Storage Companies

Many companies offer SSS in various form factors, but not all products or the companies behind them are created equal. There are several things to consider when selecting between solid state storage companies to provide the storage solutions you need.

 

The first thing is to ensure that the SSS company you are considering provides the right grade of storage. For industrial applications, SLC, or single-level cell, flash memory is generally the best choice. It offers the highest possible level of data security and the longest lifespan. It is also helpful to choose an SSS company that can provide customization options and controlled BOMs, so your SSS works as needed for your application.
