SSD Utility for Industrial Devices
With industrial devices, downtime can be costly, disruptive, and, in some cases, dangerous. For many users, SSD Utility is a critical part of avoiding downtime. SSD Utility is a software management program that developers can integrate into a solid state drive (SSD). It monitors the operations of the drive and detects performance issues or unexpected activities that could signal a problem. When users are alerted to these issues, they can take steps to make the appropriate adjustments to avoid failures. Although SSD Utility is not the only kind of software that monitors drive performance, it is extremely useful for industrial applications that cannot afford to deal with downtime. In fact, for many industrial users, having some kind of integrated system that helps them manage device performance is a key factor in selecting an embedded drive.
Understanding SSD Utility
SSD Utility software gives users a wealth of information about the health of a drive and how it is working within the application and current operating conditions. Through SSD Utility, users can get information about the overall state of the drive, such as the amount of storage available and used blocks, as well as the strength of the connections with the application. Users also receive alerts about necessary updates for the drive.
Importantly, users can make adjustments to a drive’s operations in order to maximize its performance. Because SSDs have a finite lifespan, ensuring that they are operating at the highest possible level of efficiency is important. Making adjustments in response to information from the SSD Utility helps to reduce early failures. This info also allows users to better plan for the transition to new drives so that they can minimize downtime. When SSD Utility is combined with lifecycle management support and locked BOMs from Delkin, industrial users can get the most from their embedded drives and avoid the costs and disruption of unexpected failures.
Industrial SSDs and SSD Utility
Industrial SSDs are designed specifically for use in industrial devices, which have unique operating requirements. They feature extended temperature ranges, typically from -45 degrees C to 85 degrees C. This allows them to handle the rugged operating conditions that are typical in industrial applications in fields like healthcare, aerospace, automation, and transportation. Industrial SSDs are also able to tolerate high levels of shock and vibration, which may be common in industrial operating environments. SSDs can be very small to accommodate the increasing demand for smaller devices, but offer powerful storage with large capacities.
SSD Utility complements these features. When you choose Delkin as your SSD supplier, you already get a locked BOM, lifecycle management, and a long list of customization options to boost the efficiency of your drive operations. The addition of SSD Utility means that you can feel confident that a drive is always working in the way you expect it to. If a problem does arise, you’ll see it before it becomes catastrophic.
