CRU Data Security Group LLC in Vancouver, Washington, is introducing the Secure High Performance Storage (SHIPS) removable PCI Express and NVMe data storage for industrial, military, and high-performance commercial trusted computing applications.

This secure high performance storage is designed in a way to secure, store, and transport data quickly and cost-effectively.

“Cybersecurity is more important than ever before and we’re proud to deliver the SHIPS platform to provide physical data security for high-performance NVMe storage,” Randal Barber, CEO of CRU Data Security Group, said. “We developed the SHIPS platform to address the gap in the market for a removable NVMe storage solution that combines features critical for security and performance conscious users with a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) philosophy,” he added.

“The SHIPS platform is the ‘easy button’ our OEM and system integrator partners need to incorporate modular NVMe data security and transport into their desktop, mobile, and tactical computing solutions,” Barber continued. “We applied our expertise to address the demanding thermal management, signal integrity, and interoperability challenges posed by PCIe/NVMe. This means our partners can streamline their labor-intensive and expensive testing and integration processes. CRU is doing the heavy lifting so they can rest assured that their customer’s security and compliance needs are met,” he further added.

The system – SHIPS helps in easy absorption of information from tactical, IoT, and other devices where there is a low-speed network. Also, it easily transports high-volume data quickly and securely from sensors to command-and-control centers.

SHIPS trusted computing data storage platform is easily available for incorporation in aircrafts, vehicles, and custom applications. It provides the freedom needed to design outside the standard guidelines, which means no extra engineering effort is needed.

The system has multiple products such as,

– Cable and adapters for host computers that are tested and qualified to ensure high-performance signal integrity.

– The QX448 ingestion frame for 5.25-inch bays that support four SHIPS storage modules working together at full bandwidth.

– The QX118 ingestion frame for 9-millimeter optical disk drive slots that supports one SHIPS storage module.

– The Q80 standard and Q80R ruggedized SHIPS high-speed NVMe storage modules in 512 GB, 1 TB, and 2 TB capacities, qualified for over 20,000 mate/demate cycles.

These platform products are available for qualified system builders and integrators worldwide.
