• The X1 SSD configurable platform provides increased computational power with minimal overall power requirements.

Phison Electronics Corp., a global leader in NAND flash controller and storage solutions, announced the launch of its X1 controller-based Solid State Drive (SSD) platform. The platform delivers the industry’s most advanced enterprise SSD solution and is Phison’s latest product offering. The X1 Solid State Drive (SSD) platform was designed in partnership with Seagate Technology Holdings plc, a world leader in mass-data storage infrastructure solutions, and was engineered with Phison’s technology to meet the evolving demands of faster and smarter global data-center infrastructures.

The X1 SSD configurable platform provides increased computational power with minimal overall power requirements. The X1 uses a cost-effective solution that removes bottlenecks and enhances service quality to deliver more than a 30 percent improvement in data readings over existing market rivals while consuming the same amount of energy.

The full suite of corporate applications for HPC, AI, and hyper-scale supported by the X1 SSD includes:

  • High-performance computing (HPC): X1 SSD enables outstanding computing with reduced energy usage and a much more cost-effective platform that removes bottlenecks.
  • Disruptive artificial intelligence (AI): X1 SSD has enabled a new generation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to deliver insights and provide data that can be used to explore adaptive models in various crucial areas, including healthcare, education, and science, and more.
  • Hyperscale performance for data centers: X1 SSD is designed to take on enterprise workloads and is equipped with excellent endurance to transport enterprise data over the long term.

Experts’ Take

Sai Varanasi, senior vice president of product and business marketing at Seagate Technology, said, “We combined Seagate’s proprietary data management and custom integration capabilities with Phison’s cutting-edge technology to create highly customized SSDs that meet the ever-evolving needs of the enterprise storage market. Seagate is excited to partner with Phison on developing advanced SSD technology to provide the industry with increased density, higher performance, and power efficiency for all mass capacity storage providers.”

Sebastien Jean, Chief Technology Officer of Phison, said, “Current industry solutions miss the mark, and the X1 reinforces Phison’s commitment to elevating the bar in enterprise storage by delivering the world’s best-in-class enterprise SSD.
