pureSilicon Unveils Secure, Ruggedized, High-Capacity SSDs -- 128 GB, PATA and SATA II
First Solid-State Drive With FIPS-Approved Encryption Technology That Meets MIL-STD-810F Standards
CLIFTON, NJ--(Marketwire - October 28, 2008) - pureSilicon Inc. unveiled the Renegade Series
Solid-State Drives (SSD), the first SSDs to integrate hardware-based
encryption approved by the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS).
The Renegade SSD is also compliant with MIL-STD-810F, a military standard
that requires the SSD to sustain reliable operation during a series of
rigorous tests that validate its ability to endure the extreme environments
typically seen in industrial and military applications.
The pureSilicon Renegade SSD addresses the demands of the most challenging
environments where heat, vibration, and humidity preclude the use of
traditional hard disk drives or regular, 'consumer-grade' SSDs. A dedicated
on-board cryptographic processor provides hardware-driven 256-bit AES
encryption that delivers instantaneous encryption and decryption of data
without degrading performance.
pureSilicon Renegade SSDs are rugged and reliable
To protect the SSD from harsh physical environments, the Renegade features
a hard-anodized unibody enclosure, carved from a single piece of aluminum.
Other features include high capacity (densities up to 128 GB), extreme
temperature range components, high shock and vibration tolerances, ability
to add conformal coating protection, and enhanced security features.
Energy-efficient and planet-friendly
pureSilicon is committed to energy efficiency and develops storage products
that yield high performance per watt. Whether the goal is to increase
productivity in a mobile environment or reduce energy costs in a
datacenter, deploying pureSilicon SSDs will help achieve successful
results. Legacy storage products such as hard disk drives are becoming less
energy-efficient as manufacturers strive for higher performance; SSDs offer
superior performance scalability while achieving significantly lower energy
Available in early 2009
pureSilicon has begun sampling the units on a limited basis to select
customers, with shipments expected to commence in the first quarter of
2009. For more information about the pureSilicon Renegade Series SSD or to
