Toshiba’s Read-intensive 2TB and 4TB PX04SL SSDs Now Shipping

Enterprises need a whole different set of hardware than we consumers do and Toshiba has a lot to offer in this area and among the available enterprise products is a whole list of solid state drives optimized for different kind of workloads. The newest in this category is the very read-intensive enterprise SAS SSD called the PX04SL that just began shipping as samples today. The Toshiba PX04SL series is optimized for read-intensive application workloads such as data warehousing, web servers, media streaming, and video on demand (VOD) services.

There are two main factors for enterprises when they pick the hardware to use. It has to work as good as possible in the intended usage scenario and it has to have a total cost of ownership that is as low as possible without compromising the needed performance. Toshiba’s PX04SL generation SAS SSDs offer both and come in both 2TB and 4TB capacity versions.

Thanks to the 12Gbps dual-port SAS interface and the used components, these PX04SL drives are able to deliver a sustained 4K random read performance of 270,000 IOPS and a sustained 64K sequential read performance up to 1900MB/s. This helps read-intensive application workloads achieve superior results and should prevent bottlenecks.

The Toshiba PX04SL is a 2.5-inch form factor drive, but it is 15mm high to make room for all the hardware inside. It is rated for up to 25 complete disk writes per day for a period of 5 years with 100% random workload, therefore be reliable for a long time. The series features a full power-loss-protection and end-to-end data protection that both help to keep every bit of your data correct, even in the case of power failures and other unforeseen circumstances.

The PX04SL SSDs also allow for customer-tunable power and performance optimization as well as self-encrypting and FIPS options. Everything an enterprise with respect for itself will want.
