Solid State Disk supports up to 1 TB of storage.

Press Release Summary:

Available in conduction- or air-cooled models, 3U VPX XPort6172 provides up to ½ TB of storage; 1 TB of storage is achievable in single 3U VPX slot by mounting XPort6103 512 GB XMC SSD onto XMC site of XPort6172. Solid state disk features x4 PCI interface on VPX P1 backplane connector, XMC connector with x4 PCI interface, and 256-bit AES encryption. Operating from -40 to 85°C, XPort6172 supports 100,000 program/erase cycles and meets MIL-STD-810F and -461E requirements.

Original Press Release:

X-ES Packs 1 TB of Solid State Storage in Single 3U VPX Slot to Satisfy Military SSD Requirements

Middleton, WI - Extreme Engineering Solutions, Inc. (X-ES) is providing one terabyte of solid state storage in a single 3U VPX slot. The newly available conduction- or air-cooled 3U VPX XPort6172 Solid State Disk (SSD) provides up to 512 GB, or a half terabyte (½ TB), of solid state storage with data encryption. However, 1 TB in a single 3U VPX slot is achievable by mounting the XPort6103 512 GB XMC SSD onto the XMC site of the XPort6172. The XPort6172 and XPort6103, individually or combined, satisfy the rigors of MIL-STD-810F and -461E - they are ready for the harshest deployments.

The XPort6172 supports 256-bit AES encryption, utilizing the 123 NIST- and CSE-certified Enova Technology X-Wall MX-256C encryption chip. Additionally, the XPort6172 supports "zeroization" (i.e., enhanced erase) and satisfies DoD NISPOM 5220.22 and NSA/CSS 9-12 specifications.

The XPort6172 features include:

o x4 PCIe interface on the VPX P1 backplane connector

o XMC connector with a x4 PCIe interface (for XMC or XPort6103 use)

o Up to 512 GB capacity (appears as two 256 GB drives)

o 256-bit AES encryption (optional)

o Declassification via hardware or software control (optional)

o ATA Secure Erase support

o 100,000 program/erase cycles

o -40°C to 85°C operating temperature range

"Customers have approached X-ES with 1 TB to 4 TB system-level requirements which can be supported using the XPort6172 and XPort6103 in our XPand4200 or XPand5200 ½ ATR chassis solutions," states Bret Farnum, VP Sales."In our XPand4200 populated with an SBC and a power supply we can provide a total of 4 TB of solid state storage in the other four slots."

The XPort6172 provides best-in-class performance, with up to 200 MB/s sustained sequential read performance and 120 MB/s sustained sequential write performance.
