With the excitement of releasing our new CloudSpeed 500 SSD on April 24, you may have missed the recent assessments of two more SMART Storage Systems SSDs from The SSD Review. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work with this leading industry review site on an evaluation of both the XceedIOPS 2 200GB eMLC 6Gbps Enterprise SSD and the XceedStor 500S 240GB MLC Enterprise SSD. It’s safe to say they ”xceed”ed expectations, as Paul Alcorn, The SSD Review Analyst, raved about both SSDs! We wanted to highlight a few key comments from the reviews:
- Alcorn provided great insight on the XceedStor 500s with comments, such as “Many users are now substituting client SSDs for more price-conscious approaches to boosting read-centric environment performance which can expose users to data integrity and security concerns, making the XceedStor 500S a much needed entrant to this space.” He ended the article with a view that we both share on the XceedStor 500s drive – “Bringing enterprise class reliability, performance and features to the price conscious server market is a win-win for all. SMART has placed themselves in a very good position, straddling the line between server pricing and ultra reliability that can compete with the less-desirable consumer class SSDs.”
- Alcorn’s review of XceedIOPS 2 starts off declaring the XceedIOPS 2 to be the latest and greatest. Alcorn deems the new SMART Storage Systems SSD to be “a great alternative for SLC SSDs for users who need the ultimate in reliability.”
These two reviews further showcase the promising products we offer and the direction we are heading. If you would like to learn more about either product, please visit us here.
