The 10 Coolest SSD And Flash Storage Products Of 2021

Joseph F. Kovar

Flash storage continues to mature as vendors including DDN, Infinidat, Pure Storage, and ScaleFlux adopt the latest technologies such as NVMe aimed at either fostering increased performance or increased security.

ScaleFlux Computational Storage Drive (CSD) 2000 Data Scale Edition

ScaleFlux in May expanded its Computational Storage Drive (CSD) portfolio to include quad-level cell (QLC) NAND flash storage from Micron Technology. The new QLC drives, featuring integrated and transparent compression, can reduce the cost of flash storage to under $0.01 per gigabyte per year, the company said.

By adding Micron QLC to the Data Scale Edition of ScaleFlux’s CSD product line, ScaleFlux reduces performance and endurance tradeoffs, with performance on par with more expensive TLC drives, up to 6x faster than NVMe QLC SSDs. Endurance is on par with TLC drives, up to 4x greater than that of other QLC SSDs.
