SMART Storage Systems Wins Product of the Year at SVC Awards 2012

Leading European Industry Awards Program Recognizes CloudSpeed 500 for MLC Flash Endurance Enhancement Technology and Enterprise Feature Set

NEWARK, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/27/12 -- SMART Storage Systems, an innovative enterprise SSD technology provider, today announced that the CloudSpeed 500 solid state drive (SSD) was named as the Solid State Storage Product of the Year at the Achievements in Storage, Virtualization and Cloud Computing (SVC) Awards 2012. Recognized by the SVC Awards judges for its inclusion of SMART Storage Systems' Guardian Technology Platform, which enables up to 5x the endurance of competing multi-level cell (MLC)-based Flash SSDs, the CloudSpeed 500 significantly reduces the total cost of ownership (TCO) of storage in server and cloud computing applications.

"Until now, IT managers had to choose between either very high-endurance, high-cost SSDs or lower-cost, 'read mostly' client SSDs which quickly burn out, skyrocketing the TCO of storage," said John Scaramuzzo, president of SMART Storage Systems. "The CloudSpeed 500 solves this problem by extending the endurance of lower-cost MLC Flash far beyond its native capabilities. Being recognized by SVC as the product of the year is not only a great honor, but validates our CloudSpeed 500 as an industry-leading solution that meets the performance, endurance and TCO requirements of enterprise organizations worldwide."

Focused on storage, virtualization and cloud computing technologies, the annual SVC Awards highlight leading companies and solutions in 15 categories. Nominated products are first selected as finalists by a panel of European IT publication editors and analysts, which are then submitted to an open vote of IT end users. Full award results can be viewed on the SVC Awards website.

Available in capacities of 120, 240, 480GB, the CloudSpeed 500 features a 6Gb/s SATA interface and provides 500MB/s sequential read/write and 60K/20K IOPS random read/write performance. Satisfying the requirements of enterprise server environments and backed up by a five year warranty, the CloudSpeed 500 offers a full line of enterprise features. Leveraging SMART Storage Systems' proprietary Guardian Technology Platform, tier-one OEM-enterprise firmware, proven power fail technology and the latest generation of consumer MLC NAND flash, the CloudSpeed 500 offers all the features expected from an enterprise-class drive at the right value.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
