Austin, Texas (PRWEB) February 22, 2013
Avant Technology has shipped the first of its 2 Terabyte (2TB) Enterprise Class Solid State Drives. Effectively doubling the capacity of the largest SSD available up to this point, Avant has released the world’s first 2TB Enterprise Class Drive and set the bar for Enterprise class SSD’s. Avant designs and manufactures SSD’s and Memory modules in its 52,000 sq ft. facility just north of Austin, Texas.
The 2TB SSD merges the capacity of an HDD with the performance of an SSD to create the ultimate 2.5” drive. Ideal for cloud applications, the 2TB drive is also an asset to major data centers. The massive capacity of the 2TB drive allows data centers to deploy fewer servers resulting in decreased cooling requirements, lower power consumption and ultimately a reduction of operating costs and environmental impact. In addition, the 2TB drive offers excellent uncompressible data write performance – perfect for low entropy data storage.
“The Avant team has created an SSD that doubles the capacity of any other comparable drive on the market. This accomplishment will set the stage for continued advancements in data storage and Avant will be at the leading edge” – Paul Goodwin, Avant Technology Chief Technology Officer.
“I am proud that as an American company, Avant is leading the way in both the design and manufacture of flash based data storage. With these drives coming off of our lines in Austin Texas, it marks the beginning of the American manufacturing renaissance. ” – Ray Agrella, Avant Technology Vice President of Sales & Marketing.
