The RADX Trifecta-SSD Family Sets New Standards for Performance, Capacity and Value for Single-Slot, PXIe (and CPCIe) NVMe SSD RAID Modules with up to 31 Terabytes per Slot, Sequential Write/Read Performance > 6 GB/Sec and Pricing that Delivers Unprecedented Value

RADX Trifecta-SSD COTS, Single-Slot 8TB, 16TB, and 31TB PXIe SSD RAID Modules Deliver Industry Leading Capacity, Performance and Value

With the combination of industry leading sequential read/write performance, 8TB, 16TB or 31TB capacity in a single slot, and price per terabyte that's 1/2 to 1/3 that of the competition, Trifecta-SSD delivers on the elusive notion of Fast, Good AND Cheap.

RADX Technologies® (RADX), today at National Instruments™ NI Week 2019, announced Trifecta-SSD™, a new family of COTS, PXIe (and CPCIe), single-slot, NVMe SSD RAID modules. Optimized for wideband, high-speed, data recording, playback, and storage applications, Trifecta-SSD Modules provide the highest performance, capacity, and best value (price-per-terabyte) available in the Test and Measurement (T&M) market today.

“At 1 GHz RF bandwidth per channel, LibertyGT® RF/IF Record and Playback systems write 5 GB/Sec per channel to SSD RAID, and with a 4 TB Module, we can only store 13 minutes of data,” said Ross Q. Smith, RADX Co-Founder and CEO. “Our customers are asking for multiple missions and hours of record time, which would require five PXIe slots per channel. In response, we developed Trifecta-SSDs to address long duration, multi-mission, wideband record and playback requirements in a single PXIe slot. Then we priced Trifecta-SSD Modules to be affordable so that LibertyGT and non-LibertyGT customers alike won’t have to compromise their recording duration specs or their budgets.”

Trifecta-SSD’s PCIe Gen 3 x8 architecture combines four or eight M.2 NVMe SSDs in a single-slot PXIe/CPCIe module that supports 8, 16, or 31TB, which is 2-to-8 times greater than other single-slot SSD RAID modules. Optimized for wideband RF/IF applications, Trifecta-SSD Modules can sustain 6.9 GB/Sec sequential write performance and > 7 GB/Sec sequential read performance (depending on configuration and application). Trifecta-SSD Modules are designed to comply with key standards including RoHS, FCC Part 15 Subpart B, Class A, CE and MIL-PRF-28800F. Trifecta-SSD Modules support 64-bit Windows operating systems and select Linux distributions upon request. Trifecta-SSDs are priced at $6,999 (8TB), $13,999 (16TB) and $19,999 (31TB), which is about 1/2 to 1/3 the price-per-terabyte of competitive products. Delivery is 30 days ARO or less, beginning in Q319. For details, please visit http://www.trifecta-ssd.com.

“We initially contemplated these SSD Modules solely for our own LibertyGT Systems,” said Wade Lowdermilk, RADX Co-Founder and CTO. “But given the industry need for affordable wideband storage, we thought there could be wide demand for a value-oriented, high-performance, high-capacity product. We then needed a marketing name, and because these modules are fast, good AND cheap, ‘Trifecta’ was the obvious choice.”

Trifecta-SSDs will be distributed exclusively in North America by TEVET, LLC (TEVET), a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned and HUBZone Small Business and leading supplier of T&M products, including RADX LibertyGT Systems, to prime contractors, U.S. and Allied government organizations including the DoD and DoE.
