Flash Drives

solid state flash diskIt’s common knowledge that computers are no longer confined to the office space. Or, more accurately, perhaps, the office is no longer confined to the prototypical cubicle or workstation.

The industrial sectors have carved out their own specific niches in the world of electronics, ones that demand specific factors.

These needs range greatly, depending on the type of electronics the company utilizes and the tasks that it’s required to carry out. Large scale industrial machinery that is dependent on repetitive motions or monitoring relies on automation, which requires a computer on the premises. Certain electronic components simply can’t cut it in an industrial setting, especially in the case of hard drives.

What modern industrial computing demands is a hard drive standard that can withstand the rigors of the warehouse floor while continuing to give the best performance. Luckily, a solid state flash disk fills this niche perfectly, utilizing flash memory over traditional disk drives and Read the full article →

flash driveWhen it comes to hard drives, information is only as powerful as our ability to access it. In a sense, a stockpile of data has its uses, but it is the correlation and aggregation of statistics or files that create its true worth. Getting information quickly is only half the equation. The other side of the issue is storage space. Hard drive space is relatively economical, considering how much is being offered; a terabyte can cost a pittance when stacked against other components. Traditional SATA drives are spinning discs with mountains of information. It’s when we move into the territory of flash memory drives, however, that the discussion changes.

There are a couple of different standards for flash memory; the two discussed here are solid state drives (or SSD hard drives) and disc on module SATA drives. Both approach the issue of data storage from a similar standpoint; using flash memory to store data increases write and read speeds and provides other benefits over traditional HDDs. But there are also differences worth noting. Read on to learn more!

SSD Hard Drive and Disc On Module SATA Similarities

In the sense of pure data storage, the most defining feature of these two standards is the blistering speed at which they can read and Read the full article →

SLC or MLCFinding a good SSD flash drive memory is dependent on the particular use that you have in mind for the memory storage. These days there are two types of storage spaces: the SLC and the MLC.

For consumers who aren’t familiar with the technicalities of certain storage disks, cost is the most obvious and easiest way to compare the two types. But the differences between the two are critical and go beyond the price range. It’s wise to study the differences in order to maximize the potential of your storage.

Explaining Flash Drive Memory

Before considering the differences between the single level cell (SLC) and the multi-level cell (MLC), it’s important to understand the flash memory that is used in an SSD flash disk. In more recent years, the solid state flash disk, or SSD, commonly Read the full article →
