Drive Endurance and Data Integrity

In addition to fast data storage and access, Pulsar.2 solid state drives deliver the data integrity and drive endurance needed in demanding enterprise environments.

The Pulsar.2 SSD can routinely complete more than ten full drive writes per day (or 15 petabytes over the life of the device). Moreover, these drives detect and correct automatically a multitude of data errors that can occur during normal drive operation.

Pulsar Overview 2

Easy integration and scalability

Data centre managers must provide faster data storage and access, all while managing complex system environments and juggling tight IT budgets.

Pulsar.2 solid state drives deliver a simple cost-saving solution. These drives provide OEMs, system builders and data centre managers with easy integration and interface scalability while minimising downtime.

Pulsar Overview 3
