Foremay Releases World’s Fastest & Largest Rugged SSD Drives

The 3U VPX rugged SSDs deploy NVMe / PCIe Gen 3 interfaces with speeds exceeding 6.0 GB/s and capacities of 16 TB and are designed to work in extreme environmental conditions such as military, defense, and aerospace applications By DA Reporter / 01 Jul 2021

Foremay, Inc. has released the EC188 series rugged VPX SSD drives, military and aerospace grade VPX SSDs that offer the world’s largest capacity with each single card up to 16 TB. 

These rugged drives bring unprecedented performance with read/write speeds up to 6.5/6.2 GB/s, and random read/write IOPS at 4KB up to 550K/600K. These cutting-edge features help defense and aerospace system builders design their next generation systems for air, space, ground (including sand, mud & wetland), and underwater applications.

“The COVID-19 pandemic did not stop our sustained pace in seeking continuing excellence in technology innovation in rugged solid state drives,” said Dr. Jack Winters, Foremay’s CTO and co-founder. 

“Our rugged VPX SSDs were created during a harsh economic environment, and they will serve well in harsh deployment environments.”

Foremay’s rugged VPX military-grade SSD is further enhanced with special features including military secure erase, encryption, write protection, radiation hardening, and self-destruction under emergency situations. 

They can tolerate extreme vibration and shock conditions that meet or exceed MIL-STD-810G standards, and can operate in extreme temperatures ranging from -50ºC to 90ºC, or wider under special orders. Taking advantage of advanced thermal throttle technologies, the read/write speed is intelligently adapted when operating in extremely high-temperature environments.

EC188 series rugged VPX NVMe / PCIe Gen 3 SSD drives are in production now with capacity up to 16 TB for 3U and 32 TB for 6U. In addition, Foremay also offers SATA interface based rugged VPX SSD drives.
