Plextor M7V Series Leads the TLC SSD Market

Plextor announced the longest lifetime M7V series solid-state drive. The M7V series is Plextor's first TLC SSD product, combining top-class components and exclusive firmware, allowing the M7V to surpass the current TLC SSD's key technical limits, reaching a P/E cycle of up to 2,000 times. The best P/E lifetime, speed, capacity and stability will stand to satisfy the consumer's demands for the best cost performance, providing users with a new generation TLC SSD product to choose from.
Plextor M7V Series

The key to dramatically increasing Plextor M7V's lifetime as a TLC SDD is through coupling the highest grade components from the industry with advanced firmware. The M7V series applies the new generation Marvell control chip, designed exclusively for TLC products, along with Toshiba's latest 15 nm process TLC NAND flash memory. It also applies multiple technologies developed exclusively by Plextor, including the tailor-made write acceleration technology PlexNitro, the Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) troubleshooting technology with three times the average rate, and PlexTurbo, a software that applies system memory to decrease the amount of reading and writing.

The result brings about the astonishing 2,000 times P/E cycle lifetime of the M7V series, 2 to 4 times as durable as a normal TLC SSD, providing the largest TBW (Total Bytes Written) for its users. Using the 512GB capacity version as an example, it has a TBW of 320TB. The M7V has set up a new milestone for TLC SSD products, marking a new page with its outstanding lifetime, P/E durability and stability, bringing forth an unforeseen top notch quality application.

Plextor's superb firmware and software technology has always been the key to surpassing and receiving recognition above products of the same level. Looking at the firmware technology applied, the M7V series uses the exclusive PlexNitro technology that differs from other TLC SSD products, allowing the M7V to not require reserving hard drive space, increasing its writing capability while keeping the most complete SSD storage capacity for its users, giving the user's the best return for their choice. Using the lowest capacity products of 128GB for example, when other TLC brands can only provide a true 120GB of storage space, Plextor can support a complete 128GB TLC SSD capacity.

The widely recognized PlexTurbo software can apply the system's DRAM to accelerate the SSD's read and write efficiency, allowing the M7V that has a designed sequential read/write speed of 560/530 MB/s, random read/write speed of 98K/84K IOPS to increase its speed by 6 to 10 times. PlexTurbo can also reduce the frequency of data writing, greatly increasing the lifetime of the SSD, bringing advanced efficiency for the TLC SSD.

Apart from PlexTurbo, the M7V series can also use two other additional softwares, the PlexCompressor & PlexVault - PlexCompressor can compress files that have a low usage rate while not affecting the SSD's efficiency, providing more available space for its user; PlexVault can set up an exclusive space for sensitive information by tapping on a few hot keys, providing utmost privacy and security to the data conveniently.

Operation Director of Plextor, Eva Lee, expressed, "Facing the market trend of TLC SSDs with high cost performance ratios, consumers have higher expectations for the product's lifetime, efficiency and reliability. In response to this, Plextor has applied various advanced technologies and components, building the much more reliable M7V product series, providing the best data stability and security with various fast access-enhancing and troubleshooting technology while greatly increasing the SSD's lifetime, guaranteeing users the highest cost-effectiveness and protection for their SSD. As we deliver the M7V series, we will also make the PlexTurbo, PlexCompressor and PlexVault available to all M6 series users, and we promise to continue to provide premium services for the users of Plextor."

The Plextor M7V Series Solid-State Drives will be delivered in April of 2016, providing two different standard specs - the 2.5 inch (PX-M7VC) and the M.2 2280 (PX-M7VG), with 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities to choose from, satisfying SSD system requirements from desktop computers to ultra-slim notebooks.

Kingston Ships Management Ready, Hardware-Encrypted USB Flash Drives

The massive leak of confidential documents recently not only reveal the hidden wealth of politician and businessmen worldwide, but also reiterate the importance of information security. Governments, corporates, and even individuals like us can never be too careful when dealing with sensitive materials. Kingston, the independent world leader in memory products, today announced two new hardware encrypted USB Flash drives that can be managed with SafeConsole® by DataLocker®. DataTraveler® 4000G2 with Management (DT4000G2DM) and DataTraveler Vault Privacy 3.0 with Management (DTVP30DM) solve the needs of organizations required to meet Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) and protect data at the highest level across their mobile workforce. Both devices can be used as a managed solution via the SafeConsole Encryption Management Platform from DataLocker Inc., Kingston’s partner for encrypted USB drive management.

The new Kingston® USB drives are both 256-bit AES hardware encrypted and FIPS certified (DT4000G2DM is FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated; DTVP30DM is FIPS 197 certified) to ensure maximum corporate and personal data security. Additionally, SafeConsole is the only secure USB management platform for secure USB drives with true password management – both remote and local. The platform enables secure resetting of forgotten passwords, activation of full audit trails, geolocation and geofencing to ensure cross-border compliance, automatic inventory, and a “remote kill” feature in the event of device loss.

Organizations should develop best practices to safeguard data outside of a company’s firewalls as data leaks become more prevalent and certain regions adopt regulatory policies. The European Union (EU) will soon enact the General Data Protection Regulation, which mandates that businesses strengthen their digital infrastructure or face significant penalties. Part of an organizational policy should include device-level management that allows control over LAN and Internet connections. This enables better tracking and auditing of data moving in and out of a company.

“Human error, malicious attacks and technical failures can place employee and corporate data at risk. Companies, agencies and organizations need to implement a security policy well before anything goes wrong as it’s critical to prevent non-compliance, fines and even financial loss,” said Nathan Su, Flash Memory Sales Director, APAC Region, Kingston. “Our latest encrypted managed USB drives, the recent IronKey acquisition and growing DataLocker partnership all demonstrates Kingston’s commitment to providing the most secure and largest family of encrypted USB solutions on the market.”

Kingston’s DT4000G2DM and DTVP30DM are available in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities, and are backed by a five-year warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston reliability.
