SAN DIEGO, 15 Feb. 2009. Phoenix International Systems in Orange, Calif., released its VS1-250-SSD serial attached SCSI (SAS)/serial ATA (SATA)-based solid-state disk VME military data storage plug-in blade at AFCEA West 2009.

The VS1-250-SSD military VME system delivers high capacity, high performance data storage for military, aerospace, and industrial applications requiring rugged, secure, and durable military hard drive mass data storage.

The 6U, single-slot military VME bus module houses one or two each 2.5 inch SAS or SATA SSDs with as much as 256 gigabytes per device and can be interfaced through its front panel connector or its P2 connector.

The high-speed module will sustain read/write data rates of 120 megabits per second with an access time of .5 milliseconds. The VS1-250SSD has an operating temperature range from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius and functions at an altitude greater than 80,000 feet. The VS1-250-SSD also compiles with current Defense Department security standards providing multiple levels of secure erase techniques.

As a drop-in replacement for a traditional hard disk drive, the Phoenix device offers lower power consumption and eliminates seek time, latency, and other electro-mechanical delays commonly associated with conventional rotating media.
