Optimized solid state drives for military mission-critical applications

VITA Technologies (VME and Critical Systems) — April 13, 2005

Feature / Discussion: April 2005Military requirements for drive technology are among the most demanding, as they require sustained operation in an extreme environment.

Traditional hard drive solutions frequently fail to pass such requirements. Their performance is adversely affected by extreme environmental conditions, and they only offer sustained operation within a narrow band of ideal environmental conditions.

In this article, Vikram describes Solid State Drive (SSD) technology, and its use in military mission-critical applications.
