The Storage Products Business Unit of Toshiba is pleased to announce that its solid state hybrid drive (SSHD) series has been honored with a Best of Show Award at this year’s Flash Memory Summit. The award, which recognizes excellence in innovation and flash memory consumer applications, was presented at the 8th Annual Flash Memory Summit at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
Toshiba’s MQ01ABFH and MQ01ABDH SSHD series is equipped with Toshiba’s NAND flash and available in capacities ranging from 320GB to 1TB and in 7mm and 9.5mm form factors. The series continues Toshiba’s legacy of providing world-class storage products, and offers customers a complete lineup of 2.5-inch solid state hybrid drives for ultrathin, thin and light notebook PCs, multimedia and gaming applications, and traditional laptop PCs.
“Flash memory is being used today in ways that raise the bar of innovation when coupled with hard drive technology to create hybrid storage solutions addressing applications which require accelerated performance and high capacity,” said Jay Kramer, Chairman of the Awards Program and President of Network Storage Advisors Inc. “We are proud to select Toshiba Solid State Hybrid Drive for the Best of Show Award based on bringing to market the innovation of ‘self-learning’ caching algorithms that learn the system user’s data access patterns to optimize performance and manage how user data is stored to the NAND Flash for quick response and integrated to the high capacity hard drive storage for the best of both worlds.”
“Toshiba’s SSHD series reflects our continued devotion to create innovative storage technology,” said Don Jeanette, director of product marketing at Toshiba Storage Products Business Unit. “Flash Memory Summit is one of the leading events in the storage industry, and Toshiba is honored to receive such recognition.”
