Innodisk, the worldwide service provider for flash and DRAM product, unveiled its Next Generation innovation in flash storage design technology last week during its VIP product launch at the Hyatt Hotel in Santa Clara, CA. The M2DOM storage product made its U.S. debut in front of technology leaders and the press showing that it was designed with space in mind. Speaking at the event was Randy Chien, Innodisk’s Chairman & CEO along with the U.S. Branch’s President, Victor Le and C.C. Wu, EVP. Also taking the stage was David Chen, VP SSD BU for Marvell Semiconductor, Inc. to discuss its involvement in the product’s development.
“We have a long history with Marvell and are so pleased that Innodisk could collaborate on a product that successfully demonstrates both company’s innovativeness,” said Randy Chien, Innodisk Chairman & CEO.
“Marvell is very pleased to support Innodisk in bringing to market the new M2DOM products,” said Dr. David Chen, Vice President of SSD Business at Marvell Semiconductor, Inc. “With 20 years of market leadership in storage, Marvell is committed to working with ecosystem leaders like Innodisk to deliver ground-breaking innovations that drive the industry forward.”
The Next Generation is All About Space
Innodisk’s vertical SSD, the M2DOM product, saves up to 90 percent more space as compared to a standard M.2 product having a horizontal design. This tiny form factor has high performance and comes in capacities up to 256GB. By adding a housing and board connection of this device, the designer has ample space to lay out the motherboard. Fulfilling various needs of embedded systems, Innodisk’s M2DOM product is compatible with multiple interfaces such as SATA, PCIe and USB.
During the Flash Memory Summit at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Innodisk will debut another flash storage product powered by the Marvell controller. The 3ME series supports the PCIe 3.0 x1 interface providing high performance in this small form factor.
