Enhanced Data Security Technology at COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2015
Apacer (TWSE: 8271), the world-leading memory brand, has ranked the top in revenue market share of industrial SSD for 3 consecutive years, reflecting global market’s recognition of Apacer’s innovative spirit. Apacer will present brand new, upgraded industrial SSD solutions at COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2015. Data security is enhanced through protection mechanism triggered by NFC; SSD CoreAnalyzer is an innovative analysis technology to comprehensively record and analyze actual usage scenarios of SSD operation, fully exploring behavior of applications, designing the most reliable systems and providing the top services; Apacer provides high-speed, high-capacity PCIe and the SATA 3 SSD series for responding to demands of cloud computing. Welcome to visit Apacer at booth No. J0618, TWTC Nangang Exhibition Hall to unveil brand new products and experience in person.
With rapid development of IoT and cloud computing, data security has become a key focus for the technology industry, as all devices will be connected in the future. According to Gartner’s latest “Market Share Analysis: 2014 Global SSD and Solid-State Arrays” report, Apacer is the top SSD supplier world-wide, reaching the position for third consecutive year. Apacer strives to enhance data security and protection from utilized software and hardware, for example, UrKey, a USB-based 2 way dongle that triggered, enabled, and removed the three major security instructions of CoreSecurity last year. This year, Apacer evolves and launches Apacer NFC SSD, as NFC (Near Field Communication) technology is safe, convenient and low power consumption. As the first line of defense, users can use smartphones with NFC function to access the Self Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T) of SSD, and can also trigger the embedded three major instructions of CoreSecurity—CoreEraser, CoreDestroyer, and CoreProtector—through NFC.
Apacer not only provides enhanced data protection mechanism, but has also developed the exclusive CoreAnalyzer technology, which records actual scenarios of SSD operation, including sequential/random writes and reads and analyses of user behavior, workload, and data structure, allowing industrial clients to learn the actual usage scenarios of their systems, and adopting highly reliable and stable solution.
In addition to the aforementioned new leading technologies, Apacer will also showcase a selection of high-speed, high-capacity PCIe SSD and SATA 3 SSD, including M.2 2280, 22110, and 2.5” PCIe SSD (SFF-8639 connector) , as well as the SATA 3 series that offers maximum capacity at 2TB in response to the market’s diverse and challenging demands for memory devices.
“From Apacer’s well-experiences in industrial field for years and pierce industrial trends and customers’ needs. At this year’s COMPUTEX TAIPEI, Apacer will release all-new data security technology and value-added services, such as Apacer NFC SSD safety mechanism and the exclusive CoreAnalyzer technology, which assist for improving overall protection of data, and enhance user experience. Rapid-access, high-capacity PCIe SSD and SATA 3 SSD, will satisfy the needs of applications inenterprise fields .” Said Jeff Lin, the Embedded Application Business Unit Director of Apacer.
Highlights of Apacer’s Industrial SSD at Computex Taipei 2015
1) NFC SSD Protection Technology
Apacer continues to perfect SSD CoreSecurity technology. This year, Apacer launches NFC SSD to realize convenient data protection demand, which by simply turning on NFC SSDWidget via NFC-enabled smartphones to trigger controlling security functions such as Boot Protect and Write Protect. NFC SSD utilizes Near Field Communication standards and connects with smartphone through encoded interactive technology to prevent important data from being intercepted during communication, in order to enhance data security.
2) SSD CoreAnalyzer
To assist clients study user behavior of systems and to adopt most optimal SSD, Apacer has developed the exclusive SSD CoreAnalyzer technology. CoreAnalyzer firmware embedded in Apacer SSD records all the reading and writing actions at the host end, analyzes the data and stores it in SSD; CoreAnalyzer further presents user behavior of SSD, including read/write ratio, workload, ratio of sequential write, and random access ratio. In addition to allowing clients to fully understand the user behavior of SSD, CoreAnalyzer can also provide references for clients in choosing the most optimal SSD.
3) High-Speed PCIe and STAT 3 SSD
Apacer’s industrial memory product line provides new memory solutions and presents the new PCIe SSD and SATA 3 SSD. Through high-speed interface, data processing capacity is greatly enhanced. All new PCIe SSD uses the new PCIe Gen 3×4, achieving a maximum speed of 2800MB/sec; the product line features M.2 2280, 22110, and 2.5” SSD. The 2.5” SATA 3 SSD has a maximum capacity of 2TB, and IOPS can be reached at 100k, satisfying the demand for real time data access.
