Would Memory Failure Be Catastrophic to your business?
From visits to OEM companies using flash storage as a critical device in their systems over the last couple decades, the discussion often turns to what would happen to the company if the flash storage failed.
SLC, pSLC, MLC and TLC Differences - Does Your Flash Storage SSD Make the Grade?
Not all SSD are created equal. There are enormous differences in ability to work at temperature, in poor power environments, under high duty cycles. When talking enormous, an Industrial Grade SSD can have as much as 300 times (yes, 300 times, not 300%) more write endurance cycles per physical block of data.
Crypto SSD Encryption Key Exchange Methods
In order to perform encryption/decryption, an encryption key is required. In the following discussion, we will refer to this as the DEK (Device Encryption Key). There are various ways in which the DEK can be provided to the device, we will discuss a few of these methods below. Self Generated Permanent Key: In this method,...

Cactus 240SE Series AES256 Crypto SSD Products
SEDs (Self Encrypted Disk) are now widely available, most SSDs on the market today advertise as having hardware encryption built-in. However, not all SEDs are created the same. Data security is more than just having hardware encryption
Read Disturb Handling for Cactus Technologies' Flash Storage Devices
Mostly read embedded OEM applications should consider the read disturb issue in addition to the endurance of the NAND memory when making a decision on which grade of flash memory to use.
An Overview of Pseudo-SLC NAND
Pseudo-SLC NAND uses MLC NAND in a single bit per cell mode, thereby giving it >6 times the endurance of the same MLC NAND cell used in its traditional two bit per cell operation. Cactus OEM Grade uses this pSLC and is an upgrade from our Commercial Grade which uses MLC NAND.
