SATADIMM™ Solid State Drive

SATADIMM™ is the first and only enterprise class SSD to be designed in a DIMM form factor making it possible to deploy SSDs in unused DRAM sockets.

Best Fit Applications

SATADIMM is the ideal boot drive for high-performance servers and storage appliances delivering just the right capacity without sacrificing drive bays that are better suited for mass storage. SATADIMM’s optimized performance and endurance makes it perfect as a cache solution to accelerate applications, especially VMware. In a storage array appliance, SATADIMM provides a 5x advantage in performance and capacity over using 2.5-inch SSDs.

Mitigate Human Error

Booting and caching are just two applications where the removability of a hard drive form factor can be problematical. Imagine the ramifications of a degraded or downed system resulting from an operator removing the boot or cache drive by mistake. The ultra-reliable SATADIMM is safely stored away inside the server ensuring this sort of catastrophe is easily avoidable.

Unsurpassed Server Capacity & Performance

Form is Function: this high-performance and high-availability SSD offers significant increases to typical server capacity and performance at a fraction of the volumetric density of a 2.5-inch SSD. It’s a simple advantage: a server with SATADIMM will have greater capacity and performance than a server with storage only in drive bays.
