IRVINE, CA: Toshiba America Electronic Components, a provider of Electrical/Electronic manufacturing solutions, announces its HK4 series of enterprise 6Gbit/s SATA solid state drive (SSD) series, designed to address read-intensive and value-endurance workloads.

The HK4 Series of enterprise SSDs is Toshiba’s first enterprise SSD to embed 15nm MLC NAND flash memory for enterprise and data center applications, including low latency tuned for high quality of service (QoS). There are two types of series of SSDs: The read-intensive HK4R series of SSDs and the HK4E value-endurance series of SSDs.

The read-intensive HK4R series of SSDs is available in capacities up to 1.92TB with low operating power consumption and is suitable for enterprise applications such as web servers, files servers, media streaming, video-on-demand, search engines and warm data storage.

The HK4E value-endurance series of drives offers an endurance level of three DWPD and a capacity up to 1.6TB, making It well suited for data centers and mixed workload applications.

The HK4 Series is also Toshiba’s first SATA SSD with optional Trusted Computing Group (TCG) enterprise encryption support and is also equipped with Toshiba’s QSBC (Quadruple Swing-By Code) error technology. Toshiba’s proprietary QSBC error-correction technology is a highly efficient error correction code (ECC) which helps protect customer data from corruption caused by NAND flash memory media wear, thus improving reliability and extending the life of Toshiba SSDs.

“The HK4 Series joins our family of SATA SSDs and is designed to meet the needs of our customers who are looking for a SATA SSD with low operating power, excellent quality of service, high capacity and with encryption,” says Jeremy Werner, vice president of SSD and storage solutions marketing at Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. “Knowing that security and encryption is a priority for our customers, we are thrilled to release a SATA SSD that meets those needs.”
