DIGISTOR’s New Commercial-Class PCIe Gen 4 NVMe Solid State Drives Deliver The Fastest Performance For Even The Most Demanding Applications

DIGISTOR’s new SSDs round out its complete line of Solid State Drives (SSDs) and reinforce its position as the single source of cost-effective storage for organizations that need to secure Data At Rest

VANCOUVER, Washington, November 16, 2021 – Following the successful launch of its Citadel and C Series SSDs, DIGISTOR®, a leading provider of secure Data At Rest (DAR) storage solutions, launched its commercial-class PCIe Gen 4 NVM Express (NVMe) SSDs. These new drives deliver the industry’s fastest SSD performance for demanding applications, including AI, video editing, visualization, and scientific and engineering modeling and analysis. 

“This next generation of SSDs marks a milestone in DIGISTOR’s commitment to delivering the industry’s best solutions for customers who demand reliable high-performance data storage in their computers, said Murray Ellis, Vice President of DIGISTOR Engineering. These products reinforce our technology leadership and ensure customers that we have diverse storage offerings, including solutions for encrypting or physically securing sensitive and classified DAR.” 

Available in the M.2 NVMe form factor and offering a capacity ranging from 500GB to 4TB, DIGISTOR’s SSDs are ideal for a range of devices, including laptops, desktops, workstations, and purpose-built systems. In addition, these SSDs use the latest in PCIe Gen 4 controller technology making them 2x faster than their PCIe Gen 3 equivalent drives. 

The new DIGISTOR PCIe Gen 4 SSDs set a new high-water mark for single-drive performance, more than doubling the throughput speed of DIGISTOR’s PCIe Gen 3 SSDs. The CrystalDiskMark results are as follows:

  • Read performance: up to 7200 MBps (2.1x faster than our Commercial PCIe Gen 3 SSDs).
  • Write performance: delivers up to 6850 MBps (2.3x faster than our Commercial PCIe Gen 3 SSDs)

DIGISTOR’S new commercial (non-encrypted) PCIe Gen 4 SSDs are available to order today. (Self-encrypting TCG Opal 2.0 versions of the PCIe Gen 4 SSDs will be available in Q1 2022.)
