G-Technology launches new family of external solid state drives

G-Technology, a manufacturer of premium storage services, has launched a new family of external drives based on 2.5 inches solid state drive technology, the G-Drive mini SSD and the RAID 0/1 G-Raid mini SSD.

By CBR Staff Writer

Because the drives have no moving parts, each drive is expected to withstand shock up to 1500Gs and can endure higher altitudes, vibration and temperatures when compared to traditional hard drive-based services. The new G-Drive mini SSD and G-Raid mini SSD are also expected to provide higher data transfer rates, lower seek times and use less power, said G-Technology, said G-Technology.

According to G-Technology, the new G-Drive mini SSD comes in 120Gb and 250Gb capacities, and features a triple interface to provide fast access to HD video, audio, and other dense multimedia files.

Featuring a quad eSATA, FireWire 800, FireWire 400 and USB 2.0 interface, the G-Raid mini SSD is claimed to provide RAID 0 performance delivering up to 195Mb/sec data transfer rates.

Roger Mabon, vice president of G-Technology product group at Fabrik, said: These are not your daddy’s drives – unless he requires the most durable, bleeding-edge storage technology on the market. These products target a very niche market segment that understands the cost benefits of using a superior quality, yet simple, SSD-based external storage solution. Nothing comes close to their quality, performance and reliability.
