By CBR Staff Writer

SanDisk has introduced the SanDisk Z400s solid-state drive (SSD), which is designed to outperform standard hard-disk drives (HDDs) and provide great user experience at a low cost.

The new storage solution can replace standard HDD use in computing platforms and embedded applications, as Z400s is capable of providing five times more reliability compared to an average HDD, while consuming 20% less power.

According to SanDisk, PC makers will be able to use the SanDisk Z400s in next generation laptop designs that are sleeker and mobile in nature.

SSDs are also less prone to damage and failure as they have no moving parts and reportedly faster than traditional hard drives.

SanDisk highlighted that the Z400s is capable of withstand up to 1.7 million hours of continual usage with minimal downtime, and is capable of remaining stabile during peak activities making it ideal for embedded industrial systems.

The company said that the new Z400s storage solution can be used for digital signage as it provides the latest advances in flash storage technology.

SanDisk senior director of product marketing Rizwan Ahmed said: "The Z400s represents a feat of engineering that addresses the needs of two distinct markets — PC OEM manufacturers and embedded application designers.
