Featured Storage Technologies


Withstanding Humidity, Shock and Vibration

Designed to demanding military standards, our products feature MIL-STD-810 compliance along with protective conformal coating, and underfill technologies. This unmatched ruggedization enables resilience against shock, vibration, humidity and harsh environments.


Uncompromised data integrity

Our exclusive Neutron Shield™ technology provides unmatched protection against radiation-induced data integrity issues. Additionally, Exascend storage leverages RAID ECC, LDPC ECC and Data Path Protection firmware minimizing transmission errors. Dual power loss protection (PLP) technology also ensures data integrity during power failures.


Optimized Consistent Performance under Thermal Stress

Our Adaptive Thermal Control™ actively manages thermals, airflow and acoustics to maintain system performance and reduce heat dissipation costs. The SuperCruise™ algorithm further refines write performance for stability and reliability over the long-term.


Wide temperature

Exascend products are designed to operate in extreme temperatures ranging from -40°C to 85°C. Our technology leverages a unique combination of high-quality components, purpose-designed hardware and highly-optimized firmware to deliver unmatched wide temperature performance and stability.


Secure Data Protection

Our self-encrypting drives (SEDs) support TCG Opal 2.0 with AES-256 encryption, BitLocker, and IEEE 1667. Customize by adding pre-boot authentication (PBA), data sanitization, and Tamper-Proof Firmware for stringent security requirements.


Enhanced Power Efficiency

Our control in hardware, firmware and manufacturing allows unmatched power tuning services. Tailoring product performance for your applications achieves optimal performance-to-thermal and performance-to-power ratios.

Why We Are Different

Customization through Our Own Hardware and Firmware Design

Our complete control over our hardware and firmware solutions, combined with our commitment to customization, allows us to address customer pain points and solve unique challenges.
