Facing stiff competition from industrial storage industry peers such as Apacer, Innodisk and Swissbit, the jury from Embedded Computing Design gave Exascend’s PI4 series E1.S SSD the highest score across a 15-point rubric made up of Design Excellence (5 points), Relative Performance (5 points), and Market Impact/Disruption (5 points).

Enterprise performance everywhere with E1.S
