Featured Storage Technologies


Withstanding Humidity, Shock and Vibration

Built to the highest standards, our products boast MIL-STD-810 compliance, conformal coating, and underfill technologies, providing unparalleled protection against humidity, shock, vibration, and environmental factors.


Wide Temperature

Exascend’s wide temperature technology leverages a unique combination of high-quality components, purpose-designed hardware and highly-optimized firmware to deliver unmatched wide temperature performance and stability.


Optimized Thermal and Write Performance

Our Adaptive Thermal Control™ technology enhances system thermals, airflow, and acoustics, reducing BOM costs. The SuperCruise™ algorithm optimizes write performance, boosting long-term stability and overall reliability.


Data Security and Encryption

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


Uncompromised Data Integrity

Leveraging RAID5 at a flash memory block level, our unique RAID ECC recovers severely corrupted data. In sudden power loss, our hardware and firmware power loss protection (PLP) ensures data integrity.


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.
