SMART Modular announces rugged S5E SLC NAND-based solid state drive

SMART Modular Technologies has announced a new addition to its SMART RUGGED product offering, the S5E 2.5" SATA SSD.

The S5E SSD provides comprehensive encryption and security features such as quick erase, SMART’s Security Data Elimination Technology (SDET) which meets current declassification standards, and erase triggers, making it suitable for data recording and as a storage tool for surveillance, defense and telemetry applications where data must remain secure or erased in mission-critical scenarios.

With two external triggers, the S5E is equipped with AES-XTS-256-bit encryption, which automatically protects all data written to the drive. Additional data elimination features built into the S5E are designed to meet or exceed all regulations for current military data erasure standards.

In addition to its encryption and erase features, the S5E offers up to 480GB of storage using single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash. The S5E SLC SSD is designed for both endurance (capable of capturing up to 40,000 total drive writes) and environmental stress protection (temperature and humidity, altitude performance, and shock and vibration protection), offering users a level of protection custom suited for integration into high stress or rugged-use applications.
