The World’s First 2TB SATA-III 2.5″ SSD Sees The Light

Almost two years after the launch of its 1TB 2.5-inch SSD, Foremay has announced the launch of its 2TB capacity model. The 2.5-inch SATA drive is just 9.5mm thick and is available under the company’s consumer brand as well as its industrial line of drives.

Founded in the Silicon Valley in 2002, Foremay, Inc., is a leading organization dedicated to technological innovation in Solid State Drives ( SSDs ) for highly reliable, mission-critical computing, industrial computing, and enterprise computing.

“By leveraging Foremay’s patent pending technologies, we are proud to deliver the world’s first 2TB SSD in standard 2.5″ SATA form factor,” said Jack Winters , Foremay’s CTO and co-founder. “We hope our high reliability 2 TB SSD drives can help create more design freedom and storage space for both mission-critical and enterprise applications.”

The new 2TB drives are also the world’s largest in the standard 2.5-inch form factor, and Foremay has made available these characteristics in both their the SC199 and TC166 SSD families. The SC199 version targets military, aerospace, medical, and other mission critical applications with enhanced vibration, shock, drop resistance, and wide temperature tolerances as much as -40 ~ +85°C or wider (depending upon customer requirement). The TC166 version addresses terminal computing environments that require low power consumption, long battery life, robustness against shock/ vibration/ drops, long life-time, data protection and security, noiseless operation, low heat generation, and improved system performance.

Both SSD models support SMART, Advanced Power Management (APM), and error correction routines. Optional features include fast erase, MIL-SPEC secure erase methods, hardware based encryption and conformal coatings.

No details on price or availability (or performance) but we’ll keep you posted on that one. No doubt the price will be a ‘first-born-plus-arm-and-leg’ affair, anyway.

I am a computer technician who like to keep track of the best and fastest solid state drives available out there. I write simple SSD reviews and guides to help people save effort and time reading the long benchmarks and reviews.
