Active Media Products Launches
Server-Class 2.5" SATA-III SSD, Predator™
New 6Gbps SATA Drive Supports
Transfer Speeds up to 410MB/sec
Fremont, California - February
28, 2011- Active Media Products,
a world leading manufacturer of DOMs and small form factor SSDs,
today launched a server class 2.5" SATA-III SSD that delivers
transfer speeds up to 410MB/sec. This SSD is fully downward
compatible with SATA-II and SATA-I standards, and is a drop-in
replacement for virtually any SATA HDD or SSD.
The Predator™ V3 is a SATA-III
(SATA-3) SSD supporting the lightning fast new 6Gbps host interface.
Based on the new Marvell "Van Gogh" 88SS9174 SATA-III
controller, the Predator V3 also supports very impressive random
read and write speeds, reaching up to 20,000 IOPS. This combination
of both sequential and random read and write performance means
that boot up, application load, database, video rendering, shutdown,
and other disk intensive events will occur substantially faster
than with a SATA-II drive.
The Predator V3 will deliver superb
performance in a SATA-II port, but requires a SATA-III port
to unleash it's maximum potential. For that reason, this SSD
is primarily intended for high performance servers that support
SATA-III. The Predator V3 is enclosed in a slim aluminum casing
that follows industry standard 2.5-inch drive dimensions (100
x 70 x 9.5 mm). It is both mechanically and functionally downward
compatible with SATA-II (3Gbps) and SATA-I (1.5Gbps) interfaces.
The Predator V3 SSD also includes the latest advances in reliability
including 48-bit per 2KB hardware ECC, bad block management
and wear leveling technology. The Predator V3 is offered in
64GB and 128GB capacities.

Active Media Products VP of Sales, Jerry Thomson
stated, "The Predator V3 takes full advantage of the 6Gbps
SATA interface. It delivers exceptionally fast transfer speeds
that make it ideal for disk intensive applications like video
streaming. It also boasts very low latencies and amazing IOPS
scores that are critical in database servers. The drive is fast
and reliable enough for web servers, but its affordable price
makes it viable for gaming systems as well." Both 64GB
and 128GB capacities are available now directly from ActiveMP.com.
