Introduction

KageTM K1E solid-state drive (SSD) is our latest enterprise storage device, designed to deliver the highest performance to meet the needs of today’s corporate IT administrators. Kage offers enhanced read and write speeds, leading random I/O throughput, and enterprise-class endurance. Kage accelerates performance to industry-leading levels by leveraging a multi-channel controller architecture for performance and a proprietary power supply design - VoltStreamTM that monitors and ensures data integrity in case of a host-level power fail event. Why compromise reliability or performance? The Kage SSD won't let you. Take one for a test drive and see for youself.

Superior Performance and Storage Capacity

Kage accelerates performance to industry-leading levels by leveraging a multi-channel controller architecture for performance acceleration. The result is throughput reaching 540MB/s over a SATA 3.0 interface and random input/outputs (IOPS) at small block sizes reaching 60,000.

Kage is offered in a wide range of storage capacities from 50GB to 400GB utilizing cost-effective Enterprise Multi-Level Cell (eMLC) NAND Flash based on the latest 2Xnm process technology. This allows the highest possible capacities in smaller form-factors and higher device-level performance than storage devices built using older lithography techniques.
