Toshiba HK4 Family of Non-Encrypted Data Center Optimized SATA SSDs Enable NetApp to Reach New Markets

 

Toshiba Electronics Europe (TEE) announces that its non-encrypted HK4 SATA Series SSDs are being utilized in selected NetApp SolidFire® all-flash array models without encryption, enabling NetApp customers to reach new markets. As a key SSD supplier for NetApp SolidFire, this news demonstrates Toshiba’s commitment to continued momentum and growth in the industry following the recently announced IDC market reports, which identified Toshiba as the fastest growing vendor for 2016 in the $17 billion SSD segment.

Toshiba’s HK4 SATA SSDs will enhance the NetApp SolidFire SF4805, SF9605 and SF19210 products, offering data center optimized latency, power, and performance with encryption options for applications, such as analytics, web servers, files servers, database and virtualized environments. The HK4 Series represents Toshiba’s first line of non-encrypted SATA SSDs for SolidFire products, complementing the existing family of encrypted HK4 SSDs.

“Our customers require predictable and highly efficient performance; and they get that with Toshiba Data Center SSDs,” said Peter Wuest, Senior Director Emerging Solutions & Innovation Group EMEA, at NetApp. “With the addition of Toshiba’s non-encrypted SSDs, NetApp SolidFire products can now address markets like for example Russia where non-encrypted drives are required.”

This new integration marks the most recent collaboration between Toshiba and NetApp, building on last year’s collaborative efforts during which the two companies announced the availability of FIPS certified SSDs with Toshiba’s PX04S 12Gbit/s[4] SAS SSDs for encrypted data environments.

“Toshiba is utilising its design expertise to bring innovation to customers like NetApp,” said Paul Rowan, General Manager at Toshiba Electronics Europe, SSD Business Unit. “We continually strive to deliver exceptional product quality and support the demanding needs of NetApp’s ecosystem and customers.”
