Addonics M2 SSD Controllers/Adapters Take Advantage of the PCI Express Connection to Build a High-Performance SSD System with 1000MB/sec Throughput
SAN JOSE, CA (May 13, 2015) — Addonics Technologies (www.addonics.com) today announced a M2 Hybrid Controller and M2 SSD (Solid State Drive) adapter that gives PCIe-based systems a performance boost over SATA-based SSDs with READ/WRITE speeds up to 1000 MB/s via a PCIe 4-lane slot.
The Addonics Dual Hyper HDD – M2 Hybrid Controller, and the M2 PCIe SSD Adapter X100 are economical solutions for building your own SSD for IO intensive applications such as gaming, video editing, CAD/CAM or workstations.
The Dual Hyper HDD – M2 SSD Hybrid Controller (model AD4SAHM2) is a two port SATA III PCI-e 4-lane host controller combined with two M2 (NGFF) SSD slots.
In standard mode, the connected two M2 SSDs and the two SATA hard drives can be set up to operate as four individual drives or combined to form a RAID 0, RAID 1 or RAID 10 group . The two SATA ports are Port Multiplier compatible and SATA III compliant with maximum throughput up to 6Gbps. When set to operate in Hybrid mode, the M2 SSD can be paired with a high capacity hard drive to significantly increase the overall performance of the storage system.
The M2 PCIe SSD Adapter (model AD2M2S-PX4) allows you to install a combination of one M2 PCI SSD and two M2 SATA SSDs in size ranging from 32 mm to 110 mm in length. The Adapter fits into a PCIe 4 lane slot of any desktop system or server running any OS and requires no software drivers. It is a simple and economical solution to replace a mechanical hard drive with a low power, shock resistant and high performance Solid State Drive. It is also perfect for adding as many as three high performance M2 SSD’s via a single PCIe slot. Once installed, the M2 PCIe and the two M2 SSDs appear as three high-speed solid state drives to the OS.
