New Version of Crucial SSD Software Enhances Burst Performance
Enhancements Allow Users to Increase Performance, Extend Lifetime, and Monitor Health of Crucial SSDs
TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 2, 2015 — (Computex 2015) — Crucial, a leading global brand of memory and storage upgrades, today announced significant updates to its Storage Executive tool. The new version (3.20) features Momentum Cache, an intelligent caching feature that can enhance burst performance by up to 10x1, and allows users to extend SSD lifetime by reducing redundant writes. The tool uses idle memory for caching as needed, and installs easily via the Storage Executive interface.
In addition to the new features, Storage Executive also allows users to:
- Update to the latest firmware
- Monitor drive’s temperature and health
- Reset the drive’s encryption password
- Easily check how much storage has been used
“We want everyone to enjoy the benefits of solid state storage,” said Jonathan Weech, storage marketing manager, Crucial. “Software that optimizes performance and keeps Crucial SSDs running efficiently is another example of how we make upgrading easy.”
Crucial Storage Executive can be easily installed from www.crucial.com/se, is compatible with Microsoft® Windows® 7 and newer operating systems, and works with the Crucial M500, M550, MX100, MX200, and BX100 SSDs.
An equivalent version of Storage Executive is also available for Micron client SSDs at micron.com/storage-executive.
