Greenliant ArmourDrive SSDs Exceed 250,000+ P/E Cycles By Using EnduroSLC Technology

Designed with Greenliant's EnduroSLC Technology, ArmourDrive EX Series solid state storage products are ideal for high reliability applications requiring superior data retention.

SANTA CLARA, CALIF. and BEIJING, CHINA - AUGUST 28, 2019 - Greenliant is now sampling its new high-reliability SATA 6Gb/s ArmourDrive™ EX Series products to customers that need ultra robust data retention, ultra high endurance data storage capable of operating under heavy workloads in extreme environments. Designed with Greenliant's EnduroSLC™ Technology, SATA ArmourDrive EX Series solid state storage modules achieve 50K, 100K and industry-leading 250K+ program-erase (P/E) cycles and provide enhanced data retention. EnduroSLC-enabled SSDs offer high data storage integrity and can withstand wide temperature operations without losing data.

The new industrial temperature (-40°C to +85°C) EnduroSLC ArmourDrive products with 1-bit-per-cell (SLC) NAND include:

• SATA M.2 EX Series (2242: 8GB-128GB / 2280: 8GB-256GB):

• mSATA EX Series (8GB-128GB):

• SATA 2.5" EX Series (16GB-256GB):

• CFast EX Series (8GB-128GB):

The SATA ArmourDrive EX Series expands the EnduroSLC product family, which also includes SATA 6Gb/s NANDrive™ and 100-ball/153-ball eMMC NANDrive™ ball grid array (BGA) solid state drives (SSDs).

"SSD and memory card users that need super-high endurance and long-term data retention over a broad temperature range have limited options, since today's NAND flash marketplace is highly focused on consumer applications," said Jim Handy, principal analyst, Objective Analysis. "Greenliant's EnduroSLC products should find a warm reception among these elite users."


Greenliant is sampling select ArmourDrive EX Series products with 50K, 100K and 250K endurance, and plans to start volume shipping in 4Q 2019. 3D MLC NAND-based ArmourDrive MX Series products are also expected to ship in volume in 4Q 2019 with sampling in early 4Q 2019.
