SSD benefits from Microsoft Azure sphere
Featuring end-to-end security from edge to the cloud, the Innodisk InnoAGE SSD comes with a Microsoft Azure Sphere inside and is integrated with Innodisk’s customised firmware, software, and hardware technology.
It is available at distributor New Yorker Electronics.
This new solution enables multi-functional management: smart data analysis and updates, data security and remote control through the cloud, while benefiting from the power of the Azure Sphere to guarantee secured communications between the SSD and the cloud.
The SSD delivers an easy-to-use interface with its customised cloud management platform.
In technical terms, the Innodisk-developed firmware receives commands from the Azure Sphere via a second connection to Azure.
This enables it to execute SSD debugging messages as well as monitor read/write behavior patterns to increase the storage device’s lifespan.
System operators can quickly revert to the default settings from the cloud-based dashboard in the case of a device or system crash. Memory cells are stacked vertically on the chip in a 3D NAND flash with TLC.
So the InnoAGE SSD is designed for both in-band and out-of-band network management, providing full recovery even when the operating system has crashed or is severely impaired to the extent where in-band management would be of little help.
The SSD’s hardware level allows easy and simple development and it supports out-of-band network management and diverse platforms as well as wireless 2.4/5GHz dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi and Ethernet.
Applications include Smart Data, Security and Remote Management
