The EDGE 60GB Boost Cache mSATA 6Gb/s Internal Solid State Drive is ideal for users looking to enter the solid state drive market, but not yet give up their traditional hard drive. By installing the Boost Cache mSATA drive as a secondary drive, users are able to realize the incredible performance gains of a solid state drive while maintaining the storage capacity benefits of the original hard drive. Measuring about 1/8 the size of a standard 2.5" solid state drive, the EDGE Boost Cache is a revolutionary flash-based storage device.
The included Dataplex Cache Software by NVELO works in tandem with a standard hard drive and the Boost Cache mSATA solid state drive. Frequently used "hot" data and applications are cached to the high-performance Boost Cache mSATA drive. Infrequently used "cold" data and apps stay on the hard drive. The result is a faster, more efficient computing experience with improved boot times, application loading, and file browsing. Plus, the Dataplex software works in the background to monitor user usage and tendencies. As the computer is used with the Boost Cache mSATA drive installed, the software automatically decides what data and applications should be on the SSD and what should be on the hard drive.
Utilizing a premium SandForce controller, the Boost Cache mSATA drive can achieve ultra fast read and write speeds of up to 535MB/s. With no moving parts inside, Boost Cache mSATA solid state drives are more reliable and less susceptible to mechanical failures than hard drives. This also results in lower power consumption, lower heat emission, and completely silent operation.
