Intel and Hitachi announced today that they will be teaming up to develop enterprise class SSDs that use SAS and Fibre Channel interfaces. The two firms expect the first products from the working arrangement to be delivered in early 2010.

The drives are aimed at applications where extremely high input/output operations per second are required along with power efficiency. The new products will be branded and exclusively sold by Hitachi and will use Intel NAND flash memory and SSD technology.

“The new solid-state drives for the enterprise include a number of architectural breakthroughs and improve performance and energy usage models that will change enterprise computing,” said Randy Wilhelm, vice president and general manager, Intel NAND Solutions Group. “Intel and Hitachi GST share a common objective in delivering SAS/FC products based on solid-state technology that will help enterprise customers meet the skyrocketing demands for performance while reducing space, power and cooling costs.”
