ServerBeach Tests the MTRON MSD-SATA 6000 Series



ServerBeach has been recently testing out the MTRON MSD-SATA drives. This is currently being beta tested in our San Antonio data center and not available to the general public at this time, but we’re working on it!


The MTRON MSD-SATA 6000 Series features high performance with sustained throughput reading at 100MB/s and writing at 80MB/s. The Access time is less than 0.1 mses!

The MTRON MSD-SATA 6000 has high reliability with

– Wear-leveling Algorithm
– BCH 7 Bit Error Correction Code (ECC)
– Bad Block Management Algorithm
– Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF): 1,000,000 hours
– Data Retention: 10 years at 25 degrees Celcius

A ServerBeach customer, Kevin Burton has been testing and running benchmarks on this drive and posting frequent updates on his blog. Thanks Kevin!

While this is still being tested at ServerBeach, we expect to be able to offer this to our customers in the near future. Be sure to keep an eye on our website and your future e-mails!

  1. I bought one of these (32gb) and can’t quite get 16000 random iops (512 byte read). Anyone know what could be stopping this? Any suggested fast raid/sata cards that would help me to achieve the higher speeds? Is my dell dimension 9200 motherboard just too slow?

  2. Wow, that’s an awesome access time. Would standard business users notice much difference in application performance. You gotta love the 114 year MTBF !
