Virtium Introduces StorKit SSD Software Tools for IIoT

In a recent release, Virtium, a provider of industrial solid-state drive (SSD) and memory solutions for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), introduced new StorKit software tools.

This is a free, downloadable suite of software modules that is designed to unburden system designers of the complicated process of qualifying SSDs, provide advanced drive-protecting technologies and enable designers to take advantage of real-time monitoring and reporting of storage systems often deployed in remote locations and/or harsh environments, the company said. The software reportedly speeds the migration from single-level-cell (SLC) and multi-level-cell (MLC) to tri-level-cell (TLC) and future higher-density flash memory.

“Traditionally, designers had to be fluent in solid-state storage, operating-system access and the intricacies of SSDs in order to develop software to properly evaluate, test or debug drives,” said Pho Hoang, director of software marketing, Virtium. “Through its array of software modules and API, StorKit removes those responsibilities, enabling designers to concentrate on their applications. Moreover, StorKit simplifies SSD qualification and migration to a new generation of flash based on TLC and beyond densities, while making possible thorough monitoring and side-by-side drive comparisons that generate easy-to-understand, highly relevant SSD data — notably a drive’s wear-and-tear and expected life.”

StorKit is free of charge to Virtium customers who sign a software license agreement.
