Apacer launched its newest line of enterprise/industrial SSDs, the SAFD25A series. Built in the 2.5-inch form-factor with SATA 6 Gb/s interface, the SSDs come in variants with SLC and MLC NAND flash memory.

The SAFD25A SSDs from Apacer are designed for enterprise environments with demanding data-transaction loads, or large amounts of "hot-data" (data that's frequently accessed, such as a database). The company did not reveal what is the make of its controller, but specified some performance numbers on its end: up to 475 MB/s reads, up to 360 MB/s writes, up to 50,000 IOPS random access performance. 

While the SAFD25A packs single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash memory, Apacer also has a cost-effective multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash memory-based variant, the SAFD25A-M. There is just one capacity option for the two – 512 GB.

The SAFD25A SSDs from Apacer are slated for Q3, 2012. The company did not reveal pricing.
