Innodisk claims its new Fire Shield SSD can withstand temperatures of 1500 degrees Fahrenheit
Innodisk is a company involved in the manufacture of highly robust, reliable data storage for applications such as servers and others in need of serious hard-drives. It claims that its latest SSD is designed to survive heat equivalent to 800 degrees Celsius (or 1500 degrees Fahrenheit). This new technology involves a drive housing based on the flight recorders found in aircraft.
This Fire Shield SSD(TM) has apparently exhibited the abilty to keep data stored on it 100% accurate after exposure to its apparent maximum operating temperature for 30 minutes.Innodisk claims that this is due to its triple-layer enclosure, made of over 20 separate heat-resistant compounds. The innermost of these is described as a "heat-isolating lining material", which is surrounded by a drive-securing series of connectors and a "flame-resistant" copper alloy.
So far, this Fire Shield SSD is found in a 3.5-inch SATA SSD form, which is best suited to large-scale data management or other professional-grade applications. However, Innodisk is also directing this technology at the automotive industry and the data-storage solutions currently involved in it. Then again, this new Fire Shield protective standard may also make it to more conventional, 2.5-inch Innodisk drives one day.
