Solid-state disk Element SAS SSD, as its name suggests, is equipped with dual-ported interface to connect SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) 6.0 Gbps, which ensures high speed data transmission. At the heart of the drive are NAND flash memory chips such as MLC, eMLC or SLC (depending on version), in addition, implemented an advanced NAND architecture with parallel channels.

This architecture allows a high level of performance and durability, which is especially important for enterprise solutions. Improving the reliability and data integrity and availability contributes to the Element SAS SSD support for specific technologies, for example, the functions of "smart" recording control. Added that in a series of Element SAS SSD includes models based on SLC NAND capacity of 50, 100 and 200 GB as well as versions with memory MLC / eMLC volume of 100, 200 and 400 GB.
