Brief update:

More and more of our customers have been moving away from hard drives toward solid state storage.  But for the last month we have seen shortages for both the Intel 330 series and 525 series of Solid State Drives — even as demand has soared.  Both the 330 and 525 were relatively short life cycle SSDs.  Intel listed the S3500 as the successor in the migration path.

Happily, we have a number of excellent Emphase industrial drives available and the S3500 is (almost) here.  According to Sammi Xie, our purchasing manager and supply chain wizard, these new drives will be here by Friday 6/22.

Here’s a picture of the drive, along with a spec table below.
