Sustained high-performance, tested long-term reliability and double data protection
The Plextor M5Pro is a professional SSD designed for business and advanced users who demand high performance, reliability, and true data integrity. It uses the latest Marvell 88SS9187 controller and this provides it with random read / write speeds of up to 100,000 / 88,000 IOPS. Even under heavy loads the multi-core controller and exclusive Plextor firmware make the M5Pro extremely fast, reliable and stable.
Multi-Tasking and Ultra-high Performance
The combination of the latest Marvell 88SS9187 controller and the best quality Japanese Toshiba Toggle NAND flash creates M5Pro with enterprise-class performance. It has the ability to consistently deliver random read / write speeds up to 100,000/88,000 IOPS and sequential read / write speeds up to 540 / 470 MB/s. This makes the M5Pro suitable for use in a heavy workstation, server role, or Raid 0 configuration.
Enterpise-Grade Double-Data Protection
In line with the needs of advanced users for data integrity and confidentiality the M5Pro offers a unique enterprise-grade double-data protection technology. Using latest 128-bit error correction system built into the latest Marvell controller it is able to automatically check and correct the accuracy of data being read from the Flash memory. This is complemented by a second layer of read protection offered by the Robust Data Hold-out algorithm in Plextor’s exclusive firmware, allowing the drive to achieve total data accuracy even in the long-term.
For data confidentiality the M5Pro supports full drive encryption with an Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256 bit algorithm using its US Government AES-validated Marvell controller.
