"The technology we put into our Talino architecture puts BitMicro far beyond what anyone else is doing with solid state storage," BitMicro CEO Rey Bruce said. "In terms of performance, scalability, and reliability, there's no other architecture that can match what Talino can deliver. And we will continue the innovation of Talino so it will remain cutting edge for years to come."
Interface controllers are built directly into the ASIC, with 8x 5Gbps PCIe lanes, 2x 6Gb SAS ports and 2x 6Gb SATA ports.
BitMicro's initial maxIO product line, due out by the end of 2012, will use the Talino architecture and is expected to include PCIe, NVMe and SAS interfaces.
