The InnoAGE™ SSD comes with a Microsoft Azure Sphere inside, and is further integrated with Innodisk’s customized firmware, software, and hardware technology. This new solution enables multifunctional management: smart data analysis and updates, data security, and remote control through the cloud, while benefitting from the power of the Azure Sphere to guarantee secured communications between the SSD and the cloud.
The InnoAGE™ SSD delivers an easy-to-use interface with its customized cloud management platform. In technical terms, the Innodisk-developed firmware receives commands from the Azure Sphere via a second connection to Azure. Therefore, it is able to execute SSD debugging messages as well as monitor read/write behavior patterns to increase the storage device’s lifespan. Most importantly, system operators can quickly revert to the default settings from the cloud-based dashboard in the case of a device or system crash.
In other words, the InnoAGE™ SSD is designed for both in-band and out-of-band network management, providing full recovery even when the operating system has crashed or is severely impaired to the extent that in-band management would be of little help.
