CEA Names SanDisk Vaulter Disk as 2008 Best of Innovations in Enabling Technologies Category

SanDisk Vaulter Disk

The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) has named the SanDisk Vaulter Disk as 2008 Best of Innovations in the Enabling Technologies Category. The honor was awarded during a press conference at CES Unveiled, where the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) announced its 2008 Innovations Design and Engineering awards for products that will debut at the International CES (Jan. 7-10) in Las Vegas.

The device is a Flash-based PCI Express module that works in conjunction with a PC’s hard drive to store and launch the computer’s operating system and software applications. It works simultaneously with the hard drive to provide enhanced performance over a PC that has only a hard drive.

The SanDisk Vaulter Disk enables the PC to harness the speed of embedded flash memory for frequently accessed files while continuing to use a spinning hard drive for bulk storage of less frequently accessed data.

It will be offered to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) early next year in capacities of from 8GB to 16GB.
