There are no specifications yet regarding its read or write rates, pricing, or capacities. However, the company informs us that the new drive meets the Open Compute Project (OCP) specifications. The OCP was launched in 2011, in order to allow sharing of data center designs among the IT vendors, which includes Facebook, Intel, Apple, and Microsoft, along with financial companies, such as Fidelity and Bank of America.

Whether for consumer cloud or business applications, this SSD will help improve on demands for fast access to information, where split seconds drive incremental value gains.
