The PX04SL Series SAS eSSD is optimised for data warehousing, web servers, media streaming and video on demand

Düsseldorf, Germany, 19th January, 2016 – Toshiba Electronics Europe has announced the availability of a new very read-intensive, enterprise SAS solid state drive (SSD) – the PX04SL Series. The PX04SL Series is optimised for read-intensive application workloads such as data warehousing, web servers, media streaming, and video on demand (VOD). 

The PX04SL can offer the most cost-effective solutions in the PX04S generation. Available in 2TB[1] and 4TB capacities, the PX04SL assists organisations in minimising total cost of ownership (TCO) without sacrificing performance. With sustained random read performance of 270K IOPS[2], the PX04SL helps read-intensive application workloads achieve superior results.

To combat bottlenecks, this SAS SSD provides high-density storage for efficient data throughput to deliver high performance, reliability and endurance for maximum application scalability.

“The PX04SL joins our exceptional third generation SAS SSDs and leverages Toshiba’s vertical integration and leadership strengths in the growing SSD market,” said Martin Larsson, vice president of Toshiba Electronics Europe, Storage Products Division.

The PX04SL eSSDs are available today. For more information on Toshiba’s line of industry-leading enterprise SSDs, HDDs and SSHDs, visit


[1] Definition of capacity: Toshiba defines a megabyte (MB) as 1,000,000 bytes, a gigabyte (GB) as 1,000,000,000 bytes and a terabyte (TB) as 1,000,000,000,000 bytes.  A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1TiB = 240 = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes and therefore shows less storage capacity.  Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system, such as Microsoft Operating System and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content.  Actual formatted capacity may vary.

[2] Read and write speed may vary depending on the host device, read and write conditions, and file size.
