Posted on March 25, 2020 by Robin Wessel

I’m sure like millions of others around the world your new office is, if you’re lucky, your dedicated home office and if you are not quite as lucky like me, one half of the dining room table with the other half dedicated to my wife.

Free ebook: PCIe Removable Drives

Posted on February 5, 2018 by CRU

For years, CRU has been supplying removable drives for HP, Dell, and other computers purchased by Federal agencies, military organizations, and government entities around the world. For the most part, our customers have been using SATA hard drives and SSDs in their removables, though, we still provide removable devices to organizations with legacy applications that use, for example, SCSI and IDE interfaces.

The reasons are always the same: our customers want a simple, rugged solution for data security and/or data transport. 

As storage technology continues to evolve, so have CRU removable drives. The most recent innovations in the world of storage have been with speedy flash memory and SSDs.

These drives are either soldered directly to the motherboard or installed into a PCIe slot. PCIe/NVMe drives come in various physical sizes and capacities and have about an 8x speed advantage compared to their SATA counterparts, so naturally, people want to take advantage of the performance gains.
