iCell is a smart data protection technology that is built into Innodisk's SSDs. iCell is vital for mission-critical applications, where working under extreme conditions and without backup power is unavoidable. Our iCell technology provides a mechanism to instantaneously discharge data stored in temporary volatile DRAM buffers to flash storage, to ensure the safety of data during power failures.
To a large extent, the one crucial question for any mechanism is how fast its SSD can discharge all of its data to flash storage within the time provided, right before total power failure. To ensure that there is ample time for all of the data to be discharged, our iCell Technology is engineered with several capacitors on the IC board to provide 58ms more of a power buffer (which is crucial for large data with an average power buffer of 2ms only). With iCell Technology, Innodisk SSDs can write up to 6MB of data to flash storage in 60ms.
