Akitio Releases 256GB SSD Thunderbolt Storage Solution

Akitio's new storage solution boasts larger capacity and joins the original 120GB SSD solution previously launched by the company in 2012

Santa Fe Springs, Calif. - April 23, 2013 - Akitio, a leading manufacturer of storage solutions, today announced the release of the company's new 256GB one bay, bus powered Thunderbolt storage solution. Akitio's new larger capacity storage solution is a follow-up to the company's successful 120GB SSD solution, which was previously launched in 2012.


Akitio has upgraded the 120 GB SSD to meet the demand of consumers by rising up to the challenge and offering an upgraded 256 GB SSD version of the Neutrino Thunderbolt. In addition, the 256 GB version is the fastest one bay bus powered external storage device on the market today.

"Akitio's new 256 GB SSD version is a result of the needs voiced by technology enthusiasts everywhere, "stated Richard Wright, Director of Global Distribution, Akitio. "The new 256GB option is something that Akitio users have been longing for, as the original 120GB product was just not large enough for many people involved in video editing and other occupations where larger storage capacity was required."

Designed elegantly in a compact size, the 256 GB SSD Neutrino Thunderbolt features the following:

• 464 MB/second data transfer speeds
• Thunderbolt cable, making it a true "plug and play" solution
• High performance SATA controller
• Enhanced speed, performance and flexibility


Akitio's 256 GB Neutrino Thunderbolt Edition is available for purchase at an MRSP starting price of $339.99 and can be found at Akitio.com, as well as Amazon.com and other various Akitio retailers and distributors.
