SandForce, maker of flash memory processors, has left stealth mode to release its first line of products tailored to enterprise applications like data centers and personal computers. The Saratoga, Calif. company says its SF-1000 model is more reliable and allows for more data retention than other chips of its kind. It previously raised an undisclosed amount of funding over two rounds from DCM and Storm Ventures.

SandForce uses flash memory in enterprise and mobile computing applications along with its SSD Processors. Today it unveiled its first product family, the SF-1000 SSD Processor. The idea is to replace enterprise-class hard disk drives with flash memory.
