12-07-2017 | Apacer | Semiconductors

Apacer Technology has launched the industrial-grade PM110-M280, a high-performance PCIe SSD suitable for cloud computing, IoT, and virtual environments. This enterprise SSD features a PCIe Gen3 x4 interface for faster transmission speeds and supports industry-leading, greatly improving IOPS and low latency performance and pushing through the bottleneck of previous AHCI standards to fully maximize performance.

The company’s SSD provides the solution for fast big data processing. By using the emerging NVMe standard rather than AHCI, this device receives a performance boost that allows for higher bandwidth, low latency, and greatly increased IOPS, all of which provide advantages in cloud computing, real-time analysis, and IoT. NVMe’s autonomous power state transition and dynamic power management extend battery life for mobile devices for greater power management. In addition, the exceptional applicability and compatibility of the NVMe SSD allows it to be widely adopted in major operating systems, including Windows, Linux, Solaris, Unix, VMware, and UEFI.

As their next generation SSD, the device uses the PCIe Gen3 x4 interface and is compliant with the latest NVMe 1.2 specifications. At 4K, the SSD achieves random read and write speeds of up to 293,000 IOPS and 194,000 IOPS respectively, demonstrating remarkable computing performance. Its slim and lightweight form factors allow the device to offer more flexible applications and meet the requirements of diverse specifications, such as expandable and embedded devices, while providing exceptional reliability and transmission performance.
