Expanded SSD portfolio targets cloud data centres
Subs & Systems
Toshiba Memory Europe has announced its XD5 Series NVMe SSD platform in a 2.5", 7mm low-profile form factor that is optimised for low-latency and performance consistency in read-intensive workloads. Created for both data centre and cloud environments, the new 2.5" form factor is perfect for NoSQL databases, large-scale-out data mining and analysis, and streaming applications. The series is also ideal for OCP applications and systems.
Built on 64-layer BiCS FLASH TLC (3-bit-per-cell) 3D flash memory, and featuring a PCIe Gen3x4 interface, the new SSD delivers sequential read performance up to 2,700MB/s and sequential write performance up to 895MB/s with low active power consumption of 7W. At one DWPD, the series can write nearly 4TB of random data daily for five years at a consistent performance rate. Random read/write performance is specified at 250,000/21,000IOPS respectively, making the series a predictable and reliable solution for read-intensive or heavy transactional workloads.
“Expanding our already broad NVMe portfolio with the new XD5 shows Toshiba Memory’s commitment enabling cloud data centres with a wide variety of solutions for every need including high reliability, low-power solutions and consistent application performance,” explains Paul Rowan, Vice President SSD Business Unit, Toshiba Memory Europe GmbH.
