Toshiba Memory Corporation unveils world’s first[1] craving SSDs utilizing 64-layer, 3D peep memory

TOKYO–(Antara/BUSINESS WIRE)– Toshiba Memory Corporation, a universe personality in memory solutions, currently denounced a growth of a world’s first[1] craving SSDs utilizing 64-layer, 3D peep memory. The dual new product lines, a PM5 12Gbit/s SAS array and a CM5 NVM Express™ (NVMe™) series, implement Toshiba Memory Corporation’s BiCS FLASH™ 3D peep memory, permitting today’s perfectionist storage environments to enhance a use of peep memory with cost-optimized 3D peep memory. With all-new, modernized feature-sets, a innovative PM5 and CM5 array lift a bar for opening capabilities and emanate new opportunities for businesses to precedence a energy of peep storage.

Sample shipments to OEM business for analysis functions start currently in singular quantities, and Toshiba Memory Corporation will gradually boost shipments from a fourth entertain of this calendar year. The new products will be exhibited and demonstrated during a Flash Memory Summit 2017 in Santa Clara, California, USA from Aug 8 to 10, during Booth #407.

The PM5 array will be accessible in a 2.5-inch form cause in capacities from 400GB to 30.72TB[2], with continuation options of 1, 3, 5 and 10DWPD (drive writes per day). The extended continuation and ability ranges of SAS SSDs will capacitate information centers to effectively residence large information final while streamlining storage deployments. With a industry’s first[3] MultiLink SASTM architecture, a PM5 array is means to broach a fastest performance[4] a marketplace has seen from any SAS-based SSD, with adult to 3350MB/s[5] of consecutive review and 2720MB/s of consecutive write in MultiLink mode and 400,000 pointless review IOPS[6] in slight or MultiLink mode. The PM5 series’ 4-port MultiLink pattern is an additional record to grasp high performance, identical to PCI EXPRESS® (PCIe®) SSDs, enabling bequest infrastructures to boost capability though re-architecting from a belligerent up. Furthermore, PM5 SSDs support Multi-Stream Write Technology, a underline that cleverly manages and groups information forms to minimize write loudness and minimize rubbish collection, translating into reduced latency, softened endurance, increasing opening and QoS.

The CM5 array will be accessible in a 2.5-inch form cause in capacities from 800GB to 15.36TB, and as an add-in label form form cause with continuation options of 1, 3 and 5DWPD. Positioned as a subsequent era NVMe SSD, a dual-port PCIe Gen3 x4 CM5 is a full-featured craving SSD, NVMe over Fabric-ready with scatter-gather list (SGL) and controller memory aegis (CMB) features. Furthermore, a CM5 array will be a initial to capacitate a Persistent Memory Region (PMR) underline for business looking to enlarge complement memory though a use of costly Non-Volatile DIMMs (NV-DIMMs) in their servers. PMR creates it probable for a singular SSD resolution to yield both high opening storage and determined memory to accommodate complement opening requirements[7] while significantly shortening costs. The CM5 array has glorious opening with adult to 800,000IOPS pointless review and 240,000 (5DWPD model) and 220,000 (3DWPD model) pointless write IOPS during a limit energy pull of 18W. Like PM5 SSDs, a array also supports Multi-Stream Write Technology.

[2] Definition of capacity: Toshiba Memory Corporation defines a terabyte (TB) as 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. A mechanism handling system, however, reports storage ability regulating powers of 2 for a clarification of 1TB = 240 bytes = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes and therefore shows reduction storage capacity. Available storage ability (including examples of several media files) will change formed on record size, formatting, settings, program and handling system, such as Microsoft Operating System and/or pre-installed program applications, or media content. Actual formatted ability might vary
