Solidigm, previously Intel’s SSD enterprise that now belongs to SK Hynix, has launched its new enterprise-grade PCIe Gen4 SSDs designed for read-intensive and blended workloads. The brand new D7-P5520 and D7-P5620 drives are set to be obtainable in capacities of as much as 15.36TB and in numerous server kind components.
Because the successor of Intel’s SSD division, Solidigm already has a slightly aggressive lineup of server SSDs, and the brand new D7-P5520 and D7-P5620 merchandise complement already present Intel-branded drives. The brand new SSDs are based mostly on a proprietary controller developed by Solidigm (properly, Intel) in addition to 3D NAND reminiscence produced in home. The drives absolutely help up to date enterprise-grade capabilities and administration options (e.g., NVMe-MI 1.1, PCIe over VDM, PCIe over MCTP), together with end-to-end knowledge path safety, energy loss-safe firmware design, superior telemetry, and so forth.
From efficiency perspective, Solidigm’s D7-P5520 and D7-P5620 drives are rated for as much as 7100MB/s sequential learn pace in addition to as much as 4200MB/s sequential write pace. As for random efficiency, Solidigm’s D7-P5520 and D7-P5620 SSDs are rated for as much as 1100K/220K learn/write IOPS.
Relying on the workload, Solidigm’s D7-P5520 and D7-P5620 are 20%–100% sooner in comparison with their predecessors, in keeping with the producer.
Solidigm’s D7-P5520 SSD is rated for as much as 1 DWPD (drive writes per day) over 5 years and might be obtainable in U.2, E1.S, and E1.L kind components with capacities as much as 15.36TB. The D7-P5620 in the meantime is designed for extra write intensive workloads and is rated for 3 DWPD over 5 years and is about to ship in a 2.5-inch/15mm U.2 kind issue.
For the reason that D7-P5520 and D7-P5620 are designed for servers, they’re rigorously examined to make sure reliability, predictable efficiency, and longevity. Solidigm has not introduced pricing of its D7-P5520 and D7-P5620 drives, which isn’t notably stunning as they are going to be offered to server makers and their precise costs will rely upon the volumes ordered.
