Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. (TAEC), a committed technology leader, today unveiled the development of two new flagship enterprise solid state drive (SSD) solutions, the TMC PM5 12Gbit/s SAS series and the CM5 NVM Express® (NVMe™) series. Development is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter. Both product lines are built with TMC’s latest 64 layer, 3-bit-per-cell enterprise-class TLC (triple-level cell) BiCS FLASH, making it possible for today’s demanding storage environments to expand the use of flash with cost-optimized 3D flash memory. With all-new, advanced features, the innovative CM5 and PM5 series raise the bar in performance capabilities and create new opportunities for businesses to leverage the power of flash storage.
Offering up to 30.72TB in a 2.5-inch form factor, the TMC PM5 series introduces a full range of endurance and capacity SAS SSDs enabling data centers to effectively address big data demands while streamlining storage deployments. With the industry’s first MultiLink SAS™ architecture, the PM5 series is able to deliver the fastest performance the market has seen from a SAS-based SSD with up to 3,350 MB/s of sequential read and 2,720 MB/s of sequential write in MultiLink mode and up to 400,000 random read IOPS in narrow or MultiLink mode. The PM5 series’ 4-port MultiLink design is an additional technology to achieve high performance, close to PCI EXPRESS® (PCIe®) SSDs, enabling legacy infrastructures to increase productivity without having to be re-architected from the ground up. Furthermore, PM5 SSDs support multi-stream write technology, a feature that intelligently manages and groups data types to minimize write amplification and minimize garbage collection, translating into reduced latency, improved endurance, increased performance and Quality of Service (QoS).Add a comment
