As technology continues to evolve and storage demands expand, the requirement for a diverse portfolio of solid-state drives (SSDs) becomes increasingly important to customers. IBM understands that customers want flexibility in choosing storage solutions that meet their requirements. In this environment, there is also an increasing need for a low-cost, reliable, and performance-driven solution for read-intensive applications.
An affordable, read-intensive enterprise solution
Unlike client drives, these 1.8-inch and 2.5-inch hot-swap and simple-swap SSDs for IBM® System x® are equipped with a robust suite of enterprise features, including SMART attributes, hot-plug support, and uCode. They also leverage enterprise data path protection to verify data to and from NAND at every possible location and protect the integrity of the data. The NAND flash in these SSDs is screened and then tested specifically for enterprise customer use. Overall, these SSDs provide outstanding IOPs-per-watt and dollars-per-IOP for enterprise solutions and are an excellent choice for read-intensive applications.
