Toshiba Memory expands NVMe SSD portfolio

Toshiba Memory Europe GmbH announces the availability of its XD5 Series NVMe™ SSD platform in a 2.5-inch, 7mm low-profile form factor that is optimized for low-latency and performance consistency in read-intensive workloads.

Developed for both data center and cloud environments, the new 2.5-inch form factor XD5 Series is ideal for NoSQL databases, large-scale-out data mining and analysis, and streaming applications. The XD5 Series is also well-suited for Open Compute Project (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 XD5 SSD 2.5-inch option delivers sequential read performance up to 2,700 megabytes per second (MB/s) and sequential write performance up to 895MB/s with low active power consumption of 7 watts[2]. At one drive write per day[3] (DWPD), the XD5 Series can write nearly 4 terabytes (TB) of random data daily for five years at a consistent performance rate. Random read/write performance is specified at 250,000/21,000 Input/Output Operations per Second[2] (IOPS) respectively, making the XD5 Series a predictable and reliable solution for read-intensive or heavy transactional workloads.

The XD5 2.5-inch Series expands Toshiba Memory’s broad data center SSD portfolio and complements the previously released M.2 22110 form factor which supports 1,920 gigabyte (GB) and 3,840GB capacities[4]. The flash memory and controllers leveraged within the XD5 Series offer high reliability, data protection, end-to-end error detection and power-loss protection, and the product is backed by a five-year limited warranty.

“Expanding our already broad NVMe portfolio with the new XD5 shows Toshiba Memory’s commitment enabling cloud data centers 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.
