SK hynix Inc. (or ‘the Company’, announced it has launched NVMe(Non-Volatile Memory Express) 1TB(Terabyte) enterprise SSD based on its own 2nd generation 3D NAND Flash and in-house controller. This SSD has been recently qualified by a major customer of the Company for server use.

This cutting-edge 3D NAND based NVMe SSD supports PCIe Gen 3×4 lanes, providing higher bandwidth and lower latency to process data far quicker than SATA SSDs. Presented in a M.2 form factor, the product is ideal for open cloud servers, being in compliance with OCS(Open Cloud Server) v2.1 specifications as well as applicable to Intel Broadwell(Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2673) CPU systems. Plus, since most of the datacenter servers presented lately by OCP(Open Compute Project) have installed PCIe NVMe SSDs, the importance of NVMe SSD in the market is expected to increase gradually.

The SSD operates at 1800MB/s(Megabytes per second) and 770MB/s of sequential read/write speed and runs random read/write speed at 160,000 IOPS(Input/Output operations per second) and 30,000 IOPS.

“SK hynix is pleased to expect open cloud servers to enhance their performances with this advanced NVMe SSD” said Vice President SooHwan Choi, the Head of NAND Product Planning Office.
