Not all PCIe SSD are made the same: the KIOXIA difference
Today’s digital-first businesses need hardware that meets the challenging demands placed on their infrastructure by an increasing number of tasks that need to be completed at faster speeds. Only with that capability can companies get the edge they need to push ahead of their competitors.
For storage, that means the most efficient and fastest media for data reads and writes, with maximum reliability, and the longest possible lifespan for drives.
Reading and writing data – the lifeblood of any business – must be as quickly as possible. It also must be done safely, with the knowledge that the information will be held securely and reliably. Issues like “bit rot” or degrading disks can seriously impact on business performance, with slow retrieval rates and a diminished drive capacity developing over time.
That’s why it pays to equip organizations with solid state drives that set the standard for speed, efficiency, longevity and reliability. As the inventors of flash drives, Toshiba Memory (now rebranded as KIOXIA) has always been at the front of technology’s progress in storage, and its ranges of SSD and NVMe are the industry benchmark against which other drives are measured.
For optimum performance, enterprises choose NVMe storage technologies over drives that connect over SATA for next-generation performance levels.
That’s why you will find NVMe drives in the flagship models of today’s hardware vendors best products: powerful workstations, laptops, and desktop PCs, in advanced IoT, and in infrastructures where both high performance and reliability have to be assured.
The entire range of EXCERIA PLUS G2 NVMe drives from KIOXIA interface directly with hardware’s fast PCIe ports — effectively plugging straight into the heart of the system’s motherboard. As a result, users get maximum performance, with read/write speeds of 3.2GB per second — enough for even the most demanding tasks.
The range is available in 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB models that use BiCS 3D FLASHtm memory and advanced 3D silicon structures to improve write reliability, faster data interchange, and better capacity in a small form factor. As a result, each unit’s power consumption metrics are low.
The EXCERIA PLUS G2 range utilizes an 8-channel controller developed in-house by this innovation-leading company. This firmware controller is unique to KIOXIA and undertakes storage and drive control directly on the circuit board. It optimizes in real-time, and caches data for lightning reads and writes. The units present in a plug-and-play M.2 2280 form factor that outperforms others even under extreme computing environments.
That makes the drives perfect for laptops, mobile computing, and powerful desktop workstations — anywhere achieving the best possible performance is needed. (You’ll find KIOXIA EXCERIA PLUS G2 drives at the heart of high-end gaming computers too, for users who demand the absolute best in their pro-level rigs.) In business contexts, the EXCERIA PLUS G2 is to be found today in the most advanced research facilities, artificial intelligence labs, and new-generation IIoT deployments.
For companies that demand the best, decision makers equip facilities and their employees with the most advanced tools available today on the market.
The KIOXIA company continues to innovate and expand, announcing the beginning of construction of a new fabrication facility in February this year to support the production of 6th-generation 3D Flash memory — the company’s commitment to supplying market-leading technology continues.
