Designed to maximize system density, efficiency and simplicity, KIOXIA’s EDSFF E1.x SSDs represent the future of flash storage for servers in cloud and hyperscale data centers. Leveraging the OCP “NVMe™ Cloud SSD Specification,” the flexible, efficient, small form factor E1.S replaces the bare module M.2 form factor and delivers greater density, and better performance, reliability and thermal management. E1.S is also designed to be hot-pluggable for increased serviceability, which is another benefit over M.2.
“The XD6 EDSFF E1.S is our next-generation form factor, which will power future generations of SSDs optimized for data center server platforms. KIOXIA is proud to work with local industry leaders on developing innovative storage solutions using our XD6 series,” said Paul Rowan, Vice President SSD Marketing & Engineering, KIOXIA Europe GmbH.
PCIe® 4.0 and NVMe™ 1.3c specification-compliant, KIOXIA’s XD6 series is available in E1.S 9.5mm, 15mm and 25mm form factors. The XD6 series were designed for consistent performance, low latency and reliability in 24/7 cloud data centers.
