CM6-R Series

Enterprise SSD


Enterprise NVMe™ Read-intensive SSD

The CM6-R series is a read-intensive SSD that is optimized to support a broad range of enterprise applications and associated workloads, including business intelligence, online transaction processing, and software defined storage and virtualization. Built on PCIe® 4.0 and NVMe™ 1.4 technology, the CM6 Series SSDs deliver excellent performance up to 1.4M IOPS (random read), with maximum power consumption of 25 W.
Featuring KIOXIA Corporation's 96-layer BiCS FLASH™ 3D TLC memory, the CM6-R Series of enterprise NVMe™ SSDs deliver 1 DWPD (Drive Writes Per Day) of endurance and support storage capacities up to 30.72 TB*, making them ideally suited for read-intensive enterprise applications.

*The model names and details of 15.36TB, and 30.72TB models will be disclosed after July as available.

  • Product image may differ from the actual product.
  • Definition of capacity: KIOXIA Corporation defines a megabyte (MB) as 1,000,000 bytes, a gigabyte (GB) as 1,000,000,000 bytes and a terabyte (TB) as 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1GB = 2^30 = 1,073,741,824 bytes and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system, such as Microsoft Operating System and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.
    GT/s: Giga Transfers per second.
  • A kibibyte (KiB) means 2^10, or 1,024 bytes.
  • MTTF (Mean Time to Failure) is not a guarantee or estimate of product life; it is a statistical value related to mean failure rates for a large number of products which may not accurately reflect actual operation. Actual operating life of the product may be different from the MTTF.
  • DWPD: Drive Write Per Day. One full drive write per day means the drive can be written and re-written to full capacity once a day every day for the specified lifetime. Actual results may vary due to system configuration, usage and other factors.
  • Read and write speeds may vary depending on various factors such as host devices, software (drivers, OS etc.), and read/write conditions.
  • IOPS: Input Output Per Second (or the number of I/O operations per second).

[1] The Sanitize Instant Erase (SIE), Self-Encrypting Drive (SED), FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standards) optional models are available.
[2] SIE option supports Crypto Erase, which is a standardized feature defined by NVM Express Inc.
[3] SED supports TCG Opal and Ruby SSCs. It has a few unsupported TCG Opal features. For more details, please make inquiries through "Contact us" in each region's website, https://business.kioxia.com/
[4] FIPS drives are designed to comply with FIPS 140-2 Level 2, which define security requirements for cryptographic module by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology). For the latest validation status of each model, please contact us in each region's website, https://business.kioxia.com/
[5] Optional security feature compliant drives are not available in all countries due to export and local regulations.
