CM6-V Series

Enterprise SSD


Enterprise NVMe™ Mixed-use SSD

The CM6-V series is a mixed-use SSD that is optimized to support a broad range of enterprise applications and associated workloads, including high performance computing, online transaction processing, IoT and edge computing, media streaming. Built on PCIe® 4.0 and NVMe™1.4 technology, the CM6 Series SSDs deliver excellent performance up to 1.4M IOPS (random read) and 350 KIOPS (random write), with maximum power consumption of 25 W.

Featuring KIOXIA Corporation’s 96-layer BiCS FLASH™ 3D TLC memory, the CM6-V Series of enterprise NVMe™ SSDs delivers 3 DWPD (Drive Writes Per Day) of endurance and supports storage capacities up to 12.8 TB, making them ideally suited for read and write mixed-use enterprise applications.

  • 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 performances may vary depending on the host device, read and write conditions, and file size.
  • 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" .
  • [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 make inquiries through "Contact us" .
  • [5] Optional security feature compliant drives are not available in all countries due to export and local regulations.
