KIOXIA America Showcases Breakthrough Flash Storage Solutions at Dell Technologies World

KIOXIA PCIe 5.0, E3.S Form Factor, XL-FLASH and Value SAS SSDs to Take Center Stage

SAN JOSE, CA, April 28, 2022 – Next week at Dell Technologies World, KIOXIA America, Inc. will be on hand to demonstrate how its innovative solid state drives (SSDs) are accelerating customer application performance and enabling product breakthroughs. From SSDs designed with PCIe ® 5.0 technology that boost power and performance to the industry’s first lineup of Enterprise and Datacenter Standard Form Factor (EDSFF) E3.S SSDs1, best in class drives from KIOXIA are used in a number of Dell product lines.

 

KIOXIA, the inventor of NAND flash, sits at the forefront of flash storage and SSD innovation. Achievements such as the introduction of 3D flash memory, XL-FLASHTM storage class memory, and new form factors and interfaces underscore the contributions the company has made toward enabling next-gen applications – and transforming the digital world.

 

“A culture of innovation is the bedrock upon which a company can claim to offer breakthrough solutions – and both Dell and KIOXIA have that in their DNA,” commented Neville Ichhaporia, vice president of SSD marketing and product management, KIOXIA America, Inc. “We are proud to collaborate closely with Dell to push the limits of what’s possible in our new data-centric world.”


Visitors to the KIOXIA Dell Technologies World booth #639 on the show floor at the Venetian® Resort from May 2-5 will have access to the following technology and product demos:
 

-       SSDs Designed with PCIe Technology - demonstrating the benefits delivered over PCIe 4.0 SSDs in a variety of simulated real-world server and storage configurations and workload combinations, including:

  • CD7 EDSFF E3.S Data Center SSDs running MongoDB on Dell equipment – in one of the first public demonstrations of an E3.S drive. EDSFF E3 specifications were developed by leading companies that include Dell and KIOXIA to optimize SSD designs for capacity, power, performance, and thermal/cooling – and to replace legacy 2.5” form factor SSDs.
  • FL6 Series Enterprise NVMeTM SCM SSDs being put through their paces in a Dell PowerEdge server running Aerospike. The dual-port and PCIe 4.0-compliant KIOXIA FL6 Series SSDs bridge the gap between DRAM and TLC-based drives, making them well-suited to latency-sensitive use cases such as caching layer, tiering and write logging.
  • RM6 Series 12Gb/s SAS SSDs running SED - SEKM encryption and an OLTP database on a Dell PowerEdge R740 server. KIOXIA RM6 drives deliver higher performance and reliability and are targeted to replace SATA SSDs.
  • CM6 Series Enterprise NVMe SSDs running VMware® vSAN™ workloads on Dell PowerEdge servers. CM6 drives are designed for enterprise applications and use cases – including high-performance computing, artificial intelligence, caching layer, financial trading, and data analytics.

 

Additional demos and more information on the entire breadth of KIOXIA products and solutions can be found in the company’s 3D virtual booth:

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 bits = 1,073,741,824 bits, 1GB = 2^30 bytes = 1,073,741,824 bytes and 1TB = 2^40 bytes = 1,099,511,627,776 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, and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.
