A next-generation enterprise-class solid-state drive (SSD) is available in 1.8” and 2.5” form factors. The XceedIOPS SATA from Smart Modular Technologies is offered with either single-level cell (SLC) or enterprise-grade multi-level cell (E-MLC) NAND technologies. The XceedIOPS SATA integrates E-MLC technology, which provides significantly more endurance than SSDs based on commercial MLC NAND flash. 

Endurance for E-MLC is specified at 20,000 program/erase (P/E) cycles, whereas current-generation commercial MLC demonstrates 1,500 or 5,000 P/E cycles, depending on the NAND flash vendor. The combination of the SF-1500 processor’s minimal write amplification and E-MLC flash enables the XceedIOPS SATA SSD to handle the most demanding workloads. For example, a 5-year lifetime can be easily achieved with a 400 Gbyte XceedIOPS SATA in an environment that demands 250 Mbyte/s sustained write and a 40% duty cycle.

Featuring a SATA 2.6 interface and support for native command queuing (NCQ), the new XceedIOPS SATA 1.8” and 2.5” SSDs are optimized for performance up to 30K IOPS random read/write, 250 Mbyte/s sustained read/write and high capacity up to 400 Gbytes. High reliability is achieved through flash management techniques such as power and data fail protection, data path protection and an enhanced error correction code (ECC) engine.
