Toshiba Memory showcased industry's fastest-class PCIe 4.0 SSDs for enterprise applications at Flash Memory Summit

The next evolution of the PCIe interface standard

  • Düsseldorf, Germany, 29 August 2019

Toshiba Memory Europe GmbH announced that the company has developed the industry's fastest-class[1] PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSDs for enterprise applications achieving a sequential read performance of over 6.4GB/s. A reference display and a demo of the new CM6 Series SSDs was showcased at the Toshiba Memory America's booth (#307, Hall A) at the recent Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara, USA.

The CM6 Series SSDs support dual-port PCIe Gen4 x4 lanes and are NVMe 1.4 compliant. The family of enterprise NVMe SSDs will be available in a 2.5-inch form factor with capacity points from 800GB to 30TB[2] and 1 or 3 drive writes per day endurance options.

"We are delighted to follow up on the successful Toshiba Memory CM series with our new CM6 model and thereby make the next evolution of PCIe Interface standards available to our EMEA customers. PCIe Gen4 eliminates the Interface speed bottleneck to utilise the NAND Flash memory performance for demanding applications and deployments," said Frederik Haak, Senior SSD Marketing Manager, Toshiba Memory Europe GmbH. He explains further: "With an ever increasing drive density and the continued implementation of dual-port capability, we can address the capacity demands and the 'no-single-point-of-failure' requirements of our enterprise and storage customers."

[2] Definition of capacity: Toshiba Memory 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 = 230 bytes = 1,073,741,824 bytes, 1TB = 240 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, such as Microsoft Operating System and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.
