IBM High IOPS MLC Adapter - Solid state drive - 640 GB - internal - for System x3950 X5
Based on standard PCIe architecture coupled with silicon-based NAND clustering storage technology, the High IOPS Adapter is optimized for System x racks and can be deployed in blades via the PCIe expansion units. This scalable design comes with both Single Level Cell (SLC) and MultiLevel Cell (MLC) technologies in standard PCIe form factors. While MLC offers a cost-effective alternative, SLC provides over 12x more endurance and up to 30% better performance over MLC.This adapter is designed primarily for performance-hungry servers and computing appliances while providing the added benefits of lower power and cooling costs, low management overhead, and smaller storage footprints.This adapter uses NAND flash memory as the basic building block of solid-state storage and contain no moving parts, thus it is less sensitive to issues associated with vibration, noise, and mechanical failure. This adapter is built as block devices on a PCIe bus with advanced wear-leveling, ECC, and N+1 chip-level redundancy providing unparalleled reliability and efficiency.
