|✓ Hot-Swappable Drives: Remove and replace eight (8) 2.5” NVMe drives - no need to turn off and reboot
Benefits of PCIe NVMe SSDs
PCIe with NVMe moves data and storage closer to the processor, eliminating significant hardware and storage protocol-related latencies and boosting the overall performance of a system, especially with intensive tasks such as virtualization, big data applications and high-performance computing.
Better Utilization of Compute Power:
Delivers data to the processor faster and with lower latency than SATA interfaces. PCIe with NVMe technology enables the processor to avoid waiting for data, allowing for better utilization of compute power through more consistent high throughput.
Lower Cost of Ownership:
Increased data throughput and reduced latencies result in faster access to data, better scalability, using fewer drives to deliver the same data throughput, and helping to lower total cost of ownership. Disrupt datacenter compute and storage cost by reducing power and rack space while supporting more users.
Data Throughput Improvements:
NVMe enables data throughput improvements over traditional HDDs and other SSDs. NVMe-based PCIe , delivers up to 2.8GB per second read speeds, up to 1.9GB per second write speeds and up to 700,000 input and outputs per second (IOPS) using x4 PCIe drive interface.
