KIOXIA CD7 Series EDSFF SSDs Launch with HPE Support


Kioxia Corporation announced that Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) servers and storage now support the company’s KIOXIA CD7 Series EDSFF (Enterprise and Datacenter Standard Form Factor) E3.S NVMeTM SSDs.

KIOXIA CD7 Series E3.S SSDs, the first in the industry to be built with PCIe® 5.0 technology, boost flash storage density per drive for improved energy efficiency and rack consolidation. Optional EDSFF E3.S drive bays, and the newest PCIe® 5.0 interface provide double the speed of PCIe® 4.0 to HPE ProLiant Gen11 servers, HPE Alletra 4000 data storage servers, and the HPE Synergy 480 Gen11 Compute Module.

KIOXIA CD7 Series EDSFF SSDs Specification

KIOXIA CD7 Series EDSFF E3.S is optimised for high-performance flash storage and is a logical progression of the 2.5-inch form factor. E3.S improves cooling and thermal properties and raises capacities by up to 1.5 to 2x compared to 2.5-inch drives, allowing for more dense, efficient deployments in the same rack unit.

The KIOXIA CD7 E3.S Series offers NVMeTM 1.4 SSDs with capacities ranging from 1,920 GB to 7,680 GB, all of which are compliant with the EDSFF E3.S standard and provide read-intensive 1 DWPD endurance.

Drive Write(s) Per Day (DWPD) means just that. The term “one full drive written per day” refers to the number of times a drive may be written to its full capacity per day under a certain workload. The system setting, use, and other variables may cause actual results to differ.

*Capacity is defined as follows: a megabyte (MB) is one million bytes, a gigabyte (GB) is one billion bytes, and a terabyte (TB) is one billion billion bytes, according to the Kioxia Corporation. However, a computer’s operating system displays less storage capacity because it uses powers of 2 to define storage units (1GB = 230 bytes = 1,073,741,824 bytes and 1TB = 240 bytes = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes). Storage space (and the types of media files that may be stored) varies by device, operating system, software, media content, and even down to the individual files’ sizes, formats, and settings. Variation in actual formatted capacity is possible.
