Memblaze Technology Co., Ltd. announced the PBlaze6 6530 series PCIe 4.0 enterprise SSD oriented towards the mainstream market after releasing the first PCIe 4.0 PBlaze6 6920 ultimate SSD series in April.
Based on the company’s self-developed Unified Framework Platform (MUFP), the PBlaze6 6530 series supports NVMe 1.4 specs and adopts the latest 176-layer enterprise 3D eTLC NAND flash memory. Compared with its predecessor, tit features higher endurance, improved performance, with random read reaching up to 1,100,000IO/s. It supports more enterprise functions and security features, meeting the requirements of hyperscale users in Internet, cloud computing, finance and telecommunications etc.
Better performance accelerates applications
PBlaze6 6530 series enterprise SSD supports PCIe 4.0 x 4 interfaces and enjoys superior R/W bandwidth. With latest 176-layer enterprise 3D eTLC NAND flash memory and MemSpeed 4.0 technology, it can provide 4K random read performance up to 1,180,000 IO/s, 4K random write performance exceeding 425,000 IO/s, and sequential R/W bandwidth reaching 6.8GB/s and 4.8GB/s, respectively. Therefore, it can deliver better performance for enterprise users, supporting substantial acceleration in business applications.
Lower latency ensures user experience and consistency
On the basis of deep optimization of IO processing logic, the new series shortens command response and reduced the overall write latency to 10μs by optimizing the write I/O path. Meanwhile, the read latency has also been improved, reduced to 72μs. In addition, the optimization of the scheduling mechanism ensures the QoS and consistent performance, thereby making the latency-sensitive applications running smoothly.
Low power and flexible power configuration help meet different business demands
The series adopts low-power hardware design, and optimizes data path and algorithms, boosting the performance delivered per watt of power. With an energy efficiency 172% higher than that of its predecessor, this series enjoys better performance and lower power consumption. The series features a 11W typical write power consumption and offers dynamic power adjustments from 6W to 14W by per 1W, so as to accommodate users’ different power configuration demands.
Long write endurance ensures long-term and stable operation of applications
By adopting the highest grade of eTLC NAND, PBlaze6 6530 series enables newly-upgraded MemSpeed4.0 technology set, and optimizes write path and algorithm, achieving long write endurance. This series offers 3 capacity sizes, including 1.92, 3.84 and 7.68TB. As per JESD219 standard, its write endurance can be up to 1.5DWPD (5-years), 50% higher than that of the predecessor and suitable for mainstream workloads. These SSD offers 3 capacity sizes, including 1.6, 3.2 and 6.4TB, and its endurance can be up to 3.3DWPD (five years), suitable for businesses with higher write endurance needs. Both models provide 2.5-inch U.2 and half-height half-length (HHHL AIC) specs in all the capacity sizes.
Richer enterprise features and reliable security performance
PBlaze6 6530 series enterprise SSD supports NVMe 1.4 specs and provides richer enterprise features, such as persistent event log, NVMe-MI, telemetry, sanitize, TCG Opal 2.0, with a view to improve the reliability, manageability and security. Meanwhile, it also has a host of functions in which enterprises users are interested, such as full data path protection, NVMe end-to-end data protection, variable sector size management, weighted round robin (WRR), AES data encryption, device self-test and online firmware updating.
“I would like to offer congratulations to Memblaze on its release of the second PCIe 4.0 SSD. On the basis of maintaining consistent performance and stability, this new product also deeply fortifies rich enterprise features. Enhanced TCG and end-to-end data protection have brought sight to the further consideration of China SSD manufacturers about user data security. H3C will continue to work with Memablze to deliver secure, rapid and user-friendly applications and services to users,” said Runan XU, GM, storage products department, H3C Technologies Co., Ltd.
