Industry’s first EDSFF solid state drives designed with PCIe 5.0 technology

KIOXIA Europe has announced the industry’s first line-up of Enterprise and Data Center Standard Form Factor (EDSFF) E3.S SSDs that have ben designed with PCIe 5.0 technology.

The company said that the KIOXIA CD7 E3.S Series was bringing a new era to flash memory used in servers and storage. Building on E3.S development samples, the CD7 E3.S Series increases flash storage density per drive delivering both optimised power efficiency and rack consolidation.

Described as 'breaking free from the design limitations of the 2.5-inch form factor', the EDSFF E3 family has been optimised for the needs of high-performance, highly efficient servers and storage.

EDSFF enables the next generation of SSDs to address future data centre architectures while supporting a variety of new devices and applications. It provides improved airflow and thermals, and signal integrity benefits. Support for higher E3.S power budgets than 2.5-inch form factor SSDs and better signal integrity allows EDSFF to deliver the improved levels of performance that have been promised by PCIe 5.0 technology.

KIOXIA is an active and contributing member of the industry development group of EDSFF solutions and is collaborating with leading server and storage system developers in the development of flash memory, NVMe and PCIe.

“In a time where we require storage media that can easily be adapted while optimising performance or capacity, the new KIOXIA E3.S SSDs, designed with PCIe 5.0 technology and utilising EDSFF, open up new cost saving opportunities for server and storage systems and make efficient use of flash memory chips for SSD storage density”, explained Paul Rowan, Vice President of the SSD Marketing & Engineering at KIOXIA Europe
