New solutions in data storage


Earlier we talked about SSD and HDD.  

You can read it here! 

Today we will talk about new SSD solutions that were introduced not so long ago.  


This company has introduced new SSD series - EP400 and EP310. These types of data storage are presented for ARM servers, mobile platforms, industrial equipment. The EP400 has a 345-pin BGA version and uses PCIe 4.0 x2, which is why the speed of reading information reaches 3500 MB/s, the write speed is 3300 MB/s. The capacity of these devices will be from 256 GB to 1 TB, and this miracle will be able to work in the temperature range from -25 to +85 Celsius.


In turn, the EP310 came out less attractive because of its characteristics, but price / quality still play an important role. And so the EP310 received 291 BGA pins and a PCI e 3.0 x2 interface. The read speed dropped to 1600 MB/s and the write speed dropped to 1300 MB/s. The capacity will be from 128 GB to 1 TB, and it will work at temperatures from -10 to +70 degrees Celsius.


With regards to Biwin, there is no more news at the moment, so let's move on to another company, namely SMART Modular Technologies. 

SMART Modular Technologies

DC4800 server SSDs were released in U.2 and E1.S formats with a capacity of up to 7.68 TB. They are designed for data centers, peripheral computing systems, etc. These new items will be available in the U.2 and E1.S versions. Data exchange is carried out via PCIe 4.0 x2 and the capacity will be as follows 



7.68 TB 

The speed of reading reaches 7100 MB /s, and writing 4600 MB / s. 

It talks about compliance with the OCP 1.0 standard, support for TCG Opal 2.0 and the possibility of data encryption using the AES algorithm with a 256-bit key. 


According to these two news reports, we can conclude that in the future we will have even more opportunities to host data centers in the world, and the speed of work of companies that use these SSDs will increase significantly.
