Energy-efficient DRAM-less NVMe SSDs provide storage and fast access

For high performance data storage, Greenliant offers its DRAM-less NVMe M.2 2280 ArmourDrive solid state drive (SSD) modules in commercial and industrial temperatures.

The SSDs modules are intended for customers requiring data storage with fast access speeds, while using less power than other PCIe-interface SSDs, says Greenliant. The 88 PX Series NVMe M.2 2280 ArmourDrive SSDs use industrial 3bit per cell (TLC) 3D NAND flash memory and support a broad range of capacities from 128Gbyte to 2Tbyte.

Forward Insights predicts that the NVMe PCIe SSD market will grow from its 2019 value of $10.5 billion to $29.2 billion in 2024. To address this demand and diverse customer requirements, Greenliant has expanded its NVMe M.2 ArmourDrive portfolio to offer 2280 form factor SSDs both with and without on-board DRAM. The DRAM-less NVMe M.2 2280 ArmourDrive products support the PCIe Gen3x4 interface and can reach up to 2,500/2,100 Mbits per second sequential read/write performance.

The DRAM-less NVMe M.2 2280 ArmourDrive SSDs are available in commercial (0 to +70 degrees C) or industrial (-40 to +85 degrees C) versions and are reliable with low latency for a variety of applications, including industrial automation, cloud computing, security, networking, broadcasting and transportation.

The 88 PX Series DRAM-less NVMe M.2 2280 ArmourDrive SSDs are energy-efficient, with active power consumption as low as 3,150mW and 2mW in a low-power idle mode. They have high data integrity with no data-at-rest corruption during power loss events, says Greenliant. The host memory buffer (HMB) support improves input/output operations per second (IOPS) and reduces latency, explains Greenliant. They also support TCG OPAL 2.0 (I-temp) or Pyrite (C-temp) for data security.

Greenliant is sampling commercial temperature DRAM-less NVMe M.2 2280 SSDs to customers now and expects to start shipping in volume production in December. Greenliant plans to start sampling industrial temperature DRAM-less NVMe M.2 2280 SSDs in December with volume production expected in February 2021.
