Industrial grade Gen3 storage supports edge computing

Innodisk has announced industrial-grade PCIe Gen3 storage to industrial automation IoT (AIoT) and edge computing with high-speed M.2 solid state drive (SSD).

The M.2 NVMe PCIe Gen3×2 3ME2 MLC SSD is designed to meet demand for higher data transfer speeds. Innodisk offers the M.2 NVMe PCIe Gen3×2 3ME2 MLC SSD, available in different heatsink-less form factors that all withstand temperatures ranging from -40 to +85 degree C, as well as speeds up to three times faster than the average SATA device, says Innodisk.

AIoT markets are characterised by a need for compactness to save space, data integrity and robustness to handle the various rough conditions of the device locations. Tight spaces can also create high temperatures and heat dissipation issues.

According to the company, the PCIe SSD 3ME2 brings out easier heat dissipation by lowering power consumption by 50 per cent, compared to other modules of similar specifications. The SSD comes in both 2280 and 2242 form factors, and through its industrial-oriented design, data integrity is easily handled through LDPC error correction and end-to-end data path protection (ETEP).

The SSD uses pure MLC flash with no SLC cache to avoid the inevitable speed drop as the cache fills up. Avoiding this problem altogether, the original MLC flash will continue to deliver stable and high speeds over the course of its lifetime.

The high-speed PCIe SSD 3ME2 is available in high-capacity selections. Innodisk’s cloud management platform, iCAP, offers customisable functions and can be integrated into a huge number of multi-layered edge computing devices such as sensors, gateway, and hubs.
