Shannon Direct-IOTM PCIe Flash presents host systems as a simple block-device, serving up a new memory tier that sits on the PCIe bus directly connected to the CPU.
This new memory tier is nearly as fast as DRAM with storage capacity on par with hard disks.
Ultra-scale parallel multi-core processor flash controller, minimizes the intermediate processes and resource confliction, while achieves industry-leading low access latency (68µs Random Read/ 10µs Random Write)
Advanced NAND signal processing and inter-chip flash RAID technology, guarding data with multi layers of protection; end-to-end data protection; always-on copy-on-write for data updates. MTBF > 2 million hours)
With no DRAM on board, or DRAM-less design, minimum amount of SRAM buffered-data are automatically flushed to flash media in case of sudden power-loss; guarantees data integrity without relying on battery or super-capacitor.
Adaptive signal processing technology for minimum flash wear; dynamic tracking and classification for host data (hot/cold), minimizes write amplification and extends system durability; endurance up to 5DWPD for 3 years.
Support 1x/1y nm NAND flash and upcoming 3D NAND; excellent scalability with capacity as high as 2.4TB (3.3TB raw) at a single half-height and half-length add-in card form-factor.
Standard half-length PCIe add-in form-factor;less than 25W peak power envelop, compatible with all standard rack server. Simple block-device accelerates mission-critical applications without any changes to existing software.
