Keeping Current With NVMe SSDs

The NVME SSD SpeedPro M.2 SSD is a portable solid state drive (SSD) with maximum performance and storage capacities that are ideal for most personal computers today. It is the world’s fastest SSD currently available in portable devices. It features speeds of up to 3200 RPM for incredible read and write speeds, and a sequential reading/writing speeds of up to 8x faster than the fastest SATA SSDs. NVME Ssd comes standard in dual mode – for use in both SSD and non-SSD forms. It is the perfect partner for NVME M.2 and NVME QTS based PCs for extreme performance and storage needs.

The dual mode comes standard in two forms – with the firmware code “AEDB” and without the firmware code. With the AEDB firmware, it supports faster write speeds up to 4GB per second. While the non-AEDB firmware version supports faster write speeds up to 6GB per second. This translates to huge performance gains especially in the enterprise setting where high capacity, high throughput and random access data are crucial to corporate operations. The fastest NVME SSD can write at a rate of over 3200 RPM and the highest level of endurance is two million cycles.


To put the performance in context, an ordinary PC would be able to read or write at the same rate as the fastest SATA SSD such as the Samsung SMARTpod 250GB. If one compares the performance between the two, one would realize that the PC is slower when comparing performance in read and write speeds. However, in the enterprise setting, it may be more important to look at the throughput i.e. the ratio of read speeds to write speeds.


The NVMe SSD has achieved this remarkable performance by leveraging several technologies such as the PC engine for the server and the storage area network which are tuned to the needs of the enterprise. NVMe performs much better than the SATA SSD in performance tests such as the random access and write tests. The latest NVMe drives are designed to ensure optimum performance through the full range of enterprise applications. NVMe has lower power consumption. With its compact form factor and without the need for a separate driver, the interface between the host operating system and the SSD is simple and straightforward, which eliminates the installation process of the proprietary drivers.


For enterprise storage, the innovative NVMe interface simplifies deployment, makes access easier for end-users and lowers costs. In addition, it enables easy migration from the desktop PCs to laptops. It offers the performance benefits of a good SATA SSD at a lower cost, while providing greater flexibility for application and system integration. Through the enterprise software interface, applications can be developed for different operating systems, platforms and storage levels more easily. Through these enhanced capabilities, the new NVMe SSDs have made it easier for end-users to take advantage of the best of both benchmarks – performance and capacity.


The new standard in enterprise IT environment is striving towards better and more efficient use of resources. This is why the new NVMe SSDs with their multi-tasking abilities is attracting more enterprise users. And with the help of a great tool such as SanDisk’s Speedometer, the end users can easily measure the performance of the SSD and can make the right decision on the type of drive that would serve best for their data storage requirements.


There are times when the end user is faced with situations where data is not accessed as quickly as expected. This happens when the application is written in a hurry or when the data is retrieved in an orderly fashion. When the write/read speeds of the disk are compared, it often times shows that the application has written or read a huge amount of data in a very short time. In such situations, the usual techniques used to accelerate the performance of the drive are either not effective or the application is not running in a manner that can utilize all the available resources.


That is why there is a need for faster and better read speeds. Now, thanks to the new technology provided by SanDisk, such capabilities are now readily available for enterprise users. With the help of SanDisk’s Speedometer, they can easily measure the actual speed of the disk and can find out the factors that affect its performance. Through this, they can avoid making wrong decisions and can improve their IT infrastructure. With the help of the new NVMe SSDs, enterprise IT departments can now make the most of the resources that they have and can save a lot of money and energy.
