Kioxia’s lineup of KIOXIA CM6 and CD6 Series PCIe 4.0 NVM Express (NVMe) enterprise and data center solid state drives (SSDs) have gained compatibility approval with Supermicro’s PCIe 4.0-based server and storage platforms. This includes a wide range of enterprise-ready rackmount systems encompassing Ultra, WIO, BigTwin, FatTwin, SuperBlade, 1U/2U NVMe all flash arrays, GPU accelerated systems and SuperWorkstations.
According to Kioxia, users are moving to NVMe SSDs to address the demands of enterprise performance requirements, cloud-based data center architectures, and performance-centric and latency-sensitive applications. At the center of this movement is heightened demand for NVMe-based storage where PCIe 4.0 is the latest performance upgrade. Kioxia’s CM6 and CD6 Series SSDs are delivering these enhanced capabilities.
While NVMe SSDs are penetrating server platforms at an increased pace, interoperability between the two cannot be taken for granted, says Kioxia. The company is collaborating with suppliers like Supermicro to ensure proper operation and full functionality.
Kioxia is a world leader in memory solutions, dedicated to the development, production and sale of flash memory and solid-state drives (SSDs). In April 2017, its predecessor Toshiba Memory was spun off from Toshiba Corporation, the company that invented NAND flash memory in 1987.
