E3.S is a brand new kind issue normal for NVMe™ SSDs in Cloud and enterprise knowledge facilities, particularly concentrating on PCIe ® 5.0 and past. The E3.S will contribute to the design and improvement of subsequent technology techniques, comparable to cloud, hyper-converged and general-purpose servers and All Flash Array (AFA) techniques in cloud and enterprise knowledge facilities.

The E3.S specification permits for measurement, energy and capability choices, all with a standard connector. Designed for future PCIe generations that provide larger energy budgets, EDSFF E3.S delivers improved efficiency, cooling and adaptability over different kind components.

Kioxia’s E3.S engineering samples, primarily based on Kioxia’s CM6 Series PCIe 4.0 NVMe 1.4 SSD in a 2.5-inch kind issue, demonstrated approximatery 35% larger efficiency with the identical controller and BiCS FLASH™ 3D TLC flash reminiscence within the EDSFF E3.S kind issue with x4 lanes and 28W (+40%) of energy.

EDSFF E3.S advantages embody:

– Higher density of flash storage for extra environment friendly use of energy, storage footprint and system rack deployments

– Supports PCIe 5.0 and past by way of improved sign integrity

– Better cooling and thermal traits

– Performance and advantages past the two.5-inch kind issue model

– Drive standing could be proven by LED indicators

– Supports x8 PCIe lane configurations
