While it’s abundantly clear that flash-storage adoption in data centers is rapidly growing, the currently predominant form factors - 2.5-inch and M.2 - are limiting its future use. New Enterprise and Datacenter Standard Form Factor (EDSFF) E1.S drives are set to change this dynamic by overcoming these limitations and enabling next-gen data centers.
E1.S form factors are designed specifically for flash memory-based storage. They provide fast data input/output operations per second (IOPS) and low-latency performance when designed to the PCIe® interface and NVMe™ protocol.
In a recent piece for Electronic Design, our Maulik Sompura writes about how EDSFF E1.S SSDs can be used to improve data center flash storage performance - and gives five key tips on optimizing their use.
The article explains each tip in detail and provides advice on how to implement them effectively. By following these tips, data center managers can help ensure that their EDSFF E1.S SSDs are working optimally for them and providing the best possible return for their data center applications.
