Don’t just take our word for it: KIOXIA is proud to announce our participation in the Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) Spaceborne Computer-2 (SBC-2) program, which aims to advance computing with flash storage in space exploration.
KIOXIA SSDs will provide robust flash storage in HPE Edgeline and HPE ProLiant servers used in a test environment to conduct scientific experiments on the International Space Station (ISS). Flash-based SSDs are better suited than traditional hard disk drive storage to withstand the power, performance, and reliability requirements of outer space, as they have no moving parts, are less susceptible to electromagnetic waves, and provide faster performance.
The HPE SBC-2 is the first in-space commercial edge computing and AI-enabled system to run on the ISS, designed to perform various high-performance computing tasks. KIOXIA has provided flash-based SSDs, including KIOXIA RM Series Value SAS and KIOXIA XG Series NVMeTM SSDs, to enable these solutions.
The HPE SBC-2 targets a range of workloads and has already helped advance progress in healthcare, image processing, natural disaster recovery, 3D printing, 5G, AI, and more.
