Targeting hyper-scale data centres

Chinese startup Memblaze launched its next generation of PCIe NVMe SSD products, PBlaze 5 700 and 900 series, for hyper-scale data centre deployment and enterprise mission critical set-ups.

PBlaze5 uses 3D Enterprise-level TLC NAND and supports NVMe 1.2a, with SSD user capacities up to 11TB.

PBlaze5 comes in 2.5-inch U.2 and HHHL add-in card form factors and provides high performance 6GB/s read bandwidth (128KB) and >1M IOPS random read (4KB), with typical read write latency of 90/15ms. PBlaze5 U.2 interface is hot plugable, hot removable and hot swappable, effectively reducing data centre operation complexity.

With the high capacity-price ratio and high cost performance, PBlaze5 700 Series greatly reduces the number of required nodes, greatly reducing the overall cluster power consumption, and cost. PBlaze5 700 Series is ideal for database, cloud computing, software-defined storage, search engine, and big data application workloads, enabling enterprise customers to quickly build next-generation high-performance green data centers.

PBlaze5 900 Series is designed for mission critical enterprise applications, with enterprise-level JEDEC load life up to 3 DWPD for 5 years. PBlaze5 900 Series supports NVMe end-to-end data protection standard, with SBER < 1E-23, which helps prevent data conflicts and other issues caused by silent bit errors.

PBlaze5 900 uses dual port U.2 interface design, with multi-host common access to the device via PCIe Switch. This helps to mitigate the risk of interruption caused by single-host downtime, improving system availability. In addition, PBlaze5 900 also has signature firmware download, data security and encryption protection technologies, ensuring high SSD reliability, availability, and data security.
