The SP2800 PCIe NVMe SSD product family has been introduced as part of SMART’s DuraFlash product portfolio. The launch follows the MDC7000 Enterprise and Data Center SSD Form Factor (EDSFF) product launched last month. SMART developed both families of products to meet a growing demand for Flash storage in networking and telecommunication infrastructure, data center, edge computing and enterprise server markets.
The SP2800 SSD is a secure, Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) with TCG OPAL 2.0 and AES 256 encryption standards for access control and data security. The SSD is available in M.2 2280, M.2 22110 and U.2 form factors. It is a 3D NAND-based SSD product that supports the industry standard PCIe Gen3 x4 interface and complies with the NVMe 1.3 protocol standard. SP2800 products are available in high endurance product versions with one drive write per day (DWPD) plus SMART’s proprietary SafeDATA power loss data protection standard. Versions with standard endurance are also available.
“These new SP2800 PCIe NVMe products are well suited to be used as the primary Flash storage device for system boot, data logging and application code storage in high-performance servers,” said SMART Modular Flash product director, Victor Tsai. “SMART Modular has developed a comprehensive PCIe NVMe product portfolio under the DuraFlash brand that meets today’s market demands, and addresses the rapid adoption of PCIe NVMe Flash storage in applications that traditionally utilize SATA and other legacy Flash products.”
The capacity of the SP2800 drive ranges from 240GB to 2TB. Other features include:
• Form factors: M.2 2280 (22mm x 80mm), M.2 22110 (22mm x 110mm) and 2.5” U.2
