This IBM® Redbooks® Product Guide describes the IBM 120 GB, 240 GB, 480 GB, and 800 GB solid-state drives (SSDs), which are next-generation Enterprise Value SSDs for IBM System x® that are engineered for greater performance and endurance in a cost-effective design, and to support a broader set of workloads. These SSDs, shown in the following figure, are available as 2.5-inch form factor drives with both simple-swap (SS) and hot-swap (HS) options, as well as 3.5-inch hot-swap and 1.8-inch drives.
Did you know
The next-generation IBM Enterprise Value SSDs offer endurance of up to 2.4 DWPD for five years that is a substantial increase for Enterprise Value class SSDs and positions these drives to support larger data center workloads. Overall, these SSDs provide outstanding IOPS/watt and cost/IOPS for enterprise solutions and are an excellent choice for read-intensive and up to 70%/30% mixed read/write-intensive applications, such as web serving, hyperscale cloud, content delivery, caching, databases, and analytics.
Unlike client drives, these solid-state drives for IBM System x are equipped with a robust suite of enterprise features, including Self-monitoring, analysis, and reporting technology (SMART) attributes and hot-plug support. They also use enterprise data path protection to verify data to and from NAND at every possible location and protect the integrity of the data. The NAND flash in these SSDs is screened and then tested specifically for enterprise customer use.
Providing that additional peace of mind, IBM Enterprise Value MLC SSDs are covered under IBM warranty. These drives carry a 1-year limited warranty, or when installed in a supported IBM server, these drives assume your system's base warranty.
