IBM's To Use MLC NAND Flash in External Storage Systems


STEC today announced the integration of its MLC-based ZeusIOPS SSDs into IBM's high-end DS8800 and DS8700 as well as mid-range IBM Storwize V7000 storage systems.

This signals a new milestone in the expansion of MLC usage within the Enterprise storage market. ZeusIOPS MLC SSDs are available with a 6Gb Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) or 4Gb Fibre Channel (FC) interface.

MLC flash is a solid state technology traditionally used in consumer devices because it is more affordable than single level cell (SLC) flash. MLC-based drives are now an increasingly important element within enterprise storage systems given the growing need for cost-effective high-performance storage within these systems.

STEC's high-end Enterprise SSDs feature the company's proprietary CellCare and Secure Array of Flash Element (S.A.F.E.) technologies.

STEC's MLC-based SSDs with CellCare technology utilize adaptive Flash access, signal processing, data management algorithms and error correcting codes (ECC) to improve the endurance of MLC Flash components. These drives, available in capacities up to 800 GB, are able to handle intensive workloads of up to 10 writes per day for over five years without limiting performance, a key consideration for Enterprise environments. In addition, S.A.F.E. technology eliminates virtually all failures associated with MLC Flash, reduces component-level failures and delivers the data reliability required by Enterprise storage applications. These key technologies are integral to extending the longevity of MLC media under increasingly demanding Enterprise workloads.

The IBM Storwize V7000 system was introduced in October 2010 to help IBM's clients simplify administrative tasks such as set up and management. The new system allows room for clients' future growth and includes a highly-integrated set of software for storage efficiency that frees clients from buying piece-parts or making trade-offs between price and capability. The Storwize V7000 is equipped to take advantage of the IO horsepower of STEC's ZeusIOPS SSDs.

The IBM System Storage DS8800 is the most advanced model in IBM's high-end disk portfolio with hardware that offers faster performance and a significant reduction in floor space and energy requirements. The System Storage DS8700 is another offering in IBM's lineup of high-end disk systems, offering high reliability.

The IBM DS8800, DS8700 and Storwize V7000 are all equipped to optimize the use of SSDs with IBM's System Storage Easy Tier feature, which uses ongoing performance monitoring to move only the most active data to SSDs.
