Lite-ON debuts its new EP1 Series M.2 PCIe Gen 2x4 solid-state drive at Dell World 2014 in Austin, Texas. Lite-ON's EP1 Series drives are compact, power-efficient solid state solutions that fit directly in a server's PCIe bus to increase server application performance while delivering fast access to data without burdening host CPU and memory resources.
The EP1 drives deliver a 4KB random read and write performance of up to 150,000 and 44,000 IOPS, respectively. In addition, their latencies are just 40/30 µs.
EP1 drives also feature power loss protection, multiple layers of data protection, and customized firmware.
Lite-ON will also be exhibiting its full range of server solutions, which include the N9S read-intensive SATA SSD, the NAS mixed-use SATA SSD, and an M.2 PCIe SSD configured for mixed use environments.
All Lite-ON drives have a mean time between failures (MBTF) of 2 million hours and an endurance rating of up to 1 drive write per day for 5 years.
Dell World will run November 4-6, 2014.
