The IBM 2.4TB MLC Duo High IOPS Adapter for the IBM System x, IBM BladeCenter, and IBM Flex System is a second-generation adapter with many of the benefits of standard storage in addition to enterprise-class high performance of more than 900,000 sustained input/output operations per second (IOPS). This adapter is designed primarily for performance-hungry enterprise servers and computing appliances while providing the added benefits of lower power and cooling costs, low management impact, and smaller storage footprints.
It uses flash memory as its storage medium, contains no moving parts, and does not have the issues associated with vibration, noise, and mechanical failure. The adapters is built as a block device on a PCIe bus with advanced wear-leveling, advanced ECC, and chip-level redundancy, providing exceptional reliability and efficiency. Based on the standard PCIe architecture coupled with silicon-based NAND clustering storage technology, the High IOPS MLC Adapter is optimized for System x rack servers and can be deployed in blades through the PCIe expansion units. This scalable design comes with cost-effective Multi-Level Cell (MLC) technology in standard PCIe form factors.
