KUALA LUMPUR: Kioxia Corporation is the first company to bring 24G SAS to server and storage applications with the introduction of its sixth-generation enterprise SAS SSD family.

First demonstrated at Flash Memory Summit 2019, Kioxia’s new PM6 series of enterprise SAS SSDs is built on 24G SAS technology, enabled by a PCIe® 4.0 ecosystem.

Designed for modern IT infrastructures, 24G SAS doubles the data throughput of its predecessor, while implementing new features and enhancements to reach new application performance levels.

 An established leader in developing SAS SSDs, Kioxia delivers new levels of SAS SSD sequential read performance and is the only SSD supplier to offer failure recovery in case 2 dies fail at the same time.

According to a statement, the PM6 series builds upon this history of best-in-class performance and reliability over six generations of SAS drives.

Featuring Kioxia’s 96-layer BiCS FLASH™ 3D TLC flash memory, the PM6 series delivers industry-leading SAS SSD sequential read performance of up to 4,300MB/s (4,101MiB/s), more than two times improvement over the previous generation.

Kioxia’s new drives are available in capacities up to 30.72TB, making it the industry’s highest capacity 2.5-inch SAS SSD. More details – Bernama
