RANCHO CORDOVA, CALIF.--(Business Wire / Korea Newswire)--Solidigm, a leading global provider of innovative NAND flash memory solutions, is proud to announce another industry-first quad-level cell (QLC) solid-state storage drive (SSD) for the data center — the Solidigm™ D5-P5336. Offered in capacities from 7.68TB to 61.44TB, the Solidigm D5-P5336 makes it possible to store up to 6X more data in the same space compared to an all hard disk drive (HDD) array.[1]

“Modern workloads like AI and capabilities like 5G are rapidly reshaping the storage landscape,” said Greg Matson, VP of Strategic Planning and Marketing at Solidigm. “Businesses need storage in more places that is inexpensive, able to store massive data sets efficiently and access the data at speed. The D5-P5336 delivers on all three -- value, density and performance. With QLC, the economics are compelling -- imagine storing 6X more data than HDDs and 2X more data than TLC SSDs, all in the same space at TLC speed.”

Built to handle massive amounts of data from the core to the edge, the read performance of the Solidigm D5-P5336 exceeds some of the latest cost-optimized triple-level cell (TLC) SSDs on the market today.[2] Artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), content delivery networks, scale-out network attached storage (NAS), and object storage are all read-intensive workloads that continue to drive enormous volumes of data, regardless of where they reside.

Massive scalability and improved TCO across a range of configurations

With its high capacity enabling smaller storage footprints, Solidigm’s D5-P5336 enables a lower total cost of ownership and more sustainable infrastructure than all-TLC arrays, SAS HDD arrays, or hybrid arrays. Consider the following, based on a 100PB object storage solution deployment:

“For years there has been debate about endurance and reliability of SSDs, QLC in particular, but Solidigm might have ended that debate with the D5-P5336,” noted Avery Pham, VP Operations, VAST Data. “Any number of applications will see notable benefits from these drives from AI and machine learning to object storage.”

“Today, it is clear that the primary constraint for edge workloads is the limitation of bandwidth rather than latency,” said Doug Emby, VP of Sales and Business Development at Cheetah RAID Storage. “Solidigm’s D5-P5336 QLC SSDs offer an impressive combination of capacity, performance, and reliability as a solution to overcome this challenge. The seamless integration of these Solidigm QLC SSDs with Cheetah's high-performance servers makes them highly suitable for the efficient deployment of edge solutions.”

The D5-P5336 is shipping now in E1.L form factor with up to 30.72TB, with subsequent availability extending to 61.44TB in both U.2 and E1.L later this year. In the first half of 2024, Solidigm will be shipping E3.S form factor with up to 30.72TB.
