The HPE XP7 Flash Module Device is a FMD unique to XP7. It combines MLC NAND flash and a SAS interface with a custom ASIC controller for superior flash performance. The FMD form factor is larger than traditional SSD and therefore is available in capacities of 1.7 TB, 3.5 TB, 7 TB and 14 TB. They are configurable in a variety of RAID types in the same fashion as other drives and is compatible with all XP7 firmware and software features.
The XP7 Flash Module Device supports wear levelling. In a flash memory each write or erase cycle stresses the cell which in turn causes deterioration of the cell over time. This might cause an imbalance in the cell activity which creates an irregular distribution of these unstable cells thereby impacting the life of flash.
The flash controller monitors the number of writes, erasures and refreshes to eliminate these imbalances by balancing the rate of deterioration in the flash memory cells. This helps in extending the useful lifetime of flash.
Do your servers need high-performance enterprise hard drives for both your mission-critical and I/O-intensive applications?
HPE Server Enterprise Hard Drives offer the highest level of performance and reliability for your most demanding application workloads. Enterprise drives help you improve server response times, power more transactions per second, and accelerate data transfer (I/O) speeds. HPE Server Enterprise Hard Drives are backed by over 3.35 million hours of the industry’s most rigorous testing and qualification program , ensuring customers' reliable, rugged drives. Prevent unauthorized access to your data with HPE Digitally Signed Firmware. It provides the security and assurance that drive firmware comes from a trusted source and protects against malicious attacks. The self-describing icons on the HPE Smart Carrier takes the guesswork out of a drive’s status, and a “do not remove” button prevents data loss from human error.
Do you need to increase performance at 10K HDD price points for performance-sensitive and very read optimized workloads?
