This cutting-edge SSD is finely tuned for a spectrum of workloads, spanning databases, cloud computing, media streaming, and artificial intelligence (AI). It merges top-tier performance metrics with robust reliability, featuring an expanded NVMe feature suite, including security functions for demanding cloud applications.

Compared to existing mainstream data centre SSDs, which are prone to significant performance degradation, D1200 delivers the highest sustained system performance over its lifetime. In addition, features including Full Data Path Protection, NVMe-MI for out-of-band-management and Secure Boot are available to protect critical data and guarantee system security. Swissbit’s D1200 SSD is immediately available with storage capacities of 7.68 TB and 15.4 TB.

“Our new D1200 SSD offers superior and, most importantly, consistently high system performance that can handle even the most demanding workloads, making performance degradation a thing of the past,” said Roger Griesemer, General Manager Memory Solutions at Swissbit.

“In this way, providers and data centre operators can lower the cost of maintenance or SSD replacement while enabling their customers to achieve consistently high service levels. Latest NAND technology and optimised hardware design also help reduce power consumption and thus lower energy costs,” added Griesemer.

The U.3 SSD is based on enterprise-grade 3D-TLC-NAND (eTLC), is backwards compatible with U.2, and has both a 4-lane PCIe and NVMe 1.4 interface. As a result, it achieves bandwidths of up to 6,900 MB/s for sequential reads and 7,000 MB/s for sequential writes.

Up to 1.6 million IOPS for reads and 900,000 IOPS for writes are possible with Random Access. With support for up to 128 namespaces, D1200 provides high flexibility and efficiency for virtualizing cloud applications and managing data in data centres. Its endurance values are at least 1.5 DWPD (Drive Writes Per Day), when measured against a standardised workload (JEDEC Enterprise Workload) over a 5-year period.

The SSD also includes many more features that enhance data security even further. These include Full Data Path Protection, NVMe-MI for out-of-band-management, telemetry, Persistent Event Log and AES-data-encryption. By verifying firmware integrity and encryption before loading, Secure Boot adds an additional layer of security.
