Compatibility with Cisco ASR 9000 Routers

The A9K-SAM-2TB Cisco SSD Module is specifically designed for use with Cisco ASR 9000 Series routers, which are high-performance routers used in service provider and enterprise networks. This SSD module is compatible with the ASR 9000 Series chassis and line cards, and can be used to expand the router's storage capacity and improve performance.

The A9K-SAM-2TB module uses a PCI Express interface to connect to the router, and can be installed in any available PCI Express slot. It provides 2TB of solid-state storage capacity, which can be used for a variety of applications, including caching, logging, and data storage.

The ASR 9000 Series routers are designed for high-speed data networks, with support for multiple terabits of capacity and advanced features such as MPLS, Segment Routing, and Network Virtualization. The addition of the A9K-SAM-2TB module can help improve the performance of these routers, particularly in applications that require fast data access or high levels of storage capacity.

Data Protection and Reliability Features

The A9K-SAM-2TB Cisco SSD Module offers a range of data protection and reliability features, including:

  • Power-loss protection: The module is designed to protect against data loss in the event of a power failure or other unexpected shutdown. It uses super-capacitors to provide backup power, which enables it to complete write operations and ensure data integrity.
  • Wear leveling: The module uses a wear-leveling algorithm to distribute writes evenly across the drive, which helps to extend its lifespan and maintain performance over time.
  • Temperature monitoring: The module includes temperature sensors that monitor the drive's operating temperature and can alert system administrators if the temperature exceeds a certain threshold.
  • Self-monitoring, analysis, and reporting technology (SMART): The module supports SMART, which allows it to monitor its own health and performance and report any potential issues.
  • Error correction: The module uses error-correcting code (ECC) to detect and correct errors in the data, which helps to ensure data integrity.
  • Dynamic thermal throttling: The module includes dynamic thermal throttling, which adjusts the performance of the drive to maintain optimal operating temperature and prevent overheating.

Features and Functionality of the A9K-SAM-2TB Cisco SSD Module

The A9K-SAM-2TB Cisco SSD Module is a high-performance storage solution that offers a range of features and functionality, including:

  • Large capacity: The module has a capacity of 2 terabytes (TB), which provides ample storage space for high-performance networking systems.
  • High performance: The module uses PCI Express (PCIe) technology to deliver fast read and write speeds, which enables it to support high-bandwidth applications and services.
  • Low latency: The module's low latency helps to ensure fast response times and minimize delays in data transmission.
  • Hot-swappable: The module is hot-swappable, which means it can be replaced without powering down the system, minimizing downtime and service interruptions.
  • Redundancy: The module supports RAID 1 and RAID 0+1 redundancy configurations, which help to ensure data availability in the event of a drive failure.
  • Simplified management: The module is managed through Cisco IOS XR software, which provides a simplified interface for monitoring and managing storage resources.
  • Flexibility: The module can be used in a variety of networking environments, including service provider, enterprise, and cloud-based networks.
  • Energy efficiency: The module is designed to consume less power than traditional spinning hard drives, which helps to reduce energy costs and lower overall power consumption.
  • Compatibility: The module is specifically designed for use with Cisco ASR 9000 Series routers, ensuring compatibility and easy integration with existing network infrastructure.
