This drive utilizes the NVMe protocol, which is a high-performance interface designed for use with solid state drives. It connects to the system via the PCI-E 4.0 bus, which provides a higher bandwidth and lower latency than PCI-E 3.0.

The "read intensive" label means that this drive is optimized for read-heavy workloads, such as data warehousing, business intelligence, and read-intensive application workloads. It also means that the drive may not be ideal for write-heavy workloads.

This drive also offers high sequential read and write performance and low latency for use in a variety of enterprise-class applications. It has a storage capacity of 7.68TB, providing ample storage for large-scale data and file workloads.

The drive uses TLC (Triple-Level Cell) NAND flash memory, which is a type of flash memory that stores three bits of data per cell. This can help to reduce the cost of the drive compared to drives that use more expensive MLC (Multi-Level Cell) or SLC (Single-Level Cell) flash memory. However, TLC NAND has a shorter lifespan and lower performance compare to MLC or SLC.

It is a internal drive, and it would need to be installed inside the server. This drive is likely intended for use in enterprise-class servers, storage systems, and other high-performance computing applications.

Please keep in mind that, since the drive is not a consumer-grade device, it may require specialized knowledge and expertise to install and configure it properly in a system. Additionally, ensure that the system supports PCI-E 4.0 interface and the use of TLC NAND doesn't affect the system's expected performance or lifespan.

The drive uses the PCI-E 4.0 interface, which provides faster data transfer speeds than previous versions of PCI-E. This allows for faster read and write speeds when compared to SATA-based SSDs. Additionally, NVMe is a faster interface than AHCI, and the combination of NVMe and PCI-E 4.0 can provide even faster speeds.

The drive is built with TLC (triple-level cell) NAND flash memory. TLC NAND is less expensive than other types of NAND flash memory, but it also has lower endurance and a higher failure rate. This type of drive is typically not recommended for write-intensive applications such as databases and virtual machines, but still suitable for read-intensive workloads like storage and virtual desktop infrastructures.

Dell generally has a good reputation for providing reliable and high-performance products. It is worth to check the warranty of the drive, and also to review your workloads and the requirements before purchasing, to make sure this specific drive will be a good fit for your use case.

When it comes to computing, priorities are placed on storage and performance. The hard drive is often viewed as a major storage device. However, there is alternative hardware that can do a perfect job. People now use Solid State Drives as the main storage device for a wide range of technological needs.

An SSD is a nonvolatile storage media that stores data on solid-state flash memory. It emulates the hard disk drive by enhancing servers' capabilities and performance, desktop computers, and other devices. Users view them as the best option for responsiveness, increased disk space, and better performance.

SSD VS HDD

Solid State Drives and hard disk drives are somewhat similar in their physical specification. However, they store data in different ways. HDD stores data magnetically via spinning disk platters. It has an actuator arm with transducers that read and write data on the platter.

On the other hand, an SSD stores data in integrated circuits. It has no moving parts and does not require users to wait for platter movement. They are much smaller and more flexible than hard disk drive - HDDs. Having no physical moving parts and using electrical circuits makes solid state drives faster than their hard drive counterparts.

Their faster speed makes them more useful when carrying out storage-intensive tasks. Many SSDs also come with PCIe interfaces, which makes them faster than HDDs with SATA interfaces. Also, SSDs are generally more reliable than HDDs. This is because they have no moving parts, and vibration or friction does not affect them.

Data access with SSDs is faster, so they require less power. This results in longer battery life for servers and computers. HDDs, on the other hand, require more power because of their moving disk platters.

How Do Solid State Drives Work?

Solid State Drives read and write data on interconnected flash memory chips. They come with floating gate transistors (FGRs) that help them hold electrical charges. With the FGRs, SSDs retain information even when power is turned off.

The NAND flash memory stores the data of the SSD. They make use of four NAND cell technologies – single, multi, triple, and Quad-level cells. Single-level cells (SLC) hold one bit of data at a time.

Multi-level cells (MLC) can hold two bits of data per cell. They have more storage space than SLC. Triple-level cells (TLC) hold three bits of data per cell, offering more capacity than the SLC and MLC. The Quad-level cells (QLC) stores four bits of data, giving migrating electrons the most significant effect.

Types of SSDs

The types of solid state drives depend on the way they are used. Some of these devices are installed within the system hardware, while others are connected externally through ports. The common interfaces for SSD connection are:

  • PCIe and NVMe

Users make use of PCI Express (PCIe) to connect graphics cards and related high-performance peripherals. It is an interface with low latency and high bandwidth. Therefore, it is ideal for very fast communication between the SSD and the server.

Nonvolatile Memory Express standard (NVMe) offers higher input output per second. SSDs that use this connection type run at up to 4,000 MB/s.

  • SATA III and mSATA III

Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) is an older interface than the PCIe. Their signaling technology allows them to transfer data faster than traditional hard disk drive - HDDs. They have speeds of up to 600MB per second. SATA SSDs also offer the best compatibility and value than the HDD variants.

There are SSDs that are designed for business purposes. They can be external or internal, and they are convenient means of boosting PCs, desktop computers, gaming consoles, and servers.

  • SAS SSD

The Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS) version SSDs provide faster data transfer rates than the SATA SSDs. In general, a SAS SSD provides dual-port connection and builds in features to improve reliability, high error correction, low data latency, end to end data integrity, high signal quality on the cable or backplane which is a NAND flash-based storage and fit in HDDs slot of enclosures. A SAS solid-state drive bandwidth speeds 3Gbps, 6Gbps, and 12Gbps, there are two form factors 2.5 inches and 3.5 inches.

There are SSDs that are designed for business purposes. They can be external or internal, and they are convenient means of boosting PCs, desktop computers, gaming consoles, and servers.
