Benefits of NVMe and TLC Technology

NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) is a new storage protocol designed specifically for solid-state drives (SSDs) that are connected to a computer's PCI-E bus. This protocol provides faster and more efficient communication between the drive and the CPU, compared to traditional SATA and SAS storage protocols. The benefits of using NVMe technology in the HPE P13699-H21 1.6TB SFF SCN Smart Carrier TLC NVMe PCI-E DS Single Port SSD are:

  • Increased speed and performance: NVMe technology allows for faster data transfer speeds, lower latency and increased I/O operations per second (IOPS). This results in improved overall system performance, faster application loading times and reduced downtime.
  • Scalability: NVMe supports multiple parallel queues, which means that multiple requests can be processed simultaneously, resulting in improved system performance and scalability.
  • Lower power consumption: NVMe technology uses less power compared to traditional SATA and SAS protocols, which results in improved energy efficiency and a longer lifespan for the drive.

TLC (Triple-Level Cell) is a type of NAND flash memory that stores three bits of data per cell. TLC technology is less expensive than other types of NAND flash memory, but provides improved storage density, resulting in increased storage capacity. The benefits of using TLC technology in the HPE P13699-H21 1.6TB SFF SCN Smart Carrier TLC NVMe PCI-E DS Single Port SSD are:

  • Increased storage capacity: TLC technology provides higher storage density, resulting in larger storage capacity compared to other types of NAND flash memory.
  • Cost-effective: TLC technology is less expensive compared to other types of NAND flash memory, making it an attractive option for those who need high storage capacity at a lower cost.
  • Improved reliability: TLC technology has improved error correction algorithms, which help to improve data reliability and longevity.

About Refurbished Products

Refurbished products are typically refurbished by an Original Manufacturer or an affiliate of the manufacturer or 3rd party facility. This product may have minor blemishes due to normal product usage and doesn't necessarily come with documentation and software unless indicated, but has been well tested and generally has never had any defects.

The PCI-e solid-state drives are high-speed expansion cards that facilitate the attachment of peripherals to a computer. Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCI-e) is a serial expansion bus standard. There are different sizes of PCI-e slots which are dictated by the total sum of bidirectional lanes at the slot. The PCI-e standard acts as the data transport layer in add-in cards and graphics cards.

PCI-e SSD storage is just another alternative to server-side flash deployment. Using PCI-e SSDs directly introduces flash on the server motherboard which means that a device connects to the host via a non-shared serial link. It will, therefore, eliminate bus sharing between devices. The PCI-e interface helps reduce latency and enhances the data transfer speed.

Features of PCI-e SSD Cards

Generally, PCI-e SSD card has a far better performance compared to SATA SSDs and SAS SSDs as well as the fibre channel solid-state drives. Some of the most notable versions of the PCI-e standard are the PCI-e 3.0 released back in November of 2010 and PCI-e 4.0 released back in 2017. PCI-e 4.0 offers a two-fold increase in bandwidth compared to the PCI-e 3.0 revision. The PCI-e 5.0 was released in 2019 with even greater bandwidth to support faster and efficient performance.

Other standards released by the PCI-SIG are the NVMe (non-volatile memory express). NVMe delivers a highly optimized set of commands for easier accessing of PCI-e SSDs. NVMe is all about exploiting parallelism in PCI-e to enhance performance.

Yet another interface is the M.2 SSDs which is a smaller form factor that is designed for expansion cards that are mounted internally in high-performance workstations and servers. It's a replacement to the mSATA and carries four lanes of bandwidth of the PCI-e 3.0 standard.

We have the following wide range of storage capacities for the PCI-e SSDs to meet all your needs. The capacity options we have here at AllHDD are: 100GB, 240GB, 250GB, 256GB, 280GB, 320GB, 365GB, 375GB, 380GB, 400GB, 480GB, 500GB, 512GB, 750GB, 785GB, 800GB, 960GB, 1TB, 1.2TB, 1.27TB, 1.3TB, 1.5TB, 1.6TB, 1.75TB, 1.79TB, 1.86TB, 1.92TB, 2TB, 2.6TB, 3TB, 3.2TB, 3.5TB, 3.84TB, 4TB, 6.4TB, 7.68TB, 8TB, 11TB, 12.8TB, and 15.36TB.

Overall, the lower latency allows PCI-e and NVMe SSDs to provide fast response times in processing and handling large workloads such as those associated with data warehousing and transaction processing. One of the best applications of PCI-e flash is in data centers where read and write access is in microseconds and is able to meet input/output (I/O) requirements. PCI-e SSDs help in surpassing the bottlenecks that are linked with the use of SAS and SATA SSDs especially in guaranteeing performance in frequent file transfer scenarios. The total sum of PCI-e lanes in an SSD determines the effective data transfer speeds. For example, a 16-lane PCI-e 3.0 device will easily achieve 32 Gbps transfer speeds.

Some of the drawbacks associated with the PCI-e SSDs are the prohibitive costs and high power consumption that leads to shorter battery life.
