The 90Y8643 Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) is an internal solid-state drive (SSD) that has been manufactured by IBM, a leading global technology company. In this article, we will provide an overview of the 90Y8643 drive, highlighting its key features and benefits. We will also explain the technical specifications of the drive, such as its storage capacity, interface, and form factor. Finally, we will discuss the advantages of using the 90Y8643 drive and its compatibility with various computer systems.

Overview of the 90Y8643 Drive The 90Y8643 drive is a 2.5-inch hot-swappable internal SSD that features a Serial ATA (SATA) interface. The drive has a storage capacity of 256GB and uses Multi-Level Cell (MLC) technology to store data. MLC technology is a type of NAND flash memory that can store multiple bits of data in each memory cell, resulting in higher storage density and lower costs compared to Single-Level Cell (SLC) technology.

The 90Y8643 drive is designed for use in enterprise environments, where high-speed data access, data security, and reliability are critical. The drive has a 6Gbps SATA interface, which allows it to transfer data at a rate of up to 600MB/s. This high-speed data transfer rate is essential for applications that require frequent access to large amounts of data, such as databases, virtual machines, and multimedia content.
