Another trademark of a manufacturer, Western Digital is the future, checked out will not only be for the hard disk drive (HDD). Under WD, Gold, and now we offer Ssds for the servers. The WD Gold NVMe SSDs will offer up to 7,68 TB of storage space, and 3,100 MB/s, and a 2-door.

Ssd, Blue, Green, Red, blue, and Black, and now Gold,

Continually, the Western Digital broadcasting, a time of pure-HDD-brands-in SSD Portfolio. According to the WD Blue and the WD Green for the main Ssd, a WD Red for the NAS, SSDs, and a WD Black for NVMe Ssds for gamers, the WD’s from the Gold to the Company’s SSDs here now. In fact, the WD Purple is a brand name for hard drives and memory cards for video surveillance, and on the left, there are no SSDs.

WD, Gold, NVMe Ssd is to small-and medium-sized enterprises

With the SSD, the series of the WD, the Gold you want to Western Digital’s credit, the small and medium-sized enterprises in the transition to the NVMe-based data storage will allow. NVMe stands for Non-Volatile Memory Express), and it is the Name of a specific one for the PCIe Ssd Protocol is being developed. SATA Ssd on the AHCI Protocol.

The WD Gold, SSDs rely on NVMe 1.3 a rationale, and a PCIe 3.0 x4 electrical interface. The 2.5-inch form-factor, and (2)-the port is in use. The housing measures in the field of the protection of the Consumer, the standard is 7 mm in height, while the other is on the Enterprise Ssd may be 15 mm in height. That is equipped with an more and more close to the specified Controller and 3D TLC NAND from its own 96-Layer to the next (BiCS4), depending on the model, up to 960 gigabytes (GB), 1.92 TB, a 3.84 TB, or 7,68 TB of storage space that is available to you.

With over 3,000 MB/s and 3,100 MB/s, and a 413,000-a-plus-for-469.000 the performance of the TEST varies by just a little bit. When you Write the models, the greatest differences: for example, the 960-GB model, up to a maximum of 1100 MB/s, except in the case of sequential, while the others have been up to 1,800 MB/s and 2,000 MB/s random Write IOPS fall with 44,000 to 65,000 this is fairly low. Generally, SSDs are designed to accelerate compute-farms, due to the speed of the read access, and 0.8 DWPD (Drive Writes Per Day), and there’s a lot of writers. During the warranty period of five years, and this is a performance record of at least a 1.4 Petabyte (up to 960 GB up to 11,21 Petabyte (at 7,68 TB).

In the data sheet (PDF) is a “Protection against loss of power“the speech, however, is not fully explained, which is the Way it is being used by a power failure, the protection of the data. A full Power loss Protection ensures that, through the decoupling capacitors, for example, the data in the volatile Cache in DRAM. Less costly implementations only provide for the security of the data contained in the NAND Flash memory. The average energy consumption is estimated to be around 4 to 5 watts at idle, and between 10 and 12 watts with the effort. In a direct comparison to be made, and the Ssd would not be, therefore, more cost-effective than Hdd’s do, but much faster.

At the beginning of the second quarter, and therefore presumably in April, and the WD-Thumb-Ssd-to “Channel partners and end user customers“it will be available to you. The price has not yet been called.
