Supermicro Solutions Support NVMe™ SSD in M.2 Form Factor

Supermicro now offers client/enterprise NVMe NVMe™ SSDs in the industry-standard M.2 2280/22110 form factor, with up to 1920GB of capacity. M.2 form factor NVMe SSDs support up to four lanes of PCIe® 3.1, delivering a maximum interface bandwidth more than six times that of SATA's 6.0Gbit/s. The NVMe protocol is optimized for solid state technology and designed for low latency. Powerful error correction technology helps protect customer data from corruption, improves reliability, and extends the life of the SSD. Engineered for power efficiency, client/enterprise NVMe M.2 SSDs take advantage of the lower power state modes defined by the PCIe specification.

* Definition of capacity: Defined as a megabyte (MB) as 1,000,000 bytes, a gigabyte (GB) as 1,000,000,000 bytes and a terabyte (TB) as 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1GB = 230 = 1,073,741,824 bytes and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system, such as Microsoft Operating System and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.

** Read and write speed may vary depending on the host device, read and write conditions, and file size.
