Data Engine™ NVMe SSD Add-In Card

It’s not an SSD – It’s a Data Engine!

Meet the Data Engine: Category-defining uber-enterprise and HPC PCIe NVMe SSD. At an unprecedented 1,700,000 IOPS, Data Engine towers over competing high-end PCIe NVMe enterprise SSDs.

  • Four times the performance of the closest competitor SSD with super-low latency that generate superior application SLA
  • TruRandom pattern recognition reduces the power signature when processing non-random I/O
  • Non-blocking, stateful and scalable architecture that supports unlimited concurrent sustained random data requests
  • Intelligent lookup techniques increase performance by orders of magnitude
  • Scalable to over a billion IOPS inside the rack.

Data Engine SSDs are initially offered in three models, ranging from 2-10TB:

Data Engine T2

PCIe Gen3 x8 NVMe
HHHL Add-In Card
1,700 KIOPS

Data Engine T2D

PCIe Gen3 x8 NVMe
HHHL Add-In Card
1,700 KIOPS

Data Engine T4

PCIe Gen3 x16 NVMe
HHHL Add-In Card
3,400 KIOPS

TruRandom Technology™

A Significant Leap Forward

In the age of commodity NAND flash, the real SSD differentiation comes in the form of controller design and firmware suite developed around the core architecture. Smart IOPS’ innovative new architecture – TruRandom® – minimizes the overhead associated with internal SSD housekeeping, garbage collection and program/erase to unleash the raw I/O processing capability in the solid-state device. Additional patent-pending logic enhance data pattern recognition heuristics for data access such that random and sequential I/O requests become indistinguishable – a feat not achieved in the current generation of high-end competing SSDs. This advantage translates to I/O per second (IOPS) limits only within the reach Smart IOPS Data Engine SSDs which is to say that it is nearly 3 times faster than the closest competitor – 3x the performance with sub-10µs latency translates to superior application SLA.
