Synology has announced that it has added two 800GB M.2 22110 and M.2 2280 SSD models to its range of enterprise-class M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD for data storage caching.
Recall that the first M.2 SSD with PCIe 3.0 x4 interface was presented by Synology last summer. These were the SNV3400 and SNV3500 models of the M.2 2280 SSD and M.2 22110 sizes, respectively. Both drives were 400GB in size, and the difference between them was the protection against data loss during a power failure in the SNV3500 model.
Like their predecessors, the 800GB drives are optimized for read-dominated workloads. During the five-year warranty period, they withstand 0.68 rewrites per day. Performance on read operations reaches 375,000 IOPS, and on write operations – 70,000 IOPS. For comparison: for a 400GB SSD, these indicators were equal to 205,000 and 40,000 IOPS.
- Over 375,000/70,000 sustained 4K random read/write IOPS for demanding I/O
- Suitable for intensive caching workloads at up to 988 TBW
- End-to-end data protection ensures data integrity
- Actionable insight helps make optimal use of SNV3000 series SSD performance and longevity
- Proven interoperability with Synology systems through rigorous validation
Price and availability
- Synology M.2 2280 SSD SNV3400 800GB has been priced at $437.87 and is now available to buy on the Amazon.com website.
- Synology M.2 22110 NVMe SSD SNV3500 800GB, on the other hand, costs $334.83 and it can also be purchased through the Amazon.com website.
Recently, PNY Technologies has also introduced a series of low-cost M.2-2280 SSDs with PCI-Express 3.0 x4 and NVMe 1.3 support. The CS1030 series M.2 NVMe SSD includes 256GB, 512GB, 1TB and 2TB models.
And Samsung has also expanded its 870 EVO solid state drive family with the 4TB variant. This solution is suitable for use on desktops and laptops. The SATA 3.0 interface is used to connect to a computer, providing a bandwidth of up to 6 Gb/s. The speed of sequential reading reaches 560 MB/s, the speed of sequential writing is 530 MB/s.
