Product Description

IBM 640GB High IOPS MLC Duo Adapter for IBM System x

This IBM 640GB High IOPS MLC Duo Adapter SSD-based high-performance server-class storage adapter can provide the performance required for extensive computations while utilizing a reduced storage footprint.


  • 640 GB of SSD storage in a standard PCIe adapter: significantly lower power and cooling costs, low management overhead, smaller storage footprint in the datacenter, and a much greener storage solution
  • An alternative to SSD-based hard drives: higher IOPS performance, lower cost per IOP, higher endurance, and efficiency of scale-up
  • IBM® branding: a single point of serviceability and enterprise-grade warranty to enable interoperability with a variety of IBM and partner products
  • The ability to do more with less during these tough economic times: lower operational expenditure (OPEX) and capital expenditure (CAPEX) in applications that require high IOPS compared to solutions that use a larger number of HDD and SSD devices to achieve equivalent IOPS

IBM 640GB High IOPS MLC Duo Adapter Overview

The 640GB High IOPS MLC Duo Adapter for IBM System x® comes with all the benefits of standard storage. Furthermore, it features enterprise-class high performance of up to 200,000 sustained IOPS. This adapter is designed primarily for performance hungry, high-performance servers and computing appliances while providing the added benefits of lower power and cooling costs, low management overhead, and a smaller storage footprint.

Based on standard PCIe architecture coupled with silicon-based NAND clustering storage technology, the High IOPS SSD PCIe Adapter is optimized for System x racks and blades. The scalable design comes in 640 GB capacity with Multi level cell (MLC) technology in a full-height, half-length PCI-e form factor.

This adapter uses NAND flash memory as the basic building block of solid-state storage and contains no moving parts; thus is less sensitive to issues associated with vibration, noise, and mechanical failure. The adapter is built as a block device on a PCIe bus with advanced wear-leveling, 11-bit ECC, and N+1 chip-level redundancy. The adapter provides unparalleled reliability and efficiency.

Whether enabling high-performance computing or reducing the storage footprint, IBM offers High IOPS SSD PCIe Adapters to meet your computational requirements. This adapter is compatible with a wide variety of System x systems.

Providing that additional peace of mind, your High IOPS PCIe Adapter purchase is covered under IBM warranty.
