Technical information
Bottom rule

Specified operating environment

Physical specifications

Physical specifications are not applicable at the feature level. For the physical specifications of a specific machine type and model, refer to the appropriate Sales Manual.

Limitations

Solid-state memory cells have an intrinsic, finite number of write cycles that each cell can incur. As a result, each solid-state device has a maximum amount of write cycles to which it can be subjected, documented as TBW (Total Bytes Written). IBM is not responsible for replacement of hardware that has reached the maximum guaranteed number of write cycles. This limit may be revealed as the device failing to respond to system generated commands or becoming incapable of being written to.

For documentation on TBW, refer to

http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/x/options/storage/solidstate/index.html

Then click on section "See our Solid State Drives comparison chart."

Planning information

Cable orders

No cables required.

Security, auditability, and control

This product uses the security and auditability features of host software and application software.

The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communications facilities.
