Description
Bottom rule

High-density, read-intensive drives enable cost-sensitive applications to scale and achieve high read performance while maintaining traditional reliability and endurance levels. A 3.84 TB, 12 Gb SAS, 2.5-inch, read-intensive flash drive option is now available for IBM Storwize V5000 (models 124, 224, 324, and 24F), Storwize V7000 (models 524 and 24F), and SVC Model 24F.

Traditionally, IBM Storwize Family flash drives have been built on enterprise-class mid to high endurance multi-level cell flash, and are targeted for write-intensive or mixed application workloads. The NAND flash used in read-intensive drives tend to be of lower endurance, consequently the number of write operations is more limited than in mainstream endurance flash drives.

Accessibility by people with disabilities

A US Section 508 Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) containing details on accessibility compliance can be found on the IBM Accessibility website.
