Modern data processing applications, including video production, artificial intelligence, and surveillance systems, are driving unprecedented demand to scale storage capacity and improve storage performance. Developers of large data-intensive applications and data center operators need flexible, standards-based Solid-State Drives (SSD) to scale their storage architectures. The Codensity™ D400 Series PCIe NVMe SSDs, including our newest D408 SSD, are all powered by the innovative Codensity G4 SSD Controller SoC, delivering enterprise-class storage throughput, capacities and features, with high performance and reliability to overcome data storage scalability challenges.
Codensity is delivering tomorrow’s Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) throughput today, with the industry’s first SSD supporting a PCIe 4.0 x4 interface specification. With Codensity D408 SSD, read-intensive and streaming applications benefit from 2x the throughput per PCIe lane relative to any PCIe 3.0 SSD product on the market today.
Codensity D400 Series SSDs support the latest NVMe features to maximize the I/O performance and speed of solid state non-volatile memory (NVM) technology. Its streamlined queuing protocol, combined with optimized command set interface, delivers superior performance and lower latencies compared to SATA or SAS data storage technology.
The Codensity D408 SSD supports up to 16TB of raw storage, with up to 1000k random I/O processes per second (IOPS), 6.2 GB/s throughput, 100 µs read latency, and 15 µs us write latency, to deliver SSD storage performance for mission-critical enterprise and cloud applications. A comprehensive Error Correction Code (ECC) implementation overcomes the inherent bit storage reliability challenges with NAND Flash technology, delivering a high-reliability SSD solution with mean time to failure (MTTF) of 2 million device hours.
Video content is one of the largest consumers of network bandwidth and cloud storage capacity. Inside each D400 Series SSD is the Codensity G4 SSD Controller SoC with on-chip H.264/H.265 encoders and processors, allowing Codensity D400 Series SSDs to support advanced video storage capabilities. For example, H.264 content can be transcoded and compressed into H.265 format, saving 50% SSD storage capacity with minimal loss of video quality. When H.265 video is later retrieved, the video can be transcoded back to H.264, or pre-processed into different resolutions, bandwidth, or framerates, making Codensity SSD an innovative solution for scaling video storage and distribution.
The underlying Codensity G4 SSD controller SoC technology is based on a flexible multi-processor architecture with sixteen programmable flash control channels, allowing NETINT engineers to work with application developers and storage architects to optimize Codensity D408 SSD storage solutions and Flash device options for your application performance priorities.
