“We are excited to announce this new series of DuraFlash PCIe NVMe SSD products, which will enable our customers to take advantage of next-gen PCIe Gen 4 x4 compatibility,” said Victor Tsai, SMART’s Director of Flash products. “Available in three form factors, SMART’s MP3000 line provides options for server and client platforms in both industrial and enterprise environments with capacities ranging from 240GigaBytes to 1920GigaBytes.”

The MP3000 offers speeds up to 3500MB/s Sequential Read and 2000MB/s Sequential Writes. It is compliant to NVMe v1.4 specification with supported enterprise SSD features such as Namespace Management (up to 16 namespaces), out-of-band NVMe Management Interface (NVMe-MI), and 512-bytes and 4096-bytes LBA formats.

For Enterprise environments, the MP3000 series meets endurance requirements of up to 1 Drive Write per Day (DWPD) of Enterprise workloads as defined by JEDEC. The MP3000 series is also offered in extended life cycle versions for industrial applications that need longer availability. Since power loss is a key concern in most applications, the MP3000 also come with the SafeDATA system, SMART Modular’s power-loss data protection system that includes specialized hardware circuitry and algorithms for securely protecting in-flight data during a power loss or power fluctuation scenarios. The MP3000 series products are Self-Encrypting Drives (SEDs) supporting advanced security features that include Secure Boot with PKI-based firmware authenticity verification and the latest Trusted Computing Groups (TCG) Opal 2.01 standard with AES-XTS 256 data encryption.
