Aerospike Database is optimized to run on flash and SSD memory devices and is capable of delivering high throughput and low latency on flash memory.

Featuring Kioxia’s SCM solution, XL-FLASH™, PCIe® 4.0 and NVMe 1.4 compliant KIOXIA FL6 Series SSDs bridge the gap between DRAM and TLC drives, making them well suited for sensitive use cases latency such as caching layer, prioritization and write logging. Currently in mass production, dual-port KIOXIA FL6 series drives feature high endurance (60 DWPD) and are available in capacities up to 3200 GB.

Detailed Aerospike test results will be presented during Kioxia’s keynote at the Flash Memory Summit on August 2.

*DWPD: disk write(s) per day. One full disk write per day means the disk can be written to and rewritten at full capacity once a day for five years, the stated product warranty period. Actual results may vary due to system configuration, usage and other factors. Read and write speed may vary depending on host device, read and write conditions and file size.

*Capacity definition: Kioxia Corporation defines megabyte (MB) as 1,000,000 bytes, gigabyte (GB) as 1,000,000,000 bytes, and terabyte (TB) as 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1 GB = 2^30 bits = 1,073,741,824 bits, 1 GB = 2^30 bytes = 1,073,741,824 bytes and 1TB = 2^40 bytes = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes and hence shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary depending on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system and/or pre-installed software applications or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.
