Oracle's 1.6 TB NVMe SSD offers high performance with low latency and a low CPU burden. The 1.6 TB NVMe SSD is a PCIe Gen3 storage drive that is designed with the new high performance controller interface – NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory express), delivering leading performance, low latency and high quality of service.
The Oracle 1.6 TB NVMe SSD is designed with advanced enterprise multi-level cell NAND (eMLC) technology for high-level performance and write durability. With PCIe Gen3 support and NVMe queuing interface, the 1.6 TB NVMe SSD delivers excellent sequential read performance of up to 2500MB/sec and sequential write speeds of up to 1500MB/sec. The Oracle 1.6 TB NVMe SSD delivers very high random read IOPS of 260K and random write IOPS of 42K for 8KB operations and random read IOPS of 440K and random write IOPS of 70K for 4KB operations. Taking advantage of the direct path from the storage to the CPU by means of NVMe, Oracle 1.6 TB NVMe SSD exhibits low latency of less than 20 μsec for sequential access to the storage drive.
The Oracle 1.6 TB NVMe SSD is a block storage device, with block sizing optimization capabilities. You can use the NVMe SSD for either nonpersistent or persistent data.
