SMART Modular Technologies Inc. reports its XceedIOPS solid state drives (SSDs) will provide storage for the planned IBM Power7 supercomputer.

The SSDs are expected to provide substantially higher levels of performance compared to HDDs to meet the data management requirements of the supercomputer.

The XceedIOPS SAS SSD uses 34nm Enterprise-grade multi-level-cell (E-MLC) NAND flash technology to provide endurance and a five-year minimum operational life even in workload-intensive environments.

The SSDs also offer extensive error-correction and detection features, multi-level data-path and code protection, data-loss recovery, and active thermal management designed to improve reliability and data integrity.
