Cutting-Edge Storage for Edge Environments

Gestalt IT Summary

As the proliferation of AI, cloud gaming, content delivery networks, smart grids, and data driven applications continues to increase, the demand for edge and near-edge computing is growing along with it, which enables lower latency and better overall performance. These edge environments demand “the deployment of flexible, reliable, energy-efficient, and dense edge servers,” explains Gestalt article author, Stephen Foskett.

Advanced solid-state drives are the clear-cut answer to providing edge servers the performance, reliability, energy efficiency, and storage density they require solid-state. And, as Foskett indicates, the Solidigm D5-P5430 SSD in the new E3 form factor is a prime candidate for the job. The D5-P5430 SSD leverages QLC flash storage to provide performance and reliability in a value-optimized design.

The advantages to deploying SSDs such as the D5-P5430 SSD are numerous. The most obvious benefit is that they deliver on performance—with read and write speeds suited to keep pace with the heavy workloads and low-latency requirements inherent in edge servers. These SSDs also provide high endurance while consuming less power. 

Another clear advantage is their compact size, which allows for higher density deployments where space is at a premium. SSDs like the D5-P5430 are also more durable and able to withstand harsh conditions—often the norm in edge deployments—better than many alternatives on the market today. 

As the demand for edge computing continues to increase, organizations must find suitable solutions to power these edge servers. The Solidigm D5-P5430 SSD delivers the performance and reliability crucial to ensure their success— at a costs that makes sense.
