Memblaze and PMC Partner to Provide High-Performance PCIe SSDs up to 8TB

/ 2 years ago


When two giants come together to form something new, you just know it’s going to be amazing. Memblaze will be using PMC’s Flashtec NVM Express controllers in its next-generation PCI Express flash accelerators. The Flashtec-based Memblaze PBlaze4 products might be targeted at hyperscaling and Open Compute Project deployments, but I’d sure like to have one of these.

They provide ultra-low latency and the lowest CPU load in the industry and read and write capabilities of up to 850,000 IOPS for random read and 265,000 IOPS for random write. Transfer speeds go up to 3.2GB/s sequential read and 2.5GB/s sequential write performance. Memblaze products also enable customers to define and alter key settings to ensure optimum performance in specific applications and platforms.


The flash memory controller family includes 16-channel and 32-channel devices to enable SSDs with up to 8TB of storage and performance up to 850,000 IOPS, two times greater capacity and performance than other controllers. Dual port functionality delivers high availability for enterprise-class application support, redundancy and sustained uptime reliability.

Now that’s some juicy numbers. The new drives will be showcased at Wenjin Hotel in Beijing today and the event can be followed on twitter with the #PMCFlashtec hashtag.
