Testing Demonstrates Significant Improvements with Software and Storage Class Memory Capabilities
TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#DATABASE—Kioxia Corporation today announced that it has collaborated with Aerospike to enhance Aerospike Server Community Edition database – resulting in a 36 % increase in application performance compared with the original software without the enhancement by Kioxia. Testing was performed with KIOXIA FL6 Series enterprise NVMe™ Storage Class Memory (SCM) SSDs with a software enhancement developed by Kioxia.
The Aerospike database is optimized to run on flash memory and SSD devices and is capable of providing high throughput and low latency on flash memory.
Featuring Kioxia’s SCM solution, XL-FLASH™, the PCIe® 4.0 and NVMe 1.4 -compliant KIOXIA FL6 Series SSDs bridge the gap between DRAM and TLC-based drives, making them well-suited to latency-sensitive use cases such as caching layer, tiering and write logging. Currently, in mass production, dual-port KIOXIA FL6 Series drives deliver high endurance (60 DWPD) and are available in capacities up to 3,200 GB.
Detailed Aerospike testing results will be presented during Kioxia’s keynote address at the Flash Memory Summit on August 2.

*DWPD: Drive Write(s) Per Day. One full drive write per day means the drive can be written and re-written to full capacity once a day every 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 the host device, read and write conditions, and file size.
*Definition of capacity: Kioxia Corporation defines a megabyte (MB) as 1,000,000 bytes, a gigabyte (GB) as 1,000,000,000 bytes and a 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 1Gb = 2^30 bits = 1,073,741,824 bits, 1GB = 2^30 bytes = 1,073,741,824 bytes and 1TB = 2^40 bytes = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system, and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.
