‘Ruler’ SSD to enable 1PB server rack

  • Author:Ella Cai
  • Release on:2017-08-11
1PB in a server rack sounds extraordinary but Intel says it will be possible in the ‘near future’ using the new ‘Ruler’ SSD format.

The Ruler SSD’s interface performance, power, density and dimensions are all expandable.

Ruler conforms to the Enterprise & Datacenter Storage Form Factor (EDSFF) standard which has yet to be ratified though, with Dell, Lenovo, HPE, and Samsung on the working committee, it is pretty likely to be adopted..

The first Ruler SSDs will use 3D NAND and 3D X Point-based Rulers might follow.

Apart from that little is known about the Ruler.

The initial Ruler SSDs will use the SFF-TA-1002 “Gen-Z” connector, supporting PCIe 3.1 x4 and x8 interfaces with a maximum theoretical bandwidth of around 3.94 GB/s and 7.88 GB/s in both directions.
