Chinese companies have not had much say in the storage field. With the decline in the prices of storage products and the impact of international trade in the past two years, domestic storage manufacturers have the opportunity to overtake, but all technology products have Their respective life cycles, from the difficult R&D start-up to the mass production to the market, have a long way to go, and SSD solid-state drives are no exception.

We all know that Huawei has various processor chips such as Kirin and Ling Hao, but do you know Huawei's self-developed SSD solid state drives?

Because it is only for enterprise-level applications, Huawei's self-developed SSD is very low-key. Many people don't even know that Huawei has this set. In fact, it is a cow.

Today, Huawei China officially created a graphic detailing the history of Huawei's self-developed SSD, as well as its high quality and reliability.

As early as 2005, Huawei launched the pre-research on SSD. It started to develop PCIe SSD and was one of the earliest companies in the industry.Since then, Huawei's self-developed SSD has made great strides in the speed of basically every two years.

In 2007, Huawei officially released the first self-developed SSD, model ES2000, and the world's first PCIe SSD.In 2009 and 2011, the second generation ES2000 v2 and the third generation ES 2000 v3 were released.

In 2012, Huawei self-developed SSD was upgraded to a new fourth-generation model, the ES3000, using 25nm MLC flash memory, with a capacity of 800GB-2.4TB, continuously reading 3.2GB/s, and randomly reading 760K IOPS, which was the fastest PCIe in the industry at that time. SSD.

The fifth generation of 2014ES3000 v2Upgrade to 19nm MLC flash memory with more capacity, 600GB-3.2TB.

Sixth generation in 2016ES3000 v3Join support for NVMe technology, SAS interface, flash update to 15nm 3D MLC, capacity 800GB-6.4TB,Continuous reading 3.2GB/s, random reading 800K IOPSIs the fastest NVMe SSD in the industry.

The 7th generation ES3000 v5 released in 2018 is the latest product. The main control is the fourth-generation ASIC designed and developed by HiSilicon. It is equipped with 3D TLC flash memory and has a capacity of 800GB-16TB. It is continuously read and randomly read to 3.5GB/ s, 825K IOPS, and support intelligent QoS, multi-stream, atomic write characteristics.

Huawei expects to launch its eighth-generation product, model ES3000 v6, for the first time in the year to next year, with PCIe 4.0 and QLC flash memory.

In the era of PCIe 4.0, users can achieve better performance with fewer channels. With the advancement of graphics cards and games and movie technology, the bandwidth of PCIe 3.0 can be fully filled sooner or later, so PCIe 4.0 is the future, Huawei Real-time follow-up of new technology development to promote the development of the entire storage industry, I believe that the future will be better and better, and ultimately achieve true technological self-improvement, independent innovation, so that we are no longer subject to anyone.

To ensure high reliability of SSD data, Huawei has a dedicated reliability and long-term stability laboratory.Huawei SSD R&D Lab& rdquo;, deployed more than 1500 servers, storage arrays, more than 8,000 test samples, 50,000 use cases, 7 & times; 24 hours verification.

At the same time, Huawei has accumulated decades of SSD life and reliability professional test platform, using the industry's most stringent test standards, UBER (bit error rate), MTBF (mean time between failures) are the industry's best level.

Especially at high temperatures, the reliability advantage of Huawei SSD is more prominent. It runs for 2001 hours at 65 °C. It is calculated by the high-temperature acceleration method commonly used in the industry and the Arrhenius model acceleration model, with a confidence level of 90%.The MTBF is 2.5 million hours long.

According to the ranking of global enterprise SSD vendors released by the authoritative market research organization Gartner in 2017-2018, Huawei ranked seventh in the past two consecutive years and is the only domestic manufacturer selected for TOP10.


Speaking of PCIe 4.0 SSD, many manufacturers have demonstrated at the Taipei Computer Show. Most of them are based on the group E16 main control. The capacity is generally 512GB, 1TB, 2TB. Gigabyte has been officially released, but there is no price. Message.

Now, the French e-commerce disclosed the price (including tax) of the pirate ship PCIe 4.0 MP600, respectively1TB 249 Euro (¥1925), 2TB 449 Euro (¥3470).

Compared with the flagship SSD MP510, the pirate ship is sold at a price of 1TB 160 Euros and 2TB 320 Euros.The new generation of PCIe 4.0 is 40-55% expensive.

The pirate ship MP600 is based on the group E16 master control, with a nominal sustained read and write speed of up to 4950MB/s and 4250MB/s. It is a superior, and the heatsink is not too exaggerated.

The original Ruilong 3000 desktop processor, RX 5700 series graphics card and X570 motherboard supporting PCIe 4.0 will be available on July 7th, and PCIe 4.0 SSD will be released in the near future.


In addition, SK Hynix launched a new generation of enterprise-class SSD hard drives, but the official did not announce the name of the SSD hard drive, only knowIt is NVMe standard, based on the 72-layer stack of 3D TLC flash, M.2 version with a maximum capacity of 4TB and U.2 capacity of up to 8TB.

In terms of performance, SK Hynix said that the new generation of enterprise-class hard drives can achieve a continuous speed of 3200MB/s and a random performance of 160K IOPS.

Compared to the 72-layer stack of flash drives introduced at FMS 2018, the next-generation enterprise-class SSDs have a 30% increase in sequential read and write performance and a 70% increase in random writes, while supporting read-sensitive and hybrid applications, including Data center, AI, ML machine learning and VDI virtual desktop architecture.

It is worth mentioning that SK hynix's new generation of enterprise-class SSDs have extremely low power consumption, and normal applications are lower than 14W, which is a very low level in enterprise SSDs.

In addition, SK hynix said it will launch a larger capacity enterprise-class SSD hard drive by the end of this year. The flash memory will be upgraded from the current 72-layer stack to the 96-layer stack, with a capacity of 16TB. It is expected to be mass-produced next year.


Finally, Jingdong Computer Digital announced the 618 Ultimate Battle Report, which was published from June 1st to 18th, covering a wide range of computer digital products such as notebooks, graphics cards, motherboards and cameras.

From the battle report,Lenovo became the biggest winner in the notebook category, and won the first place in the notebook turnover, thin and light turnover, and the game's turnover TOP5 brand.

In terms of tablet turnover, Apple, Huawei, Microsoft, Glory, and Xiaomi ranked in the top five; desktop TOP5 brands were: Lenovo, Dell, HP, Raytheon, and AOC.

In addition, the TOP5 brands of e-sports display turnover are: Asus, Samsung, AOC, Philips, Acer;Main board turnover TOP5 Brand: Asus, MSI, Gigabyte, ASRock and player country.
