KIOXIA SSDs Gain Compatibility Approval with Broadcom Tri-Mode Adapters

Broad Range of NVMe, SAS and SATA Drives Successfully Tested with Broadcom’s 9400 Series

SAN JOSE, Calif., July 21, 2020 – KIOXIA America, Inc. (formerly Toshiba Memory America, Inc.) today announced that its lineup of NVMe, SAS and SATA SSDs have been successfully tested for compatibility and interoperability with Broadcom’s 9400 series of host bus adapters (HBAs) and MegaRAID® adapters. Making up the broadest portfolio of SSDs in the industry, KIOXIA’s drives are available for client PCs, as well as data center, hyperscale and enterprise servers and storage systems.

Today’s enterprise technology landscape demands increased interoperability among diverse products. Broadcom, a leading provider of adapters for servers and storage, developed the 9400 series of Tri-mode HBAs and RAID adapters to enable connectivity with any combination of NVMe, SAS and SATA devices. As NVMe technology continues to gain traction within modern data center and enterprise environments, the Broadcom 9400 series enables the use of this newer technology without losing the benefits of existing SAS and SATA storage.

“Customers expect products to just work together, but it takes a full-suite of testing to ensure proper operation and full functionality,” said Jas Tremblay, vice president and general manager, Data Center Storage Group, Broadcom. “Collaborating with KIOXIA and testing with our industry-leading 9400 series Tri-Mode storage adapters gives customers the confidence that our combined solution will deliver. In addition, we are pleased to continue this effort with KIOXIA on our PCIe Gen 4.0, 9500 series of storage adapters.”

“We take quality seriously, and want our customers to have a great out of the box experience,” said Jeremy Werner, senior vice president and general manager, SSD Business Unit, KIOXIA America, Inc. “As a leader in data center and enterprise SSDs, we recognize the importance of collaborating with other innovators to ensure that current and future products and technologies work together seamlessly.”
