KIOXIA Showcases Storage Solutions That Unlock Server and Storage Potential at HPE Discover 2023

Technology Breakthroughs, Including PCIe 5.0 SSDs and the E3.S Form Factor, to be Demonstrated at Conference

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 15, 2023 – Next week at HPE® Discover 2023, KIOXIA America, Inc., the inventor of NAND flash memory, will showcase its broad lineup of next-gen, flash-based solid state drives (SSDs) that are optimizing Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE)  solutions – from the edge to the cloud.

This year’s HPE Discover highlights the products, solutions and strategies that are central to the data-first modernization of businesses. From mobile to data center to enterprise, innovative, high-performance SSDs from KIOXIA are leading the way forward. KIOXIA has been collaborating with HPE to create best in class solutions for years, helping customers turn ideas into innovation.

KIOXIA flash storage solutions – such as SSDs designed with PCIe ®5.0 technology
and the industry’s first1 lineup of Enterprise and Datacenter Standard Form Factor (EDSFF) E3.S SSDs accelerate customer application performance, reduce TCO while improving sustainability and enable higher-performance and densities. According to Neville Ichhaporia, senior vice president and general manager, SSD Business Unit, for KIOXIA America, Inc., these attributes are critical to the modernization of data centers and the adoption of a more ‘data first’ approach.

“As a leader in flash storage and SSD solutions, KIOXIA is ideally suited to collaborate with HPE on their mission to unlock trapped legacy data, then process, analyze and capture its value - from the edge all the way to the cloud,” said Ichhaporia.

Product and technology demonstrations will be given in the KIOXIA booth #312 on the show floor at the Venetian® Conference and Expo Center in Las Vegas from June 20 – 22.

1: As of October 25, 2021, based on industry survey of publicly available information

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.
