The standard form factor SSD that is anything but

The Liqid Element U.2 PCIe SSD features high storage capacity and extreme performance for mission-critical and performance-demanding workloads. It is a standard form factor 2.5” 15 mm design that works seamlessly with systems that have existing 2.5” U.2 NVMe slots. This makes the Element U.2 ideal for deployment in data center and enterprise applications.

Small but mighty

The Element U.2 offers a hot pluggable Gen 3.0 x4 PCIe interface with dual-port capability, which enables high throughput and high availability and utilizes the latest NVMe protocol in order to deliver increased performance and efficiency from a single device. The U.2 outperforms legacy architectures by delivering up to 850 K IOPS of random performance, over 3.60 GB/s of throughput, and ultra-low, 20us transactional latency.

3.60 GB/s to 850 K IOPS

Performance can directly impact infrastructure costs. Our design and efficiency make it easier to manage extensive workloads such as massive content streaming repositories.

NVMe SSD, up to 8 TB

Our storage-dense drives dramatically cut down on server space. This means you can utilize the same carriers while possibly quadrupling your storage capability.

>30,000 IOPS/Watt

Our technology is among the best in the industry related to a performance per watt. Typical performance for the Liqid Element U.2 is 850 K IOPS. That works out to a conservative estimate of >30,000 IOPS/W. Typical enterprise SSDs are much lower, at only 5-10 K IOPS/W.

Custom-fit for your needs

The Element U.2’s innovative design enables multiple drive configuration ranging from maximum performance to maximum redundancy. The U.2 also features enterprise-class power failure protection for increased reliability to prevent data loss and ensure uninterrupted work in case of power failure.
