NSD 3000

ScaleFlux NSD 3000  


The NSD 3000 series of NVMe SSDs helps you multiply the efficiency of your infrastructure – achieving 2x the performance and 2x the endurance of ordinary NVMe SSDs with similar capacity – without any integration into the application, file system, or server management.  ​

If you like the performance and endurance of the CSD 3000 but don’t need the Capacity Multiplier or Programable Cores, then NSD 3000 is the drive for you.  

The NSD 3000 combines the features of a high-performance NVMe SSD with ScaleFlux’s transparent compression engines.

  • High-performance Enterprise & Data Center NVMe SSD

    • NVMe 1.4 & OCP NVMe Cloud SSD Spec compliant​

    • Standard Form Factors: U.2, U.3, E1.x, HHHL Add-in Card​

    • X8 PCIe Gen 4 host interface supports 1x1 to 1x8 single-port and 2x2 dual-port configurations​

    • TLC & QLC NAND​

    • 3.84TB to 61.44TB Physical Capacity​

    • Configurable Overprovisioning​

    • TCG Opal 2.0​

    • Power Loss Data Protection​

    • Atomic Writes​

    • MTBF

  • Plus  Transparent compression​

    • Multiplies drive Endurance & Performance​

    • Requires zero application integration or CPU burden… plug in NSD 3000 and simply get the benefits. ​


Multiply Application Performance​

Test Set Up:​

  • Test server CPU is Intel(R) Xeon(R Gold 6126
  • FIO Mixed Random Read/Write IOPs at 512 QD, 4KB IO size, sustained performance after preconditioning.​

*Upside with 2:1 Compression Ratio​


Multiply Drive Endurance

2x Endurance is just the beginning​. With baseline data*, CSD achieves ~2x the endurance of ordinary “capacity” SSDs​

There is upside with compressible data​

  • At 2:1 compression ratio, 5x endurance​
  • At 3:1 compression ratio, 9x endurance​

​*Baseline = 1.2:1 CR.  Encrypted data and 100% incompressible data will reduce performance & endurance​
