HGST incorporates specialized software and hardware that combine to implement Storage Class Memory (SCM) within the server. The HGST architecture has been designed to tightly integrate different kinds of flash media, hardware and software to deliver memory-class performance with storage-class capacity and persistence. HGST’s FlashMAX® II SCM devices and associated software deliver performance without compromise, along with HDD-like capacity in a very compact, universal form factor. Unlike competing solutions, 100% of the capacity available on a FlashMAX II card is available as a single host volume on the server without having to leverage 3rd party software RAID products to stripe across multiple drives. With FlashMAX II you can have a single volume presented to the operating system up to the formatted capacity, which can be as large as 4.8TB when using the FlashMAX II Capacity model.
