Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX2540 M6 supports EDSFF

Break free from the limitations of legacy data centre SSD form factors with the revolutionary E1.L and E1.S Intel® SSDs based on Enterprise and Data Center SSD Form Factor (EDSFF). Designed from the ground up, EDSFF-based SSDs deliver the building blocks for scalable solutions. Increased operational efficiency and massive space consolidation reducing the storage physical footprint, results in lower TCO.

Featuring a common connector and pinout, the array of flexible, future-ready features enable a broad range of interoperable designs.

Designed to meet top data centre storage challenges

Creation of EDSFF was guided by three principles: enable scale, optimize total cost of ownership, and enable a dynamic range of solutions.

These principles were driven by key data centre storage challenges, as surveyed from top IT decision makers, including: ability to scale capacity to support data and application growth, driving down the cost of storage—lowering operating and capital expenditures, while increasing storage agility, and deliver required application performance without compromises. With a healthy and growing ecosystem, Intel supports EDSFF as the data centre form factor standard of the future.
