Introduction

The ThinkSystem 5300 Mainstream SATA 6Gb solid-state drives (SSDs) use Micron 96-layer 3D NAND flash memory technology with a 6Gbps SATA interface. They provide an affordable solution for mixed read/write applications such as cache in transactional applications and high-speed storage for enterprise databases.

Did you know?

The 5300 Series of SATA SSDs are the follow-on to the 5200 line of SSDs. The two series share the same controller, firmware, interface and features. The key difference is that the 5300 Series uses a new 96-layer 3D NAND storage medium compared to the 64-layer technology in the 5200. The 5300 drives have higher endurance and lower latency compared to the 5200 SSDs.

Lenovo also offers high-performance self-encrypting drives (SEDs) in the 5300 Mainstream Series. These SSDs adhere to the Trusted Computing Group Enterprise Security Subsystem Class cryptographic standard (TCG Enterprise SSC). Read about them in the ThinkSystem 5300 Mainstream 6Gb SATA SED SSD product guide.

Features

The 5300 Mainstream SATA SSDs have the following features:

  • Industry standard 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch form factors
  • New generation 96-layer 3D TLC NAND flash memory
  • Suitable for mixed read/write workloads with an endurance of between 2.5 and 5 drive writes per day (DWPD) for 5 years
  • 6 Gbps SATA host interface
  • High reliability and enhanced ruggedness
  • MTTF of 3 million device hours - 50% more than most drives
  • Absence of moving parts to reduce potential failure points in the server
  • S.M.A.R.T. support
  • Advanced Encrypting Standard (AES) 256-bit encryption

SSDs have a huge but finite number of program/erase (P/E) cycles, which affect how long they can perform write operations and thus their life expectancy. Mainstream SSDs typically have a better cost per read IOPS ratio but lower endurance and performance compared to Performance SSDs. SSD write endurance is typically measured by the number of program/erase cycles that the drive can incur over its lifetime, which is listed as total bytes written (TBW) in the device specification.

The TBW value that is assigned to a solid-state device is the total bytes of written data that a drive can be guaranteed to complete. Reaching this limit does not cause the drive to immediately fail; the TBW simply denotes the maximum number of writes that can be guaranteed. A solid-state device does not fail upon reaching the specified TBW. However, at some point after surpassing the TBW value (and based on manufacturing variance margins), the drive reaches the end-of-life point, at which time the drive goes into read-only mode. Because of such behavior, careful planning must be done to use SSDs in the application environments to ensure that the TBW of the drive is not exceeded before the required life expectancy.

For example, the 5300 Mainstream 1.92 TB drive has an endurance of 17,520 TB of total bytes written (TBW). This means that for full operation over five years, write workload must be limited to no more than 9,600 GB of writes per day, which is equivalent to 5.0 full drive writes per day (DWPD). For the device to last three years, the drive write workload must be limited to no more than 16,000 GB of writes per day, which is equivalent to 8.3 full drive writes per day.

Operating system support

SATA SSDs operate transparently to users, storage systems, applications, databases, and operating systems.

Operating system support is based on the controller used to connect to the drives. Consult the controller propduct guide for more information:

Warranty

The 5300 Mainstream SATA SSDs carry a one-year, customer-replaceable unit (CRU) limited warranty. When the SSDs are installed in a supported server, these drives assume the system’s base warranty and any warranty upgrades.

Solid State Memory cells have an intrinsic, finite number of program/erase cycles that each cell can incur. As a result, each solid state device has a maximum amount of program/erase cycles to which it can be subjected. The warranty for Lenovo solid state drives (SSDs) is limited to drives that have not reached the maximum guaranteed number of program/erase cycles, as documented in the Official Published Specifications for the SSD product. A drive that reaches this limit may fail to operate according to its Specifications.
