FADU Technology to Demonstrate Production-Ready Gen 4 Enterprise Storage Solutions at OCP Summit 2021

PCIe Gen 4/NVMe 1.4a Solutions Gaining Qualifications and Entering Production

Santa Clara Calif., – November 2, 2021 – FADU Technology is a fabless startup developing and delivering advanced flash storage technology solutions to meet the ever-increasing data storage demands placed on OEM and hyperscale data centers. The company announced it is a sponsor of the 2021 OCP Global Summit, an event held online November 8-10, 2021, and at the San Jose Convention Center, November 9-10, 2021.

FADU will showcase its production-ready Delta Enterprise SSDs. The Delta family is available in popular E1.S and U.2 form factors and supports PCIe 4 x 4 Lanes, NVMe 1.4a, and OCP Cloud Spec 2.0. FADU’s FC4121 SSD Controller powers the Gen 4 SSDs.

“The unique architecture of our FC4121 Gen 4 controller enables this generation of enterprise SSDs to set the standard for low power and high QoS,” said Jihyo Lee, CEO, and Co-Founder of FADU. “We’re pleased to be in a leadership position deploying Gen 4 storage in high-performance computing systems while helping system architects stay in their power consumption envelope with our game-changing performance,” Lee continued.

The FADU Delta E1.S and U.2 SSDs, which have undergone rigorous testing and qualification at OEMs in the past year, are available in capacities from 2TB to 16TB. Key performance metrics include:
