FADU to Showcase the Latest BRAVO Enterprise Storage SSD in its new E1.S Format at Virtual OCP Summit 2020

FADU’s new BRAVO E1.S SSD is the ideal form factor for high-performance enterprise storage.

FADU Technology (fadu.io), a fabless startup focused on advancing flash storage technology to meet the accelerating data demands placed on Enterprise and Hyperscale datacenters, today announces the BRAVO E1.S SSD. This form factor is ideal for high-capacity, high-performance enterprise storage.

The BRAVO SSD family improves data center efficiency compared to legacy storage systems, by requiring less power and cooling for a lower total cost of ownership (TCO). The lineup delivers better Quality of Service (QoS) through reduced latency and data delays while offering enhanced reliability and endurance.

The BRAVO E1.S SSD is designed to meet a wide range of data center storage demands:

  • E1.S form factor with 9mm, 15mm, and 25mm thickness depending on heat sink
  • Only 5W Active Read / 7W Active Write / 1/5W Standby power
  • Up to 3.3GB/s Sequential Read and 1.8GB/s Sequential Write
  • Up to 715 Sustained KIOPS Random Read and 83 Sustained KIOPS Random Write
  • Available in 1 / 2 / 4 / 8TB capacity designs  using 3D TLC NAND

“We chose OCP 2020 as the place to introduce our new Bravo E1.S SSD because this event is customer-driven,” said Jihyo Lee, FADU CEO and co-founder. “We founded our startup to embrace the voice of our customers as the best way to prioritize and streamline our resources.  The Bravo E1.S SSD is a great example of our focus on leading innovation ahead of the industry,” Lee continued.

The E1.S form factor is both a compliment to the existing BRAVO M.2 and U.2 form factor SSDs, and an answer challenges presented when using the earlier formats. BRAVO SSDs are powered by FADU’s FC3081 NVMe controller, using a RISV-V architecture that delivers breakthrough performance by fully automating the hardware and removing bottlenecks.

See a video demo of the Bravo E1.S SSD at the Fadu Virtual Booth during the Virtual OCP Summit 2020, May 12-15.

The E1.S form factor BRAVO SSD is sampling now to partners and will be available as a turnkey solution, wherein FADU supplies the FC 3081 controller, SSD design, and customized firmware, or as a finished, private-labeled High-Performance SSD with consigned 3D TLC NAND Flash.
