Fremont, CA, October 8, 2015 --- Lite-On Storage Group, a global leader in the design, development and manufacturing of enterprise and client solid-state drives announces the debut of its next generation EP2 NVMe M.2 PCIe Gen 3x4 storage solution at Dell World 2015 in Austin, Texas.

In most datacenter environments, having an unacceptably high latency SSD might not be beneficial for some enterprise applications or usage. The importance of incorporating a high performing SSD, like Lite-On's EP2 ensures the fastest and most consistent command response times in the industry. With 4KB random read and 4KB write performance of up to 250K IOPS/25K IOPS and ultra-low latencies of 35/35 (µs) Lite-On's EP2 SSD is the right choice for many users looking to combat latency issues. Servers are well equipped to handle all high-performing SSDs and the importance of having such storage devices are favorable to host CPU efficiency for processing the I/Os.

The EP2 employs the NVMe protocol with Lite-On's proprietary firmware brings a unique approach to datacenter solutions. The EP2 supports high-performance computing (HPC), server virtualization, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), big data, and indexing. The EP2 offers power loss protection (PLP), scalability, end-to-end data protection, low power consumption, high endurance, and sustained performance. The M.2 solution can shrink your datacenter, as a high density drive it allows more SSDs to be integrated into a single server, and reduces total cost of ownership (TCO). With its lower power consumption and small form factor, less power and less cooling (airflow demand) are needed, which further reduces total cost of ownership (TCO). Lite-On End-to-End Data Protection conforms to the industry standard of T10 DIFF to protect against silent bit error.

"We are pleased to announce our EP2 NVMe M.2 PCIe SSD." said Darlo Perez, Lite-On's Managing Director. "As the need for storage and cloud computing solutions increase, companies are looking for ways to enhance their IT infrastructure to handle site traffic, email/messaging, OLTP, indexing, and many other applications. Lite-On is dedicated to focus our R&D in developing SSDs to reduce latency and increase performance by combining Lite-On's unique firmware. We will be able to reach data centers and a vast array of clients looking for high-performance solutions in the hyperscale and enterprise markets."

Lite-On will also be exhibiting its full range of client SSD solutions, which includes the CV3 and CX2 series SSDs. The CX2 series utilizes the latest NVMe M.2 PCIe Gen 3x4 solution for client PCs. With low latency, outstanding performance, the CX2 will be one of Lite-On's highest performing client drive designed specifically for the PC enthusiast and for workstations that have a high demand for storage solutions. Capacities will reach up to 1TB.

The CV3 series TLC SSD will be adopting a new controller with the low-density parity-check (LDPC) algorithm and TLC flash. By implementing the controller's LDPC error-correcting technology, Lite-On extends the CV3's using TLC endurance as much as 33%, hitting reliability levels previously only attainable with MLC flash.
