Based on Kioxia’s innovative BiCS FLASH™ 3D flash memory technology with 1-bit-per-cell SLC, XL-FLASH brings low latency and high performance to data center and enterprise storage. While volatile memory solutions such as DRAM provide the access speed needed by demanding applications, it comes at a high cost. SCM addresses this by providing high density, cost effective non-volatile flash memory.
The KIOXIA FL6 Series performs well on low queue depth workloads but its true strengths are revealed as workloads become more demanding and mixed. In these environments, KIOXIA FL6 drives deliver reliable quality of service – a critical attribute for a wide variety of latency-sensitive applications.
KIOXIA FL6 Series Highlights
PCIe 4.0 and NVMe 1.4 specification compliant; ready for NVMe-oF™ deployments
Native dual-port for high-availability and resiliency
60 DWPD endurance and capacities from 800 GB to 3.2 TB
Enterprise reliability of 2.5M hours MTBF
SED and FIPS 140-2 security options
The KIOXIA FL6 Series is now sampling to key industry partners and customers.
 Availability of security/encryption options may vary by region.
* Definition of capacity: Kioxia defines a megabyte (MB) as 1,000,000 bytes, a gigabyte (GB) as 1,000,000,000 bytes and a terabyte (TB) as 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1GB = 230 = 1,073,741,824 bytes and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system, such as Microsoft Operating System and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.

Kioxia is a world leader in memory solutions, dedicated to the development, production and sale of flash memory and solid-state drives (SSDs). In April 2017, its predecessor Toshiba Memory was spun off from Toshiba Corporation, the company that invented NAND flash memory in 1987. Kioxia is committed to uplifting the world with “memory” by offering products, services and systems that create choice for customers and memory-based value for society. Kioxia’s innovative 3D flash memory technology, BiCS FLASH™, is shaping the future of storage in high-density applications, including advanced smartphones, PCs, SSDs, automotive and data centers.
