NVMe-oF™ Ethernet SSD Controller

Enabling a new class of enterprise and data center SSDs that will significantly lower total cost of ownership

NVMe-oF SSD Controllers

The Marvell® 88SS5000 is an NVMe over Fabrics™ (NVMe-oF™) SSD controller supporting single and dual port 25Gb RoCE v2 (RDMA over Converged Ethernet) functionality. This breakthrough solution is designed to enable a new class of enterprise and data center SSDs that will significantly lower total cost of ownership. The controller is powered by Marvell’s fourth generation NANDEdge™ LDPC error correction technology, providing support for 3D NAND TLC and QLC technologies, and extending SSD lifetime while maintaining best-in-class latency and performance consistency. With its innovative processor architecture, the 88SS5000 can enable up to 3GB/s of throughput, up to 650k of random IOPS, 8 NAND channels and up to 8GB DRAM. The Marvell NVMe-oF SSD controller also supports industry-leading TB capacities and is optimized for power, performance and cost, enabling a range of SSD storage solutions including EDSFF (E.1L and E.1M), U.2, and custom form factors.
