Aerospike Database is optimized to run on flash and SSD devices and is capable of delivering high throughput and low latency over flash.

“At Aerospike, we value collaborative industry efforts with companies such as KIOXIA to continually improve our products,” said Paul Jensen, Vice President of Technology and Infrastructure Partners for Aerospike. “By working with KIOXIA and testing the application hotfix, we have achieved a noticeable improvement in application performance in our Community Edition database.”

Featuring the KIOXIA SCM, XL-FLASH™ solution, the PCIe ® 4.0 and NVMe 1.4 compliant KIOXIA FL6 series SSDs bridge the gap between DRAM and TLC drives, making them well suited for use cases latency sensitive such as caching layer, prioritization and write logging. Currently in mass production, dual-ported FL6 drives offer high endurance (60 DWPD 2 ) and are available in capacities up to 3,200 gigabytes 3.

“KIOXIA has developed the broadest portfolio of SSD products for the data center, and we are committed to creating innovative storage solutions that improve storage latency and application performance,” said Neville Ichhaporia, vice president of SSD Marketing and Product Management, KIOXIA America, Inc. “By working closely with Aerospike, KIOXIA has not only developed a unique and differentiated SSD solution, but has also developed and contributed to software innovations that dramatically improve application performance on our low latency FL6 series SCM SSDs.”

Detailed Aerospike test results will be presented at KIOXIA’s keynote, and a demonstration will take place at KIOXIA’s booth at next month’s Flash Memory Summit. For more information, visit

1: Tested by KIOXIA in May 2022 with Aerospike-SPDK patch, using Aerospike Community Edition test tool (i.e. 1.5 KB, mixed R/W workload) and four read requests are grouped together.

2: DWPD: write(s) to drive per day. One full disk write per day means the disk can be written to and rewritten at full capacity once a day for five years, the stated product warranty period. Actual results may vary due to system configuration, usage and other factors. Read and write speed may vary depending on host device, read and write conditions and file size.

3: Capacity definition: KIOXIA Corporation defines megabyte (MB) as 1,000,000 bytes, gigabyte (GB) as 1,000,000,000 bytes, and 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 1 GB = 2^30 bits = 1,073,741,824 bits, 1 GB = 2^30 bytes = 1,073,741,824 bytes and 1TB = 2^40 bytes = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes and hence shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary depending on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system and/or pre-installed software applications or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.
