00LY327 00LY589 IBM 5B16 775GB Enterprise SSD 5xx SFF-2 ES79 ESG6 EL78 ESB2 ESGV ES78 ELG5 ESG5

The IBM 5B16 775GB SFF-2 SSD is a fourth generation sold state drive with eMLC4 technology, formatted with 528 byte sectors, has 00LY327 00LY589 part numbers and supported on IBM i, AIX and Linux ServersPower9 and Power8 Systems with a IBM EXP24S (5887 or EL1S) or EXP24SX (ESLS) I/O drawer, which can contain up to 24 SSDs to provide up to 37.2 TB of flash memory technology storage. The IBM 5B17 775GB Enterprise SSD can have ES79 ESG6 EL78 ESB2 ESGV ES78 ELG5 ESG5 feature codes, but are identical SSDs with the same 00LY327 00LY589 part numbers. The different feature codes are used by IBM configuration tools to specify which OS type, drive format and carrier tray is needed for the installation of the solid state drive.

The 2.5-inch fourth generation IBM SSDs with eMLC4 require the correct carrier tray for installation. IBM eMLC4 solid state drives can be installed in SFF-3 SAS bays of a IBM Power System CEC or SFF-2 SAS bays in IBM EXP24S (5887 or EL1S) or EXP24SX (ESLS) I/O drawer, providing up to 24 SSDs for 37.2 TB of flash memory technology storage. Other fourth generation IBM SSDs with eMLC4 technology are below:

As with earlier IBM enterprise SSDs, these solid state drives are designed to deliver great endurance and reliability. These 4th generation enterprise class eMLC SSDs were tested to provide 24x7x365 usage running write-intensive levels for about five years. Actual customer writes will be much lower, and thus the SSD life span will be much longer. Similar to the eMLC3 SSDs, the new SSDs provide a Drive Write Per Day (DWPD) rating of approximately "10", which estimates the number of times the SSD's capacity could be written per day over the projected life of the drive. The new eMLC4 SAS SSDs provide significantly improved price/performance compared to previous eMLC3 SSDs. eMLC4 SSD performance is improved over previous generations of Power eMLC SSDs. Compared to the eMLC3 SSDs, the new eMLC4 drives offer improved input/output operations per second (IOPS), throughput, and latency. For example, measurements show:
 
Up to 50% higher maximum IOPS value for random mixed read/write workloads
Up to 750 MBps while reading from the drive or up to 470 MBps while writing to the drive
Up to 20% better latency running a random mixed read/write workload (down to a 0.12 ms latency)
 
IBM Power eMLC flash memory provides enterprise-class performance and reliability characteristics. The new fourth-generation eMLC SSDs build upon a heritage of performance and endurance to provide a better value proposition to users of Power8 and Power7 servers. They provide SAS 6 Gbps capability, but are designed to be 12 Gbps compliant if future SAS adapters support 12 Gbps capability.
 
Note: IBM 4k drives cannot be reformatted to 5xx drives (or vice versa). IBM is transitioning away from manufacturing SAS Hard Disk Drives (HDD) and Solid State Drives (SSD) formatted with 512 and 528-byte sector (5xx), and instead will only be providing 4K byte sector drives. Although most AIX and Linux applications will not experience issues since data access to the SAS drives is via a file system, companies should confirm with their application provider to ensure compatibility with using SSD or HDD with 4K byte sectors. AIX and Linux applications that require direct access to the raw data on the SSD or HDD, may require 512 and 528-byte sector (5xx) sectors drives.
