Swissbit Products for Data Center Applications

A staggering amount of cloud applications, each with an ever-increasing individual complexity is covered by one-size-fits-all SSD solutions provided by the mainstream market. Under real world workloads, a standard Data Center SSD degrades by 50-75% over a period of 4-10 months. Cloud service providers are confronted with significant reduction of performance and increased latency that do not meet the service levels required by end customers. Additionally increased cost for early replacement of the storage SSD and additional service costs reduces the profitability of datacenters. Hence, there is significant potential to improve efficiency.


Mainstream market SSD

Swissbit Data Center SSD


Optimized for FoB peak performance
Inconsistent performance over the lifetime of the SSD

2x - 5x times better consistent steady state performance over the entire lifetime of the SSD


Datasheet endurance not achievable in real life conditions

2x greater SSD endurance compared to mainstream-market solutions


Unpredictable latency behavior with significant spikes impacting application responsiveness

Consistent low latency resulting in reliable and predictable service levels

Use case

One-size-fits-all, emulation of HDD benchmark tests

Optimized for real-world workloads in cloud applications

Data Center applications with varying requirements

Big Data and Cloud Computing

Big Data

Deep analysis of captured and stored data requires high amount of fast storage with parallel operation of writes and reads. The data size depends highly of the data source.

Streaming Technology

Video Streaming & Production

Video streaming is a steadily growing business replacing traditional TV. Massive amounts of data is written once and read with multiple streams in parallel.

Machine Learning

Machine Learning

Machine learning takes a multitude of training data samples to build an optimized model that can be used to identify conditions and decide on actions.


Artificial Intelligence

AI or artificial intelligence is closely connected to machine learning and covers the analysis of data, the evaluation of scenarios and the resulting reactions.



The Internet of Things stands for a myriad of different applications. Data Centers are used at the edge where preprocessed data needs to be stored for further analysis or documentation.

Computational Storage

Computational Storage

Computational storage shall offload processing tasks from the CPU and perform parallel operations within the storage. This new field of data processing requires dedicated computing elements within the storage device.

Overall Performance

Swissbit Datacenter SSDs deliver outstanding mixed performance values compared to leading SSD solutions from mainstream datacenter SSD suppliers. In mixed workloads and respective preconditioning the Swissbit drives show significant advantages in sequential write (MB/s) as well as random write and read (IOPS). This allows datacenter to deliver cloud services at highest quality of service to their end customers.

White Paper

Are the solid-state drives (SSDs) in your data center suffering from inconsistent latency, intermittent latency spikes, significant performance drops after only weeks or months, and early device failures? Advanced high-performance applications, including virtual machines, AI and machine learning, or big data analytics, put stress on SSDs beyond what they experience in simplistic production tests designed decades ago for hard-disk drives (HDDs).

In this White Paper, you will learn more about the background of SSD optimization and the unique Swissbit approach that improves performance, latency, and endurance.
