U.2 refers to a specific form factor specification used for connecting solid-state drives (SSDs) to servers and enterprise storage systems. It was introduced by the Small Form Factor Committee (SFF) in September 2015, serving as an upgrade over previous form factors like 2.5-inch and mSATA. The main purpose of U.2 was to accommodate the faster and higher-capacity SSDs commonly used in data centers and enterprise environments.
The U.2 specification defines the physical dimensions and electrical characteristics of both the drive and the connector, ensuring compatibility and interchangeability across different manufacturers. U.2 drives typically come in a 2.5-inch form factor but utilize a distinct connector that differs from traditional SATA drives. This connector, known as the SFF-8639 standard, provides a hot-pluggable and high-speed interface between the SSD and the server system.
The adoption of U.2 drives brought several significant advancements to server and storage technology:
In summary, U.2 represents a significant technological advancement in server hard drives by providing a standardized solution that offers high performance, scalability, and reliability for enterprise environments. It effectively addresses the growing demands for storage capacity and speed in data centers and storage systems.
