Hot Plugging, which is a basic feature on traditional hard disks, uses the SATA interface. For IT Staff hired by an enterprise, pulling a hard drive out of the system, or even switching a hard drive from one computer to another is a normal thing to do. However, most hard disks that used the PCIe interface in the past did not support Hot Plugging. The first PCIe SSD came in the form of an Add-In-Card, which is installed and fixed into the card slot of the host in the same way as the display adapter or network card; this SSD type still does not support Hot Plugging. With the launch of the U.2 interface, it is now possible to install the PCIe SSD on the front panel of the server in the same way as a traditional SATA/SAS hard drive is installed; that means Hot Plugging is definitely essential to a server that cannot be shut down at any time and needs to operate continously.
The ADATA SR2000SP PCIe NVMe U.2 SSD supports Hot Plugging, offering convenience to customers for carrying out equipment maintenance, and different high-capacity specifications are available for customers to choose from.
