Intel today announced a line of solid-state drives (SSDs) utilizing PCI Express (PCIe) with NVM Express (NVMe) technology for substantial performance gains over SATA SSDs and traditional hard disk drives. The Intel Solid-State Drive Data Center Family for PCIe is tailored towaard data center operations and includes the Intel SSD DC P3700 Series for write-intensive applications, Intel SSD DC P3600 Series for mixed workloads and Intel SSD DC P3500 Series for read-heavy uses.

The Intel SSD Data Center Family for PCIe uses the PCIe 3.0 specification and a new high-performance PCIe interface controller architected with NVMe. This technology is designed to deliver high performance to overcome storage bottlenecks in the data center. NVMe technology was designed with PCIe-based SSDs in mind, eliminating much of the latency caused by legacy HDD interfaces.

The Intel SSD Data Center Family for PCIe will come in a small 2.5-inch form factor (SFF-8639) for hot-swappable front panel serviceability and an add-in card form factor for broad compatibility with existing PCIe-based systems. The drives have an average mean time between failures of two million hours. The P3700 Series offers 10 full-drive writes per day over the life of the drive, totaling 36 petabytes, or 459 years of high-definition video. For less-demanding sequential workloads, the P3600 Series delivers three drive writes per day, and the P3500 Series offers 0.3 drive writes per day.

The Intel SSD Data Center Family for PCIe will be offered in 400GB, 800GB, 1.2TB, 1.6TB and 2TB, starting at $560.
