Intel launches 2TB PCI-e enterprise-oriented SSD line
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.<br />
<br />
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.<br />
<br />
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.<br />
<br />
The Intel SSD Data Center Family for PCIe will be offered in 400GB, 800GB, 1.2TB, 1.6TB and 2TB, starting at $560.
