Intel has introduced two new server SSDs that provide up to four terabytes of storage space with 3D NAND flash.
The new SSD series DC P4500 and DC P4600 set on TLC memory with 3D NAND flash. Up to now, SSDs with SLC or MLC memory have been used in server environments since they are considered to be significantly more durable. Intel guarantees a high reliability with the new SSDs with less than one uncorrectable error per 10 high 17 bits read. The SSDs of the DC-P4500 and DC-P4600 series are offered as PCIe cards with NVEn connection and optionally also in 2.5 “format with U.2 connection.
With storage capacities of up to four terabytes, the new SSD series from Intel are also recommended for cloud environments. In addition to the high capacity, the SSDs can also offer high transfer rates of up to 3,280 MB / s for sequential reading and 2,100 MB per second for sequential writing. The IOPS are given in the case of random read and write operations with 702,500 or 257,000 IOPS.
The prices for the new SSDs with storage capacities of one to four terabytes have not yet been announced.
