Intel has launched the Solid-State Drive 910 Series, a high-performing SSD to address rigorous data centre storage demands driven by cloud computing, virtualisation and online transactions.
Intel says the SSD 910 Series delivers accelerated storage performance, endurance and reliability critical to today’s data centre performance applications.
It includes Intel High Endurance Technology and optimised multi-level cell (MLC) 25-nanometer NAND flash memory, that allows up to 10 full drive writes a day for five years, or a 30x endurance improvement over its standard MLC-based flash products, for a cost-effective storage solution.
The Intel SSD 910 is PCIe-based and is aimed at offering an easy-to-install, seamless post-deployment server storage upgrade that requires no changes to existing server design. It can be used in storage tiering and caching of hot files for high-performance processing and access to mission-critical data.
