â€“ The Intel Solid-State Drive Data Center Family for PCIe brings extreme data throughput directly to Intel Xeon processors with up to six times faster data transfer speed than 6 Gbps SAS/SATA SSDs. The performance of a single drive from the Intel SSD Data Center Family for PCIe, specifically the Intel Solid-State Drive Data Center P3700 Series (460K IOPS), can replace the performance of 7 SATA SSDs aggregated through a host bus adapter (HBA) (approximately 500K IOPS).
Modernizes data center storage
â€“ Intel led the industry in creation of a new Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) storage interface standard. NVMe overcomes SAS/SATA SSD performance limitations by optimizing hardware and software to take full advantage of NVM SSD technology.
â€“ Intel is driving transition to NVMe SSDs by providing a comprehensive product line, enabling extensive system compatibility, delivering Intel drivers as well as supporting industry driver development, and completing numerous industry standard compliance certifications.
Proven quality and reliability
â€“ Intel SSD Data Center Family for PCIe devices are based on Intel-developed controller, firmware, and leading manufacturing process NAND flash memory. Rigorous qualification and compatibility testing ensures a highly reliable SSD. The Intel SSD Data Center Tool provides a powerful set of management capabilities.
