Why Choose a Data Center Class Solid-State DriveThe Data Center Solutions team, within the Intel Non-Volatile Memory Solutions Group (NSG), has recently received a number of questions from end users about the differences between Intel® SSD Data Center Family and Intel® SSD Consumer Family solid-state drives. End users often express a desire to use the less expensive client/consumer drive, specifically the Intel® Solid-State Drive (SSD) 530 Series client drive in place of the Intel® SSD Data Center S3500 Series drive in their data center environments.

For this exercise, the specification sheets listed below and some estimated web pricing for the 80GB versions of these drives will be used as a reference. The smallest common size of drive will be discussed to highlight the differences between the two classes of devices. At this capacity point the GB/day in write endurance is similar, which is normally what spawns this discussion.Read the full Why Choose a Data Center Class Solid-State Drive Technology Brief.
