Intel® Solid-State Drive Data Center Family for PCIe*

Consistently amazing

Breakthrough performance – 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.1 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 – 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.

Comprehensive solution – 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 – 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.
