Intel® Optane™ SSD DC P4800X Series

World’s most responsive1 data center SSD.

Solve the Most Demanding Memory and Storage Challenges

Delivering an industry-leading combination of low latency, ultra endurance, high QoS, and high throughput, the Intel® Optane™ SSD DC P4800X Series is the most responsive data center SSD.1 Built with the revolutionary new 3D XPoint™ memory media, the SSD DC P4800X is the first product to combine the attributes of memory and storage. This innovative solution is optimized to break through storage bottlenecks by providing a new data tier. It accelerates applications for fast caching and storage, increases scale per server, and reduces transaction costs for latency sensitive workloads. In addition, data centers can now also deploy bigger and more affordable data sets to gain new insights from large memory pools.

High throughput, low latency, high QoS, and ultra endurance: The Intel® Optane™ SSD DC P4800X solves the most challenging memory and storage demands.
