Intel® SSD Pro 1500 Series User Experience Reference Design
Determining the stability of customers’ computers can be difficult for IT departments, whether in-house or contracted, and reliably tracking the health of those systems’ hard disk drives can be particularly challenging. IT shops must gather data from the drives and take proactive measures to ensure their customers don’t experience downtime.
Using McAfee Real Time Command and Intel® Setup and Configuration Software with SSD Pro Series Plug-in dynamic link library (DLL), available in Intel® Setup and Configuration Software (Intel® SCS) version 9, IT professionals can more effectively track the drive health of Intel® SSD Pro 1500 Series Opal*-compliant drives and take proactive measures to reduce customer downtime. IT professionals can use the Intel SCS with SSD Pro Series Plug-in DLL and Real Time Command to prepare systems for new drives in advance, and migrate data from targeted systems while users are still working, thus reducing user impact for maintenance and preemptive repair.
