Cloud Inspired. Optimized for Low Power Storage.

Key Benefits

  • Power-efficient SSD built for cloud storage architectures

  • Do more per server

  • Minimize service disruptions

  • Efficiently manage at scale



In December of 2021, Solidigm [], a subsidiary of SK hynix, acquired the NAND business from Intel Corporation, including the Intel® NAND SSD products. Legacy Intel materials will be provided until the transition is complete.

Designed to meet demanding service levels and support broader cloud workloads while reducing operational costs.

Built from the success of its cloud-inspired predecessor and architected with 64-layer Intel® 3D NAND Technology, the Intel® SSD DC P4511 Series delivers performance, quality of service (QoS), and capacity improvements to help optimize storage efficiency, enabling data centers to do more per server, minimize service disruptions, and efficiently manage at scale.

The PCIe* Intel® SSD DC P4511 Series is available in 1 TB and 2 TB in the M.2 (110mm) form factor, and in 4 TB in the E1.S form factor.

Power-Efficient SSD Built for Cloud Storage Architectures

Multi-cloud has become a core element for any enterprise strategy, and top cloud providers have responded by openly embracing PCIe*/NVMe*-based SSDs with scalable performance, low latency, and continued innovation.

As software-defined and converged infrastructures are swiftly adopted, the need increases to maximize efficiency, revitalize existing hardware, deploy new workloads, and yet reduce operational expenditures.

Do More per Server

The Intel® SSD DC P4511 Series, with 64-layer 3D NAND technology and M.2 and E1.S form factors, increases server agility and utilization, and accelerates applications across a wide range of cloud workloads.1 2 3 The SSD DC P4511 delivers up to 5x faster read bandwidth, up to 1.5x performance/watt, and up to 3.4x reduction of service time at QoS metric of 99.99% availability for random access workload.1 2 3 Better QoS is ensured with an intelligent firmware algorithm that keeps host and background data reads and writes at an optimum balance.

Minimize Service Disruptions

To ensure telemetry information without disrupting ongoing I/Os, the SSD DC P4511 includes enhanced SMART monitoring of drive health and status, using an in-band mechanism and out-of-band access. A power loss imminent (PLI) protection scheme with a built-in self-test guards against data loss if system power is suddenly cut.

Coupled with industry-leading end-to-end data path protection scheme, PLI features enables ease of deployment into resilient data centers where data corruption from system-level glitches is not tolerated.4 The DC P4511 combines firmware enhancements with 3D NAND features to prioritize host workload and meet service levels.

Enable a dynamic range of solutions with scalable, flexible, powerful, and thermally efficient E1.S Intel® SSDs. The form factor designed for high-volume hyperscale increases system flexibility and storage density while optimizing capacity. Built-in serviceability and thermal efficiency enable scale while reducing costs and increasing reliability.

Efficiently Manage at Scale

To help data centers make the most of increased SSD capacity per server, dynamic namespace management delivers the flexibility to permit more users and scale deployment.

With the capability to manage multiple firmware versions on a drive and to support updates without a reset, the SSD DC P4511 improves integration and increases the ease and efficiency of deploying at scale.

Source - Intel. End-to-end data protection refers to the set of methods used to detect and correct the integrity of data across the full path as it is read or written between the host and the SSD controller and media. Claim is based on average of Intel drive error rates vs. average of competitor drive error rates. Neutron radiation is used to determine silent data corruption rates and as a measure of overall end-to-end data protection effectiveness. Silent errors were measured at run-time and at post-reboot after a drive “hang” by comparing expected data vs actual data returned by drive. The annual rate of data corruption was projected from the rate during accelerated testing divided by the acceleration of the beam (see JEDEC standard JESD89A).
