In December of 2021, Solidigm [www.solidigmtechnology.com], 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.
Replace HDDs with the highly-efficient Intel® SSD D3-S4520 and Intel® SSD D3-S4620 to reduce storage operating costs and accelerate read-intensive and mixed-use workloads with power-efficient performance.
Featuring the latest-generation 144-Layer, TLC, Intel® 3D NAND, Intel® SSD D3-S4520 and D3-S4620 Series are designed to reduce storage operating cost, accelerate read-intensive and mixed workloads with power-efficient performance, and improve overall system reliability and flexibility, while preserving legacy infrastructure.
These reliable SSDs meet demanding service level requirements while increasing server efficiency. The fourth-generation Intel controller and innovative firmware paired with the latest generation of Intel® 3D NAND make the SSD D3-S4520 and D3-S4620 Series compatible with existing SATA deployments for an easy storage upgrade.
Reduce Operating Costs While Preserving Infrastructure Investment
Built for compatibility with legacy infrastructures, the SSD D3-S4520 and D3-S4620 reduce the costs associated with modernizing your data center. Available in a variety of capacities from 240GB up to 7.68TB, and in standard 2.5-inch and M.2 80mm form factors, the larger capacity drives consume up to 5x lower power and have up to 5x lower cooling requirements than 2.5-inch HDDs.1 The SSD D3-S4520 also enables 3.2x more data to be stored in the same amount of space.2
Accelerate Read-Intensive Workloads with Power-Efficient Performance
Simply by integrating SSDs into the environment, organizations can improve server agility with up to 245x more IOPS/TB than HDDs,3 supporting more users and better services to grow the business without expanding the server footprint. The SSD D3-S4520 & D3-S4620 are up to 6.7x more bandwidth-efficient in sequential workloads as well,4 allowing an upgrade to hybrid or all-flash to more easily fit within existing cooling solutions.
Additionally, the Flex Workload feature enables a common drive type to cover more workloads with flexible capacity, endurance, and power-efficient performance.
Improve System Reliability and Flexibility
The reliability of the SSD D3-S4520 and D3-S4620 reduces the need for drive replacement that is necessary with HDDs. With an actual annualized failure rate (AFR) up to 1.9x lower than HDDs,5 IT departments will spend less time and expense replacing or upgrading storage devices. Equally important, once the SSDs are installed, the innovative SATA firmware completes updates without reset, reducing downtime.
Minimize Service Disruptions
For years, Intel has been a leader in providing trusted data center SSDs that maximize data continuity in enterprise and cloud data centers. That reputation continues with the SSD D3-S4520 and D3-S4620 and their key capabilities that help ensure more uptime:
- Consistently delivers durable performance to optimize service level continuity
- End-to-end data protection helps keep data safe—even in the event of a sudden power loss
- Up to 1.9x lower annualized failure rates (AFR) means fewer drive replacements5
- Innovative firmware completes updates without server reset, reducing downtime
- Simplified configurations reduce risk of component failure and streamline maintenance
