Source – Intel. Comparing maximum capacity per 1 rack unit of Intel® Server Board S2600WP Family, 24 U.2 bay option using 4TB U.2 15mm Intel® SSD DC P4500 Series to 8 TB Intel® Storage System RAF1000JSP Server design, 32 “ruler” drive bays using 8 TB “ruler” form factor for Intel® SSD DC P4500 Series.


Source – Intel. Comparing airflow required to maintain equivalent temperature of a 4TB U.2 15mm Intel® SSD DC P4500 Series to a 4TB “ruler” form factor for Intel® SSD DC P4500 Series. Results have been estimated or simulated using internal analysis or architecture simulation or modeling, and provided for informational purposes. Simulation involves 3 drives for each form factor in a sheet metal representation of a server, 12.5mm pitch for “Ruler” form factor, 1000m elevation, limiting SSD on case temp of 70C or thermal throttling performance, whichever comes first. 5C guardband.
