The Intel® Storage System RAF1000JSP provides an innovative solution to address key storage challenges around capacity and performance. Featuring the revolutionary “ruler” form factor for Intel® SDDs, the Intel® Storage System RAF1000JSP is designed to offer unparalleled density, powerful system performance, and compelling total cost of ownership (TCO) for today’s most demanding storage scenarios.
The Intel® Storage System RAF1000JSP is launching soon!
Pack 256 TB in a 1U server at launch and 1 PB in 1U in the near future.
Maximize system level performance with up to 32 ruler form factor Intel® SSDs in a single 1U system.
Lower CapEx and achieve 6x rack consolidation while reducing SSD power consumption compared with a standard 2U server.2
Available as an integrated system, with the option to select the ruler quantity and capacity to meet your unique workload needs.
An SSD Revolution. New “Ruler” Form Factor for Intel® SSDs
Designed from the ground up to optimize rack efficiency, the new ruler form factor delivers unparalleled space-efficient capacity, operationally-efficient design and scalable manageability.
- Storage density-optimized design delivers higher per drive and per server capacity
- Up to 55% more thermally efficient than 15mm U.23
- Front loading and hot-swappable to simplify manageability and serviceability

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.
