Discover the Intel® SSD Data Center Family for PCIe*
The Intel® Solid-State Drive Data Center Family for PCIe* brings extreme data throughput directly to Intel® Xeon® processors with up to six times faster data transfer speed than 6 Gbps SAS/SATA SSDs.1 The performance of a single drive from the Intel SSD Data Center Family for PCIe, specifically the Intel® Solid-State Drive Data Center P3700 Series (460K IOPS), can replace the performance of seven SATA SSDs aggregated through a host bus adapter (HBA) (approximately 500K IOPS).
Modernizes data center storage
Intel led the industry in creation of a new Non-Volatile Memory Express* (NVMe) storage interface standard. NVMe overcomes SAS/SATA SSD performance limitations by optimizing hardware and software to take full advantage of NVM SSD technology.
Intel is driving transition to NVMe SSDs by providing a comprehensive product line, enabling extensive system compatibility, delivering Intel® drivers as well as supporting industry driver development, and completing numerous industry-standard compliance certifications.
Proven quality and reliability
Intel SSD Data Center Family for PCIe devices are based on Intel®-developed controller, firmware, and leading manufacturing process NAND flash memory. Rigorous qualification and compatibility testing ensures a highly reliable SSD. The Intel® SSD Data Center Tool provides a powerful set of management capabilities.
Tests document performance of components on a particular test, in specific systems. Differences in hardware, software, or configuration will affect actual performance. Configurations: Performance claims obtained from data sheet, sequential read/write at 128k block size for NVMe and SATA, 64k for SAS. Intel SSD DC P3700 Series 2TB, SAS Ultrastar® SSD1600MM, Intel SSD DC S3700 Series SATA 6Gbps. Intel Core i7-3770K CPU @ 3.50GHz, 8GB of system memory, Windows* Server 2012, IOMeter. Random performance is collected with 4 workers each with 32 QD.
Performance varies by capacity.
