Achieves 3GB of sustained data throughput per second, claims company
Micron Technology has unveiled a new portfolio of PCI Express (PCIe) solid-state storage systems, the RealSSD P320h solid-state drive (SSD) series.
The new RealSSD P320h series provides data-intensive enterprise apps storage requirements including cloud computing, high-performance computing, data analytics, business intelligence, and video on demand.
The P320h system uses Micron’s 34-nanometer (nm) single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash memory technology, which provides two different user capacities: 350GB and 700GB. The offerings achieves 3GB of sustained data throughput per second, the company said.
The company also said that the performance of the P320h system is equivalent to the amount of IOPS an Exchange server would need to support more than 1.5 million Outlook users.
The P320h features Micron’s proprietary redundant array of independent NAND (RAIN) management technology that is designed to ensure enterprise-class data protection by replicating data across the NAND flash memory channels.
The storage offering also provides enterprise-class levels of endurance with the 700GB drive able to write 28 terabytes of data every day for five years, the company said.
Micron NAND solutions group enterprise division general manager Gary Gentry said the company is defining a new category of enterprise-class storage with their P320h PCIe solid-state storage systems that provides customers with compelling performance offering in the industry.
