Intel – Professional NVMe PCIe SSD’s

The Intel® Solid-State Drive (SSD) 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.

The Intel SSD DC Family for PCIe is capable of reading data up to 2.8GB/s and 460k Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPS) and writing up to 2.0GB/s and 175k IOPS.

The performance of a single drive from the Intel SSD DC Family for PCIe, specifically the Intel® Solid-State Drive Data Center P3700 Series (460K IOPS), can replace the performance of 7 SATA SSDs aggregated through an HBA (~500K IOPS). At 200 IOPS per Hard Disk Drive (HDD), 2,300 15K HDDs would be needed to match the performance of one Intel SSD DC Family for PCIe device.

Intel SSD DC Family for PCIe’s consistently amazing performance provides fast, unwavering data streams directly to Intel Xeon processors making server data transfers efficient. SSD performance consistency provides scalable throughput when multiple SSDs are unified into a single storage volume. The massive storage bandwidth increase feeds Intel Xeon processor systems giving data center servers a performance boost.
