Intel® SSD Data Center Family for PCIe* provides breakthrough performance to modernize data center storage from an industry leader. Features Breakthrough Performance
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 1.9GB/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. Servers can now support more users simultaneously, compute on larger data sets, and address high-performance computing at lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
Modernizes Data Center Storage
Intel led the industry in creation of a new Non-Volatile Memory Express* (NVMe*) storage interface standard. NVMe* is engineered for current and future Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) technologies, unlike SAS/SATA SSDs. NVMe* overcomes SAS/SATA SSD performance limitations by optimizing hardware and software to take full advantage of NVM SSD technology. Intel Xeon processors efficiently transfer data in fewer clock cycles with the NVMe* optimized software stack compared to the legacy Advance Host Controller Interface (AHCI) stack, reducing latency and overhead. Direct CPU connection also eliminates Host-Bus-Adapter (HBA) cards, further reducing latency and TCO.
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. The Intel SSD DC Family for PCIe* includes the Intel® Solid-State Drive Data Center P3700, P3600, and P3500 Series providing a full range of endurance up to 10 full-capacity writes per day, capacity up to 2TB, and 2.5” and Add-In-Card (AIC) form-factors. Intel-enabled NVMe* software drivers are provided by major operating system vendors including Microsoft* Server 2012 and 2008, Red Hat* 6.5, UEFI* 2.3.1, and the Linux* Open Source development community. The new 2.5” form-factor with hot-swap capability provides convenient front panel serviceability allowing quick, uninterrupted installation. The AIC form-factor conveniently fits in half-height, half-length slots.
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. By combining SSD NAND management techniques and NAND silicon enhancements, High Endurance Technology (HET) enables the DC P3700 Series to achieve 10 drive writes per day over a 5 year drive life. Intel® SSD Data Center Tool, available at www.intel.com/design/flash/nand/managessd.htm, provides a powerful set of management capabilities.

Perhaps the best PC innovation in the last 10 years has been the solid-state drive (SSD) used to store the operating system and programs on your computer. SSDs have begun to replace the older mechanical disks as the primary storage for the PC and it's not hard to see why.
Date Issued: 7th Apr 2015
One of the greatest advances for PCs in recent years has been the introduction of solid-state drives (SSD). These storage drives hold information on flash memory that is managed by a processing chip called a controller. Advantages of SSDs over traditional spinning disks are numerous, from silent operation, lower power to significantly faster performance.
