Product Overview

Storage Inspired. Infrastructure Optimised

Replace HDDs with the highly-efficient Intel® SSD D3-S4520 to reduce storage operating costs and accelerate read-intensive and mixed-use workloads with power-efficient performance.

Featuring the latest-generation 144-Layer, TLC, Intel® 3D NAND, Intel® D3-S4520 Series are designed to reduce storage operating cost, accelerate read-intensive and mixed workloads with power-efficient performance, and improve overall system reliability and flexibility, while preserving legacy infrastructure.

These reliable SSDs meet demanding service level requirements while increasing server efficiency. The fourth-generation Intel controller and innovative firmware paired with the latest generation of Intel® 3D NAND make the SSD D3-S4520 Series compatible with existing SATA deployments for an easy storage upgrade.

Reduce Operating Costs While Preserving Infrastructure Investment

Built for compatibility with legacy infrastructures, the SSD D3-S4520 reduce the costs associated with modernizing your data centre. Available in a variety of capacities up to 7.68TB, and in standard 2.5-inch form factor, the larger capacity drives consume up to 5x lower power and have up to 5x lower cooling requirements than 2.5-inch HDDs.

Accelerate Read-Intensive Workloads with Power-Efficient Performance

Simply by integrating SSDs into the environment, organisations can improve server agility with up to 245x more IOPS/TB than HDDs, supporting more users and better services to grow the business without expanding the server footprint. The SSD D3-S4520 are up to 6.7x more bandwidth-efficient in sequential workloads as well, allowing an upgrade to hybrid or all-flash to more easily fit within existing cooling solutions.

Additionally, the Flex Workload feature enables a common drive type to cover more workloads with flexible capacity, endurance, and power-efficient performance.

Improve System Reliability and Flexibility

The reliability of the D3-S4520 reduces the need for drive replacement that is necessary with HDDs. With an actual annualised failure rate (AFR) up to 1.9x lower than HDDs, IT departments will spend less time and expense replacing or upgrading storage devices. Equally important, once the SSDs are installed, the innovative SATA firmware completes updates without reset, reducing downtime.

Minimise Service Disruptions

For years, Intel has been a leader in providing trusted data centre SSDs that maximise data continuity in enterprise and cloud data centres. That reputation continues with the SSD D3-S4520 and their key capabilities that help ensure more uptime:

• Consistently delivers durable performance to optimise service level continuity.
• End-to-end data protection helps keep data safe-even in the event of a sudden power loss.
• Up to 1.9x lower annualized failure rates (AFR) means fewer drive replacements.
• Innovative firmware completes updates without server reset, reducing downtime.
• Simplified configurations reduce risk of component failure and streamline maintenance.


• Compatible with existing SATA setups for an easy storage upgrade.
• Up to 5x lower power & 5x lower cooling requirement than 2.5-inch HDDs.
• 3.2x more data in the same amount of space.
• Up to 1.9x lower annualised failure rates (AFR) lower than HDDs..
• Up to 245x more IOPS/TB than HDDs.
• Up to 6.7x more bandwidth-efficient in sequential workloads.

The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster

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.
