Intel expands its 3D NAND flash-based solid state drives for data centres as Intel launches two new cloud infrastructure-oriented 3D NAND SSDs – the Intel DC P4500 and P4600 Series SSDs. Both the P4500 Series and P4600 Series SSDs use Triple Level Cell or “TLC” 3D NAND flash with Intel’s ground-breaking density for increased capacities and performance. Together with this is a plethora of cloud-inspired features which includes unique firmware innovations, a newly developed Intel controller and the benefits of PCIe-NVMe interface.

The new Intel DC P4500 and P4600 Series in the Intel arsenal of data centre SSDs offer a perfect harmony of performance, manageability, capacity and reliability. The unique features will accelerate the move to software defined storage with effective scaling, increase efficiency of data centres and reduce the total cost of ownership while improving service levels.

Intel DP P4500 Series
These new Intel SSDs uses 3D NAND and is optimized for cloud infrastructure applications. With the P4500, data centres can store more data and get more value out of the data servers as workloads get more optimized. The P4500 Series SSDs are available in half-length add-in-card and U.2 2.5-inch form factors. Capacities available for AIC is 4TB only while the 2.5-inch U.2 SSD form factors can be found in capacities 1TB, 2TB and 4TB.

Intel DP P4600 Series
The P4600 also uses TLC 3D NAND but is optimized for mixed workloads. With the P4600 Series SSDs, increase workloads queued per server and accelerate caching for improved performance. The P4600 is available in half-length add-in-card and 2.5-inch U.2 SSD form factors as well. AICs are available in 2TB and 4TB capacities, 2.5-inch U.2 form factor available in 1.2TB, 2TB and 3.2TB capacities.
