Solid-state drives (SSDs) serve an integral role in data acceleration and optimizing storage for an efficient data center. With increasing demands for lower latency and faster throughput, data center SSDs are designed for workload performance. As flash memory technology continues to evolve, SSD design choices should be specific to requirements of a data center application workload to maximize storage optimization in delivering value that can ultimately tie to bottom line improvement.
The S3500 SATA MLC Enterprise Value SSDs for IBM® System x® are designed for read-intensive application workloads such as internet, content delivery, and data analytics. The SSDs feature the newest Intel controller and leading-edge 20 nm MLC flash technology that delivers efficient and consistent high performance for the data center.
