DC S3520 – a powerful 3D NAND SSD for read intensive workloads
With an increasing demand for real-time analytics data centers will require high-performance computing solutions. Intel can give data centers a competitive advantage with the Intel SSD S3520 Series. The S3520 is designed for data center, cloud and embedded usage segments and is an ideal choice for read intensive workloads, such as web server, analytics and databases. Moreover, in comparison to the predecessor Series, the S3520 has an increased endurance value of 1.0 DWPD (Daily Writes Per Day).
Intel 3D NAND SSDs
The SSD DC S3520 Series is part of the Intel 3D NAND SSD family of products. Being built on the 3D NAND flash technology, the DC S3520 Series helps to bridge the gap between warm tier and hot tier storage at a price comparable to HDDs. The S3520 Series delivers a level of IOPs per dollar that HDDs cannot touch and delivers the combination of data integrity, performance consistency, and drive reliability that you expect from Intel.
Increased Performance Per Watt
The DC S3520 Series has a much lower active write power, which translates to 35% more rack performance per watt compared to the SSD DC S3510. As a result of the lower power usage, data centers can fit roughly two times the number of drives in a 1.7kW rack. Even with the increase in rack density and performance, the power savings can be up to 46% above what was previously available with the DC S3510.
