Intel®´s DC S4500 and S4600 – fitted with deep feature sets and the newest 3D-NAND Flash Technology
The S4500 and S4600 – the newest members of the 2nd generation of 3D NAND SSD family – are a storage inspired SSD series that enable data centers to reduce costs, increase server efficiency, minimize service disruptions and enable data centers to optimize legacy infrastructures. This is achieved by implementing, among other features, a new Intel-developed SATA controller, innovative SATA firmware, and the industry’s highest density 3D NAND.
Reduce cost with infrastructure compatibility
Built for compatibility in legacy infrastructures, the SSD DC S4500 and DC S4600 Series with a SATA interface enable easy storage upgrades that minimize the costs associated with modernizing your data center. These latest generation enterprise-grade SSDs reduce power demand and cooling requirements by up to 3.2x, lowering operational costs that scale across the data center.
Increase server efficiency and do more per server
Based on TLC Intel® 3D NAND technology, the SSD DC S4500 and DC S4600 Series offer a variety of capacities, from 240GB up to 4TB, in a standard 2.5-inch form factor. With larger capacities, data centers can significantly increase data stored per rack unit versus standard 2.5-inch, 2TB HDDs. Simply by integrating SSDs into the environment, IT can improve server agility with up to 209x more IOPS/TB, supporting more users and greater services to grow the business without expanding the server footprint.
Improve data reliability
With a 3.2x lower Annualized Failure Rate (AFR) compared to HDDs, IT departments will spend less time and expense replacing or upgrading storage devices. Intel® SATA SSDs install seamlessly so you can reduce risk of component failures. Equally important, once the SSDs are installed, the innovative SATA firmware completes updates without reset and reduces downtime.
Minimize service disruptions
For years, Intel has been a leader in providing trusted data center SSDs that maximize data continuity in enterprise and cloud data centers. That reputation continues with the DC S4500 and DC S4600 Series with key capabilities that help ensure more uptime:
- Consistently delivers durable performance to optimize service level continuity
- End-to-end data protection helps keep data safe—even in the event of a power loss
- Up to 3.2x lower Annualized Failure Rates (AFR) means fewer drive replacements
- Innovative firmware completes updates without server reset and reduces downtime
- Simplified configurations reduce risk of component failure and streamline maintenance
New Intel-Designed SATA Controller
A new SATA controller for the DC S4500 and DC S4600 Series delivers the convergence of scalable capacity and manageability. With Intel’s SATA controller, the DC S4600 delivers up to 30% faster mixed workloads, increasing service delivery performance and efficiency.
Integrated Intel 3D NAND SSDs Today
SATA has long been the cost-effective, industry-standard interface for data center storage. Simply replacing existing HDDs with larger capacity and higher performing Intel SSD DC S4500 and DC S4600 Series SATA-based solutions can maximize existing infrastructure investments, while reducing future costs and boosting what IT can deliver to their customers.
