The new Micron 9300 series storage unveiled this week provides storage densities that were once reserved only for hard disk drives (HDDs) by offering capacities up to 15.36TB. These larger capacities and up to 32 NVMe namespaces allow enterprises to tailor deployments more efficiently for maximum storage use.
The Micron 9300 series of NVMe SSDs is offered in two versions with varying endurance and performance characteristics. The 9300 PRO series is designed for read-intensive workloads and offered in capacities of 3.84TB, 7.68TB and 15.36TB. The 9300 MAX is geared toward mixed-use applications and offered in capacities of 3.2TB, 6.4TB and 12.8TB. Both versions will be available in U.2 (2.5-inch, 15 mm) form factor, support PCIe Gen3 x4 NVMe.
Features of the Micron 9300 Series NVMe SSDs :
– 850,000 read and 310,000 write inputs/outputs (IOPS).
– Class-leading capacities up to 15.36TB enable per-rack storage density that outperforms even the densest HDDs.
– Data-integrity features such as data-path protection, power-loss protection for in-flight and at-rest data, sanitize crypto erase, and more.
“Support for massive amounts of fast storage in a server is a key feature of the AMD EPYC processor and is critical to our customers,” said Raghunath Nambiar, corporate vice president and chief technology officer for AMD datacenter ecosystem and application engineering. “With 128 lanes of PCIe available in a single socket, the AMD EPYC processor is an ideal match for the new Micron 9300 NVMe drives and for the data-centric workloads such as database applications, big data analytics and software-defined storage solutions that are increasingly found in the modern data center.”
