Intel has this week announced they have doubled the storage capacity of the “World’s Most Responsive Data Center SSD” which takes the form of the Intel Optane SSD DC P4800X Series and is now available offering 750 GB capacities in both half height half length add-in card and a hot-swappable 2.5-inch U.2 form factor, depending on your needs. The new capacity is available in all form factors from this month and have been designed to be combined with the latest Intel Xeon Scalable processors, Intel Optane technology enables bigger and more affordable data sets to gain new insights from larger memory pools.
• 750 GB Capacity
• U.2 15mm Form Factor
• PCIe NVMe 3.0 x4 Interface
Intel explains more:
The Intel Optane SSD DC P4800X is an ideal SSD for storage workloads, like SAN and software defined storage, as well as cloud, database, big data and high-performance computing workloads. Increased capacity and multiple form factors expand data center implementation options and deliver both solution-level and total cost of ownership flexibility for customers. Intel Optane technology for data centers combines the attributes of memory and storage with low latency, high endurance, outstanding quality of service and high throughput, creating a new data tier that increases scale per server and reduces transaction costs.
The new capacity follows the 375GB half-height, half-length add-in card launched earlier this year. The Intel Optane SSD DC P4800X Series is also available as part of the Intel Select Solutions program and through additional OEMs, cloud service providers and distributors starting this month.
