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 being designed for workload performance. As flash memory technology continues to evolve, SSD design choices should be made specific to the requirements of an application workload to maximize storage optimization in delivering value that can ultimately tie to bottom line improvement.
The S3700 SATA MLC Enterprise SSDs for IBM® System x® are designed for write-intensive workloads such as database, HPC, virtualization, and Big Data. The SSDs feature the newest Intel controller and leading edge 25 nm high endurance eMLC flash technology that delivers consistent high performance with heavy endurance along with end-to-end data protection for the data center.
