New generation of solid-state drives has significant performance improvements, says Intel
Intel has released a new solid-state drive that it says can offer read/write speeds of 500MBps and 460MBps, almost double what its predecesor could.
The new DC S3700 Series SSD will also have just 65 microseconds of write latency, compared to 75 microseconds for the 710 Series SSD, according to this ComputerWorld article. Meanwhile, Intel is slashing the prices for the drives, which range in capacity from 100 GB to 800 GB, by 40 per cent compared to the 710 series.
The faster I/O operations the solid-state drives will be able to execute will offer better performance in virtualized environments, said a spokesman for Intel quoted in the article.
“When someone is deploying a virtualized environment, this kind of performance in the I/O subsystem will allow end users to put more virtual machines onto a single base of hardware,” said Roger Peene, director of data center SSD marketing for Intel. ”You’ll see very nice consistent performance over time. Our performance will only vary no more than 15 per cent.”
