Intel Announces DC S3710 and DC S3610 SATA 6Gb/s Data Center SSDs

Intel Corporation, a leading producer of solid state drives (SSDs) renowned for their reliability, is announcing the expansion of its data center family of SATA 6GB/s solid state drives to include the Intel SSD DC S3710 and the Intel SSD DC S3610. Both of these new drives offer increased write performance for faster processing of write data in data center environments, and at a lower total cost of ownership (TCO).

DC S3710 banner 2The Intel SSD DC S3710 series attains up to a 25% increase in write performance as compared to their previous generation of data center SSDs, as well as high endurance and strong data protection. The resultant increased write speeds come at a lower total cost of ownership for usage scenarios such as large scale virtualization, high data rate analytics, high performance computing and operational databases.

DC S3610 bannerThe Intel SSD DC S3610 series is a mid-level SSD that offers up to twice the write performance of entry level data center SSDs, while still offering high endurance and strong data protection. Utilizing the DC S3610 series provides IT managers with an ideal balance of improved performance, endurance and low cost for workloads that include virtualization, e-commerce, analytical and operational databases, and cloud infrastructures.

DC S3610 DC S3710The DC S3710 series are 2.5” form factor SATA 6Gb/s SSDs that are being offered in capacities of 200GB, 400GB, 800GB and 1.2TB. Intel is utilizing 20nm MLC NAND with High Endurance Technology to achieve sustained sequential reads of (up to) 550 MB/s for all capacities. Sequential write speeds vary by capacity, with the 200GB at (up to) 300MB/s, the 400GB at (up to) 470MB/s, the 800GB at (up to) 460MB/s and the 1.2TB at (up to) 520MB/s. Random 4K reads come in at (up to) 85,000 IOPS for all capacities. Again, random 4K write speeds vary by capacity, with the 200GB and 400GB attaining (up to) 43,000 IOPS, the 800GB attaining (up to) 39,000 IOPS and the 1.2TB attaining (up to) 45,000 IOPS.

DC S3710 specsEndurance rating for the DC S3710 is stated as up to 10 Drive Writes per Day (DWPD), and up to 24.3 Petabytes written. Mean time between failures (MTBF) is stated as 2,000,000 hours. S.M.A.R.T. drive health and monitoring attributes are also supported, as well as AES 256-bit encryption, enhanced power loss protection and thermal monitoring. Intel is backing the DC S3710 series of data center SSDs with a five-year warranty.

DC S3610 specsThe DC S3610 series are 2.5” form factor SATA 6Gb/s SSDs that are being offered in capacities of 200GB, 400GB, 480GB, 800GB, 1.2TB and 1.6TB. Intel utilizes the same 20nm MLC NAND with High Endurance Technology to achieve sustained sequential read speeds of (up to) 550MB/s for the 200GB, 400GB and 480GB versions. The 1.2TB version is rated for (up to) 500MB/s, with the 800GB and 1.6TB versions coming in at (up to) 540 MB/s. Sequential write speeds vary by capacity also, with the 200GB model at (up to) 230MB/s, the 400GB at (up to) 400MB/s, the 480GB at (up to) 440MB/s, the 800GB at (up to) 520MB/s, the 1.2TB and 1.6TB at (up to) 500MB/s.

DC S3710 DC S3610 dimensionsRandom 4K read speeds are identical for all capacities at (up to) 84,000 IOPS. Random 4K write speeds vary by capacity, with the 200GB model at (up to) 12,000 IOPS, the 400GB model at (up to) 25,000 IOPS, the 480GB-800GB-1.2TB all at (up to) 28,000 IOPS and the 1.6TB model at (up to) 27,000 IOPS. Endurance rating for the DC S3610 series is stated as up to 3 Drive Writes per Day (DWPD), and up to 10.7 Petabytes written. Mean time between failures (MTBF) is stated as 2,000,000 hours. S.M.A.R.T. drive health and monitoring attributes are also supported, as well as AES 256-bit encryption, enhanced power loss protection and thermal monitoring. Intel is backing the DC S3610 series with a five-year warranty.

Intel HQAll of the above models are currently available from Intel. Some “TBD” listings in the product specification sheets may indicate that 1.8” form factor versions of the DC S3610 series are also planned.

20NM class MLC NAND and 1.6 TB capacity in 2.5″ form factor is nice. I can not see any description about the size. 7 mm or 9.5 mm? There are some samples of 2 TB 2.5″ SSDs on the market. And according to Sandisk it is possibe to produce 4 TB 2.5″ SSD. Only obstacle is Controller. Higher capacities need more powerful controllers. I am sure thanks to new IMTF 16NM class or Toshiba 15 NM class NAND it will be possible to produce 6 – 8 TB 2.5″ SSD drives in 9.5 mm or even in 7mm. It will… Read more »
