Advantages of Intel SSDs for Data Centres
Executive Summary
Data Centre Infrastructure
Most businesses depend on at least one data centre
infrastructure to be successful. A highly functioning
data centre has several requirements, including high
performance, availability, scalability, and manageability. Having a storage solution that is built specifically for data centre needs is key to meeting these requirements. High-performance storage can improve
functionality by leaps and bounds. Intel’s SSD Data
Centre Family provides the right storage solutions
to meet the diverse requirements of today’s and the
future’s data centres.
A data centre infrastructure is the platform that
runs IT applications and, in turn, applications that
facilitate and enable the productive activities of
an enterprise. Who today can get along without
email and internet access? It’s the same for a business but more so- with applications for managing
transactions, accounting, supply chains, human
resources, sales, and marketing and their associated databases, such as SQL Server, MySQL, and
Oracle. These application help staff increase productivity and enterprise success. Data centre infrastructure includes servers, storage systems, purpose-built appliances and networking equipment.
TODAY’S DATA CENTRES FACE NEW CHALLENGES
GBX
BILLION
DATA GROWTH:
As data grows to billions of gigabytes, so does the demand for server
space, energy consumption, and IT budgets.
STORAGE:
A lack of responsive storage slows your business down. HDDs can’t keep up with
the processing power of the data centre.
$12.8
MILLION
POWER:
Power-hungry data centres consume in the range of 150 kWh of electricity
annually, costing up to $12.8 million per facility.
THE SOLUTION IS SOLID
The Intel Solid-State Drive Data Centre Family offers consistent performance and greater
efficiency than HDDs. That’s better for your client’s IT budget and better for the planet.
DATA
CENTRE
IT Managers are under unprecedented pressure
to identify and deploy more efficient use of IT
resources, to reduce power consumption and to
lower operating costs.
And all with the highest possible performance
delivery at a predictable rate for absolutely
smooth data centre operation.

Modernises data centre storage
Intel led the industry in creation of a new Non-Volatile Memory Express* (NVMe*) storage interface
standard. NVMe overcomes SAS/SATA SSD performance limitations by optimizing hardware and
software to take full advantage of NVM SSD technology.
Comprehensive solution
Intel is driving transition to NVMe SSDs by providing a comprehensive product line, enabling extensive
system compatibility, delivering Intel drivers as well as supporting industry driver development, and
completing numerous industry standard compliance certifications.
Proven quality and reliability
Intel SSD Data Centre Family for PCIe devices are based on Intel-developed controller, firmware, and
leading manufacturing process NAND flash memory. Rigorous qualification and compatibility testing
ensures a highly reliable SSD.
The Intel Solid State Drive S3500 and S3700 Series were designed for
read-intensive and write- intensive storage workloads.

Fast and Consistent Performance
Intel Data Centre SSDs accelerate data with
consistently low latencies, tight and predictable
IOPS distribution and dedicated Intel controllers.
Stress-Free Protection
Multiple secure checkpoints and other standard
features that give data end-to-end protection
against loss and corruption.
Power & Cost Efficiency
Intel Data Centre SSDs can save data centre
operators money on hardware, reduce rack space
requirement, cut energy consumption and power
required for rack cooling, while maintaining (or
increasing) data-handling capacity.
