Micron Technology today unveiled its new series of flagship solid-state drives (SSDs) featuring the NVM Express (NVMe) protocol.
The Micron 300 series of NVMe SSDs enables companies with data-intensive applications to access and process data faster.
The Micron 9300 series equally balances its 3.5GB/second throughput on both reads and writes. Micron claims that the new series of drives performs nearly nine times faster than enterprise SATA SSDs and is 35% more efficient. The Micron 9300 series also consumes 28% less power than earlier NVMe drive generations, helping reduce operational costs.
The Micron 9300 series provides storage densities that were once reserved only for hard disk drives (HDDs) by offering capacities up to 15.36TB. Large capacities and up to 32 NVMe namespaces allow enterprises to tailor deployments more efficiently for maximum storage use.
Additional Highlights — Micron 9300 Series NVMe SSDs
- 850,000 read and 310,000 write inputs/outputs (IOPS).
- Data-integrity features such as data-path protection, power-loss protection for in-flight and at-rest data, sanitize crypto erase, and more.
The Micron 9300 series of NVMe SSDs is offered in two versions with varying endurance and performance characteristics. The 9300 PRO series is designed for read-intensive workloads and offered in capacities of 3.84TB, 7.68TB and 15.36TB. The 9300 MAX is geared toward mixed-use applications and offered in capacities of 3.2TB, 6.4TB and 12.8TB. Both versions will be available in U.2 (2.5-inch, 15 mm) form factor, support PCIe Gen3 x4 NVMe and be rated for a mean time between failures of 2 million hours.
