SSD DC P4501 Series

 

Designed for power conscious and space constrained cloud storage solutions.

 

The cloud continues to drive innovation, new services, and agility for businesses, which need to deploy services faster, scale effectively, and reduce the human costs of managing assets. Software-defined and converged infrastructures are central to cloud solutions that help businesses meet these goals. In addition, today’s data centers face space and power constraints.

To meet these challenges, Intel offers space and power optimized SSD options in a variety of form actors to give solution designers choices to reduce Opex, increase agility, and reduce Capex.

 

Key Benefits

 

  • Optimised for cloud storage solutions

  • Smaller form factors at large capacities

  • Reduce power budget by up to 45% for same capacity per rack

  • New firmware manageability features help minimise service disruptions

  • Enables efficient management at scale

P4501 Series Highlights

 

Manageability to Maximise IT Efficiency

 

DC P4501 drives are built to maximise IT efficiency within existing server footprints. New firmware manageability features—including improved firmware updates, health monitoring, and secure erase—help reduce server downtime through improved update processes and expanded monitoring capabilities.

In addition, the Intel® SSD DC P4501 is platform-compatible with Intel® Volume Management Device (Intel® VMD) which delivers seamless management of PCIe-based NVMe* SSDs and enables enhanced serviceability and hot-plug to minimise service interruptions during drive swaps.

SMART management and Intel custom log pages provide advanced drive telemetry to manage thermals, monitor endurance, and track drive health status. Management coverage is now expanded across a wider range of drive states with support for the NVM Express* Management Interface (NVMe-MI) specification, an industry standard way to manage the SSD out-of-band.

 

Industry-Leading Reliability and Security

 

As capacity per server continues to scale, the risk of data corruption and errors increases. With an eye toward this risk, Intel has built industry-leading end-to-end data protection into the DC P4501. This includes protection from silent data corruption, which can cause catastrophic downtime and errors in major businesses.

Power Loss Imminent (PLI) provides protection from unplanned power loss, and is obtained through a propriety combination of power management chips, capacitors, firmware algorithms, and a built-in PLI self-test. Intel’s PLI feature provides data centres with high confidence of preventing data loss during unplanned power interrupts.

 

Future Proof Your Data Center with Low Power Storage Solutions

 

Built with the same cloud inspired design as the Intel® SSD DC P4500 Series, the low power Intel® SSD DC P4501 Series enables energy and space efficient storage solutions to help data centres do more per server, minimise service disruptions and efficiently manage at scale.

Built on NVMe* specification 1.2, these PCIe* SSDs are available in 1TB, 2TB, 4TB, and 8TB in the U.2 2.5” (15mm) form factor.

 

Key Benefits

 

  • Built for cloud storage: Significantly increases server agility and utilization across a wide range of workloads

  • Do more per server: 64-layer, TLC, 3D NAND technology enables greater capacity for increased density

  • Minimise service disruptions: Enhanced SMART monitoring and power loss imminent (PLI) protection

  • Efficiently manage at scale: Dynamic namespace management, security features and built-in AES-XTS 256-bit encryption

P4510 Series Highlights

 

 

An SSD Built for Cloud Storage Architectures

 

Multi-cloud has become a core element for any enterprise strategy, and top cloud providers have responded by openly embracing PCIe/NVMe-based SSDs with scalable performance, low latency, and continued innovation.

As software-defined and converged infrastructures are swiftly adopted, the need increases to maximize efficiency, revitalize existing hardware, deploy new workloads, and yet reduce operational expenditures. The Intel® SSD DC P4510 Series meets these requirements. It significantly increases server agility and utilization, and accelerates applications across a wide range of cloud workloads.

 

Do More Per Server

 

Intel’s 64-layer, TLC, 3D NAND technology enables the DC P4510 to double the capacity available compared to its immediate predecessor, the Intel® SSD DC P4500 Series. This increased density is the key to supporting broader workloads, allowing cloud service providers to increase users and improve data service levels.

Better QoS is ensured with an intelligent firmware algorithm that keeps host and background data read/write at an optimum balance.

With the DC P4510, host applications will not only have access to double the capacity, but will also be serviced at up to 80% faster write rate,1 2 up to 2x better random write IOPS/TB,3 2 and up to 10x reduction of service time (compared to the DC P4500) at a QoS metric of 99.99% availability for random access workload.

With this level of workload ability and agility, data centers can refresh existing hardware and reduce operational expenditures.

 

 Minimise Service Disruptions

 

To ensure telemetry information without disrupting ongoing I/Os, the DC P4510 includes enhanced SMART monitoring of drive health and status, using an in-band mechanism and out-of-band access. A power loss imminent (PLI) protection scheme with a built-in self-test guards against data loss if system power is suddenly cut.

Coupled with our industry-leading end-to-end data path protection scheme,5 PLI features enable ease of deployment into resilient data centers where data corruption from system-level glitches is not tolerated. The DC P4510 combines firmware enhancements with new 3D NAND features to prioritize host workload and ensure better service levels. The result: 6x workload support at a given service level response time.

 

Efficiently Manage at Scale

 

To help data centres make the most of increased SSD capacity per server, dynamic namespace management delivers the flexibility to enable more users and scale deployment. The DC P4510 also provides security features like TCG Opal* 2.0 and built-in AES-XTS 256-bit encryption engine, required by some secure platforms.

With the capability to manage multiple firmware versions on a drive and to support updates without a reset, the DC P4510 improves integration and increases the ease and efficiency of deploying at scale.

 

Choose the DC P4510 for Data Centre Storage

With the increased density of Intel 64-layer 3D NAND and enhanced firmware features, the DC P4510 is built to handle read-intensive workloads and beyond. The DC P4510 creates greater Quality of Service, bandwidth, and performance to lead data centers through their evolving transformation.
