Intel has officially announced the launch of two new 3D NAND solid state drives (SSDs) for data centers. This addition of Intel SSD DC P4500 Series and Intel SSD DC P4600 Series is going to reinforce the brand’s commitment to expanding 3D NAND supply.
The latest SSDs have been designed from the ground up for cloud storage solutions, including software-defined storage and converged infrastructure. The SSD DC P4500 Series has been optimised for reads, while the SSD DC P4600 Series has been developed for mixed workloads. The former enables data centers to get more value out of servers whereas the latter accelerates caching and allows more workloads per server.

The SSDs are paired with Intel’s triple-level cell (TLC) 3D NAND that delivers industry-leading density with an all-new Intel-developed controller, unique firmware innovations, and PCIe/NVMe. The series render a blend of performance, capacity, manageability and reliability, thereby offering game-changing value to data centers.
These unique features will accelerate the move to software-defined storage with effective scaling, increase the efficiency of data centers and reduce the total cost of ownership while improving service levels. Initially, the Intel SSD DC P4500 Series and P4600 Series will be launched in a half-height half-length add-in card and U.2 2.5-inch form factors in 1, 2, and 4TB capacities.
Intel expands the boundaries of technology to make the most amazing experiences possible.
