Micron Technology has unveiled its new series of flagship NVM Express™ (NVMe™) based solid-state drives (SSDs). The Micron 9300 series feature industry-leading storage performance with higher capacities suitable for the cloud and enterprise.
“The introduction of our third generation of NVMe SSDs endorses our tradition of continued innovation for cloud and enterprise markets,”Derek Dicker, corporate vice president and general manager for Micron’s Storage Business Unit
“The Micron 9300 is our flagship series of NVMe SSDs, which feature industry-leading sequential write performance and latency, increased capacities, and delivery of a 28% reduction in power over the previous generation.”Derek Dicker, corporate vice president and general manager for Micron’s Storage Business Unit
Built for data centres for the cloud and enterprise, the Micron 9300 series can store, access and quickly analyse large amounts of business-critical data. Likewise, having 3.5GB/second read/write throughput doesn’t hurt either.
“Support for massive amounts of fast storage in a server is a key feature of the AMD EPYC processor and is critical to our customers,”Raghunath Nambiar, corporate vice president and chief technology officer for AMD data centre ecosystem and application engineering
“With 128 lanes of PCIe available in a single socket, the AMD EPYC processor is an ideal match for the new Micron 9300 NVMe drives and for the data-centric workloads such as database applications, big data analytics and software-defined storage solutions that are increasingly found in the modern data centre.”Raghunath Nambiar, corporate vice president and chief technology officer for AMD data centre ecosystem and application engineering
Key features of the new Micron 9300 series include:
- 850,000 read and 310,000 write inputs/outputs (IOPS)
- High density – capacities up to 15.36TB enable per-rack storage density
- Data-integrity – data-path protection, power-loss protection for in-flight and at-rest data, sanitise crypto erase, and more
The Micron 9300 series of NVMe SSD is available now from any authorised Micron reseller. It’s available in two versions based on required endurance and performance:
- 9300 PRO series – For read-intensive workloads: capacities of 3.84TB, 7.68TB and 15.36TB
- 9300 MAX – Mixed-use applications: capacities of 3.2TB, 6.4TB and 12.8TB
