Micron Technology, Inc. is sampling the world's first vertically-integrated 176-layer NAND SSD for the data centre. The Micron 7450 SSD with NVMe delivers quality-of-service QoS latency at or below 2ms, a wide capacity range and the broadest set of form factors available to meet the needs of the most demanding data centre workloads.
This new data centre SSD includes the company's industry-leading NAND, which contains 176 layers of storage cells and proven CMOS-under-the-array technology to deliver an ultra-efficient design. Integrated with its own DRAM, internally developed SoC, and associated firmware, this vertically integrated SSD enables the company to rapidly respond to customer needs and support strengthened device security.
"We're launching the Micron 7450 SSD at the same time PCIe Gen4 is becoming the most widely adopted SSD interface in servers," said Jeremy Werner, corporate vice president and general manager of Micron's Storage Business Unit. "This product delivers the world's most advanced NAND in a data centre SSD well ahead of the industry and, importantly, brings consistent, reliable latencies below two milliseconds, critical to enabling quality of service in scale-out data centre workloads."
