Intel Unveils New SSD Form Factor and Innovative Designs

Intel's new enterprise SSDs are changing that with the company's new "Ruler" design, which is created to optimize storage density while also reducing the amount of power and cooling, via Techgage. Probably the most interesting part of the announcement was the talk of the Ruler SSDs, which do indeed look like rulers but are a bit fatter, so are probably more akin to a spirit level. Instead of molding to the 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch size of traditional drives or just the dimensions of a PCIe slot, its long skinny shape fits into a standard rack mounted server. Intel says that the new ruler SSDs are intended for use in super high-density storage racks, with up to 1PB in a single 1U server. Intel describes that capacity as being enough for 300,000 HD movies, or 70 years of non-stop entertainment.

Intel plans to release both 3D NAND SSDs and Optane SSDs in the Ruler form factor "in the near future".

Intel's also teasing the dual port Intel Optane SSDs and 3D NAND SSDs, pitching them as offering "critical redundancy and failover" that will protect against multiple paths to failure for mission-critical and high availability apps.

The Intel SSD DC S4600 and DC S4500 Series are targeted at HDD replacement in the data center. Intel reckons these will be attractive products to those intending to preserve legacy infrastructure. To put that in perspective, in order to achieve the same amount of storage with 10TB mechanical hard drives, a fully loaded, 100-bay 4U server is required.

An earlier webcast, hosted by Leszinske and Laura Crone, Intel vice president and director of NSG End-User Solutions Marketing, featured customers outlining how Intel Optane technology is driving advancements in health care, transforming how transactions occur, enabling real-time analytics and capitalizing on the performance of Intel Xeon CPUs. AMD earlier on already refused to comment on a report by Fu.
