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. 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 rate1, up to 2x better random write IOPS/TB2, 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.

Minimize 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 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, 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 centers 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 Center 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.
