Micron Technology unveiled a new set of solid-state disk drives (SSDs) intended to boost capacity and performance while cutting power consumption for both servers and clients.
The enterprise-class RealSSD P200 and the client-side RealSSD C200 are aimed at organizations trying to keep up with data demands by deploying additional hard disks in their RAIDs, which often boost the power draw while providing only incremental storage increases.
The P200 resides in a 2.5-inch form factor and ranges from 16 GB to 128 GB. The single-level cell (SLC) NAND device offers a 3 Gbps SATA interface and sequential read and write speeds of 250 MBps. The company reports an MTBF of more than 2 million hours, making it suitable for mission-critical applications.
The C200 is a multi-level cell (MLC) NAND device available as either a 2.5-inch unit with up to 256 GB of storage, or a 1.8-inch version ranging from 32 to 128 GB. It also includes a 3 Gbps SATA interface with read/write speeds of 250 MBps/100 Mbps.
Samples are available now, with full production models due by the end of the year.
