The Intel® SSD D5-P4320 and D5-P4420 deliver big, affordable, and reliable storage to the warm data tier. With 33% more bits per cell than TLC, the Intel® QLC 3D NAND SSDs enables 3x storage consolidation compared to hard disk drives (HDDs), leading to lower operational costs. As one of the industry’s first PCIe*-enabled QLC drive for the data center, the D5-P4420 provides the ability to scale to large capacities and deliver the performance needed for storage workload requirements.
The Intel® QLC technology offers an aerial density advantage of 33% more bits per cell than the prior generation of Intel® 3D NAND SSDs. The result? Higher capacity, cost-effective PCIe drives optimized for read-intensive storage workloads. The D5-P4420 is currently available in a U.2 form factor with 7.68TB capacity.
Today’s data center storage often relies on a mix of HDD and SSD technologies. The Intel® SSD D5-P4420 delivers high capacity and lower operational cost for the capacity or “warm” data storage layer traditionally served by hybrid or HDD arrays. With its higher density, Intel® QLC 3D NAND SSDs mean fewer drives to
support, power and cool. In addition, Intel® Data Center SSDs have a lower annual failure rate, which further reduces costs.
