Every day, the amount of data created across the world is exploding to new levels. Enterprises and cloud service providers thrive on this data to make critical decision, gain new insights from the data and differentiate services. But, today’s current storage technologies can leave a technology gap in data storage tiers. The Intel® Optane™ SSD P4800X is the first product to combine the attributes of both memory and storage. Available in HHHL AIC & U.2 2.5″ SSD.

P4800X User case 1

HIGH THROUGHPUT FOR BREAKTHROUGH PERFORMANCE

Achieve breakthrough application performance with the DC P4800X. Designed to deliver 5-8x faster performance at low queue depth workloads,2 the DC P4800X allows you to take advantage of extremely high throughput for single accesses and super low latency. Revolutionary Intel® Memory Drive Technology extends system memory transparently.

LOW LATENCY: RESPONSIVE UNDER LOAD

With NAND-based SSDs, random write operations require an immense amount of background media management. These tasks can add significant delay to read operations. The Intel® Optane™ SSD DC P4800X maintains consistent read response times regardless of the write throughput applied to the drive.

PREDICTABLY FAST SERVICE:QoS

The DC P4800X is ideal for critical applications with demanding latency requirements. Its 99% read response time is 60x that of a high-endurance NAND SSD under random write workload.3 Optimised to minimise delays in data access times, the DC P4800X results in faster time to insight for decision making.

ULTRA-HIGH ENDURANCE

Endurance affects the life expectancy and costs of enterprise SSDs. The DC P4800X can withstand the intense write traffic typically demanded of memory. With its extremely high endurance, the life of the DC P4800X is extended, making it suitable for write-intensive applications such as online transaction processing, high-performance computing, write caching and logging.

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.
