    Intel Announces Intel® SSD DC S3700 Series -- Next-Generation Data Center Solid-State Drive

    A couple interesting part of this announcement involve the large drive size, the consistent access latency, and most of all, the improvement in WRITE time.

    The consistent access time means that Intel has worked around the problems with the wear algorithms. SSD's map the blocks so they are equally accessed and a block does not wear out. Early algorithms and many in play today will stop the writing if they are shuffling data around. This is terrible for enterprise apps that depend on response times. Disk accesses pile up behind this shuffling and choke the system.

    WIth a 15x improvement in write times, these non-volatile memories are getting close to providing a large, non-volatile, random access memory for low power systems. If a system (smartphone or tablet or Ultrabook) has a large non-volatile memory, then applcations don't have to be written to disk before going to sleep.

    Talk about fast startup time.

    Intel SSD DC S3700 Delivers Consistent Performance, Protection and High Endurance to Meet the Needs of HPC, Big Data, Cloud and Other Data Center Applications


    Intel SSD DC S3700 Series offers next-generation storage performance to meet the needs of today’s big data, HPC and cloud-computing apps.
    Low latencies and consistent IOPS performance delivers 2x read and 15x write improvements over previous generation Intel® SSD 710 Series.
    Offered in 100-/200-/400-/800GB capacities, new SSD delivers on all fronts: fast performance, strong data protection and high endurance.

    • how realistic is it for these to replace disk drives in PCs, enterprise etc? I thought I read there wasn't enough SSD capacity to make much of a dent in the market.

    • Whatttttt? You mean Intel is not standing still until 2015 when ARM Servers come out? You mean Intel is spending 53 million PER DAY on R & D? Maybe they guy at AMD was right? Maybe ARM Servers will have been an utter a waste of time by then?? But hey...Rory over at AMD knows this and also knows that by partnering with ARM, he just bought himself A LOT of time to keep that HUGE paycheck rolling in!
