Intel IoT SSD

Intel has developed its 3D NAND solid state drive (SSD) models for devices related to the emerging Internet of Things (IoT) space. The new SSDs come in multiple storage options to fulfill the requirements of connected devices.

The Intel SSD E6000P Series is the first model in the new range. It has 128GB and 256GB storage options and AES 256-bit self-encryption technology. To offer the SATA interface instead of the PCIe on the E6000P, the chip maker has designed its SSD E 5420s. The drive has 150GB of storage on M.2 form factor.

Intel has also brought the SSD E5400s and E5410s Series that both have SATA 6Gb/s interface and offer a variety of storage space from 40GB to 180GB. All the latest models for the connected world are touted to offer a reliable experience across embedded and IoT solutions.

In addition to the IoT-centric models, Intel has unveiled new SSD options for data centres. There is the SSD DC P3520 and SSD DC S3520 Series that both are targeted at cloud computing services.

The Intel SSD P3520 Series includes SSD models with up to 2TB of capacity, along with a sequential reading speed of 1,700Mbps and writing speed of up to 1,350Mbps. It has PCIe 3×4 interface.

The Intel SSD S3520 Series, on the other hand, has up to 1.6TB of storage and offers SATA 6Gb/s interface. The SSD range is claimed to have up to 450MB/s of sequential reading speed and 380MB/s of writing speed.

“The new Intel 3D NAND SSDs offer a cost-effective replacement for traditional hard disk drives to help customers accelerate user experiences, improve the performance of apps and services across segments, and also reduce IT costs,” Intel notes in a brief press statement.
