Micron Technology has released Micron 7400 SSD with NVMe, delivering industry-leading form factor flexibility, PCIe Gen4 performance, and leading-edge security to meet the storage needs of demanding data center workloads.
With this portfolio, Micron is providing the broadest selection of mainstream data center SSDs available.
“Our customers need improved storage density and efficiency to run their businesses,” said Jeremy Werner, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of the Storage Business Unit at Micron. “The Micron 7400 SSD is flexible in its ability to address myriad applications and system interoperability requirements, enabling deployments and delivering value from edge to cloud.”
“The Micron 7400 SSD offers wide appeal for deployments from edge to cloud,” said Patrick Moorhead, Chief Analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy. “Varied applications and workloads with unique requirements can benefit from the high performance and efficiency of new form factors as well as security features designed to protect against network and physical attacks.”
Featuring seven form factors, the Micron 7400 SSD enables the transition to next-generation server architectures.
The Micron 7400 SSD includes the only PCIe Gen4 M.2 22x80mm with power loss protection, as well as 2.5” U.3 data center SSDs in both 15mm and 7mm thicknesses.2 It also features three different sizes of the new E1.S Enterprise and Data Center SSD Form Factor (EDSFF), enabling greater density, flash-optimized performance, and improved power and cooling options.
This breadth of options means customers can move from traditional servers to dense EDSFF server designs with one SSD. Offering a wide capacity range from 400GB to 7.68TB, the portfolio supports low to high-capacity applications. It also has endurance options for one and three-drive writes per day to support read and write-intensive applications.
The SSD leverages the full vertical integration capabilities of Micron to bring industry-leading innovation, from the controller to firmware and leading-edge NAND and DRAM technology, to world-class front-end and back-end manufacturing.
The Micron 7400 SSD more than doubles IOPs per watt and throughput compared to the previous generation.6 Backwards compatibility with PCIe Gen3 systems helps ease customer transition from Gen3 to Gen4 platforms.
