Intel has introduced a brand new Solid State Drive (SDD) which could save up to 1 Petabyte of data, using less power. They’ve termed it “Ruler”. It is sufficient to store 70 decades of nonstop videos and about 300,000 high definition movies. All these slim-shaped devices are created for server racks at which they will have the ability to extensively increase the quantity of storage space.
The title, “Ruler” is given due to its long and skinny form that completely ditches heritage 3.5 and 2.5 inch formats employed for traditional hard disk drive. Since Solid State Drives do not have engines (contains only variety of chips), new form variables were introduced like PCIe card and M.2 slots, in order to deliver promising non-volatile storage technologies.
Together with the elimination of constraints on size and contour, Ruler delivers a huge quantity of storage space with reduced cooling and power requirements. The new drive is using Intel’s 3D NAND technologies, making it possible to keep around 1 PB in a 1U server. To achieve the exact same amount of storage with 10 Terabyte hard drive, you want a totally loaded 100-bay 4U server.
Price and Release Date Are Not Confirmed?
Regrettably, Intel has not provided any detailed information. No words on straps or dimension, however, it is anticipated that they might utilize a normal SATA or U.two SAS-3 connector.
What Else They’re Introducing?
The ruler isn’t the device Intel showed in August 2017, they’re also looking to establish 3D NAND port SSDs port SSDs and technology to get high-availability, mission critical programs. This will provide better failover and redundancy.
Port SSDs should replace SAS and HDDs SSDs. This new storage technology promises to deliver more bandwidth and IOPS with reduced latency.
The generation 32-layer 3D NAND technology could reduce storage price, maximize server efficiency and decrease host disruptions.
