Intel Unveils New SSD Form Factors At FMS

Recommended Posts

Getting more capacity in the same or smaller footprints has long been a goal of vendors and customers alike. While there have been several advancements around increasing the density of known form factors, there is always some sort of limitation, be it technology or price of the technology. Instead of cramming more NAND packs onto a 2.5” SSD or going for a larger 3.5” form factor, Intel is doing something completely different. Intel’s “ruler” SSD is a long skinny form factor that takes advantage of PCIe slots. The shape allows for much higher density (up to 1PB in a 1U space) and comes with low power and cooling needs. Intel will sell both 3D NAND and Optane drive in the ruler form factor.
