Intel Doubles Capacity For Its Optane DC P4800X SSD

Recommended Posts

Optane technology is all about performance. Intel claims that users can see 5 to 8 times the performance at low queue depth workloads and the drives can hit a throughput of 500K IOPS or 2GB/s at a queue depth of 11. The drive is able to hit these numbers while keeping latency under 30μs. Performance gains such as the above were mighty enticing but the drive was initially only offered in a 375GB capacity and HHHL form factor. Today Intel has given potential customers more capacity and form factors to allow the drive to fit in their data centers.

I am very curious how well a  SLC 3D NAND SSD might do against Optane.

Still, now that the cat is out of the bag, the random performance is especially impressive. Perhaps not 1000x that of NAND, but it does fit in the gap between DRAM and NAND I guess.

 

Price is expensive, as you would expect for a premium product. I'm interested to see what Micron will release as well.

We're expecting a vSAN config with Optane soon. Hopefully we'll have time to borrow a drive for a little more of a shakedown.
