- First TCG Enterprise-level hardware encryption for SSDs
- Dramatically better performance, lower power and better overall lifetime costs
- Ideal for read-optimized applications like content delivery, customer web applications and business analytic databases
- Third-generation XPERT firmware architecture features, which include Full Power Low Unique Solutions (PLUS) protection
The M510DC SATA SSD provides a balance of performance, security, enterprise reliability, power and cost. The M510DC SSD is an ideal solution for improving application load times for content delivery networks (CDNs) and enhancing response times to enable quicker decisions in big data analytics.
While early enterprise SSD deployments focused on high-endurance drives, data from
Deploying SSDs rather than traditional hard disk drives helps optimize workload response times around many of today's business-critical, read-centric deployments such as CDNs, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployments and business intelligence/decision support systems using database management. In the past, the cost of SSDs has inhibited users from budgeting for and adopting SSDs, but the improved value, performance and reliability of Micron's M510DC SSD opens the door for wider use.
Early adopters of the M510DC have seen immediate return on investment (ROI) after deploying Micron's M510DC SSD. The M510DC excelled in decreasing radiologist image load times from 15 seconds to virtually instantaneously for the MedVet Medical &
The M510DC is built with Micron's 16nm NAND technology using targeted enterprise-ready firmware. The drive features Micron's eXtended Performance and Enhanced Reliability Technology (XPERT) architecture, which delivers proprietary enhancements that greatly improve performance, drive life and integrity. Using a third-generation proven architecture, called PLUS, the drive also delivers full power-loss protection, ensuring that all data is protected in the event of a sudden power loss. The M510DC introduces new TCG Enterprise encryption to protect data at rest, and ensure simplified drive management. The drive is complementary to Micron's existing M500DC SSD, creating new options for SATA customers by allowing them to tailor drive selection to their workload requirements.
"Data center architectures are increasingly deploying flash technology to realize nimble results, but have withheld adoption due to cost. The M510DC meets this rising data center segment demand, delivering enterprise-class stability and endurance at a cost that makes hard drives practically obsolete for certain applications," said
The M510DC is in production and is sold directly to data center equipment manufacturers and through Micron's distribution partners.
