With solid-state drives (SSDs) becoming more prominent in data centers, there is an increased focus on SSD endurance - the ability of an SSD to withstand large amounts of data writes. The IntelSSD 710 Series introduces a solution for these data center environments and endurance-focused applications: High Endurance Technology (HET). This technology, consisting of silicon-level and system- level optimizations, helps the Intel SSD 710 Series extend its endurance beyond what can be achieved using standard multi-level cell (MLC) NAND.
Intel has been one of the most reliable solid-state drive producers in the industry. I have had no problem with the drive since I bought it.with a name like Intel, you pay a premium for the company brand, but it is worth it in terms of reliability and not having to be worried about whether your precious data is going to be lost.
