Intel X25-E Extreme 64GB SATA Solid State Drive - SSDSA2SH064G101
|The Intel® Extreme SATA Solid-State Drive (SSD) offers outstanding performance and reliability, delivering the highest IOPS per watt for servers, storage and high-end workstations.|
Enterprise applications place a premium on performance, reliability, power consumption and space. Unlike traditional hard disk drives, Intel Solid-State Drives have no moving parts, resulting in a quiet, cool storage solution that also offers significantly higher performance than traditional server drives. Imagine replacing up to 50 high-RPM hard disk drives with one Intel X25-E Extreme SATA Solid-State Drive in your servers — handling the same server workload in less space, with no cooling requirements and lower power consumption. That space and power savings, for the same server workload, will translate to a tangible reduction in your TCO.
Drawing from decades of memory engineering experience, the Intel X25-E Extreme SATA Solid-State Drive is designed to deliver outstanding performance and reliability, featuring the latest-generation native SATA interface with an advanced architecture employing 10 parallel NAND flash channels equipped with single-level cell NAND flash memory for even greater overall performance and reliability. With powerful Native Command Queuing to enable up to 32 concurrent operations, these Intel SSDs deliver higher Input/Output Operations per Second (IOPS) and throughput performance than other SSDs on the market today - and drastically outperform traditional hard disk drives. These Intel drives also feature low write amplification and a unique wear-leveling design for higher reliability, meaning Intel drives not only perform better - they last longer.
Customer Reviews of Intel X25-E Extreme 64GB SATA Solid State Drive
Quadrupled my SQL Server 2008 database performance10/18/2010
I installed two mirrored physical disks and a set of four of these SSD's in raid 5 into a Dell 2950 (3.5" backplane, so I used the icydock adapters - happy with them too). Everything runs off the mirror, except the databases themselves on the SSD raid. I'm quite happy. Benchmark tests show a about a 4x performance increase in most disk-heavy operations over conventional disk. I plan to build another server with 2.5" backplane and 8 of these in raid.
