Micron 7450 SSD for Data Centers with NVMe delivers quality-of-service (QoS) latency at or below 2 milliseconds, a wide capacity range. The device features broad set of form factors to meet the needs of demanding data center workloads.
This new data center SSD from Micron includes Micron’s NAND that contains 176 layers of storage cells and CMOS-under-the-array technology, to deliver an efficient design. Integrated with Micron’s own DRAM, internally developed SoC and associated firmware, this vertically integrated SSD helps to rapidly respond to customer needs in the market and support strengthened device security.
The Micron 7450 SSD comes at a time when PCIe Gen4 is becoming the most widely adopted SSD interface in servers. The product delivers advanced NAND in a data center SSD and brings consistent latencies below 2 milliseconds, critical to enabling quality of service in scale- out data center workloads.
The 7450 SSD achieves latency at or below 2 ms for 99.9999% QoS in common, mixed, random workloads— driving up performance in databases, such as Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, RocksDB, Cassandra and Aerospike, among others. Compared to SATA SSDs, latency is reduced by nearly 50%, and read bandwidth is improved multiple times.
Diverse Mix of Capacities and Form Factors
The 7450 SSD features multiple capacity options to fit myriad data center needs. Its wide capacity range — from 400GB to 15.36TB — includes a capacity of 8TB in a compact E1.S form factor. In addition, the broader set of form factors for data center SSDs addresses the unique challenges of data center workloads. It’s U.3, M.2 and E1.S form factor options meet evolving space, power and thermal needs. The PCIe Gen4 U.3 SSD, in both 15mm and 7mm thicknesses, provides flexibility for platforms that require 2.5-inch NVMe drives. The SSD, designed primarily for server boot use, is a compact form factor supporting power loss protection.3
Safeguarding the Data Center
The new Micron SSDs offer self-encrypting drive functionality and Microsoft eDrive options that help safeguard against data breaches and tailor security to specific data protection requirements. Micron’s Secure Execution Environment (SEE) offers even more data protection by providing dedicated security processing hardware with physical isolation.
SEE also improves the safety of data at rest by using dedicated memory, secure code and a security processing engine.
Support for Open Compute Project
The Micron 7450 SSD also supports Open Compute Project (OCP) deployments for qualified environments. OCP specifications have built an ecosystem and created a standardized approach that helps reduce integration complexity and speeds time to market.
