Micron Broadens Choices for Storing the World’s Data with New Enterprise and Consumer SSDs

Micron Technology, Inc. unveiled new solid-state drives (SSDs) that expand Micron’s broad portfolio of drives available to both consumer and enterprise customers for storing the world’s data. The new Micron 7300 NVMe series and Micron 5300 SATA series of SSDs enable enterprises to modernize, economize and maximize return on their data center investments. Addressing consumers’ need for mobility, Micron also announced its entry into the consumer portable SSD market with the launch of its Crucial X8 Portable SSD.

Micron 7300 NVMe Series SSDs 

The Micron 7300 NVMe series of SSDs are designed for workloads that demand high throughput and low latency. They are ideal for commonly used mixed read-write, compute and virtualized tasks such as SQL and NoSQL, for hyper converged infrastructures, and for compute centric cloud platforms. The use of 96-layer 3D TLC NAND technology brings cost and power efficiencies while the drives offer end-to-end data path protection, power-loss protection, secure firmware and instant secure erase capability.

Micron 5300 SATA Series SSDs 

The new Micron 5300 SATA SSDs allow enterprises to extend their infrastructure investment by enabling an upgrade of their data centers with next-generation SATA drives. The Micron 5300 SSDs are the industry’s first 96-layer 3D TLC enterprise SATA drives with enhanced security. The new SSDs are optimized for read-intensive and mixed-use workloads while offering reliability that is 50% higher than the industry average for SATA drives.

Crucial X8 Portable SSD for Consumers 

The Crucial X8 Portable SSD, introduced by Micron’s industry-leading consumer brand for memory and storage upgrades, caters to the ever-expanding need for more storage by consumers, who are capturing more photos and playing larger console and PC games than ever before.

The Crucial X8 portable drive delivers impressive performance in a sleek case. With read speeds up to 1,050MB/s,3 the drive performs 1.8 times faster than similar portable SSDs within the same price category and up to 7.5 times faster than portable hard drives. The Crucial X8 is compatible with a variety of devices, including PCs, Macs, PS4s, XBOX Ones, iPad Pros, Chromebooks and select Android devices.
