Choosing The Right SSD For The Data Center: 5 Top-Notch Picks

Micron Enterprise SSD P400m

Memory-maker Micron also backs up its enterprise-grade SSD for five years and warrants it to perform 10 drive fills per day during that period. We're referring to the Enterprise SSD P400m, its recently released series of high-performance MLC SATA 3.0 SSDs that come in 100-GB, 200-GB and 400-GB capacities. According to Micron, the P400m controller hosts its proprietary performance and reliability firmware, which closely integrates the NAND flash device and controller to produce an MLC-based SSD that maximizes endurance. The 200-GB tested model is rated to deliver 380 MB/s for sequential 64-KB reads and 310 MB/s for writes. For random 4-KB reads, the drive delivers 54,000 IOPS and 26,000 for random writes.
