The performance of a single drive from the Intel SSD Data Center Family for PCIe, specifically the Intel Solid-State Drive Data Center P3700 Series (460K IOPS), can replace the performance of 7 SATA SSDs aggregated through a host bus adapter (HBA) (approximately 500K IOPS). NVMe overcomes SAS/SATA SSD performance limitations by optimizing hardware and software to take full advantage of NVM SSD technology. Intel is driving transition to NVMe SSDs by providing a comprehensive product line, enabling extensive system compatibility, delivering Intel drivers as well as supporting industry driver development, and completing numerous industry standard compliance certifications. Intel SSD Data Center Family for PCIe devices are based on Intel-developed controller, firmware, and leading manufacturing process NAND flash memory. Rigorous qualification and compatibility testing ensures a highly reliable SSD. The Intel SSD Data Center Tool provides a powerful set of management capabilities.
