Micron Technology, Inc., has announced the availability of their new Micron 7400 SSD with NVMe technology. The latest SSD offers flexible form factors, including PCIe Gen4 performance levels, and cutting-edge security, meeting the storage demand of high-processing data center workloads.
The manufacturer also provides the widest selection of mainstream data center SSDs on the market and is currently offering seven different form factors with their 7400 SSD line to transition to next-generation server structure and capabilities.
Data centers continue to evolve thanks to the rapid growth of data and the proliferation of applications that demand high performance. The need to process, analyze and secure data that provides valuable insights is fueling the modernization of the data center, requiring new levels of storage innovation.
“Our customers need improved storage density and efficiency to run their businesses,” said Jeremy Werner, corporate vice president and general manager of the Storage Business Unit at Micron. “The Micron 7400 SSD is flexible in its ability to address myriad applications and system interoperability requirements, enabling deployments and delivering value from edge to cloud.”
The Micron 7400 SSD includes a PCIe Gen4 M.2 2280 and comes with power loss protection which is a one-of-a-kind solution that no other companies offer. Since it comes in different form factors, this gives consumers access to switch from traditional servers to a much more dense EDSFF server design with a single SSD.
The Micron 7400 SSD doubles IOPs per watt and throughput compared to their predecessors and its also backward compatible with PCIe 3.0 systems which ensure an easy transition for consumers to adapt to newer fourth-generation platforms.
OCP developed and published specifications that have built a thriving ecosystem, creating a standardized approach that helps reduce integration complexity and speeds time to market.
The Micron 7400 SSD also offers “standards-based features,” such as TCG-Opal 2.01 and IEEE-1667, and its Secure Execution Environment (SEE), allows organizations to isolate and process security transactions, while also extending protection from consistent and evolved threats.
“The Micron 7400 SSD offers wide appeal for deployments from edge to cloud,” said Patrick Moorhead, chief analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy. “Varied applications and workloads with unique requirements can benefit from the high performance and efficiency of new form factors as well as security features designed to protect against network and physical attacks.”
