Micron comes up with P400m SSD series

Just a week after the launch of the Crucial M500 SSD series the US company Micron has prepared the P400m SSD line.

The P400m SSDs have been designed for use in servers and databases and this is the reason why they come with enhanced durability. These drives can withstand 5 years of everyday usage that reaches 10 times the capacity of the drive. Available in 100 GB, 200 GB and 400 GB models the P400m drives are based on 25 nm MLC NAND flash memory and come in the usual 2.5-inch form factor. In addition to Micron’s XPERT technology (Extended Performance and Enhanced Reliability Technology) that optimizes the drive’s work, the P400m models fully support SATA 3.0.

The only thing that remains to be mentioned is speed – the 100 GB model features 350/210 MB/sec of read/write speed, while the 200 GB model comes with 350/300 MB/sec of read/write speed. The 400 GB model is as fast as the 200 GB one. As to IOPS this is how things look like – the 100 GB model comes with 50 000/14 000 IOPS of read/write speed, while the 200 GB and 400 GB models offer 55 000 and 17 000 IOPS respectively.

Pricing is unknown as of now.
