1 Advantages of Intel SSDs for Data Centres Executive Summary Most businesses depend on at least one data centre infrastructure to be successful. A highly functioning data centre has several requirements, including high performance, availability, scalability, and manageability. Having a storage solution that is built specifically for data centre needs is key to meeting these requirements. High-performance storage can improve functionality by leaps and bounds. Intel s SSD Data Centre Family provides the right storage solutions to meet the diverse requirements of today s and the future s data centres. Data Centre Infrastructure A data centre infrastructure is the platform that runs IT applications and, in turn, applications that facilitate and enable the productive activities of an enterprise. Who today can get along without and internet access? It s the same for a business but more so- with applications for managing transactions, accounting, supply chains, human resources, sales, and marketing and their associated databases, such as SQL Server, MySQL, and Oracle. These application help staff increase productivity and enterprise success. Data centre infrastructure includes servers, storage systems, purpose-built appliances and networking equipment. TODAY S DATA CENTRES FACE NEW CHALLENGES GBX BILLION DATA GROWTH: As data grows to billions of gigabytes, so does the demand for server space, energy consumption, and IT budgets. STORAGE: A lack of responsive storage slows your business down. HDDs can t keep up with the processing power of the data centre. DATA CENTRE $12.8 MILLION POWER: Power-hungry data centres consume in the range of 150 kwh of electricity annually, costing up to $12.8 million per facility. THE SOLUTION IS SOLID The Intel Solid-State Drive Data Centre Family offers consistent performance and greater efficiency than HDDs. That s better for your client s IT budget and better for the planet.

2 IT Managers are under unprecedented pressure to identify and deploy more efficient use of IT resources, to reduce power consumption and to lower operating costs. And all with the highest possible performance delivery at a predictable rate for absolutely smooth data centre operation. 1,000X FASTER 3X LESS HEAT 5,000 TESTS.44% FAILURE RATE 99.9 % UPTIME Lightning Fast SSDs are thousands of times faster than HDDs outperforming HDDs by a magnitude of 2300:1. Keep Cool Data centre SSDs use up to 16x less energy and generate up to 3x less heat than HDDs. Built to Last The Intel SSD Data Centre Family undergoes over unique tests to ensure quality. Solid as Rock Compares to HDDs with 4.5% average failure rate, the Intel SSD DC Family has a rate of 0.44%. More Efficient With end-to-end data protection, the Intel SSD DC Family maximises uptime 99.9% of the time.

3 CONSISTENTLY AMAZING Modernises data centre storage Intel led the industry in creation of a new Non-Volatile Memory Express* (NVMe*) storage interface standard. NVMe overcomes SAS/SATA SSD performance limitations by optimizing hardware and software to take full advantage of NVM SSD technology. Comprehensive solution 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. Proven quality and reliability Intel SSD Data Centre 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.

4 The Intel Solid State Drive S3500 and S3700 Series were designed for read-intensive and write- intensive storage workloads. Intel Solid-State Drive DC S3500 Series Intel has designed its 3rd Generation controller for Data Centre Solid State Drives Fast and Consistent Performance Intel Data Centre SSDs accelerate data with consistently low latencies, tight and predictable IOPS distribution and dedicated Intel controllers. Stress-Free Protection Multiple secure checkpoints and other standard features that give data end-to-end protection against loss and corruption. Power & Cost Efficiency Intel Data Centre SSDs can save data centre operators money on hardware, reduce rack space requirement, cut energy consumption and power required for rack cooling, while maintaining (or increasing) data-handling capacity. Fast and Consistent Performance Intel Data Centre SSDs accelerate data with consistently low latencies, tight and predictable IOPS distribution and dedicated Intel controllers. Stress-Free Protection Multiple secure checkpoints and other standard features that give data end-to-end protection against loss and corruption. Intel Solid-State Drive DC S3700 Series Intel has designed its 3rd Generation controller for Data Centre Solid State Drives High Endurance Technology (HET) Intel High Endurance Technology offers solid state drives longer, more reliable lives.

6 How Intel Solid State Drives Stack Up to Hard Disk Drives Features: Features of Intel Solid-State Drives include: SATA link Power Management Device Sleep (DevSleep) End-to-end Data protection AES 256 Bit Encryption Data Compression Fast Optimised Performance of Intel Solid-State Drives include: Sequential read/write up to 5x/4x faster Random read/write tests up to 146x/235x faster Boot up to 5x faster Launch Microsoft and Adobe programs 13x faster Power Efficient Intel SSD get the job done faster and allow the system to idle sooner, significantly reducing power consumption Uses 10x less power for the same workload Recharge your devices less often and lower the risk of losing valuable data Conclusion: With unprecedented pressure to maximise performance delivery, reduce power use and lower operating costs, the Intel SSD Family for data centres holds the key to success. The Intel Solid-State Drives are designed to readand write- intensive storage workloads, at predictable rates for smooth data centre operations. The performance, reliability and cost-effectiveness of the storage volumes your clients choose for their data centres helps them protect their reputation.
