Intel Introduces New SSD Form Factor to Encourage Storage Transformation

Author at TechGenyz Tech
Intel Storage

Yesterday, Intel announced chief data center storage progresses, re-establishing the company’s leadership in memory . Intel’s new technologies aim at developments in data center storage. At the same time, these deliver innovative solutions for countering risks concerned with growing data.

Following are the new technologies:

  • ‘Ruler’ Form Factor for Intel SSDs – It is an entirely new state drive form factor with solid built. It enables up to 1PB of storage, which can be reserved in a 1U server rack for future usage.
  • Intel Optane Technology – It showcases the most advanced dual port profile of the world. Dual port SSDs of both Optane and 3D Nand serve for mission-critical applications.
  • Intel is also targeting at the replacement of the concept of HDD. The company’s updated SATA family of SSDs for data center serves for the same.

we are in the midst of an era of major data center transformation, driven by Intel. The Intel’s new technologies are the newest in the long series of innovations.-Bill Leszinske. -VP of Intel

These are the ones that make storing and accessing data more convenient for consumers, delivering enhanced values. From financial decisions to VR gaming, every daily aspect revolves around data these days, he pointed out. Intel is up for endorsing evolutions in quick and reliable access to the data.

Following are details on the new technologies.

‘Ruler’ Form Factor of Intel’s new technologies

It gets such a name for its long and skinny shape. It works with PCIe card slots, delivering non-volatile storage in eliminating constraints on shape and size. This enhances storage capacity on a server while delivering according to lowest power and cooling needs.

The next-gen Ruler form factor SSDs, packing Intel’s 3D NAND technology, will lead storage capacity up to 1PB in 1U server. As a result, this guarantees about 300,000 HD movies or approximately 70 years of unending entertainment. Both Optane and NAND in the Ruler will be available in the markets soon.

Intel Optane Technology Webcast

Intel VP Laura Crone along with Leszinske hosted a webcast earlier, featuring consumer feedbacks. These feedbacks outlined the progressive influences offered by Intel Optane technology. The fields majorly covered are health care enhancement, transformed financial transactions, real-time analytics, and capitalization of Intel Xeon CPU performances. Watch the webcast replay here.


Intel’s new technologies also include dual port SSDs and SATA series SSDs. Dual port Optane and 3D NAND Intel SSDs provide critical redundancies and failover. These are good enough to substitute SAS SSDs and HDDs. These can offer more bandwidth, more IOPs, and lower latency, alongside new storage facility. The series of these SSDs will be available in the markets during the 3rd quarter of this year.

As for the SATA SSDs for data centers, these offer in preserving legacy infrastructure, and simple transition of data from HDD. Ultimately, these enable data centers to diminish storage cost, increment server efficiency and minimize service disruptions. The newest members of the second-gen Intel 3D NAND SSD series are available now in the markets.


The coming August 9 will see Santa Clara of California host Flash Memory Summit, where Leszinske will share further details on these products. The summit will also include demos of the new SSDs.
