In December of 2021, Solidigm [www.solidigmtechnology.com], a subsidiary of SK hynix, acquired the NAND business from Intel Corporation, including the Intel® NAND SSD products. Legacy Intel materials will be provided until the transition is complete.
Combining the industry’s first 144-layer QLC NAND and PCIe 4.0, the read-optimized Intel® SSD D5-P5316 enables significant TCO savings while accelerating warm storage.
As data volume increases, storage becomes a growing challenge in terms of cost effectiveness, physical footprint, and performance. Built with Intel’s most advanced Quad-Level Cell NAND, the Intel® SSD D5-P5316 addresses those challenges by delivering industry-leading SSD storage density with the high bandwidth performance of a PCIe 4.0 interface. The Intel SSD D5-P5316 includes up to 30.72TB of capacity, and as an E1.L, provides up to 1 petabyte of storage in just 1U of rack space. The result is massive storage consolidation for lower TCO.
Unlock the Value of Stored Data
Based on PCIe 4.0, the SSD D5-P5316 not only accelerates legacy HDD-based systems but also prior generation Intel SSD-based systems. Compared to HDDs, Intel’s newest SSD can accelerate access to stored data by up to 25x1 while performance optimizations bring up to 2x higher sequential read performance,2 up to 38% higher random read performance, up to 48% better latency,3 and up to 5x higher endurance versus the previous generation Intel SSD family.4
In addition to increased performance, the Intel SSD D5-P5316 offers storage footprint consolidation with up to 20x reduction of warm storage footprint.5 Storage consolidation enables further operational savings, including power consumption, cooling costs, drive replacement, and technician support.
Firmware Enhancements for Drive Performance, IT efficiency, Data Security, and Manageability
The Intel SSD D5-P5316 includes numerous firmware enhancements specifically optimized for both enterprise and cloud workloads to deliver better latency,3 expanded management capabilities, and critical new NVMe features.
- NVMe 1.3c and NVMe-MI1.0a- compliant.
- Scatter Gather List (SGL) removes the need to double-buffer host data.
- Persistent Event Log exposes deeper drive history for debugging at scale.
- Designed to enhance security with AES-256 Hardware Encryption, NVMe Sanitize, Firmware Measurement.
- Telemetry makes a wide range of stored data accessible and includes intelligent error tracking and logging. This increases the reliability of finding and mitigating issues and supports accelerated qualification cycles—all of which result in increased IT efficiency.
Accelerate a Range of Data Center Workloads
The SSD D5-P5316 is designed from the ground up to optimize and accelerate storage in a range of Data Center workloads including but not limited to Content Delivery Network (CDN), Hyper Converged Infrastructure (HCI), Big Data, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Cloud Elastic Storage (CES) and, High Performance Computing (HPC). Key architectural improvements accelerate a broad range of read workloads as well as large block sequential/random writes, while maintaining fast response time SLAs. The SSD D5-P5316 can support all write sizes with a Quality of Service improvement scheme that maintains low read latency under write pressure.
NAND Technology Industry Leader
Intel’s 144-layer 3D NAND technology delivers industry-leading areal density6 and data retention,7 enabling enterprise customers to confidently scale storage arrays to meet their growing needs. The swift adoption of software-defined and hyperconverged infrastructures increases the requirement to maximize efficiency, revitalize existing hardware, and increase server agility—all while maintaining operational reliability.
