Micron Technology, Inc. announced a new portfolio of PCI Express (PCIe) solid-state storage systems, the RealSSD™ P320h solid-state drive (SSD) series. The RealSSD P320h series targets data-intensive enterprise applications including cloud computing, high-performance computing, data analytics, business intelligence, and video on demand.
The P320h system uses Micron's 34-nanometer (nm) single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash memory technology, which provides two different user capacities: 350 gigabyte (GB) and 700GB.
The P320h achieves up to 3GBs of sustained data throughput per second. In terms of input/output operations per second (IOPS), the P320h series reaches a maximum of 750,000 IOPS read and 341,000 IOPS write speeds.The P320h features Micron's proprietary redundant array of independent NAND (RAIN) management technology that is designed to ensure enterprise-class data protection by replicating data across the NAND flash memory channels. The P320h drive also provides enterprise-class levels of endurance with the 700GB drive able to write 28 terabytes of data every day for five years.

The first products in Micron's P320h series will be available in a full height, half-length form factor, measuring 111.15mm wide x 167.65mm long x 14.47mm thick. Micron has additional PCIe form factors under development, with introductions planned for later this year. Micron is now sampling the P320h, with mass production expected to begin in the third quarter.
