The Intel® SSD D3-S4610 Series is compatible with existing SATA storage infrastructure and comes in a variety of capacities. Larger capacity drives consume up to 6x lower power1 and have up to 6x lower cooling1 requirements than 2.5-inch HDDs while enabling 3.2x more data to be stored in the same amount of space.2
Grow your business without expanding your server footprint with up to 300x more IOPS/TB3 than HDDs. Also, the “Flex Workload” feature enables a common drive type to support different workloads with power-efficient performance.
High reliability reduces the need for drive replacement that is necessary with HDDs. With a 4.2x lower annualized failure rate (AFR) compared to HDDs, IT departments will spend less time and expense replacing or upgrading storage devices.4
The power and cooling claims are based on measurements versus a market available HDD. Intel® SSD D3-S4610, 960 GB and Seagate Enterprise* Performance 10K HDD 900GB 2.5” SAS 12Gbs Model ST900MM0168. Both testing a workload of 128 KB (131,072 bytes) at a Queue Depth equal to 32 sequential writes using FIO*. The benefit calculated as a function of the workload efficiency ratio by lower power ratio. Source – Intel.

Increase data stored per rack unit up to 3.2x vs. 2.5” HDD; Intel® SSD D3-S4610 at 2.5” 7.68TB (available 2019) vs. Seagate Enterprise* Performance 10K SAS HDD 2.5” 2.4TB. Source: Intel.
The performance per 1TB claim is based on measurements versus a market available HDD. Intel® SSD D3-S4610, 960 GB and Seagate Enterprise* Performance 10K HDD 900GB 2.5” SAS 12Gbs Model ST900MM0168. Both testing a workload of 4 KB (4,096 bytes) at a queue depth equal to 32 random reads using FIO*. Performance advantage is normalized to 1TB of drive capacity. Source – Intel.
