Micron Technology, Inc. today introduced Micron 1100 SATA and Micron 2100 PCIe NVMe, two new solid state drive (SSD) product lines designed to tackle client computing workloads from web browsing and email, to video editing and auto CAD design.
Enhancing Micron’s portfolio of client data storage solutions, these next-generation 3D NAND flash SSDs deliver the security, performance, endurance, efficiency and capacity that IT administrators, OEMs and power users crave.
The Micron 1100 and 2100 SSD product families are designed to address the storage demands of today’s most challenging client computing platforms, including Ultrabook and tablets as well as performance-oriented PC desktops and workstations. Micron’s newest line of 3D NAND SSDs delivers the speed, capacity and power needed to handle massive files, images and multimedia workloads.
“With the growing demands of mobile computing driving the need for high-capacity, high-performance NAND flash technology, Micron is well-positioned for growth,” said Gregory Wong, President, Forward Insights. “Leadership in the client SSD market will be won by the innovator that successfully increases power efficiency without sacrificing security and performance.”
“Micron is raising the bar for power-efficient, high-performance storage and revolutionizing the client computing experience for all users, from the board room to the class room,” said Darren Thomas, vice president of storage at Micron. “Now our customers can future-proof their machines of tomorrow with the newest line of 3D NAND SSDs from Micron - all at an attractive cost compared to HDDs.”
Key benefits across both drive lines include:
Power Efficiency - Micron maximizes efficiency by reducing power consumption to deliver deep energy savings for notebooks and desktops alike, extending device battery life and user productivity.
Performance –Dynamic Write Acceleration has been optimized for common client computing environments, where data writing operations tend to occur in bursts, offering the increased performance without decreasing user capacity.
Security - In today’s world, protecting valuable data is a top priority. The Micron 1100 and 2100 SSDs deliver top-of-the-line solid secure features, by placing parameters at the core to protect user data.
Durability - Each Micron SSD is carefully designed for an intended workload, meeting the necessary endurance and reliability specifications required.
Manageability – With Micron’s Storage Executive software, a simple interface enables users to proactively monitor drive health and perform firmware updates. Additionally, the sanitize feature allows users to easily erase, repurpose and retire an SSD.
Micron 1100 and 2100 3D NAND SSDs are now sampling with key OEMs. The 1100 SSD is expected to begin production in July with the 2100 SSD expected to follow in summer of 2016.
