Data Center SSDs

Fast Data for Fast Decision-Making

Accelerate Access to Critical Data for Data-Intensive Workloads and Applications

The exponential growth of data in the digital age has led to a rapid paradigm shift in traditional storage infrastructures. For the last several decades, data center applications such as Big Data, analytics, and industrial automation have demanded stringent storage requirements. These architectures are reaching their limits.

With the increased adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and other IoT applications, data center storage infrastructure is being asked to revolutionize performance, reliability, and endurance that support and enable complex high-capacity workloads. NVMe™ flash Enterprise Solid State Drives (eSSDs) have emerged as the medium of choice for AI and other applications that accelerate data center workloads so you can achieve maximum throughout and transform your data into actionable insights for your whole team.

In addition to NVMe, key advancements in NAND and innovations including QLC (quad-level cell) flash memory have enabled enhanced performance across our portfolio, benefitting a wide range of business applications. Learn more about each of these key innovations below.


Leveraging decades of expertise in NAND flash memory, our innovations in both vertical and lateral scaling allow greater capacity in a smaller die with fewer layers.


Designed for high-performance, NVMe is a protocol that is well suited for highly demanding and compute intensive enterprise, cloud, and edge data ecosystems.


Quad-level cell (QLC) flash memory is a capacity-optimized NAND memory technology that delivers a per-terabyte cost that matches or beats hard-disk drives (HDDs).
