Micron 5200 Series SSDs Deliver Ultra-High Performance and Speed for Business-Critical Applications

By WPG AmericasFebruary 6, 2018

Micron Technology — a world leader in innovative memory and storage solutions — recently launched the new 5200 series of enterprise SATA SSDs, the industry’s first SSD series with 3D 64-layer NAND.

Developed on Micron’s state-of-the-art 5100 SSD series architecture, the low-latency 5200 series of SSDs promise to deliver top-class performance, capacity, consistency, and superior reliability, especially in workloads like media streaming, BI/DSS, OLTP, and VDI that are crippled by decelerating HDDs.

Key Features of Micron 5200 Series of Enterprise-Grade SATA SSDs

Industry-Leading Performance: The Micron 5200 SSDs, designed for fast random IO performance that drives virtualized applications, deliver the best-in-class 33k random writes, and up to 95k IOPS random reads, offering excellent performance in both the areas. The innovative FlexCapacity feature integrated into the SSDs enables data center managers to effortlessly adjust the SSD’s performance, capacity, and endurance to meet business-critical workload demands. 

Unprecedented Capacity: The Micron 5200 series of SATA SSDs presents the broadest SATA portfolio in the industry with up to 7.68TB capacities, nearly twice the capacity of other SSDs on the market.

Easy-to-Manage Architecture: The Micron 5200 SSDs are hot-swappable, which saves both time and money on setup with fast, easy, and affordable installations.

Outstanding Quality of Service (QoS): The Micron 5200 series of SATA SSDs delivers exceedingly efficient QoS, offering up to 99.7 percent better QoS as compared to a traditional hard disk drive.

Key Specifications of 5200 Series SSDs

The new Micron 5200 series of SATA SSDs is offered in two variants — the write-intensive 5200 PRO version, and the read-intensive 5200 ECO version — in order to suit specific use cases.
