Micron Launches 5200 Series of SATA SSDs

By WPG AmericasJanuary 26, 2018

Micron Technology, a worldwide leader in memory and storage solutions, recently announced the launch of the 5200 Series of STA SSDs.

Designed for virtualized workloads that power your business, like OLTP, BI/DSS, VDI, block/object, media streaming and more, the low-latency Micron 5200 Series of SSDs help to eliminate storage bottlenecks with fast, consistent performance, and lower cost of ownership.

Engineered on industry-leading 64-layer 3D NAND, the Micron 5200 SSD delivers best-in-class performance and capacity on the same proven architecture as the 5100 series.

Key Benefits

  • Leading Performance – sequential reads/writes paired with 95,000 IOPS random reads and best-in-class random writes up to 33,000 deliver a nearly complete performance advantage over hard drives and competing read-intensive SATA SSDs.
  • Leading Capacity and TCO – Capacities up to nearly 8TB – all on industry-leading, 64-layer 3D NAND for a cost-optimized SATA platform that’s uniquely competitive against hard drives.
  • Leading Reliability – 50% more reliable than typical SATA SSDs, with the industry’s lowest annualized failure rate and MTTF (3 million hours versus the industry average of over 2 million hours).
  • Same Trusted, Proven Architecutre – Same controller. Same components. New NAND. The result is easy quals, better performance and better value.
