Big capacity. Bigger value.

Four common NQL workloads showcase the power of the Micron 6500 ION NVMe SSD.


Four reasons for NVMe

Looking for a reason to implement NVMe? Here are four.


Micron SSD portfolio

Match the perfect SSD to your unique workload.

1. Sequential write statements are based on 128KB 100% sequential write workload.

2. Random IOPS statements based on 4KB, 100% random workloads.

3. 30.72TB capacity is the largest option. User capacity: 1GB = 1 billion bytes; formatted capacity is less

4. Additional information available here:

5. Warranty valid for 5 years from the original date of purchase or before writing the maximum total bytes written (TBW) as published in the product datasheet and as measured in the product’s SMART data, whichever comes first.

6. Performance measured under the following conditions: Steady-state as defined by SNIA Solid State Storage Performance Test Specification Enterprise v1.1; Drive write cache enabled; NVMe power state 0; Sequential workloads measured using FIO with a 128K IO size and a queue depth of 32; Random read workloads measured using FIO with a 4K IO size and queue depth of 128; Random write workloads measured using FIO with a 4K IO size and a queue depth of 128.

7. Latency values measured with random workloads using FIO, 4KB transfers, queue depth = 1; Typical latency = median, 50th percentile.

8. RMS = Root Mean Square

9. Actual endurance my vary by workload.
