Micron has unveiled its newest 5100 series enterprise SSDs that will feature a SATA interface and be based on 3D TLC NAND, aiming at servers and data centers.

The new Micron 5100 series enterprise SDDs will be available in capacities ranging from 240GB to 8TB as well as in three different versions, depending on both performance and endurance. The entire lineup uses Micron's 384Gb 32-layer 3D TLC NAND, Marvell's 88SS1074 controller and a SATA 6Gbps interface.

The lineup starts with the 5100 ECO series that will be available in 2.5-inch 7mm form-factor and 480GB, 960GB, 1920GB, 3840GB and 7680GB capacities as well as single-sided M.2 2280 form-factor in 480GB, 960GB and 1920GB capacities. The sequential read and write performance peaks at 540MB/s and 380 to 520MB/s while the 4K random read and write performance hits 93K and 9K to 31K IOPS. It has an endurance rating of 0.45 to 8.4PB, depending on the capacity.

The Micron 5100 PRO series is a bit more performance oriented and will also be available in a 2.5-inch 7mm form-factor but in 240GB, 480GB, 960GB, 1920GB and 3840GB capacities as well as a single-sided M.2 2280 form-factor in 240GB, 480GB, 960GB and 1920GB capacities. The sequential read and write performance peaks at 540MB/s and 250 to 520MB/s, while random 4K read and write hits 78K to 93K IOPS and 26K to 43K IOPS, depending on the capacity.

The Micron 5100 PRO series also has a higher endurance rating of 0.65 to 17.6PB.

The "high-end" 5100 MAX SSD series is only available in 2.5-inch form-factor and comes in 240GB, 480GB, 960GB and 1920GB capacities, has a sequential read and write performance of up to 540MB/s and 310 to 520MB/s, with random 4K read and write peaking at 93K and 48K to 74K IOPS. It also has the highest endurance rating of 2.2 to 17.6PB rating.

The entire lineup also has optional TCG Enterprise and FIPS 140-2 validation encryption as well as Flex Capacity, full power-loss protection and more.

Unfortunately, Micron did not unveil details about the price but did note that 2.5-inch form-factor 5100 series models with capacities of up to 2TB as well as M.2 form-factor in capacities of up to 960GB are already in production while other should be coming at a later date.
