Introduction

The Intel S3710 Enterprise Performance SATA solid-state drives (SSDs) for System x use 20nm Intel NAND flash memory technology with SATA 6Gbps interface to provide a high-performance, high-endurance storage solution in either 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch drive form factor.

The Intel SSD S3710 drives with 10 full drives writes per day (DWD) are an excellent choice for applications demanding high write performance, such as High Performance Computing (HPC), High Definition Imaging and Video (HDIV), high data rate analytics and databases, large-scale virtualization, and video on demand content delivery.

The Intel S3710 Enterprise Performance SATA solid-state drive is shown in the following figure.

Features

The Intel S3710 Enterprise Performance SATA SSDs have the following features:

  • Industry-standard 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch form factors
  • Cost-effective Intel 20 nm Multi-Level Cell (MLC) NAND flash memory
  • Endurance of 10 drive writes per day (DWPD) for 5 years, using Intel High Endurance Technology (HET). This equates to a total bytes written (TBW) value of:
    • 200 GB drive: 3.6 PB
    • 400 GB drive: 8.3 PB
    • 800 GB drive: 16.9 PB
  • SATA MLC solid-state drive with high read performance and consistently low latencies to fulfill client needs in the enterprise space
  • High reliability and enhanced ruggedness
  • Energy saving, with 6.9 W typical power consumption per drive
  • Absence of moving parts to reduce potential failure points in the server
  • S.M.A.R.T. support
  • Advanced Encrypting Standard (AES) 256-bit encryption
  • Full end-to-end data path protection
  • Thermal throttling to extend the life of the drive
  • Enhanced power loss data protection

The key difference between Enterprise Performance SSDs such as the S3710 SSDs and Enterprise Entry SSDs, such as the S3510 SSDs, is their endurance (life expectancy). SSDs have a huge, but finite, number of program/erase (P/E) cycles, which determines how long the drives can perform write operations and thus their life expectancy. Enterprise Performance SSDs have better endurance than the Enterprise Value SSDs, but at a higher cost/IOPS ratio.

SSD write endurance is typically measured by the number of program/erase cycles that the drive can incur over its lifetime, which is listed as TBW in the device specification. The TBW value that is assigned to a solid-state device is the total bytes of written data that a drive can be guaranteed to complete. Reaching this limit does not cause the drive to immediately fail; the TBW simply denotes the maximum number of writes that can be guaranteed.

A solid-state device does not fail upon reaching the specified TBW, but at some point after surpassing the TBW value (and based on manufacturing variance margins), the drive reaches the end-of-life point, at which time the drive goes into read-only mode. Because of such behavior, careful planning must be done to use SSDs in the application environments to ensure that the TBW of the drive is not exceeded before the required life expectancy.

For example, the Intel S3710 200GB Enterprise Performance SATA G3HS 2.5" SSD has an endurance of 3,600 TB (3.6 PB) of total bytes written (TBW) over five years. This means that for full operation over five years, write workload must be limited to no more than 2 TB of writes per day. For the device to last in three years, the drive write workload must be limited to no more than 3.3 TB of writes per day.

Warranty

The Intel S3710 Enterprise Performance SATA SSDs carry a one-year, customer-replaceable unit (CRU) limited warranty. When the SSDs are installed in a supported server, these drives assume the system’s base warranty and any warranty upgrades.

Solid State Memory cells have an intrinsic, finite number of program/erase cycles that each cell can incur. As a result, each solid state device has a maximum amount of program/erase cycles to which it can be subjected. The warranty for Lenovo solid state drives (SSDs) is limited to drives that have not reached the maximum guaranteed number of program/erase cycles, as documented in the Official Published Specifications for the SSD product. A drive that reaches this limit may fail to operate according to its Specifications.
