Introduction

The S3520 Enterprise Entry SATA solid-state drives (SSDs) for Lenovo servers use Intel 3D NAND flash memory technology with a SATA 6Gbps interface to provide an affordable solution with industry leading performance. Compared with the Intel S3510 series, these new drives offer significantly improved endurance and lower power consumption. The S3520 SSDs are optimized for read-intensive applications such as boot, web servers, lower data rate operational databases and analytics.

The S3520 is shown in the following figure.

Features

The Intel S3520 Enterprise Entry SATA SSDs have the following features:

  • Industry standard 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch form factors
  • Cost-effective Intel 3D Multi-Level Cell (MLC) NAND flash memory
  • Endurance of 1.0 drive writes per day (DWPD) for 5 years, using Intel Standard Endurance Technology (SET). This equates to a total bytes written (TBW) value of:
    • 240 GB drive: 599 TB
    • 480 GB drive: 945 TB
    • 800 GB drive: 1663 TB
    • 960 GB drive: 1750 TB
    • 1.2 TB drive: 2455 TB
    • 1.6 TB drive: 2925 TB
  • 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 savings, with 3.5 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

SSDs have a huge but finite number of program/erase (P/E) cycles, which affect how long they can perform write operations and thus their life expectancy. Enterprise Entry SSDs typically have a better cost per read IOPS ratio but lower endurance and performance compared to Enterprise Performance SSDs. 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 total bytes written (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. However, 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 S3520 480 GB drive has an endurance of 945 TB of total bytes written (TBW). This means that for full operation over five years, write workload must be limited to no more than 518 GB of writes per day, which is equivalent to 1.1 full drive writes per day (DWPD). For the device to last three years, the drive write workload must be limited to no more than 863 GB of writes per day, which is equivalent to 1.8 full drive writes per day.

Warranty

The Intel S3520 Enterprise Entry 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 servers’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.

Physical specifications

The drives have the following physical specifications (approximate, without the tray):

  • Height: 7 mm (0.3 in.)
  • Width: 70 mm (2.8 in.)
  • Depth: 100 mm (4.0 in.)
  • Weight: 66 g (0.15 lb)

Shipping dimensions and weight - 2.5-inch drives (approximate, including the tray):

  • Height: 63 mm (2.5 in.)
  • Width: 174 mm (6.9 in.)
  • Depth: 133 mm (5.2 in.)
  • Weight: 434 g (1.0 lb)

Shipping dimensions and weight - 3.5-inch drives (approximate, including the tray):

  • Height: 95 mm (3.7 in.)
  • Width: 257 mm (10.1 in.)
  • Depth: 193 mm (7.6 in.)
  • Weight: 484 g (1.1 lb)

Operating environment

The SSDs are supported in the following environment:

  • Temperature: 0 - 70°C (32 - 158°F)
  • Relative humidity: 5 - 95% (noncondensing)
  • Maximum altitude: 3,050 m (10,000 ft)

Agency approvals

The Intel S3520 Enterprise Entry SATA SSDs conform to the following regulations:

  • FCC Title 47, Part 15B, Class B
  • CA/CSA-CEI/IEC CISPR 22:02
  • EN 55024: 1998
  • EN 55022: 2006
