Features

The Intel S4600 Mainstream SATA SSDs have the following features:

  • Industry-standard 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch form factors
  • Cost-effective Intel 3D NAND TLC Flash Memory
  • Endurance of 3 drive writes per day (DWPD) for 5 years, using Intel High Endurance Technology (HET). The total number of bytes that can be written to the drive (TBW) is as follows
    • 240 GB drive: 1.40 PB
    • 480 GB drive: 2.95 PB
    • 960 GB drive: 5.25 PB
    • 1.92 TB drive: 10.84 PB
  • SATA TLC 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 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

The key difference between Performance SSDs such as the S3710 SSDs, Mainstream SSDs such as the S4600 SSDs, and Entry SSDs, such as the S4500 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. Mainstream SSDs have better endurance than the Entry 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 S4600 Mainstream 480 GB drive has an endurance of 2,950 TB of total bytes written (TBW). This means that for full operation over five years, write workload must be limited to no more than 1,616 GB of writes per day, which is equivalent to 3.4 full drive writes per day (DWPD). For the device to last three years, the drive write workload must be limited to no more than 2,694 GB of writes per day, which is equivalent to 5.6 full drive writes per day.

Operating system support

SSDs operate transparently to users, storage systems, applications, databases, and operating systems.

Operating system support is based on the controller used to connect to the drives. Consult the controller propduct guide for more information:

Warranty

The Intel S4600 Mainstream 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.
