Micron 5400 SATA SSDs Released

Micron 5400 SATA SSD

Micron Technology has announced they are shipping the new Micron 5400, the world’s first 176-layer NAND SATA SSDs for data centers, available in both 2.5-inch and M.2 form factors. The Micron 5400 allows data center operators to install new servers (or upgrade existing ones) while continuing to use the SATA interface and provides a viable alternative to lower capacity 10K and 7.2K SATA HDDs. The Micron 5400 is available in both 2.5-inch and M.2 form factors.

Micron 5400 – Boot, Pro and Max

Looking at the 2.5-inch form factor, it features two versions: Pro and Max. The former is designed for read-intensive workloads, while the latter is more suited for mixed-use. The 2.5-inch 5400 Pro is available in capacities ranging from 240GB to a hefty 7.68TB and the 5400 Max ranges in sizes from 480GB to 3.84GB.

The 5400 M.2 (22×80) version comes in Boot and Pro models. The Boot version is meant for very read-intensive use cases, and features a single 240GB capacity, while the Pro (also meant for read-intensive workloads) features 240GB, 480GB, and 980GB sizes.

As far as performance goes for the 2.5-inch form factor, all models and capacities are quoted to deliver 540MB/s in sequential reads. Sequential writes are mostly the same across the board as well (at 520MB/s) with the exception of the 240GB Pro model, which is set at 350MB/s. For random performance, both the 5400 Pro (480GB-3.8TB) and Max (480GB, 960GB, and 3.84TB) are expected to reach up to 95,000 IOPS in reads, while writes are quoted to deliver up to 37,000 IOPS for the Pro and 65,000 IOPS for the Max.

Performance for the M.2 form factor includes quoted sequential speeds up to 540MB/s read and 290MB/s write, while the Pro version is expected to hit up to 540MB/s read and 520MB/s write for the highest capacity model.

The new Micron 2.5-inch drive has a 3-million-hour rating MTTF across all models, while endurance is specced at 1.5 DWPD for the Pro and up to 5 DWPD for the Max. Endurance is 1.0 and 1.5 DWPD for the M.2 form factor Boot and Pro version, respectively.
