Micron Technology has introduced the 9200 Series of NVMe SSDs, the company's latest flagship solid-state storage family. The new Micron 9200 SSD combines the capacity of 3D NAND with the NVM Express (NVMe) protocol. Built from the ground up to remove legacy layers of hard drive interfaces, Micron's second generation of NVMe drives offers the speed of solid state nonvolatile memory to maximize data center efficiency for optimal total cost of ownership (TCO), according to Micron.
The capacity and performance of Micron 9200 SSDs combine NVMe protocols on a PCIe connection to enable the fast enterprise flash performance - up to 10X faster than the typical SATA SSDs on the market - while conserving power and rack space with its 3D NAND high-density storage, according to the vendor. The 9200 is one of the first NVMe SSDs on the market with a capacity exceeding 10TB.
