The 9200 family of NVMe U.2 SSDs was released earlier this year, but Micron just expanded the lineup with two new models, presented at SC17 trade show. These are the 8 TB and 11 TB 9200 ECO U.2 SSD models that come in PCIe x4 and x8 versions. The U.2 form-factor is used in enterprise servers and is bulkier than normal SATA SSDs.
Aimed at write-intensive applications, the 9200 ECO models have an endurance ranging between 11.7 - 16.1 Petabytes. The PCIe x4 versions performance stats include up to 3.35 GB/s sequential read speeds and 2.4 GB/s sequential write speeds, with 800K IOPS random reads and random writes that range between 95 – 110K IOPS. The advanced PCIe x8 models can get up to 5.5 GB/s for sequential reads and up to 3.5 GB/s for sequential writes, while the random reads and writes go up to 900K IOPS and 12K IOPS, respectively. All the 9200 ECO SSDs come with special features like 32-layer 3D TLC NAND memory, Flex Capacity, power loss protection, end-to-end data path protection, and also feature 2 million device hours mean-time-before-failure.
Micron did not provide any availability or pricing information for the time being.
