We recently launched a new Direct Attached Storage option for Internap’s bare-metal configurations. Customers with data-intensive workloads will benefit from Intel’s faster, more robust S3710 series Solid State Disks, which are now available across all of our bare-metal server locations.
Customers with intensive write applications or who simply require higher IOPS than Intel’s DC S3500 series will find this upgrade very useful. S3710 series SSDs can increase random write IOPS by more than three times compared with the S3500s, meaning more transactions for every storage dollar spent.
|Intel DC S3500||Intel DC S3710|
|Endurance Rating (lifetime write)||Up to 880TBW||Up to 24.3PBW|
|Sequential Read||Up to 500MB/s||Constant 550MB/s|
|Sequential Write||Up to 450MB/s||Up to 520MB/s|
|Random Read (100% span)||Up to 65,000 IOPS||Up to 85,000 IOPS|
|Random Write (100% span)||Up to 14,600 IOPS||Up to 45,000 IOPS|
|Overprovisioning Firmware Fix||No||Yes|
The S3710 is available in four options:
- 200GB @ $150/SSD/mo
- 400GB @ $300/SSD/mo
- 800GB @ $600/SSD/mo
- 1.2TB @ $900/SSD/mo
The upgrade to the S3710 series SSDs goes a long way in improving performance of write-heavy or IOPS-intensive applications.
To order the new S3710 series SSDs, new customers can call 1.877.843.7627 or chat with us, and existing Internap customers can contact their account executives.
