Since the dawn of the microchip and microprocessors, Intel has captivated the world with some of the most high tech gear on the planet. Intel was among the first to pioneer dual core and quad core processors, mother board circuitry, and lately solid state drives. For the past couple of years Intel has made a fairly large effort to bring enterprise level technology and performance to the mainstream user base. However, it doesn’t look as if Intel plans to stay on the same path, with plans of maintaining production and advancement of consumer level microchips but not so with solid state drives.
Why has Intel rushed into the release of yet another batch of next generation solid state drives? Intel has been thriving over the course of the past 20 or so years, and more recently Intel has come to understand both consumer and enterprise technologies. More recently Intel has had to face the demands of corporate enterprises. Until the release of the Intel 710 series of solid state drives, enterprise IT experts were faced with the dilemma of choosing performance over storage size, or the other way around. With the Intel 710 series, enterprise IT no longer have to make that choice because Intel has integrated both the same reliable speed, endurance, and performance capabilities of their next generation solid state drives and improved storage capacities. The highlight of the Intel 710 series is not only the duality of performance reliability and storage improvements, but price. Enterprise level performance and now storage capacities, can be more easily afforded. However, the newly set prices of the 710 series devices is still much higher than what most home users would ever be willing to pay.
Which consumer group will the Intel 710 series of solid state drives benefit most? Since the new 710 series drives are geared toward the world of enterprise, corporate, and government institutions, business and operational leaders will reap the greatest benefits of incorporating the new device. Although the new model will be primarily used and targeted at corporate enterprises, power users and tech experts will thrive off the device as well. Many businesses will do okay without making the shift forward through Intel, but this new lineup of solid state drives will almost certainly push any enterprise in the right direction both currently, and in the years to come.
What are the device specifications, and how does the 710 differ from its predecessor? The new line of solid state drives come in 100, 200, and 300 gigabyte models. The 710 series boasts an incredible transfer rate of 5/GB per second. The most amazing feature or spec which would draw potential investors, is the new storage capacities of the 710 series. Previous enterprise models had identical transfer speed rates, but the old models were were extremely limited because they lacked properly allocated storage. Other features of the new device line, such as dimensions and weight remain exactly the same and have not changed.
All in all the new line of Intel solid state drives are worth both the investment and hassle of upgrading. Enterprise level businesses will see higher levels of employee satisfaction due to the much needed incremented storage improvements. Business setbacks due to storage limitations will become a part of the past. Maintenance is nearly unnecessary, and the level of throughput and efficiency is much higher than that which is seen in hard disk drive performance, which can be scientifically proven. Both independent business leaders and professionally trained IT specialists will come to benefit and appreciate all that can be gained from operating the new SSD’s.
