SAN FRANCISCO — MICRON INSIGHT — Micron Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq: MU), unveiled new solid-state drives (SSDs) that expand Micron’s broad portfolio of drives available to both consumer and enterprise customers for storing the world’s data. The new Micron® 7300 NVMe series and Micron® 5300 SATA series of SSDs enable enterprises to modernize, economize and maximize return on their data center investments.

Addressing consumers’ need for mobility, Micron also announced its entry into the consumer portable SSD market with the launch of its Crucial® X8 Portable SSD.

“We are excited to introduce these new products that significantly expand our addressable market — with mainstream NVMe SSDs for the datacenter and portable SSDs for consumers — while building on our leadership in enterprise SATA SSDs,” said Sumit Sadana, executive vice president and chief business officer of Micron. “Micron’s growing portfolio of high-value storage solutions is built on industry-leading 3D NAND technology and provides customers a broad set of options to address their increasing data storage needs.”

Analyst firm IDC forecasts that the world’s data will grow from 33ZB in 2018 to 175ZB in 2025.2 Data centers will require higher-performance enterprise-class drives that can sustain heavy workloads to ensure that organizations have faster access to their data. In parallel, growing volumes of data are increasing average capacities in enterprise and consumer drives. The new SSDs deliver on Micron’s commitment to provide differentiated solutions that store data across all market segments and needs, from consumer to cloud.

Micron 7300 NVMe Series SSDs

The Micron 7300 NVMe series of SSDs are designed for workloads that demand high throughput and low latency. They are ideal for commonly used mixed read-write, compute and virtualized tasks such as SQL and NoSQL, for hyperconverged infrastructures, and for computecentric cloud platforms. The use of 96-layer 3D TLC NAND technology brings cost and power efficiencies while the drives offer end-to-end data path protection, power-loss protection, secure firmware and instant secure erase capability.

The 7300 NVMe series come in a wide variety of form factors, capacities and endurance levels. The drives will be available for ordering starting in December 2019. The 7300 series of drives complement Micron’s existing data center portfolio, which includes the high-performance 9300 NVMe SSDs announced earlier this year.
