The evolution of NAND Flash Memory

Flash memory has been a disruptive technology from its industrial inception in the early '90s and innovation is still ongoing after more than 25 years. At the beginning it was NOR flash and Intel® was the key player. Today the most advanced storage products use NAND flash. Thanks to its storage density, NAND has changed our lives. Through continuous development, investments and improvements by flash vendors such as Intel®, the technology has become a consumer product, which allows the production of ultra-slim notebooks and save up to 2TB of data on a USB-Stick.

Storage density has been further improved by introducing a third NAND dimension: multilevel storage. In practice, each single physical cell can contain more than one bit of information. Single Level Cells (SLC) can store 1 bit per cell, Multi-Level Cells (MLC) can store 2 bits per cell, while TLC refers to cells that can store 3 digital bits. Quadruple Level Cells (QLC) will become a reality relatively soon with Intel® planning to release a NAND that can store up to 4 bit per cell in Q3 2018.

However, this was not enough for a market that demands products with high storage density. For example the release of thin smartphones brought along severe space constraints. Their impressive selling volumes forced the market to find another storage dimension (the fourth one): multi-die stacking. In other words, several pieces of silicon are stacked inside a single physical package, one on top of each other.

In 2013, the fifth storage dimension in the history of flash was introduced: 3D NAND. 3D NAND are multiple layers (currently up to 48) of memory cells that are grown within the same piece of silicon. 3D is a new technology, not only because of its multi-layer architecture, but also because it is based on a new type of NAND memory cell.

Intel®: Pioneering and leading the way in the flash technology market

From a manufacturing point of view the existing flash cells have reached their maximum shrinking potential. A flash cell size that initially started out with a size of 350nm in 1997 has in recent years evolved to a cell size of 12nm. On the one hand the shrinking process enabled manufacturers to produce more flash cells on a single wafer, which arguably led to lower prices for flash and enabled manufacturers to produce chips with higher capacities. However, the shrinking process also brought along several technical limitations to manufacturers. With the shrinking of the flash cells the number of electrons becomes substantially less. This in turn leads to a radically lower count of electrons, which has to be compensated by creating more sophisticated firmware and technology to sustain the reliability, endurance and data retention of the final Solid State Drive (SSD) product. Intel®'s solution to the limitations of shrinking: Layering the cells on top of each other!

Transitioning from 2D to 3D NAND TLC 64-Layers

3D NAND 64-Layer Technology

Intel® is the first company to market the new 3D NAND 64-Layer technology. The technology behind this is just as it sounds - 64 layers of storage stacked on top of each other. Intel®'s 3D NAND uses a 'floating gate' architecture, which is manufactured on a high-volume process. This architecture is capable of the best areal density and provides room for scalability in the future. It works by using a smaller cell size and placing control logic under the memory array. The structure consists of multiple layers of flash cells while being able to store three bits per cell. Just like a skyscraper can shelter more people in comparison to a single story house, so too can a 3D-NAND flash cell store more data than a 2D flash cell. By having better areal density, Intel® can scale to larger capacities by delivering more gigabytes per wafer. As a result of this innovative technology Intel® can produce SSD drives that can go all the way up to 64TB! The price to performance ratio is the key advantage of the technology while at the same time delivering consistently more performance, using less power, and offering great reliability over time. Overall, Intel®'s 3D NAND solutions are a cost effective and technological upgrade that delivers noticeable value.

Scale to bigger capacities
  • Up to 11% higher areal density on the flash cell itself in comparison to other flash manufacturers
  • More GB per wafer
  • Up to 1.2x more GB/mm² per flash cell
  • Up to 7x bits per wafer
Outstanding data integrity
  • Reduction in Raw Bit Error Rate (RBER)
  • Improved data retention
  • Improved data cycling
  • Improved SSD endurance values
Unprecedented performance
  • Up to 1.3x faster read and write performance
  • Reduced drive latency
  • Outstanding and consistent queue depth values right from the start
  • Improved power saving efficiency

Intel® Optane™ with 3D-XPoint Technology – Breakthrough in flash technology

3D-XPoint Flash Technology

Intel®’s latest innovation is the 3D-XPoint Flash technology, which is a breakthrough that creates a new class of memory that greatly reduces the cost, performance and power trade-offs that most system builders make when they design storage and memory solutions. 3D-XPoint is a unique constellation of advanced materials with a cross point structure that resembles a three dimensional chess board and does not include a single transistor. 3D-XPoint functions as a cache system for your primary storage drive, storing necessary data, similarly to RAM, but holding on to the data between restarts. The booting of programmes and software is as fast as a DRAM while at the same time having the feature of saving data permanently like a SSD and HDD.

In essence, 3D-XPoint offers the best of both technologies: Permanent storage (non-volatile memory) and fast working memory (volatile memory).

Ruler Form Factor – P4500 (8TB)

Intel® developed a new form factor class with the primary use-case target towards data centers - the "Ruler" also known as Enterprise & Datacenter Storage Form Factor (EDSFF). The "Ruler" form factor was designed to fully optimize rack efficiency while at the same time offer a solution that deals effectively with the data-centric world.

In comparison to traditional Solid State Drive form factors (2.5-inch, M.2, and Add-In-Cards) the Ruler delivers unparalleled space-efficient capacity. The efficient thermal design allows a smart consolidation of storage devices into a single storage server rack while at the same time reducing the energy footprint, which significantly improves the operational efficiency.

Moreover, the revolutionary design makes the ruler easy to maintain. The ruler form factor is hot pluggable, hot removable and is fitted with LEDs that indicate the status of the device, which improves the total manageability in a large scale.

Space Conscious Dimensions

Space efficient capacity per Drive

The space conscious and efficient drive design has a width of 9.5mm, length of 323.35mm and a height of 38.6mm. This design enables the accommodation of up to 36 media sites on a single drive and is optimized for 1U server designs.

Storage density per Server

The space-efficient capacity of the ruler form factor can be highlighted in the designated use case in a 1U Intel® AF1000 server. The AF1000 can fit up to 32 Intel® ruler SSDs per server. The P4500 is currently the only series that offers the ruler form factor and is available in two capacities - 4.0TB and 8.0TB. Consequently, when the 1U server is fully utilized with 8.0TB ruler SSDs, the server can reach a Terabyte (TB) per rack storage volume of up to 256TB.

In the near future Intel® is planning to release a 3D NAND based 32TB ruler SSD. This would result in a TB per rack storage volume of over 1PetaByte (PB) in 1U server! This is opening new use cases in warm storage with disruptive total cost of ownership.

Space Efficient Capacity

  • Storage density optimized design delivers higher per drive capacity
  • 1U optimized form factor delivers up to 32 drives per U for higher per server capacity

Operational Efficiency

In a data center environment serviceability and thermal efficiency are key variables to improve operations and drive down the total cost of ownership (TCO). The ruler form factor fulfils these requirements by allowing an unhindered airflow and being fitted with a connector "sail" that is located behind the drive and connects down to the horizontal backplane. This design eliminates the possibility of blocked airflow, which can be the case with vertical backplane designs. Moreover, internal studies show that due to the large surface area of the drive the ruler form factor is 55% more thermally efficient in comparison to a U.2 15mm device.

Changing from a traditional legacy form factor (Add-In-Card, U.2, and M.2) to the ruler form factor enables customers to reduce capital expenditures for servers by up to a factor of 3, consolidation from 6U to 1U for a factor 6 improvement, and reduce the power requirements of the SSDs (excluding servers, backplanes, fans, etc.) by a factor of 2.

Efficient Management at Scale

The ruler form factor is a unique and practical design that allows fully front serviceable storage, making it an ideal and highly practical solution in a data center environment. The ruler is hot pluggable, hot removable, fitted with LEDs to indicate the status of the device, and can be easily scaled to larger capacities.

The LEDs on the ruler are programmable, which can help to locate out of order drives, failed drives and free slots. Also, the LEDs indicate whether the data on the SSD is being read or whether data is being written on the SSD as well as illuminating the status (warnings, temperatures, failed drives).

Operationally Efficient Design

  • Up to 55% more thermally efficient than 15mm U.2
  • Consolidate racks to reduce Opex
  • System-based design approach enables more efficient solutions

Efficient Management at Scale

  • Front loading and hot swappable
  • Integrated power cycling enables remote, drive specific reboot
  • Expanded and programmable LEDs enable indication of more device states
Target use case
  • Optimized dimensions for 1U sever designs
  • Cloud Storage
  • Scale Out Storage
  • Hard Drive Replacement
Key advantages
  • High capacity per drive and per server and per rack
  • Improved manageability and serviceability
  • Efficient thermal design
  • Reduced maintenance costs and total cost of ownership
  • Integrated enclosure, latch, LEDs
Key features
  • Shares new NVMe controller and improved firmware stack with DC P4500 with up to 32TB
  • Hot pluggable
  • Hot removable
  • Programmable LEDs
  • Indications of activity and status

The space conscious and efficient drive design has a width of 9.5mm, length of 323.35mm and a height of 38.6mm. The connector is called SFF-TA-1002 and is fitted with a PCIe 3.1 interface (up to eight-lane). Currently the ruler is available with the P4500 series in two capacity options - 4.0TB and 8.0TB.

P4800X fitted with Intel® Optane™ – The world’s most responsive Data Center SSD

New possibilities with Intel® Optane™ Technology

The Optane™ storage technology opens up new possibilities for high performance desktops and workstations, empowering professional users, creators and enthusiasts to do more. When you integrate the revolutionary architecture of 3D-XPoint memory media with a custom controller and firmware into an SSD, you get a storage device that delivers an industry leading combination of low latency, high endurance, quality of service and high throughput.

The innovative Optane™ solution is optimized to break through storage bottlenecks by providing a new data tier, which makes it an ideal technology to be deployed in a data center environment. For example, the powerful P4800X accelerates applications for fast caching and storage, increases scale per server and reduces transaction costs. All of which enables the customer to deploy bigger and more affordable datasets to gain new insights from larger memory pools.

More Throughput

82% of common workloads happen at a queue depth - the number of commands waiting to be processed by the central processing unit (CPU) - of four or less, which means that storage devices optimized for low QD performance tend to increase system performance. Intel® Optane™ fitted devices are designed to improve transfer inputs and output per second by a factor of 5-8 in comparison to NAND-based SSDs. Generally, Intel® Optane™ delivers faster performance across all ranges of queue depth as well as provides extremely low latency.

Higher Endurance

Write endurance determines how often and how thoroughly the flash media can be used. The estimated longevity of the flash device is based on the amount of data written and erased per day. Simply put, the endurance affects the life expectancy and costs of SSDs. Intel® Optane™ is designed for the most storage demanding workloads, providing industry-leading endurance. The P4800X is the flagship of endurance, as it is designed for high write environment and can withstand intense write traffic. With its extremely high endurance - 41 PetaBytes Written - the P4800X offers unprecedented value and longevity.

Lower Latency

Deploying Intel® Optane™ in data centers showcases true ground breaking performance in realizing consistent response times under any workload. Performing random write operations on SSDs based on NAND flash technology require a significant amount of background media management, which can create noticeable delays to the read operations. The Intel® DC P4800X, fitted with Optane™ memory media, maintains consistent read response times regardless of the write throughput applied to the drive.

More Quality of Service

More data is expected to be generated and stored, which calls for faster data processing and deployable solutions that enable predictably fast service. Quality of service - a measure of delays in data access times - is measured by the read response time in microseconds over an extended period of time. Intel® Optane™ greatly reduces delays in data access time, which results in faster times to gain insight into the requested data.
