High Availability Meets High Performance

The Intel® Optane™ SSD DC D4800X Offers:

  • 24x7 data availability with redundant paths and hot-plug capability for continued data access in the event of a failure

  • High performance, low latency data placed on Intel® Optane™ SSDs to accelerate data delivery and amplify system performance of capacity NAND SSDs

  • Use as a high speed buffer cache for warm data stored on dense high-capacity Intel® QLC 3D NAND SSDs—providing efficient storage of bulk data with increased performance


First Intel® Optane™ technology-based high availability dual port drive offering greater resiliency for enterprise storage solutions.

High availability and performance are crucial for enterprise storage architectures providing mission-critical applications, such as online transaction processing for financial services. The Intel® Optane™ SSD DC D4800X with its unique combination of dual port PCIe NVMe, consistent low latency, and high random read/write performance, delivers the performance, and capabilities required for enterprise-class storage arrays.

The SSD DC D4800X provides dual port redundancy for maximum data availability during system upgrades or a failover event, enabling enterprise class capabilities and serviceability in high availability storage systems.

Intel® Optane™ SSDs Break Through NAND Bottlenecks
Intel® Optane™ technology provides industry-leading capabilities of breakthrough performance, predictably fast service, responsiveness under load and high endurance. The first Intel® Optane™ technology-based dual port drive can break the NAND bottleneck to help deliver higher service levels to mission-critical applications and reduce transaction costs for latency sensitive workloads.

Combining breakthrough performance with data path redundancy enables enterprise storage array providers to design solutions capable of:

  • Extremely consistent and fast response times even in the presence of increasing write pressure
  • High-performance at low queue depths commonly found in enterprise workloads
  • Predictably fast service—faster than NAND SSDs
  • Supporting write-intensive workloads common in areas such as OLTP and high performance computing (HPC) with high endurance

Key Features
The dual port Intel® Optane™ SSD DC D4800X provides enterprise storage features, including hot pluggable removal and insertion, allowing in-service replacement options. Other key features include:

  • VSS (Variable Sector Size): 512, 520, 4096, 4104 bytes
  • Up to 16 multiple dynamic name spaces
  • 128 queue pair/ port
  • Reservation
  • SGL (scatter gather lists)
  • CMB (control memory buffer)
  • OPAL2.0
  • FIPs140-2

More Information

Intel® technologies’ features and benefits depend on system configuration and may require enabled hardware, software or service activation. Performance varies depending on system configuration. No computer system can be absolutely secure. Check with your system manufacturer or retailer or learn more at intel.com.

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.

Produkt- und Leistungsinformationen


Die Leistung wurde mit FIO 3.5 (ioengine = pvsync2 hipri für QD1) gemessen; Betriebssystem: CentOS* 7.3.1611 mit Kernel: 4.14.50. Bei den Messungen wurde ein gesamter Bereich logischer Blockadressen (LBA) des Laufwerks einbezogen. Betriebsmodus gesetzt auf PM0. Laufwerksformatierung mit 512-Byte-Sektoren. Gesamtleistung erzielt durch zwei Hosts, die auf zwei gleich große Namespaces auf dem Laufwerk zugreifen. Gemessener Durchschnittswert. Die Ergebnisse können je nach Konfiguration und Messfenster variieren.


Die Messung erfolgte mit FIO 3.5 auf dem Linux-Betriebssystem: CentOS* 7.3.1611 mit Kernel: 4.14.50. Quality of Service ermittelt mit 4 KB Übertragungsgröße eines randomisierten Workloads auf einer vollen LBA-Laufwerksspanne, sobald das Workload einen stabilen Status erreicht hat, jedoch einschließlich aller zum normalen Betrieb und für die Datenzuverlässigkeit notwendigen Hintergrundaktivitäten. Die Laufzeit beträgt 20 Minuten. Basiert auf randomisierten 4KB QD=1, 32 Workloads, ermittelt als der Zeitraum, den 99,9 (oder 99,99) Prozent der Befehle für den Weg vom Host zum Laufwerk und zurück benötigten.
