Micron 9300 Series Enterprise SSD Review (Page 4)

Final Thoughts

Micron tells us the 9300 Series is the most power-efficient and cost-efficient enterprise SSDs to date. The series is certainly impressive from a performance standpoint, but its larger capacity also reduces operating expenditure at the rack level.

It's been several generations since we've seen SSDs capable of delivering similar sequential reads and writes. With the transition to 3-bit per cell media this was thought to be a lost art without ample overprovisioning that shot costs beyond acceptable levels. Micron not only brought read and write performance in line, but also pegged the meter with 3,500 MB/s, near the top of what is possible with only four PCI Express 3.0 lanes.

With two distinct but closely tied products in the 9300 Series, administrators can use a single product family to cover several workloads. The different SKUs make the 9300 Series ideal for so many workloads we have to consider these as "general purpose" to some degree.

While many other companies offer different products for caching, AI/ML/DL training, HFT, and databases, the Micron 9300 Series bests the requirements of each category.

Of the enterprise SSDs, I've tested this year, it would be difficult to recommend anything other than the Micron 9300 Series for most use cases and workloads.
