Just when you thought the storage world was going a little quiet, Intel has come to the table and thrown everything on the ground to announce its new Intel Solid-State Drive Professional Family, which includes the Intel Solid-State Drive Pro 1500 Series.
The new drives are geared toward business-class clients, and are engineered specifically for "easy IT deployment and secure manageability, and offer a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) with enhanced performance." The Intel SSD Pro 1500 Series has some nifty features, where it can protect your data from unauthorized access with its enterprise-grade security features.
These security features include hardware-based 256-bit AES encryption and industry-standard Opal key management protocols. Intel has designed the new Intel SSD Pro 1500 Series SSDs to work with its Haswell-based fourth-generation Core processors with Intel vPro technology.
Rob Crooke, Intel corporate vice president and general manager for the Intel Non-Volatile Memory Solutions Group says: "The modern business employee is increasingly mobile and works in multiple environments. The Intel SSD Pro 1500 Series ensures employees have the flexibility, battery life and performance they need, while IT has the assurance data is secure and the device can be managed remotely. Tight integration with Intel vPro technology means we are able to deliver a complete solution for corporate business users."
