"System administrators are realizing that there is a need for an SSD that delivers more enterprise-features than a client drive at a more affordable price than most enterprise drives," said Greg Wong, founder and principal analyst at Forward Insights. "Products such as Micron's M500DC SSD offer data centers the optimal balance of enterprise class features, performance and price for demanding 24/7 enterprise workloads."

Micron's new MD500DC is built on a 20nm MLC NAND Flash design and utilizes the company's fifth-generation custom firmware. The M500DC ensures high reliability in this advanced media by integrating its Extended Performance and Enhanced Reliability Technology (XPERT) feature suite. The M500DC is available in 120, 240, 480 and 800GB capacities and 1.8-inch, 5-millimeter (mm) and 2.5-inch, 7mm SATA form factors. The drive is currently in production and is sold direct to OEMs and through Micron's distribution channels.
