Micron has announced its latest set of 9400 NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSDs to offer what the company claims is an industry-leading 30.72TB of storage.

Available now, Micron says its 9400 solid-state drive is “designed to handle the most demanding data center workloads” and lends itself well to artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other high-performance computing applications.

“With its industry-leading 30TB capacity and impressive performance with over 1 million IOPS in mixed workloads, the Micron 9400 SSD packs larger data sets onto each server and accelerates machine learning training, which equips users to get more out of their GPUs,” said VP of Micron, Álvaro Toledo.

IOPS per watt is reported to have seen a significant 77% improvement, while the 30TB SSD effectively doubles the capacity of Micron’s previous generation NVMe SSDs. This leads to a standard 24-drive, 2-rack server fully equipped with Micron 9400 SSDs providing a total storage space of 737TB.

Naturally, this development will see the potential for a significant decrease in the footprint required in data centers compared to other similar setups, helping to reduce the environmental impact of storing our data. Micron also promises that companies can reduce their maintenance costs as a result.

The Micron 9400 NVMe SSD is available today in 6.4TB, 7.68TB, 12.8TB, 15.36TB, 25.6TB, and 30.72TB sizes, and is ready for U.3 sockets and backward compatibility U.2.
