5100 SATA SSD Media Kit

Micron Delivers a Modern, More Agile Storage Solution

Ever-increasing quantities of data are overwhelming traditional data center solutions. With its industry-leading capacity (up to 8TB), unsurpassed steady state random writes (up to 74,000 IOPS1) and new tunable FlexPro™ architecture, Micron’s 5100 series of SATA SSDs are perfectly tailored to meet the needs of this data deluge. And by leveraging Micron 3D eTLC NAND technology, the 5100 SSD family offers a unique cost-optimized platform that's a better value compared to existing HDD solutions — disrupting the economics of storage as we know it today.

Our 5100 SSDs deliver consistent high performance, market-leading security and endurance, flexibility and simplification through a common platform — making it easier for IT managers to transform their data centers into high-performing, extremely efficient environments.

Micron offers three low-latency 5100 models (ECO, PRO and MAX) that are uniquely designed to satisfy varying degrees of customer workloads, from read-intensive video streaming, to latency-sensitive transactional databases to write-intensive logging applications.

5100 Key Benefits

  • High Capacity: Up to 8TB of storage in a 2.5-inch form factor and 2TB in a tiny M.2 takes data center performance to the next level.
  • Consistent High Performance: Consistent IOPS and up to 74K random write performance meet modern data center demands.
  • Comprehensive Security: Built-in AES-256-bit encryption and TCG Enterprise protection with FIPS-validation (available on the 5100 MAX) help to alleviate enterprise security concerns.
  • Ultimate Flexibility: Micron's FlexPro firmware architecture lets IT administrators actively tune capacity to optimize drive performance and endurance.
  • Outstanding Reliability: 99.999%2 quality of service (QoS) that is unmatched compared to spinning media helps reduce downtime and latency.
