Financial Services Solutions

Balanced storage solutions that keep you compliant, secure and customer-focused

The storage challenges facing today’s financial services organizations truly present an unprecedented balancing act. Pressures come from all sectors, including compliance and security regulations, a need to execute fiscal transactions in near real-time, all while protecting customer information and delivering the always-on service the digital client expects. It’s a tightrope where transactional speed counts and a lack of storage nimbleness can literally stop the show.

Financial Solutions

5100 SATA SSD

The Micron® 5100 data center SATA SSD builds on our history as the first vendor to ship TCG-Enterprise encryption capability in a SATA SSD. The 5100 now adds industry-leading capacity of up to 8TB, and steady state random writes up to 74,000 IOPS. This outstanding performance is unaffected by ultra-secure AES 256-bit encryption, with advanced data path protection that protects user data and prevents data integrity errors. The 5100 also features enterprise-class protection against unexpected power loss. The 5100 Series SSDs employ Micron’s 384GB 32-layer 3D NAND FLASH, a design that enables higher capacity and better reliability in a more cost-effective package.

The 5100 Series SSDs are matched to the workloads, speed, security and resiliency that financial services data centers require.

SAS SSD Family

The Micron® S600 Series SAS SSD family delivers the outstanding performance expected in enterprise data storage, along with security features that modern financial services organizations desire. SAS SSDs have become the de facto standard, replacing aging HDDs, delivering added reliability and capacity, along with performance of up to 200,000 IOPS in random read/write operations. This elite performance is ideal for real-world mixed use and virtualized storage environments. In addition to this world-class performance, the S600 Series also delivers the security and compliance capabilities demanded by IT managers. The S600 Series SSDs deliver the same hardware-based, 256-bit encryption as Micron's other SAS and SATA SSDs. Additionally, the S650DC offers optional FIPS 140-2 validation, with security features and encryption which is validated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), providing documented security features to provide added assurance during the compliance process.

Micron<sup>®</sup> 9200 SSD (NVMe™ interface)

The Micron® 9200 SSD with NVMe™ is next generation, radically fast non-volatile in-memory storage, able to respond directly to financial service organization’s big data application analytic workloads, and the requirement for speed in securely completing both internal and customer-facing transactions. The 9200 is revolutionizing the storage world, avoiding network latency and transforming massive application processing and storage tasks by bringing data closer to the point of execution. They outperform SAS, SATA and HDD implementations, are engineered for endurance and provide exceptional value in dollar per IOPS.

Benefits

With Micron solutions, financial services organizations can address all their storage needs, and satisfy every stakeholder.

  • Compliance concerns rise ever higher on the list of mandates for both management and IT, and Micron storage enables the real-time monitoring and audit readiness with the speed, density and data integrity only this caliber solution can provide.

  • Security in data storage impacts financial services organizations even more critically than other industries, demanding protection for internal and external fiscal transactions. Micron delivers 256-bit hardware encryption to protect data-at-rest.

  • Speed in processing is key, given that the high latency levels of legacy storage technology can literally translate to millions in lost dollars in trading, slowed data analytics and sluggish risk evaluation. Micron solutions maximize transaction speeds and minimize processing delays.
  • Availability, or the cost of downtime, also translate into hard expenses financial services organizations are forced to absorb. Micron storage solutions have no moving parts and have a predictable lifespan, allowing for non-disruptive replacement planning and budgeting.

  • Ease of Management of Micron storage enables the shift from a centralized IT-oriented view of storage to one that encompasses not only the need for control, but puts business unit and application demands on equal footing.

  • Upgrade Paths for storage solutions in financial services are critical, as applications typically are long-lived and disruptions for upgrades come with huge downside potential. Micron offerings come with options that enable simple swap outs, done incrementally as upgrades are needed.

This white paper provides an overview of encryption techniques and advantages of hardware-based encryption in Micron's self-encrypted SSDs.

Blog

Shortly after Micron’s SSD organization was created, we began engineering data security features like self-encryption into our products. Micron’s commitment to security continues with the recently released 1100 SSD furthering our well-established path of making encryption widely available for stored data in laptop and desktop computing.
