Intel launches Pro 1500 series SSD for enterprise
Press release; Jessie Shen, DIGITIMES [Wednesday 11 September 2013]

Intel has announced a new family of solid-state drives for business-class PCs. The new Pro 1500 SSDs are engineered specifically for easy IT deployment and secure manageability, and offer a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) with enhanced performance.

The Intel Stable Image Platform Program ensures that key drivers are in place and makes transitioning to the Pro 1500 series simple and predictable. The ability to remotely manage assets and diagnose issues at the drive level means fewer deskside visits, so PC maintenance and repairs require less time, Intel said.

The Intel SSD Pro 1500 series also protects data from unauthorized access with enterprise-grade security features, including hardware-based 256-bit AES encryption and industry-standard Opal key management protocols. The new SSD series is designed to work with the fourth-generation Intel Core processors with Intel vPro technology. Using the Intel Setup and Configuration Software, IT managers address problems before they arise by remotely managing devices and extracting drive diagnostics to proactively monitor storage health.

Minimizing downtime among a growing mobile workforce using thin and light mobile computers is critical to increase productivity and reduce IT costs. The Intel SSD Pro 1500 Series addresses this need with new small form factors, such as M.2, featuring advanced low-power modes that reduce idle power by more than 90% compared to HDDs, the company said. Smaller form factors and less power enable slimmer device profiles with long battery life, including Ultrabooks, 2-in-1 devices and traditional PCs.
