Semiconductor major Intel Corporation has unveiled a new Solid-State Drive (SSD). Bearing the model number DC P4500, the SSD has a 12-inch ruler-shaped (hence the name) housing and comes with an insane 32TB of storage. Also Read - Intel announces 11th Gen Tiger Lake processors for Chromebooks

The ruler form factor was introduced by the company last year for rack mounted servers. The DC P4500 is the first SSD based on the ruler form factor, and uses one-twentieth of the space that regular hard disks of comparable capacity would take up. Consuming merely one-tenth of the power required by hard disks of the same capacity, the DC P4500 is highly power efficient as well.

As per Intel, 32 such SSDs can be fitted side by side, allowing 1PB (1024TB) of data to be stored in a single server slot. The SSD s thin and elongated design means that it also requires lesser airflow for cooling purposes.

The company said, “This is one of the reasons some of the world’s biggest data companies — IBM, Microsoft and Tencent — are using the new ‘ruler’ SSD to support their cloud and data center operations.”

Last month, Intel unveiled a new Xeon chipset – the E-2100 – for entry-level workstations. The new chip is crafted to meet the demands of creative professionals. Compared to its predecessor, Xeon E-2100 offers higher max turbo frequency, faster DRAM speeds, enhanced input/output, and increased reliability.

The release of the Intel Xeon E processor is intended to deliver the essential performance and visuals for entry workstations as well as optimizing innovative form factors, designs and diverse requirements of our customers, said Jennifer Huffstetler, Vice President and General Manager, Data Center Product Management, Intel Corporation.
