IOPS per watt is also said to be a significant 77% improvement, while the 30TB SSD doubles the capacity of the previous generation NVMe. Micron SSD effectively and efficiently. This then leads to a standard, two-rack-unit, 24-drive server fully equipped with Micron 9400 SSDs, thus providing a total storage space of f 737TB.
This very development will naturally help to see the potential for a significant reduction in the footprint required in data centers as opposed to other like-for-like setups thus helping to reduce the environmental impact of data storage. Micron, however, promises that companies can lower their maintenance costs as a result.
