The first SSD to challenge hard drives head-on is here. As the world's first SSD to market with ground-breaking quad-level cell (QLC) NAND technology, the Micron 5210 ION delivers fast capacity for less. Designed for the workloads of today and tomorrow - real-time analytics, big data, media streaming, block/object, SQL/NoSQL, and the data lakes that feed AI and machine learning - the Micron 5210 SSD accelerates quick analysis into action. Freed from the confines of hard drive technology, storage architectures can now move to speed and scale, enabling greater infrastructure flexibility and data intelligence.
Endless insight. Deep learning. Speed reading.
Before the age of AI, data center read-to-write ratios were typically 4:1. Now it's more like 5,000:1 and solutions to problems are increasingly found in the patterns data makes. Whether you're querying a 10TB SQL database, streaming content and adjusting to traffic, or analyzing daily transactions to tune your business model, real-time speed reading is key.
Spin Struggles. You Don't Have to.
Get 175X faster random reads, 30X faster random writes, 2X faster sequential throughput and 3X more energy efficiency than the largest 10K hybrid HDDs.
Quickly Access and Analyze Data Stores
Cull oceans of data for answers while writing lots of data. Adjust endurance and write performance with our signature Flex Capacity feature.
Unlock the Potential of Huge Data Sets
Capacities starting in terabytes, not gigabytes. QLC technology allows you to store 33 percent more bits per cell and get more fast capacity for less.
Rely on a Trusted, Proven Architecture
The same controller and core components as our popular Micron 5200 series of SSDs. New QLC NAND. The result? Easy to qualify at comparable value to 10K RPM hard drives.
Experience a Full Enterprise Feature Set
Get everything you expect: AES 256-bit encryption, TCG Enterprise options, end-to-end data path protection, power loss protection, and 5-year warranty.
