All in all, the Intel DC P4510 is an outstanding enterprise drive.
- Outstanding Sequential Read and Write performance.
- Outstanding Random Read performance and excellent Random Write performance.
- Outstanding Quality of Service.
- Huge capacity, which enables higher levels of server density.
- Good power efficiency
- Excellent power loss protection features.
It doesn’t offer a high enough level of endurance as maybe required by write intensive applications, but for applications that are primarily read intensive it is difficult to fault. As demand for storage is dominated by read intensive applications it is easy to imagine that the Intel DC P4510 is going to be a great success.
I am delighted to award the Intel DC P4510 our highest rating of ‘Outstanding’, and name it as an ‘Editor’s Choice’.
