    To meet the growing storage needs of the data center and cloud computing, Intel today announced the latest addition to its data center family of solid-state drives (SSD) at the Cloud Computing Expo in New York, the IntelĀ® SSD DC S3500 Series. The DC S3500 Series is ideal for read-intensive applications such as Web hosting, cloud computing and data center virtualization. Data centers can save significant costs by replacing traditional hard disk drives (HDD) and moving toward an all-SSD storage model. Additional information about the Intel SSD DC S3500 Series is available here. Tune in Wednesday, June 12, 9 AM ET, for a livecast of Intel corporate VP Rob Crooke’s Cloud Computing Expo keynote address about the state of storage in cloud computing and data centers.

    If you're wondering about prices, they'll be between $1.22 to $1.44 per GB for capacities of 80GB ($115) to 800GB ($1000); the 480GB version should be around $640. That's less than half the price of the DC S3700 series, as far as I can tell from current amazon prices.

    The 3700 series has a much higher write endurance rating.
