Micron is sampling industrial grade 1.5 TB microSD card
Micron is sampling 1.5 TB microSD card. The new card i400 is designed for industrial-grade video security made using 176-layer 3D NAND.
World’s first 1.5TB microSD can store up to four months or 120 days of video security media locally, enabling users to optimize what data is stored in the cloud. The high capacity eliminates the need to continuously upload data to the cloud for primary storage, a process that guzzles network bandwidth and operational expenses.3 Small businesses looking to reduce expensive bandwidth or remote sites — such as cargo ships or oil rigs with limited connectivity — can instead periodically upload data to the cloud for backup while relying day to day on i400 storage at the edge. Bringing primary storage to the edge enables real-time AI analytics and faster decision-making within smart cameras. This speed is especially crucial for critical law enforcement, public health or safety decisions.
Unlike most cards on the market that are consumer-grade and have limited write capability, the i400 is designed for the video security environment with features such as:
Five years of high-quality continuous 24x7 recording
Ability to concurrently handle 4K video recording and up to eight AI events per second, such as object detection and classification like license plate or facial recognition
Two million hours for mean time to failure
Micron is sampling the i400 to customers, including Verkada, a cloud-managed enterprise building-security provider. Verkada protects over 12,000 organizations, including 43 of the Fortune 500, with its intelligent cameras and recently donated cameras to Asian American-owned businesses seeking enhanced safety to address the spike in anti-Asian hate crimes, which have risen by 339% in the U.S. last year.
“Micron’s industrial-grade storage is key to helping us protect our customers and communities, from schools to large enterprises, by meeting the most demanding of video retention and security requirements,” said Raj Misra, vice president of hardware engineering at Verkada. “The latest i400 solution will provide further peace of mind by enabling greater video storage at the edge and faster in-camera AI analytics — important in crises where response time is paramount.”
