- Read-intensive MLC flash memory: The 342-6079 uses MLC flash memory, which is less durable than SLC but is designed for read-intensive workloads. This makes it a good choice for applications like content delivery networks, web servers, and other read-heavy workloads.
- High capacity: With a capacity of 480GB, the 342-6079 can hold a large amount of data, making it suitable for data centers and other enterprise environments.
- SATA interface: The 342-6079 uses the SATA interface, which is a widely adopted standard in enterprise environments. This makes it easy to integrate into existing storage systems.
- 2.5-inch form factor: The 2.5-inch form factor is a standard size for enterprise-grade SSDs, and makes the 342-6079 compatible with a wide range of server and storage systems.
- Data protection and reliability features: The 342-6079 includes features like data path protection, power loss protection, and advanced error correction algorithms to help ensure data integrity and reliability.
- Endurance and longevity: The 342-6079 is designed to deliver high endurance and longevity, with a mean time between failures (MTBF) of 2 million hours and a drive writes per day (DWPD) rating of 1. This makes it a reliable choice for demanding enterprise workloads.
Applications and Use Cases
The Dell 342-6079 is a 480GB solid-state drive designed for read-intensive workloads, using MLC NAND flash memory and a 2.5-inch form factor with a SATA 3Gbps interface. Here are some common applications and use cases for this type of SSD:
- Virtualization: Read-intensive SSDs like the 342-6079 can be used to improve virtual machine performance, particularly for workloads that involve a high volume of read operations, such as booting up virtual machines or loading applications.
- Content delivery: Read-intensive SSDs can be used in content delivery networks (CDNs) to accelerate the delivery of frequently accessed content, such as images or videos, by caching the content on the drive.
- Web servers: Web servers can benefit from the high read performance of read-intensive SSDs, particularly when serving static content or caching frequently accessed data.
- Analytics and data warehousing: Read-intensive SSDs can be used to improve performance in analytics and data warehousing applications, where large volumes of data are read from disk.
- Backup and archiving: Read-intensive SSDs can also be used for backup and archiving purposes, where data is read from disk more frequently than it is written.
Maintenance and Troubleshooting
The Dell 342-6079 480GB SATA Read Intensive MLC 3GBPS 2.5Inch Form Factor SSD is a reliable storage solution, but like any electronic device, it may require maintenance and troubleshooting over time. Here are some tips for maintaining and troubleshooting this SSD:
- Keep the drive clean and free from dust and debris to prevent overheating.
- Avoid exposing the drive to extreme temperatures or humidity.
- Regularly backup the data stored on the drive to prevent data loss in case of hardware failure.
- Keep the drive firmware up-to-date to ensure optimal performance and stability.
- If the drive is not recognized by the system, make sure it is properly installed and connected to the system.
- Check the system's BIOS settings to ensure that the drive is detected and configured correctly.
- Use a disk utility tool to check the health and status of the drive, and perform any necessary repairs or optimizations.
- If the drive is still not functioning properly, contact Dell support for further assistance.

The SATA 3Gbps is a sample of the second revision of SATA technology and can also be referred to as SATA II. The SATA II has data transfer rates of 3Gbs per second and can reach a capacity of 300MB/s for HDDs and up to 550 MB/s for SSDs.
It took a lot of effort to improve the performance and speeds of solid-state drives (SSD). The upgrade to the SATA-3Gbps SSD can help users get a tune-up and extract greater performance out of their workstations, PCs, and servers. Without a doubt, the SATA-3Gbps SSDs will easily exceed the interface's throughput ceiling compared to the mechanical hard drives of a similar interface. Another major advantage of SSDs is the innate ability to handle random I/O requests. If you've not used a SATA II SSD, you are losing increased performance and have not experienced responsiveness: apps start faster, faster system boots, and faster file transfers.
SATA 3Gbps has quite some impressive speeds and will reduce boot times and application load times thereby increasing productivity. The SSDs can eliminate hard drive failures and hard drive crashes making them ideal for system builders and enterprise environments. The SSD differs in that it has no moving components making use of microchips but will have the standard SATA interface. SSDs are built for reliability and durability as well as performance gains.
Browse through the products under this category for all your SATA 3gbps SSD needs. We have a variety of storage capacity options that include 400GB, 480GB, 600GB, 800GB, 960GB SSDs to meet your storage needs. Some of the notable features of the SATA 3Gbps and the SSDs products listed above are:
- Data throughput of up to 3.0 Gb/s
- Multi-level cell NAND flash technology for better storage speeds.
- Read speed of up to 230 MB/s and write speeds of up to 180 MB/s. The fast read/write speeds improve data transfer and increase overall system responsiveness.
- Support for native command queuing (NCQ) to increase efficiency in the execution order of reading and writing commands.
- Available in the 2.5-inch form factor for deployment in space-constrained environments in light and thin form factor devices and system configurations.
- Backward and forward compatibility with devices that support the SATA standard. The SATA 3Gbps SSDs are compatible with the different revisions of SATA – backward compatible with SATA 1.5 Gb/s and forward compatible with SATA-III/SATA 6Gbps.
- Non-volatile flash memory to allow outstanding data retention.
- Advanced garbage collection algorithms serve to maintain the high performance of the SSD even after long durations in operation.
- Error correction code functionality for reliable data transfer.
- Wear leveling support and shock resistance.
- Low power consumption which is particularly helpful in preserving battery runtime in PCs and increases efficiency in notebooks users.
- Support for hardware purge for faster deleting of data at the push of a button and write-protect functionality to prevent data modification.
The SATA 3Gbps SSD offers cool and silent operation mainly due to the lack of moving parts which also means lower power use. Lower energy consumption arises from the fact that the SSD will use lesser power and that its cooling needs are much lower.
All the SATA II SSDs have built-in reliability that includes the power shield to prevent damage caused by power failure. For a longer lifespan, the SMART command aids in the detection of possible drive failure before it even occurs.
