Can you spot the difference between the two Solid State Drives (SSDs) ? Your server can’t.
These two Intel DC S4600 SSDs have identical specifications; the only differences are cosmetic.

As shown in the table below, the cost savings can range from 25 percent on the Intel Xeon 4110 to as much as 60 percent for the Intel S4600. The Intel DC S4600 is not exclusive; it is a standard component used for enterprise server systems.
