Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a world-leading producer of advanced memory devices, is announcing three additions to its industry-leading portfolio of enterprise and data center SSDs, based on their 3D V-NAND technology. Designed for OEMs, the PM1633, PM1725 and PM953 are TCO-optimized, high-performance SSDs that utilize Samsung’s 3-bit MLC V-NAND flash memory that also provides strong reliability and high capacities.
According to Jim Elliott, corporate vice president for Samsung Semiconductor, Inc., “We are providing high-end capabilities and capacities for all of our latest SSDs, something we believe will elicit a high degree of interest from OEMs and computer enthusiasts throughout the world. We understand the performance needs of our customers in a rapidly expanding SSD universe and are determined to meet those needs.”
PM1633 – 12Gb/s SAS SSD for enterprise storage – The PM1633, Samsung’s newest SAS SSD, meets all requirements of SAS interface based systems. These 2.5”, 12Gb/s SAS SSD will be offered in capacities of 480GB, 960GB, 1.92TB and 3.84TB. The PM1633 offers random 4K read speeds of up to 160,000 IOPS, and random 4K write speeds of up to 18,000 IOPS. It provides sequential read speeds of up to 1100MB/s, and sequential write speeds of up to 1000MB/s.
PM1725 – 6.4TB HHHL-card NVMe PCIe SSD that can attain random 4K reads of up to 1,000,000 IOPS – Geared to the next-generation enterprise storage market, the PM1725 is a half-height, half-length (HHHL) add-in card NVMe SSD, that will be offered in capacities of either 3.2TB or 6.4TB. The PM1723 attains random 4K read speeds of up to 1,000,000 IOPS, and random 4K write speeds of up to 120,000 IOPS. Sequential read speeds are stated as up to 5500MB/s, with sequential write speeds of up to 1800MB/s. The 6.4TB version of the PM1725 features outstanding reliability, to the tune of five drive writes per day (DWPD) for five years, translating to writing a total of 32TBs per day over that period. This equates to writing 6400 files of 5GB of data or video every day. This level of durability is ideal for enterprise storage systems that need to move large amounts of data, and do it in an ultrafast fashion.
PM953 – An advanced NMVe SSD in either 2.5” or M.2 form factors – Samsung’s PM953 is an update of the industry’s first NVMe SSD (the SM951) in an M.2 form factor that was announced earlier this year. The new PM953 utilizes the NVMe interface, and is offered in either 2.5” or M.2 form factors to meet various next-generation system requirements, including large-scale data centers and mobile workstations, as well as high-end desktops and ultra-slim notebook PCs. The M.2 version is offered in capacities of either 480GB or 960GB, and the 2.5” version will be offered in capacities of 480GB, 960GB and 1.92TB.
