Samsung debuts new data center SSD lines

Besides smartphones Samsung is known for making solid-state drives and this is exactly the role the company has assumed just for a day – the Korean tech giant has unveiled two new solid-state drive lines, designed for data centers and small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). The new SSD lines carry the Samsung PM863 and SM863 product names and deliver excellent power efficiency, faster speeds and improved reliability.

“Companies around the world are racing to digitize their business processes, which is putting increased strain on the data center and extreme pressure on IT managers to find a solution quickly,” said Un-soo Kim, Senior Vice President of Branded Product Marketing, Memory Business, at Samsung Electronics. “The PM863 and SM863 solid state drives are the ideal solution, offering much higher density in the 2.5″ form factor, which saves IT managers at small and medium sized businesses precious real estate in the data center without sacrificing power or performance thanks to our breakthrough V-NAND technology.”

As you can see the new SM863 and PM863 lines are based on leading-edge V-NAND technology, which improves performance. The differences between the two lines lie in the memory used – the SM863 uses 2-bit MLC V-NAND flash memory, which is perfect for e-mail and database servers, while the PM863 uses 3-bit MLC V-NAND memory, which is suitable for streaming on Web servers and content delivery networks. The PM863 line includes models with capacities of 120 GB, 240 GB, 480 GB, 960 GB, 1.9 TB and 3.8 TB and offers read speeds of up to 540 MB/sec as well as 99 000 IOPS for the drives with capacities of 240 GB and up. The SM863 line offers capacities of 120 GB, 240 GB, 480 GB, 960 GB and 1.9 TB and reaches read speeds of up to 520 MB/sec and write speeds of up to 485 MB/sec.

Both lines are available now for enterprises, while small and medium businesses will be able to purchase them in early August. No word on pricing.
