Samsung brings V-NAND SSDs for enterprises and data centers

Samsung has enhanced its portfolio of enterprise and data center SSDs with the launch of TCO-optimized, high-performance SSDs, based on 3-dimentional (3D) Vertical NAND (V-NAND) technology.

The newly launched PM1633, PM1725 and PM953 are designed for OEMS and utilize 3-bit MLC (multi-level-cell) V-NAND flash memory to provide performance and reliability with high capacities.

The company said PM1633 is 2.5” 12gigabit-per-second (Gb/s) SAS SSD and designed to meet the requirements of Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) interface based systems.

The PM1633 is offered in 480GB, 960GB, 1.92 terabyte (TB) and 3.84TB versions and delivers random read and write speeds of up to 160,000 and 18,000 IOPS respectively while delivering sequential read and write speeds of up to 1,100MB/s and 1,000MB/s.

This apart, PM1725 offers fast data transmission and a 3.2TB or 6.4TB storage capacity while targeting the next-generation enterprise storage market.


Company officials said PM1725 provides a random read speed of up to 1,000,000 IOPS and writes randomly at up to 120,000 IOPS while sequentially reads at up to 5,500 megabytes per second (MB/s) and writes sequentially at up to 1,800MB/s.

In addition, PM953 is available in both M.2 and 2.5” form factors for next generation system requirements such as large-scale data centers and mobile workstations as well as ultra-slim notebook PCs and high-end desktops.

According of Samsung, M.2 version will be available with 480 or 960 gigabytes while 2.5” version will be available with 480GB, 960GB and 1.92TB capacities.

Last month, Samsung launched PM863 and SM863, new lineup of high performance SATA solid state drives (SSDs) for small and medium sized businesses (SMBs).

Also, Samsung enhanced its 3D Vertical NAND (V-NAND) based retail SSD lineup with the addition of 2-terabyte (TB) 850 PRO and 850 EVO solid state drives (SSDs).
