SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS UNVEILS COMPREHENSIVE DATA CENTER SSD LINEUP FOR ENTERPRISE AND BUSINESS BIG DATA APPLICATIONS

New lineup designed to address supercomputing trends of big data, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things

Samsung Electronics America, Inc. today unveiled the Samsung Data Center solid-state drive (SSD) lineup to address the growing demand for high-performance computing storage in the big data era. Samsung’s new family of Data Center SSD solutions, which consists of the 860 DCT, 883 DCT, 983 DCT and the 983 ZET, are engineered to meet the evolving needs of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), including faster, sustained performance, higher capacities and enterprise-class reliability and security.

“Samsung’s Data Center SSD portfolio provides whitebox server builder, solution providers, and SMBs with a future-proof lineup to fit their unique business needs in the incredibly diverse enterprise SSD market,” said Richard Leonarz, director of memory product marketing at Samsung Electronics. “Samsung leveraged years of memory product engineering expertise to deliver a simple, yet optimized SSD lineup that addresses today’s supercomputing trends.”

Samsung’s new SSD portfolio is expected to raise the bar for data center efficiency compared to legacy storage systems, requiring less power and cooling for a lower total cost of ownership (TCO). The lineup delivers better Quality of Service (QoS) through reduced latency and data delays and offers enhanced reliability and endurance for 24/7 operation backed by a 5-year limited.

The comprehensive SSD lineup includes the following solutions to meet the widest range of data center storage demands:

The 860 DCT is designed for servers requiring SSD-levels of sustained performance and is suitable for various applications, including content delivery networks. It allows for a lower TCO compared to hard disk drives (HDDs) and offers high capacities up to 3.84TB. The 883 DCT is designed for servers used to safeguard critical data and supports power loss protection and end-to-end data protection. It offers a high QoS under the SATA interface and will be available in a broad range of capacities from 240GB to 3.84TB. The 983 DCT is a high-performance solution for servers using an NVMe™ interface, which allows for blazing-fast speeds and high responsiveness. It comes in two form factors – 2.5-inch and M.2 – and delivers sequential read/write speeds of up to 3,000/1,900 MB/s (2.5-inch) and 3,000/1,400 MB/s (M.2). The 983 DCT is ideal for real-time big data analytics applications. The 983 ZET is a powerful cache memory solution that offers a new level of performance with ultra-low latency, high level QoS, breakthrough speeds and high reliability. It is the perfect storage solution for read cache applications, such as hybrid caching servers and NoSQL databases.

All of Samsung’s new Data Center SSDs can be managed with the advanced Samsung SSD Toolkit, which allows for efficient and simple maintenance with functions such as firmware updates, data erasure, over-provisioning setup and disk status indicators. The new lineup will be available in select regions beginning. The 860 DCT, 883 DCT and 983 DCT are available now and the 983 ZET will be available October 8th.
