Samsung Starts Production of High-Performance SSDs for Data Centers & Servers

Samsung has announced that it has started supplying the SM843T SSD, which is an SSD intended to be used in data centers and servers. The SM843T will come in capacities up to 960 GB, and feature IOPS of up to 98,000 sustained random read IOPS. The SSDs run over a SATA3 interface, and they also feature up to 20,000 TBW (Terabyte Written) endurance, depending on the capacity. The SSDs feature read and write speeds of up to 520 MB/s and 400 MB/s, respectively.

"Samsung Green SSD products are widely acknowledged for their superior performance and quality design having contributed to data center system improvements and operational cost savings. In response to customer demand, we are accelerating the growth of the flash storage market with new SSD offerings this year like the SM843T, while reinforcing our competitive edge in next-generation SSD products and solutions," said Young-Hyun Jun, executive VP of memory sales & marketing at Samsung.

According to Samsung, the systems running with these SSDs will experience a multiple 6 performance gain, and save up to 30 percent more energy over traditional hard drives.

The drives will be available in capacities ranging from 120 GB to 960 GB, although there is no word on pricing or availability just yet.
