Seoul, Korea – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. added three TCO-optimized, high-performance SSDs, based on 3-dimensional (3D) Vertical NAND (V-NAND) technology, to its portfolio of advanced enterprise and data center SSDs. Designed for OEMs, the PM1633, PM1725 and PM953 SSDs are available in a range of interfaces and form factors based on Samsung’s proprietary 3-bit MLC V-NAND flash memory.
Here’s the lineup:
The PM1633 is a 2.5” 12 GB/s SAS SSD designed for enterprise storage. It’s designed to meet all requirements of Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) interface based systems, and will be offered in 480 GB, 960 GB, 1.92 terabyte (TB) and 3.84 TB versions. The PM1633 delivers random read and write speeds of up to 160,000 and 18,000 IOPS respectively, and offers sequential read and write speeds of up to 1,100MB/s and 1,000MB/s.
The PM1725 is a half-height, half-length (HHHL) card-type NVMe SSD that offers fast data transmission and a 3.2 TB or 6.4 TB storage capacity. Targeting the next-generation enterprise storage market, the PM1725 provides a random read speed of up to 1,000,000 IOPS (input output operations per second) and writes randomly at up to 120,000 IOPS. It also sequentially reads at up to 5,500 megabytes per second (MB/s) and writes sequentially at up to 1,800MB/s, which enables users to save a 5-GB video in less than three seconds, said Samsung.
The PM953 is an advanced NVMe SSD in M.2 and 2.5” form factors offering up to 1.92 TB storage to meet a variety of next-generation system requirements such as large-scale data centers and mobile workstations as well as ultra-slim notebook PCs and high-end desktops. This is an update to the industry’s first NVMe SSD (SM951) in an M.2 form factor that was announced earlier this year. The M.2 version will be offered with either 480 or 960 GBs, while the 2.5” version will be available in 480 GB, 960 GB and 1.92 TB capacities.
