With the rise of personal, mobile, social and cloud computing, leading data centers are turning to SSDs to meet big data demands. Samsung’s 3rd-generation V-NAND technology provides high capacities up to 3.84 TB in the same 2.5-inch form factor. Boasting exceptional performance, endurance and power efficiency, the new Samsung SATA 2.5-inch PM863a and SM863a SSDs deliver superb IOPS consistency, latency and QoS (quality of service). These high-performance SSDs provide the essentials for 24/7 data center environments.

PM863a – Robust performance and lower TCO

The PM863a is designed for mixed workload data center applications, such as CDNs (content delivery networks), streaming and web servers. With sequential R/W (read/write) speeds up to 520/480 MB/s and 4 KB random R/W speeds up to 97K/24K IOPS, it delivers robust performance1 under various heavy workloads. Generating a better performance-to-power ratio than HDDs, the PM863a reduces data center operating costs, resulting in lower TCO (total cost of ownership)2 . Furthermore, by using the same 2.5-inch SATA interface, and with capacity options up to 3.84 TB, IT managers can scale up their data centers using existing infrastructure

 SM863a – Enhanced performance and endurance

With a higher level of endurance than the PM863a, the SM863a is the ideal choice for write-intensive applications, such as servers for OLTP (online transaction processing), emails and databases. The SM863a delivers sequential R/W speeds up to 510/485 MB/s and 4 KB random R/W IOPS up to 95K/28K

Enhanced data integrity

Both the PM863a and SM863a demonstrate a low probability of data corruption. End-to-end protection keeps data consistent along the entire data transfer path and Power Loss Protection safeguards data in the write cache in the event of a power failure. The Dynamic Thermal Guard algorithm monitors the temperature of the SSD to help prevent thermal shutdown.

Self-encrypted drives

The PM863a and SM863a protect data with AES 256- bit hardware-based encryption. This encryption engine secures data without the performance degradation often experienced with software-based encryption.
