Samsung, Sun Microsystems to Develop New Flash Memory for SSD For Server Applications

Samsung Electronics has collaborated with Sun Microsystems to develop a single-level-cell NAND flash memory device for use in solid state drives that offers much higher endurance levels than any other flash memory device on the market today.

Offering a five-fold increase in data write-and-erase cycles over standard SLC flash memory, Samsung's new server-grade SLC NAND memory is designed to be used in SSDs to greatly extend the life cycle of any high-transaction data processing server. It is expected to deliver the highest endurance ever offered in 24/7 mission-critical computing.

The ultra-endurance server-grade memory has been developed in close cooperation with Sun over the past several months.

Probable applications for the new ultra-endurance SLC flash include its use in video streaming, high-transaction data processing, search engine operations and other high-speed server functions.

Samsung said that its server-grade SLC memory will provide a 100X increase over conventional hard drives, in the number of data transfers (input/output per second or I/OPS) per watt, registering a substantial power savings in a market sector where rising cooling bills are being watched with a great deal of concern.

"We have been working with Sun to develop this new 8Gb server-grade SLC flash memory, which will give IT managers the best in high-density, high-endurance memory design with markedly less energy consumption than we see today," said Jim Elliott, vice president, memory marketing, Samsung Semiconductor, Inc. "'Endurance up, power down' is going to be the mantra of IT innovators at enterprises everywhere, and server grade SLC flash is ideally situated to deliver on that equation," Elliott added.

"Sun sees incredible upside to using server grade SLC NAND flash to accelerate customers' applications, and we plan to incorporate this technology into our line of servers and storage," said Michael Cornwell, lead technologist for flash memory, Sun Microsystems. "Flash SSDs of this quality and performance when included in our systems and Open Storage products with Solaris ZFS will revolutionize the hardware marketplace. We are excited to be working closely with Samsung to lead this game-changing technology revolution."

According to IDC, global demand for enterprise SSDs is expected to rise to 2.24 million units in 2012.
