Samsung is now supplying its solid state drive (SSD), the
SM843T, for use in high-performance servers and storage in
next-generation data centers, including Big Data systems.
The SM843T has a SATA interface and it is offering up to 960
gigabytes (GB) of memory storage.
Samsung claims that enterprise servers in data centers with
SM843T SSDs on board have a performance gain of 6 times and
energy savings of 30 percent over the widely-used hard disk
In addition, the SM843T protects the most recent data being
processed from a sudden power interruption, for enhanced
system reliability. Along with this power loss protection
and Samsung's dedication to optimized systems, solutions and
software technology, also referred as "3S Technology," the
SM843T achieves the highest QoS (Quality of Service) level
required by global cloud service providers and financial
The new Samsung SM843T line-up is reaching up to 98,000
(sustained) random read IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per
Second) and 20,000 sequential TBW (Terabytes Written) with
the 960GB model.
According to IHS iSuppli, the global SSD market is expected
to reach approximately USD 10 billion in revenues by the end
of 2013, a 43 percent increase over the previous year, led
by sales of enterprise SSDs which it expects will account
for approximately 47 percent of the market in 2013.
