Samsung has introduced a new SSD line, specially designed to bring the optimum solution for data centres. The 845DC Evo Solid State Drive is said to deliver sustained performance with a low latency and high performance ratings, making the SSD an ideal candidate for read-intensive data centre applications such as the ones found on web, content and streaming servers.
The 845DC Evo SSD is said to be ideal for small and medium business system integration and data centre use, while OEM server manufacturers are offered a custom solution thanks to Samsung’s 10nm class 3-bit NAND flash memory, having the firmware and controller based on the Samsung PM853T SSD.
In terms of specifications, the 845DC Evo SSD features high reliability and endurance, with read speeds of up to 530 MB/s and 87,000 IOPS for random reads and a power consumption of around 4W, which is equivalent to a quarter of what data centre HDDs require to operate.
The company aims its 845DC Evo SSD towards environments involving a lot of data reading activity, therefore the read speeds are considerably higher than write speeds. The company offers the 834DC Evo SSD in three storage space variations, having it available in 240 GB, 480 GB and 960 GB, all with a 5 year warranty and a 2,000,000-hour MTBF reliability.
Furthermore, Samsung offers higher endurance ratings for its latest SSD, having claimed 150 TBW for the 240 GB version, 300 TBW for the 480 GB version and 600 TBW for the 960 GB version.
