Samsung Enters Enterprise SSD Ring

Arthur Cole

Samsung charged into the enterprise SSD market in a big way this week with a new drive aimed squarely at the current crop of 15k magnetic drives that are currently considered the workhorses of the data center.

 

The new SS805 is a 2.5-inch device that offers more than 100 GB of capacity and provides sequential read/write speeds of 230 MBps and 180 MBps, respectively. It also sports an eight-channel controller, and upgraded NAND flash technology and firmware that, among other capabilities, preserves data in the event of a power outage during the writing process.

 

The drive uses the single-level cell (SLC) technology in which performance and reliability are favored over raw capacity, although high data needs can be accommodated through the use of multiple drives. The drive draws only 1.9 watts of power while active and only 0.6 watts while idle, allowing it to replace between four and eight magnetic drives, which can draw anywhere from 8 to 15 watts in active mode.

 

Shipments are expected to begin this quarter.
