Samsung Electronics is launching a new Enterprise SSD based on the SAS-4 specification on Tuesday. The new PM1653 was built with Samsung’s sixth generation V-NAND, and will be available in a range of storage capacities from 800GB to 30.72TB. Based on the 24G SAS (SAS-4) interface, it will offer double the speed of 12G SAS-3, or 22.5 Gb / s, according to Samsung.
The new SSD also supports a random read speed of 800,000 IOPS and a sequential read speed of 4,300 MB / s, the company adds. The PM1653 will also continue to support previous generations of SAS interfaces, such as SAS-3, so customers can operate their servers flexibly, Samsung reassures. It is also designed with dual-ports, so if one port fails, the server can continue to operate.
Samsung announced a collaboration with Broadcom, which provides the Host Bus Controller Cards (HBAs), to help customers upgrade their server storage systems to SAS-4. “The combination of the PM1653 SSD and Broadcom’s next-generation SAS RAID products provides up to five times the performance of RAID 5, which will be essential to meet the high demands of the 24G ecosystem,” says Jas Tremblay. , Managing Director of Broadcom’s Data Center Solutions Group.
Last month, the South Korean tech giant unveiled the development of a 512 GB DDR5 memory module, offering a data transfer rate of 7200 Mb / s.
