Comprehensive New Lineup Designed to Address Super Computing Trends
of Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things

Samsung
Electronics America, Inc.
today
unveiled the Samsung Data Center solid-state drive (SSD) lineup to
address current and future trends in high performance computing storage
in the big data era for small and medium businesses (SMBs). Samsung's
new family of Data Center SSD solutions, which consists of the 860 DCT,
883 DCT, 983 DCT and the 983 ZET, are engineered to meet the evolving
needs of SMBs, including faster, sustained performance, higher
capacities and enterprise-class reliability and security.

Samsung's Data Center SSD portfolio will raise the bar for efficiency
compared to legacy storage systems, requiring fewer servers and reduced
power and cooling for a lower total cost of ownership (TCO). The new
lineup delivers better Quality of Service (QoS) for SMBs by reducing
latency and lowering data delays. The entire line provides enhanced
reliability and endurance for 24/7 operation backed by a 5-year limited
warranty and impressive Drive Writes Per Day (DWPD) ratings.

"Samsung's Data Center SSD portfolio provides SMBs with a future-proof
lineup to fit their unique business needs in the incredibly diverse
market," said Richard Leonarz, director of product marketing for Samsung
Electronics. "Samsung leveraged years of memory product engineering
expertise to deliver a simple, yet optimized SSD lineup that addresses
today's super computer trends."

The comprehensive SSD lineup includes the following solutions to meet
the widest range of SMB data storage needs:

  • The 860 DCT is designed for servers requiring SSD-levels
    of sustained performance and is suitable for read-intensive workloads.
    It allows for a lower TCO compared to hard disk drives (HDDs) and
    offers high capacities up to 3.84 TB. The 860 DCT is the perfect
    solution for content delivery network systems and comes with a 0.20
    DWPD rating.
  • The 883 DCT is designed for servers used to safeguard critical
    data, including power loss protection and end-to-end data protection.
    It offers a high QoS under the SATA interface and will be available in
    a number of capacities ranging from 240GB up to 3.84TB at a 0.8 DWPD
    rating.
  • The 983 DCT is a high-performance solution for servers using an
    NVMe™ interface, which allows for blazing-fast speeds and high
    responsiveness. It comes in two form factors – U.2 and M.2 – and will
    deliver jaw-dropping sequential read/write speeds of up to 3,000/1,900
    MB/s (U.2) and 3,000/1,400 MB/s (M.2). The 983 DCT is ideal for
    real-time big data analytics applications and comes with a 0.8 DWPD
    rating.
  • The 983 ZET is a powerful cache memory solution that offers a
    new level of performance with ultra-low latency, high level of QoS,
    breakthrough speeds and high reliability. It is the perfect storage
    solution for NoSQL DB such as application workload case, and it comes
    with a 10 DWPD rating.

All of Samsung's new Data Center SSDs integrate with the advanced
Samsung SSD Toolkit, which allows for efficient and simple maintenance,
such as firmware updates, data erasure, over-provisioning setup and disk
status. The 860 DCT, 883 DCT and 983 DCT are available now and the 983
ZET will be available September 24th. For more information, please visit www.samsung.com/us/business.
