Samsung Outs 8TB PM883 SATA SSD for Datacentre Applications
Samsung announces the release of its highest density SATA solid-state drive for datacentre applications – the Samsung PM833 8TB SSD. The new SSD offering packs LPDDR4 DRAM modules and features a 6-gigabit-per-second 2.5-inch SATA interface. The high-performance PM833 aims to speed up the transition of existing datacentres to SATA SSDs and bring the benefits of advanced V-NAND technology and higher densities to datacentres.
Makings of the PM883 SSD
The Samsung PM883 features 16Gb LPDDR4 DRAM based on the advanced 10nm-class process technology to create higher density drives. It also features SATA 3.3-compliant Power Disable (PWDIS) that enables power management in individual SSD units that boost the power efficiency of the datacentre it is installed, a new feature on Samsung datacentre storage solutions.
The PM883’s power-saving features enable the SSD to draw only 2.8 watts when reading and 3.7 watts when writing. The PM883 delivers speeds of up to 550 MB/s sequential read and up to 520 MB/s sequential write with random reads deliver up to 98,000 IOPS and random writes up to 28,000 IOPS. The PM883 has a writing endurance of 5466TB for the 3840GB drive and 10,932TB for the 7680GB drive.
