A leading-edge SSD in performance, endurance and energy efficiency
The huge growth in data traffic is placing crucial demands on data centres running 24/7 to reach faster speeds while operating cost-efficiently. The Samsung SSD PM863 is the optimal solution. Boasting a wide-capacity up to 3.84 TB in a 6.35 cm (2.5) form factor, PM863 saves valuable space without extra power consumption or compromise in performance thanks to groundbreaking Samsung V-NAND technology. PM863 delivers high random Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPS), lower latency, higher reliability and reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) under mixed workloads, ideal for Content Delivery Networks (CDNs), streaming or Web servers.
Achieve high endurance with V-NAND technology
PM863 features cutting-edge Samsung V-NAND technology that stacks the vertical layers in three dimensions, solving the cell-to-cell interference that causes data corruption in planar NAND. This technology leads to increased capacity on the same footprint, as well as increased performance, endurance and power efficiency - all essentials for data centres.
Optimised performance for mixed workload applications
PM863 shows outstanding random read/write speeds up to 99K/10K IOPS respectively with consistent and constant performance, which is essential for data centres. Thanks to optimised hardware and software for mixed workload applications, under the internal test, PM863 maintains IOPS consistency level at no less than 90% under any write ratio conditions, while the competing products' comparable values show steep fluctuations between 73% to 99% in their performance.
Lower TCO without sacrificing performance
On average, PM863 consumes less power and generates less heat in data center environments than HDDs. Typical HDDs generate and emit much heat due to the drives' moving mechanical parts, resulting in excessive energy consumption to keep them cool.
Ensure data integrity for improved reliability
PM863 demonstrates low probability of data corruption and maintains high level of data integrity. End-to-End Protection enables output data to remain consistent with input data along the entire data transfer path by detecting and remedying signal discrepancies in real time using the Error Correcting Code (ECC) engine.
Leverage the expertize of a technology leader in innovation
As a global leader in the SSD market, Samsung is a single-solution provider that actually designs and integrates crucial components of the SSD in-house, the DRAM, NAND flash, controller and firmware. Because Samsung has intimate knowledge of every component and part, and is a leader in V-NAND technology innovation, it can fine-tune each element at every stage of development and create perfect synergy.
