Optimize endurance 24/7 in write-intensive data center environmentsnnEscalating big data demands are requiring data centers to find new solutions for processing this high volume, velocity and variety of information. It has become critical for data centers to process enormous amounts of data faster with higher endurance and security. Because much of the huge daily volumes of data are unstructured, there is also an increasing need for big data analysis. With its high-level of performance, endurance, security and energy efficiency, the Samsung SM863 SSD is the ideal choice for online transaction processing (OLTP), and email and database servers.nnSustain endurance with advanced V-NAND technologynnThe SM863 is designed with innovative Samsung V-NAND technology to provide all the essentials for data center environments - more capacity, speed, endurance and power efficiency. This revolutionary technology uses a unique architecture that stacks 32 layers of cells vertically, which reduces cell-to-cell interference typically found in planar NAND. As a result, the SM863 experiences less stress for optimal handling of heavy workloads and sustained data center endurance.nnMaintain consistent performance under demanding workloadsnnThe massive amount of data created daily is rapidly increasing the demand for big data analysis, requiring faster random IOPS and lower latency to satisfy Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. The SM863 delivers exceptional sequential read/write speeds of up to 520/485 MB/s and 4 KB random read/write IOPS of up to 97,000/29,000. The SM863 also boasts extremely low latency and a high level of QoS, imperative in data centers that provide fast processing and analysis of massive amounts of data.nnIncrease security with worry-free SED technologynnThe SM863 ensures constant data protection with Samsung's AES-256-bit, hardware-based Self-Encrypting Drive (SED). This encryption engine secures data without performance degradation often experienced with software-based encryption, resulting in better performance, security and manageability.nnEnsure data integrity for improved reliabilitynnSM863 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.nnPower-Loss Protection guards against data corruption or loss in the write cache in the event of power failure using built-in tantalum capacitors. The Dynamic Thermal Guard algorithm monitors the temperature of the SSD by throttling back the performance in order to prevent thermal shutdown.nnLeverage the expertize of a technology leader in innovationnnAs 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.
