Samsung Electronics, Co., Ltd., the world leader in advanced memory
technology, said today that it has begun mass producing the industry’s
first high-performance, three-bit-NAND-based SSD for servers and data
centers. The new SSD will allow data centers to better manage workloads
related to social networking, web browsing and email, and enhance
operation efficiency. Installations of the 3-bit MLC (multi-level-cell)
NAND SSDs, initially in large-scale data centers, are expected to begin
later this quarter.

“Following the last year’s introduction of 3-bit NAND-based SSDs for PC
markets, our new 3-bit SSD for data centers will help considerably in
expanding the market base for SSDs,” said Young-Hyun Jun, executive vice
president, memory sales and marketing, Samsung Electronics. “We expect
SSD market growth will gain momentum as this new SSD delivers
significant improvements in data center investment efficiency, leading
to full-fledged commercialization of SSDs in IT systems later this year.”
The new PM853T SSD, available in densities of 240GB, 480GB and 960GB,
offers high levels of random IOPS (inputs/output per second) performance
and quality of service (QoS), both essential for data center and cloud
server applications. In light of these benefits, Samsung expects the
adoption of 3-bit SSDs in data centers to advance rapidly in replacing
the 2-bit SSD market.
In broadening the market base for SSDs, the new PM853T SSD will enable
IT managers to optimize their SSD upgrades at investment levels similar
to those of consumer SSDs. The PM853T delivers a 30 percent increase in
manufacturing efficiency compared to SSDs that use 2-bit NAND flash
Utilizing Samsung’s 10 nanometer (nm)-class* 3-bit NAND flash components
and advanced controller technology, the new drive features a sequential
read speed of 530 megabytes per second (MB/s), while writing
sequentially at 420MB/s. It also will read data randomly at 90,000 IOPS
and handle sustained random writes at 14,000 IOPS.
Since it first produced the 3-bit NAND-based 840 EVO SSD in 2012,
Samsung has taken the lead in providing SSDs for ultra-slim notebooks
and PCs. With the PM853T, it has now secured a strong foothold for
high-efficiency SSDs in large data centers.
Through this introduction of a SATA 6Gb/s 3-bit SSD, Samsung is
reinforcing its collaboration with global data center and server
customers, while continuing to offer the broadest line up of competitive
SSDs (spanning SATA, SAS, and PCIe/NVMe interfaces) to increase its
leadership position in the premium SSD market.
According to a market research report from IHS iSuppli, the global SSD
market is expected to grow approximately 30 percent from U.S. $9.4
billion in 2013 to U.S. $12.4 billion in 2014. The report says it will
also maintain a high growth rate over the next several years, reaching
up to U.S. $20 billion in 2017.
