The SM1625 SSD, Samsung’s first dual-ported SAS SSD with densities of up to 800 gigabytes (GBs), has been certified for VMware Virtual SAN for use in data centers and other enterprise applications. VMware Virtual SAN is a new offering that allows customers to pool server disks and flash resources to create a resilient, high-performance and dynamic shared storage solution for virtual machines.
“VMware Virtual SAN™ provides customers a simpler and more flexible tier of storage for their virtual machines,” said
“We are very enthusiastic about this SM1625 certification as the basis for partnering with VMware to offer a SAS storage solution for the enterprise,” said
The newly certified SAS SM1625 enterprise storage, which is produced using 20 nanometer (nm) class* technology, can read data sequentially at 950 MB/s (megabytes per second). In addition, the SM1625 has a random read speed of 120,000 IOPS (inputs/outputs per second). Further, it can handle up to 10 drive writes per day, an endurance rate that covers a typical warranty period for its full five years.
By utilizing 20nm-class technology, Samsung’s SM1625 SSD provides up to 200 times greater power efficiency than conventional (15k rpm) hard drives, and also comes with power loss protection to ensure data is safe in a power outage.
The SM1625 is the starting lineup of how Samsung has been driving development of the industry’s most advanced SAS SSD solutions to enable significant improvements in server system performance, while meeting a rapidly growing need for energy efficiency and higher densities.
The SM1625 is available in densities of 100GB, 200GB, 400GB and 800GB.
Samsung will continue to partner with VMware to offer other high performance, power saving solid state drives with rich-storage optimized features, such as V-NAND and NVMe SSDs for use with VMware infrastructure.
Samsung will work closely with not only our OEM customers but also global software companies in developing the highest performing and most environmentally-friendly IT systems for data center applications and enterprise storage, as we continue to affirm our leadership in the SSD market.
