Samsung Electronics has announced that it has developed the industry”s first 2.5-inch (SFF-8639) NVM Express (NVMe) PCIe solid state drive (SSD) to open up the high-end enterprise storage market.
The newly developed high-speed 1.6TB NVMe SSD provides a sequential read speed at 3,000MB/s, which allows it to process 500GB of data (equivalent to 100 Full HD movies 5GB in length) in less than 3 minutes. When compared to other products with similar specifications, the new SSD is 14 times faster than a high-end enterprise HDD for server use, and six times faster than Samsung”s former high-end enterprise SSD storage.
The XS1715″s random read performance reaches up to 740,000 IOPS (Input Output Operations Per Second), which is more than 10 times as fast as existing high-end SSD options.
The new NVMe SSD XS1715 comes in 400GB, 800GB and 1.6TB (terabyte) versions. It can also be found on the NVMe Integrators List (IL), which makes it a easy-to-manage and highly reliable solution for data center and server storage customers. System performance can be improved dramatically by upgrading to the NVMe SSD XS1715 from a 2.5-inch HDD or a 2.5-inch SATA SSD.
