Samsung unveils its highest performing SAS enterprise SSD

Samsung Electronics announced its launch of the industry’s highest performing 24G SAS (SAS-4) SSD – the PM1653. Based on the latest SAS interface, the new drive can support twice the speed of the previous 12G SAS-3 generation, the company said on Tuesday. 

“The PM1653 is also the industry’s first 24G SAS SSD made with sixth-generation (1xx-layer) V-NAND chips, enabling storage capacities from 800GB to 30.72TB for advanced enterprise server systems.

“In order to build a robust 24G SAS ecosystem across the enterprise market, host bus adapter (HBA) system readiness is also essential. Samsung has been closely working with Broadcom, a leading HBA provider, to ensure a seamless and timely transition to this new SAS milestone.

“The PM1653 has been optimized for high-performance enterprise servers, offering the industry’s highest random read speed – a key metric for server storage performance – of up to 800K IOPS. Its sequential read speed can reach 4,300MB/s, which is the maximum available speed for the 24G SAS interface and twice the speed of the previous-generation PM1643a drive.

“Leveraging its dual-port system, the new SSD will give enterprise server OEMs the flexibility of using one or both ports depending on their system environment. Even if one port was to experience a failure during operation, data can be transferred and accessed through the other port with superior enterprise-grade reliability. The PM1653 is capable of supporting 24G and the legacy 12G SAS-3 platform as well.

“Samsung has begun sampling the PM1653 SSD with select customers, and plans to begin mass production in the second half of this year”.
