Enterprise SSDs enable low power consumption, high IOPS rates


San Jose, Calif.—Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. is now mass producing 25 and 50 gigabyte (GB) solid state drives (SSDs) for performance-optimized server applications such as video on demand, web serving and on-line transaction processing.

Designed specifically for the enterprise market, the Samsung single-level-cell (SLC) SSDs have about twice the random write performance of its standard 32GB and 64GB SLC SSDs.

Samsung's enterprise SSDs use 1.25 watts of power in active mode and 0.3 watts in idle mode. They consume less than 25 percent of the power of a 2.5-inch 15K SAS HDD, and provide the lowest possible heat load on a data center air conditioning system.

Available in a 2.5-inch interface, the drives process 100 times the number of IOPS per watt as a typical 15K 2.5-inch SAS HDD and five times the number of IOPS per dollar as a 10K 2.5-inch SCSI HDD.

The SATA 3Gb/s drives read data sequentially at 100MB per second and write it at 80MB/s. They are available worldwide beginning this month.
