Stay ahead of the game in today's data-centric climate with Samsung Z-SSD

Samsung Z-SSD™ offers a new level of storage for today’s in-memory databases, artificial intelligence (AI) workloads, high-performance computing (HPC) workloads, and Internet of Things (IoT) analytics. The Z-SSD simultaneously combines extremely low latency, state-of-the-art performance, and ultimate reliability into a single, ready-to-install storage device ideal for enterprise storage applications.

Ultra-low latency to improve response time

Enabling faster access and response, Z-SSD provides 5 times lower latency at 20 microseconds, compared to today's leading NVMe™ SSDs*.
The latest storage server with Z-SSD is to see its latency reduced significantly, delivering a tangible performance acceleration.
