Introducing the Samsung PM1725a NVMe™ SSD

  • mail
Maximize data transfer with the high-performance, reliable PM1725a Enterprise environments have unique requirements to ensure that they operate optimally 24/7, 365 days a year. A varied level of performance with low latency is essential. It is also critical that these environments remain stable when processing various read and write workloads. And the most crucial criteria of all are protection from data corruption or loss due to unexpected power outages. Considering each of these factors, IT and data center managers are tasked with finding high performing, dependable memory solutions. Samsung is well-equipped to offer enterprise environments superb SSDs. The drives deliver exceptional performance in multithread applications, such as compute and virtualization, relational databases, and storage. These high-performing SSDs also provide outstanding reliability for continual operation regardless of unanticipated power loss. Their reliability also extends to non-interrupt service in case a failure occurs on one of the paths to a port. Using its proven expertise and wealth of experience in cutting-edge SSD technology, Samsung memory solutions helps data centers operate continually at the highest performance levels. Samsung has the added advantage of being the sole manufacturer of all of its SSD components. This advantage helps ensure end-to-end integration, quality assurance and the utmost compatibility. Samsung PM1725a NVMe™ SSD delivers: Exceptional value: The PM1725a utilizes Samsung V-NAND flash memory, which features a unique design that stacks 48 layers on top of another. It also employs cost-effective TLC (triple-level cell) flash memory, which delivers higher reliability than MLC (multi-level cell) planar NAND flash memory SSDs. With this architecture, the PM1725a can deliver enterprise-level performance economically. Consistently high performance: The PM1725a HHHL (halfheight, half-length) card delivers a wide bandwidth of up to 6,400/3,000 MB/s sequential R/W speeds respectively, using under 23 W of power. It delivers up to 1,080K and 170K IOPS for random 4KB read and write, respectively. The PM1725a 2.5- inch SSD delivers a bandwidth of up to 3,300/2,950 MB/s for sequential R/W and up to 800K/160K IOPS for random 4KB R/W, respectively. The PM1725a delivers QoS (quality of service, 99%) of 95μs for random 4KB reads and 60μs for random 4KB writes. Outstanding reliability: Even though the PM1725a employs a TLC V-NAND flash memory, it boasts 5 DWPD (drive writes per day) for 5 years. This rate translates to writing a total of 32 TB each day during that time, which means users can write 6,400 files of 5 GB-equivalent data every day. This level of reliability is more than sufficient for enterprise storage systems that have to perform ultrafast transmissions of large amounts of data. High density: By fitting more memory cells in less space in a V-NAND chip, it provides significantly more capacities of up to 6.4 TB in both the PM1725a 2.5-inch and HHHL card SSDs. Depending on your storage requirements and applications, 800 GB, 1.6TB, 3.2 TB and 6.4 TB capacities are available. Optimized for enterprise environments The Samsung PM1725a SSD is optimized to excel in virtually any data center scenario. This enterprise-level, ultra-high performance SSD provides unsurpassed random read performance and is particularly suitable for read-intensive data center applications. When compared with other standardized Samsung SSDs, the PM1725a SSD provides the highest random read IOPS performance. The PM1725a is equipped with Samsung 3rd-generation TLC V-NAND technology. This technology eliminates performance and reliability issues that result from capacity limitations found in planar NAND technologies. The Samsung V-NAND technology delivers reliable and consistent performance at lower costs for today's demanding data-centric world. Superb performance over SAS SSDs The PM1725a uses a state-of-the-art NVMe™ interface to overcome bottlenecks experienced in SAS (serial-attached SCSI) and SATA interfaces. Furthermore, the PM1725a employs the highest density to successfully process intensive and heavy enterprise workloads. For more information on the PM1725a SSD, please refer to the brochure PDF.
