Samsung Announces 1Tb V-NAND, 16TB NGSFF SSD, Z-SSD and More
Samsung Introduces Considerably-reaching V-NAND Memory Solutions to Deal with Data Processing and Storage Issues
Groundbreaking offerings include things like 1Tb V-NAND, 16TB NGSFF SSD, Z-SSD and Critical Benefit SSD
SAN JOSE & SANTA CLARA, CA ─ August 8, 2017 ─ Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world leader in advanced memory technological innovation, has introduced new V-NAND (Vertical NAND) memory methods and technological innovation that will address the urgent specifications of following-era knowledge processing and storage devices. With the speedy boost of knowledge-intensive apps across lots of industries making use of artificial intelligence and Online of Issues (IoT) systems, the function of flash memory has become really significant in accelerating the velocity at which info can be extracted for actual-time investigation.
At the inaugural Samsung Tech Working day* and this year’s Flash Memory Summit**, Samsung is showcasing methods to address following-era knowledge processing troubles centered all around the company’s newest V-NAND technological innovation and an array of stable point out drives (SSDs). These methods will be at the forefront of enabling today’s most knowledge-intensive responsibilities this kind of as significant-effectiveness computing, equipment understanding, actual-time analytics and parallel computing.
“Our new, hugely advanced V-NAND systems will offer smarter methods for larger worth by offering significant knowledge processing speeds, improved technique scalability and ultra-very low latency for today’s most demanding cloud-primarily based apps,” claimed Gyoyoung Jin, govt vice president and head of Memory Enterprise at Samsung Electronics. “We will continue to pioneer flash innovation by leveraging our experience in advanced 3D-NAND memory technological innovation to considerably enhance the way in which info-wealthy knowledge is processed.
Samsung heralds era of 1-terabit (Tb) V-NAND chip
Samsung introduced a 1Tb V-NAND chip that it expects to be offered following 12 months. To begin with talked about in 2013, in the course of unveiling of the industry’s very first 3D NAND, Samsung has been doing work to enable its main memory systems to realize 1 terabit of potential on a single chip making use of a V-NAND framework.
The arrival of a 1Tb V-NAND chip following 12 months will enable 2TB of memory in a single V-NAND package by stacking 16 1Tb dies and will signify 1 of the most crucial memory advancements of the past 10 years.
NGSFF (Upcoming Era Compact Kind Issue) SSD to strengthen server storage potential and IOPS
Samsung is sampling the industry’s very first 16-terabyte (TB) NGSFF SSD, which will substantially strengthen the memory storage potential and IOPS (enter/output operations per second) of today’s 1U rack servers. Measuring 30.5mm x 110mm x 4.38mm, the Samsung NGSFF SSD delivers hyper-scale knowledge centre servers with significantly enhanced room utilization and scaling alternatives.
Utilizing the new NGSFF travel as an alternative of M.2 drives in a 1U server can boost the storage potential of the technique by four situations. To spotlight the pros, Samsung shown a reference server technique that delivers 576TB in a 1U rack, making use of 36 16TB NGSFF SSDs. The 1U reference technique can system about 10 million random study IOPS, which triples the IOPS effectiveness of a 1U server equipped with 2.5-inch SSDs. A petabyte potential can be achieved making use of only two of the 576TB devices.
Samsung designs to start out mass generating its very first NGSFF SSDs in the fourth quarter of this 12 months, although doing work to standardize the form element with field partners.
Z-SSD: optimized for devices necessitating rapid memory responsiveness
Adhering to previous year’s introduction of its Z-SSD technological innovation, Samsung introduced its very first Z-SSD product, the SZ985. Featuring ultra-very low latency and significant effectiveness, the Z-SSD will be made use of in knowledge facilities and organization devices working with really large, knowledge-intensive responsibilities this kind of as actual-time “big data” analytics and significant-effectiveness server caching. Samsung is collaborating with numerous of its buyers on integrating the Z-SSD in forthcoming apps.
The Samsung SZ985 demands only 15 microseconds of study latency time which is about a seventh of the study latency of an NVMe*** SSD. At the software stage, the use of Samsung’s Z-SSDs can lower technique reaction time by up to 12 situations, in comparison to making use of NVMe SSDs.
With its rapid reaction time, the new Z-SSD will engage in a pivotal function in removing storage bottlenecks in the organization and in bettering the whole price of possession (TCO).
New approach to storage with proprietary Critical Benefit SSD technological innovation
Samsung also introduced a entirely new technological innovation referred to as Critical Benefit SSD. The title refers to a hugely modern approach of processing complex knowledge sets. With the sharply growing use of social media solutions and IoT apps, which add to the generation of item knowledge this kind of as textual content, graphic, audio and online video data files, the complexity in processing this knowledge raises significantly.
Right now, SSDs transform item knowledge of commonly ranging measurements into knowledge fragments of a unique dimensions referred to as “blocks.” The use of these blocks demands implementation processes consisting of LBA (reasonable block addressing) and PBA (bodily block addressing) methods. However, Samsung’s new Critical Benefit SSD technological innovation will allow SSDs to system knowledge without changing it into blocks. Samsung’s Critical Benefit as an alternative assigns a ‘key’ or unique place to each individual ”value,” or piece of item knowledge – irrespective of its dimensions. The essential permits immediate addressing of a knowledge place, which in switch permits the storage to be scaled. Samsung’s Critical Benefit technological innovation permits SSDs to scale-up (vertically) and scale-out (horizontally) in effectiveness and potential. As a outcome, when knowledge is study or written, a Critical Benefit SSD can lower redundant methods, which prospects to faster knowledge inputs and outputs, as well as growing TCO and considerably extending the existence of an SSD.
