Industry's First NVMe PCIe SSD, from Samsung, Now Featured in Dell's New PowerEdge R920 Server
SAN JOSE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Samsung (News - Alert) Electronics Co., Ltd., the world leader in advanced memory
technology, announced today that its 1.6 terabyte (TB) NVMe
(non-volatile memory express) solid state drive is featured in the new Dell
PowerEdge R920 server. Together, Samsung and Dell (News - Alert) are the first in
the world to ship PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) SSDs
using an NVMe protocol, enabling customers to get results faster.
"We have been working closely with Dell to optimize the storage
capabilities of the PowerEdge R920, and believe that our NVMe PCIe SSD
provides the best enterprise storage solution, offering ultra-low
latency and surpassing the IOPS (input/output operations per second)
performance of currently available SSDs," said Jim Elliott, corporate
vice president, memory and SSD marketing, Samsung Semiconductor, Inc.
"Samsung will continue to take the initiative in accelerating growth of
the NVMe PCIe SSD market for green IT investment by providing NVMe PCIe
solutions with high performance, density and scalability."
"Dell has long been a leader in driving industry interoperability
standards, and by collaborating with Samsung to deliver Flash NVMe PCIe
SSDs in the PowerEdge R920 we're improving storage latency and reducing
response time, making it aster for customers to deliver business
results," said Brian Payne, executive director, Server Solutions, Dell.
"The Dell PowerEdge R920 is not only our fastest performing server to
date but the first in the industry to ship with NVMe PCIe SSDs. This is
an important milestone for the NVMe community and we expect it will help
facilitate the widespread use of NVMe PCIe SSDs."
Samsung NVMe PCIe SSDs, which can write random data in 25 microseconds,
markedly increase the performance of servers, such as those used for big
data tasks, and are significantly faster than disk-based arrays in high
performance computing applications.
The 1.6TB, 2.5 inch, SFF-8639 NVMe PCIe SSD provides a sequential read
speed of 3,000 megabytes per second, while being able to process random
read data at up to 750,000 IOPS (input output operations per second),
which is more than three times as fast as conventional high-end SAS (News - Alert)
12Gbps SSD storage options.
Samsung's 1.6TB NVMe PCIe SSD also processes 25 percent more IOPS per
watt than 12Gbps SAS SSDs. In addition, its "power loss protection"
capability ensures that data issued by the host system can be written to
storage media without any data loss in the event of a sudden power
Well suited for enterprise applications, the drive delivers an extended
endurance of up to seven drive writes per day (DWPD) for five years,
meets the PCIe 3.0 interface standard, and is available in densities of
400GB, 800GB and 1,600GB.
The Dell PowerEdge R920 with Flash NVMe PCIe SSDs is now available
