Provided with redundant components, SSD new devices can be repaired automatically without external intervention, ensuring the smooth operation of a system, with a very low risk of losing important data.
Named PM1733 and PM1735, the two series of SSDs for the system server will be in no less than 19 different models in terms of storage capacity. Available for the U.2 format and as PCIe expansion boards, they will have storage capacities ranging from 0.8TB and up to 30.72TB.
According to Samsung, the connection through the PCIe 4.0 interface allows the transfer speed of 8000 MB/s for reading and 6400 MB/s for writing. In practice, reaching this speed will also depend on the type of PC used; desktop systems can limit the transfer speed from certain specific points of view.
Addressing business customers and used in server environments where a high level of redundancy is required, Samsung SSDs will be more expensive than other alternatives for common consumers. Although widely used, “failure-in-place” technology responsible for ensuring clear and possibly fault-free SSD operation across the entire NAND chip involves higher costs for most of the prospective buyers.
It is expected that some of the new technologies introduced for the range of enterprise SSDs to also appear in future models addressed to mass consumers, improving performance and reliability. For example, Samsung has included features on the new SSDs to optimize performance and increase reliability over time, based on AI technologies that could also be adapted for low-cost devices.
