Samsung Introduces “Green�? SSD for Enterprise, Data Centers

Samsung Electronics has developed a 100 gigabyte (GB) solid state drive for use in servers for applications such as video on demand, streaming media content delivery, Internet data centers, virtualization and on-line transaction processing.


The new performance-optimized 100GB Enterprise SSD

can process IOPS (input/output per second) more than 10 times faster than the fastest 15K rpm SAS HDD available for transactional data workloads, with a random read speed of 25K and a random write speed of 6K. Samsung said its new drive can process as much as 100 times the number of IOPS per watt as a 15K rpm 2.5-inch SAS HDD in applications where higher performance and lower power consumption are both needed.


The high-performance 2.5-inch enterprise drive reads data sequentially at 230 megabytes per second (MB/s) and writes sequentially at 180 MB/s.


Samsung's enterprise SSDs use 1.9 watts of power in active mode and 0.6 watts in idle mode, minimizing power and heat loads. These "green" ratings out perform 15K HDDs, which typically consume between 8 to 15 watts in active mode and 1 to 2 watts in idle mode.
