Samsung Unveils Comprehensive Data Center SSD Lineup for SMBs in India


Samsung, country’s most trusted consumer electronics and mobile phone brand, today unveiled the Samsung Data Center solid-state drive (SSD) lineup for Small and Medium Business (SMBs) in India. The new portfolio is designed to address the current and future trends in high performance computing storage in the big data era for small and medium businesses (SMBs). Engineered to meet the evolving needs of SMBs, the SSDs are faster with sustained performance and come in higher capacities and enterprise-class reliability and security.

Samsung’s new SSD portfolio will raise the bar for efficiency compared to legacy storage systems, requiring fewer servers and reduced power and cooling for a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). The new lineup delivers better Quality of Service (QoS) for SMBs by reducing latency and lowering data delays. The entire lineup provides enhanced reliability and endurance for 24/7 operation, backed by a 5-year limited warranty and optimal Drive Writes Per Day (DWPD) ratings.

SMBs want solutions which are value for money and the right fit to their specific business needs. With our strong legacy in technology innovation and OEM engineering expertise, we have brought this simple, yet optimized SSD line up, which is future-proof when it comes to addressing today’s super computer trends,” said Sukesh Jain, Senior Vice President, IT and Mobile Enterprise Business, Samsung India.

The comprehensive, new SSD lineup includes the following solutions to meet the widest range of SMB data storage needs:

The 860 DCT 

The 860 DCT is designed for servers requiring SSD-levels of sustained performance and is suitable for various applications including content delivery networks. It allows for a lower TCO compared to hard disk drives (HDDs) and offers high capacities up to 4TB. The 860 DCT is the perfect solution for content delivery network systems and comes with a 0.20 DWPD rating.

The 883 DCT 

The 883 DCT is designed for servers used to safeguard critical data, including power loss protection and end-to-end data protection. It offers a high QoS under the SATA interface and will be available in a number of capacities ranging from 240GB to 3.84TB at a 0.8 DWPD rating.

The 983 DCT

The 983 DCT is a high-performance solution for servers using an NVMe™ interface, which allows for blazing-fast speeds and high responsiveness. It comes in two form factors – 2.5-inch and M.2 – and will deliver sequential read/write speeds of up to 3,400/2,200 MB/s (2.5-inch) and 3,000/1,430 MB/s (M.2). The 983 DCT is ideal for real-time big data analytics applications and comes with a 0.8 DWPD rating.

The 983 ZET

The 983 ZET is a powerful cache memory solution that offers a new level of performance with ultra-low latency, high level of QoS, breakthrough speeds and high reliability. It is the perfect storage solution for read cache applications such as hybrid caching servers and NoSQL DB, and it comes with a 10 DWPD rating.

All of Samsung’s new Data Center SSDs integrate with the advanced Samsung SSD Toolkit, which allows for efficient and simple maintenance – firmware updates, data erasure, over-provisioning setup and disk status information.

The price of this new lineup will range from INR 9,599 to INR 2,01,299 and will be available at leading retail outlets.
