“Samsung Green SSD products are widely acknowledged for their superior performance and quality design having contributed to data center system improvements and operational cost savings,” said Young-Hyun Jun, executive vice president, memory sales & marketing, Samsung Electronics. “In response to customer demand, we are accelerating the growth of the flash storage market with new SSD offerings this year like the SM843T, while reinforcing our competitive edge in next-generation SSD products and solutions.”

The SM843T strengthens Samsung’s SATA interface enterprise SSD product lineup. Offering up to 960 gigabytes (GB) of memory storage for faster and more efficient Big Data systems and cloud computing environments, the SM843T offers the industry’s most advanced performance level for SATA 6.0 SSDs.

When equipping enterprise servers in data centers with SM843T SSDs, IT managers will see a performance gain of 6 times and energy savings of 30 percent over the widely-used hard disk drives, enabling sharply improved system-level performance and greater energy efficiency at the same time.

In addition, the SM843T protects the most recent data being processed from a sudden power interruption, for enhanced system reliability. Along with this power loss protection and Samsung’s dedication to optimized systems, solutions and software technology, also referred as “3S Technology,” the SM843T achieves the highest QoS (Quality of Service) level required by global cloud service providers and financial institutions.

Through mass production of the SM843T, Samsung’s competitive edge in the advanced PC market has expanded into the high value-added enterprise SSD market with the company providing highest quality solutions to its customers.

The new Samsung SM843T line-up boasts high performance and endurance levels, respectively, reaching up to 98,000 (sustained) random read IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second) and 20,000 sequential TBW (Terabytes Written) with the 960GB model, while providing an ideal environment for Big Data systems.

According to IHS iSuppli, the global SSD market is expected to reach approximately USD 10 billion in revenues by the end of 2013, a 43 percent increase over the previous year, led by sales of enterprise SSDs which it expects will account for approximately 47 percent of the market in 2013.
