Samsung announced new enterprise class SSDs that are now in mass production with 25GB and 50GB capacities. The SSDs are optimized for server applications like video on demand, web serving, and online transaction processing.
The drives use the 2.50-inch interface and promise sequential read speed of 100MB/s with write speeds of 80MB/s. The new drives use SLC technology and offer a low heat load allowing data centers to save on air conditioning costs.
"The Samsung SSDs give IT managers the best in high-performance, high-endurance storage for servers, with markedly less energy consumption," said Gerd Schauss, Director memory marketing, Samsung Semiconductor Europe. "Now being considered by virtually all major PC OEMs, the proven technology of enterprise SSDs provides a compelling combination of price, performance and longevity for many medium-sized businesses as well as large corporations," he added.
