Product Overview Samsung PM983 SSD: Best-in-Class for Enterprise
Samsung’s all-flash solutions for heavy workloads deliver unrivalled performance, reliability and capacity without bottlenecks.

Top Solution for Diverse Applications: High Performance in a Small Form Factor
PM983 offers tremendous performance for Read-Intensive data centers by applying PCIe Gen 3, achieving 540K IOPS in Random Read and 3000 MB/s in sequential read speed. Using impressively low power in small form factors (2.5”, M.2), PM983 delivers an efficient SSD solution for mixed data workloads.

The Samsung SSD PM983 presents outstanding performance with instant responsiveness to the host system, by applying the Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) 3.0 interface standard, as well as highly efficient Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) Protocol.

The Samsung SSD PM983 delivers wide bandwidth of up to 3,000MB/s for sequential read speed and up to 1,900MB/s for sequential write speed under up to 10.6W power. With the help of Toggle 2.0 NAND Flash interface, the Samsung SSD PM983 delivers random performance of up to 540KIOPS for random 4KB read and up to 50KIOPS for random 4KB write in the sustained state.

By combining the enhanced reliability Samsung NAND Flash memory silicon with NAND Flash management technologies, the Samsung SSD PM983 delivers the extended endurance of up to 1.3 drive writes per day over 3 years, which is suitable for enterprise applications, in 2.5" form factor lineups: 960GB, 1.92TB, 3.84TB and 7.68TB.

In addition, the Samsung SSD PM983 supports Power Loss Protection (PLP). PLP solution can guarantee that data issued by the host system are written to the storage media without any loss in the event of sudden power off or sudden power failure. Features • Ultra-High Capacity 2.5” U.2 PCIe NVMe SSD.
• High Speed with Low Latency.
• Enhanced Reliability, Better Performance.

The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster

One of the greatest advances for PCs in recent years has been the introduction of solid-state drives (SSD). These storage drives hold information on flash memory that is managed by a processing chip called a controller. Advantages of SSDs over traditional spinning disks are numerous, from silent operation, lower power to significantly faster performance.
