SM863 is designed to excel in data center’s intensive workload environment. It delivers consistently exceptional QoS (Quality of Service) as well as low latency in both random read/write. In environments like TPC-C (OLTP), SM863 outperforms others in TPS and average response time.
Samsung Enterprise Solid State Drives (SSDs) are being used increasingly as data storage media in computing, communication, and multimedia devices. Most SSDs use NAND Flash memory as the storage media, which is capable of retaining data without an external power supply. A typical SSD consists of two main components: the data storage device and a controller for the storage device that acts as an interface between the SSD and the host system. The SSD controller manages the interfaces from both the host side and the device side, which includes mapping bad data blocks, caching read/write data, and error checking and correction (ECC); and the controller's built-in ROM contains the firmware needed to control the drive. An SSD is an example of an embedded system, and needs a Real-Time OS (RTOS) for its operation. Several open source and proprietary firmware solutions are available for SSD controllers
The primary advantage of using Samsung SSDs is their lack of moving parts, resulting in extremely short startup and shutdown/standby times. SSDs offer superior reliability compared to traditional Hard Disk Drives (HDDs). Advances in semiconductor flash memory technologies have enabled the development of SSDs that are equal in capacities to HDDs and can be used as direct replacements. SSDs also prove to be highly cost effective in-use due to their much lower power consumption and maintenance costs. As the world leader in semiconductor memory technology, Samsung offers a comprehensive range of SSDs for deployment in a wide range of devices across every industry segment.
Features Samsung’s SM863 SSDs feature our own V-NAND technology and are built from Samsung components. They are an ideal storage solution for write-intensive applications such as mail servers, data warehousing and high performance computing, providing high endurance for around the clock operations.
• Built for write-intensive enterprise applications with Samsung's proprietary 2-bit MLC V-NAND.
• Built for sustained performance with strong IOPS consistency.
• Tantalum capacitors for power loss protection.
• Low latency and high quality of service (QoS).
Samsung's V-NAND flash memory helps to overcome the limitations of conventional planar NAND architecture. It stacks 32 cell layers vertically over one another rather than trying to fit itself onto a fixed horizontal space, in order to provide high density and performance with a small footprint.
Built to handle the 24/7 operation and heavier workloads of data center usage, the SM863 delivers an exceptionally high level of sustained performance and consistent low latency over the life of the SSD to meet the demands for increasing data handling.
When combined in RAID configurations with multiple drives, small variations are multiplied and lead to significant effects on performance. The SM863 delivers an exceptional level of performance above 99% in random read, as well as superior performance in random write.
The SM863 is optimized for server and data center environments by offering reinforced endurance, enterprise-grade power-loss protection thanks to tantalum capacitors, low power consumption and a 5-year limited warranty.
Latency and QoS
The SM863 offers extremely low latency and a high level of Quality of Service (QoS), which are both essential for data center and cloud server applications.
Advanced ECC Engine and End-to-End Data Protection
Detect signal discrepancies and proactively remedy them in real time with the Error Correcting Code (ECC) engine.
Protect data integrity from unexpected power loss with Samsung's advanced power-loss protection architecture. Using the electricity from a tantalum capacitor to provide enough time to transfer the cached data in the DRAM to the flash memory, you can be assured no loss of data.
Monitor the computer drives proactively to detect and report various reliability indicators with Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T).
Dynamic Thermal Guard Protection
Safeguard the SSD from overheating by automatically controlling the speed of the CPU relative to its core temperature, by throttling back the performance to prevent thermal shutdown.

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.
