Samsung 845DC Evo 480GB SSD
• 480GB 2.5 inch internal solid state drive (SSD) that is designed for read intensive servers and applications
• SATA III 6 Gb/s connection with a read speed of 530MB/s and a write speed of 410MB/s for extremely quick data transfer
• Reads 87,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS)
• 3 bit MLC NAND (TLC NAND) technology with Samsung’s optimised SSD controller provides improved performance and endurance compared to other products that use TLC NAND technologyWhat is the performance like on this SSD?
The Samsung 480GB 845DC Evo SSD (Manufacture’s Code: MZ-7GE480EW) is perfect for read intensive applications. These include web servers and content delivery networks, where data is written once, updated infrequently and accessed on-demand by a vast amount of users. 480GB of storage provides you with enough space for more than 70 hours of high definition video and an enormous amount of space for documentation. A read speed of 530MB/s and write speed of 410MB/s, provides you with very quick data transfer rates. In addition, a random read IOPS of 87,000 and random read latency (how quickly each read IOPS takes) of 115µs, lets clients access data stored with little delay, which is important for the busy world we live in today.
Why use SSDs instead of HDDs for server/data centre use?
The satisfaction of clients accessing servers relies on handling data quickly and accurately, especially with the rise of personal, mobile and cloud computing. Hard drive disks (HDDs) are great for storing massive volumes of data that isn’t frequently accessed, but the speed benefits of SSDs makes them ideal for use when data needs to be accessed quickly and often. SSDs also run quieter and cooler than your traditional hard drive, so there’s less of a need to sound dampen and intensely cool any server rooms made up of SSDs.
How has this SSD been optimised for server/data centre use?
Along with the standard SSD features of advanced error correcting code (ECC) and self-monitoring, analysis and reporting technology (SMART) this Samsung 845DC Evo SSD has other features that make it perfect for long term server use. The ECC engine detects signal discrepancies and fixes them in real time, improving reliability. The SMART monitors various reliability indicators, allowing it to detect an anticipated failure, so you have enough time to replace the drive without losing precious data.
To ensure data is not lost during an unexpected power loss, the 845DC EVO uses a tantalum capacitor to give itself enough time to transfer data to it’s flash memory. The SSD also has a dynamic thermal guard protection mechanism which protects the SSD from overheating – delaying requests until temperatures have dropped to normal levels. This not only protects data but internal hardware too.
