EMC collaborated with Samsung to qualify Samsung's new enterprise-class SSDs for EMC's midrange storage portfolio, according to Joel Schwartz, senior VP, Common Storage Platform Operations at EMC.
Samsung started producing its 3.5-inch 100GB and 200GB SSDs in September. By using 40nm-class single-level-cell (SLC) NAND flash chips and a controller that fully utilizes a 3Gb/s SATA interface, the Samsung SSDs process random read commands at 47,000 input/outputs per second (IOPS) and random writes at 29,000 IOPS, compared to a 15K RPM HDD which has an IOPS rate of 350, a 130X and 80X gain respectively in random IOPS read and write performance.
In addition, the new Samsung 200GB SSDs read data sequentially at 260MB/s and write it sequentially at 245MB/s, throughput that maximizes the SATA 3Gb/s interface bus speed.
Samsung claimed it now has the industry's widest range of densities of enterprise SSD products for server and storage applications including 2.5-inch 50, 60, 100 and 120GB SSDs and 3.5-inch 100GB and 200GB SSDs.
