Available the first quarter of 2022, Samsung's newest PCIe NVMe SSD, the PM1743 SSD for enterprise servers, incorporating the PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) 5.0 interface with Samsung’s advanced sixth-generation V-NAND. Built to lower server and data center operating costs significantly and also simultaneously helping to reduce carbon footprint:
"Samsung’s PCIe 5.0 SSD will provide nearly two times faster data transfer speeds and 30% enhanced power efficiency than the previous generation, resulting in lower server operating costs."
The Samsung PM1743's read and write speed have been accelerated via a proprietary controller designed to support the latest PCIe standard:
"Samsung’s PM1743 will feature a sequential read speed of up to 13,000 megabytes per second (MB/s) and a random read speed of 2,500K input/output operations per second (IOPS), offering 1.9x and 1.7x faster speeds over the previous PCIe 4.0-based products. Moreover, write speeds have been elevated significantly, with a sequential write speed of 6,600 MB/s and a random write speed of 250K IOPS, also delivering 1.7x and 1.9x faster speeds, respectively. These remarkable data transfer rates will allow enterprise server manufacturers deploying the PM1743 to enjoy a much higher level of performance."
Samsung’s PM1743 will offer high-capacity storage solutions:
"[A] wide variety of capacities from 1.92 terabytes (TB) to 15.36TB, the PM1743 will be offered in the conventional 2.5-inch form factor, as well as in a 3-inch EDSFF (E3.S) — an increasingly popular SSD form factor designed specifically for next-generation enterprise servers and data centers." Another significant PM1743 milestone is the industry’s first PCIe 5.0 SSD with dual-port support, "guaranteeing server operational stability and high availability when a connection to one port fails."
The Samsung’s PM1743 will also feature advanced security features which were typically only available at the server level:
"By embedding a security processor and Root of Trust (RoT), the SSD will protect against security threats and data forgery to provide data confidentiality and integrity, while also enabling Secure Boot in server systems through attestation."
Samsung is now delivering samples of the PM1743 to global chipset and server manufacturers for joint system development.
