Samsung PM853T Enterprise SSD Released Discussion

Recommended Posts

Samsung announced that it has begun mass production of the PM853T, the industry’s first high-performance, three-bit-NAND-based SSD for servers and data centers. Samsung's PM853T is quoted to deliver a 30 percent increase in manufacturing efficiency compared to SSDs that use 2-bit NAND flash components.

Whole lot of marketing BS. Writing multiple times 3-bit SSD, 3-bit NAND MLC and so on only to avoid the dreaded word: TLC.

The PM853T allows data centers to better manage workloads related to social networking, web browsing, and email, and also improves operation efficiency

Compared to what? Certainly not MLCs.

provides high levels of random IOPS performance

Yeah, on par with other SSDs and for sustained writes well below the competition.

As a result, Samsung expects the adoption of 3-bit SSDs in data centers to replace the 2-bit SSD market at a rapid pace

Based on consumer market experiences of 840/840 Evo it won't happen. Data center managers are not known for their purpose to choose TLC over MLC/SLC. Especially when they check lifetime of TLC vs MLC in heavy usage environments and calculate TCO.

These releases always start out that way...we have review unit requests in and will be comparing to the SM843T so we'll see exactly what's up.

As to adoption, I agree. Samsung is facing an uphill battle in mainline enterprise. Maybe Hyperscale/webscale will be more amenable to giving these drives a whirl, we'll have to wait and see. But Dell, EMC, etc. won't be adding these to their arrays any time soon.
