Escalating big data demands are requiring data centres to find new solutions for processing this high volume, velocity and variety of information. It has become critical for data centres to process enormous amounts of data faster with higher endurance and security. Because much of the huge daily volumes of data are unstructured, there is also an increasing need for big data analysis. With its high-level of performance, endurance, security and energy efficiency, the Samsung SM863 SSD is the ideal choice for online transaction processing (OLTP), and email and database servers. The SM863 is designed with innovative Samsung V-NAND technology to provide all the essentials for data centre environments - more capacity, speed, endurance and power efficiency. This revolutionary technology uses a unique architecture that stacks 32 layers of cells vertically, which reduces cell-to-cell interference typically found in planar NAND. As a result, the SM863 experiences less stress for optimal handling of heavy workloads and sustained data centre endurance.
