Samsung Electronics has introduced a new solid-state drive (SSD) company that displays namespace (ZNS) technology, PM1731A, which will maximize the capacity of users available and offer longer life on storage servers, data centers and the cloud environment.
Built on Samsung’s sixth generation V-NAND, 2.5-inch PM1731A will come in two Terabytes (TB) models and four TB. The SSD will display a double port, ensuring the drive can be fully accessed for sustainable operation and minimizing downtime. It is important for public cloud companies and companies that cannot stop in the sustainability of their business.
Enhanced SSD will enable the company customers to handle large data and artificial intelligence applications with far greater efficiency, Samsung said in a press statement.
Samsung big bet on ZNS Tech
Samsung, who hopes to expand the ZNS ecosystem, will make it available for XNVME which provides libraries and software tools to improve the performance of NVME devices. Samsung said it also participated in the Community Development of Storage Kit Performance (SPDK) made by Intel, allowing SPDK users to implement ZNS easier.
ZNS technology stores data in groups based on their use and frequency of access, and stores it in sequence in an independent zone in the SSD. So, ZNS SSD can significantly reduce the number of data rearrangement operations.
“This will make the drive last up to four times longer than conventional NVME SSD, making it a more green, more sustainable solution for server infrastructure,” Claimed by the Company.
ZNS also allows users to utilize SSD full capacity by eliminating the need for overprovemiing, which will require a storage reservation for the background task, he added.
Samsung hopes to produce its mass SSDS ZNS in the second half of this year.
