Samsung announces 8TB NVMe enterprise SSD

Impressive capacity

Samsung has announced the release of the NF1 8TB, its highest-density datacenter NVMe drive. With the NF1 SSD, Samsung expects to quickly replace conventional 2.5-inch SSDs and create impressive storage space in 2U rack servers.

As mentioned above, Samsung has announced a new enterprise SSD with a capacity of 8TB. The SSD is built with 16 of Samsung's 512-gigabyte (GB) NAND packages, each stacked in 16 layers of 256 gigabit (Gb) 3-bit V-NAND chips. The NF1 also sports 12GB LPDDR4 DRAM for faster and more energy-efficient data processing. Performance wise, the NF1 is set to deliver sequential reads and writes at 3'100MB/s and 2'000MB/s, respectively. Regarding random read/write performance this drive can hit up to 500K/50K IOPS in random read and writes respectively.

The endurance level is pretty high, since you can write an entire 8TB SSD 1.3 times a day over its three-year warranty period. According to latest rumors, Samsung will add a 512Gb 3-bit V-NAND based SSD in the second half of this year. In this way the company can offer faster SSDs for big data applications.
