      Samsung All-Flash Array Reference Design

      Choose a better alternative to HDDs for data storage

      Move beyond limitations

      Data demands are pushing HDDs to performance limits, requiring IT decision makers (ITDMs) to find optimized alternatives.
      All-Flash Arrays (AFA) consist of multiple flash memory drives to offer a better price-to-performance ratio.
      As a result, data centers can move beyond their current limitations.

      From SSDs to ecosystems
      From SSDs to ecosystems
      Save time and costs by adopting the Samsung AFA Reference Design. Samsung provides SSD optimization expertise for a faster design, validation and qualification process, in collaboration with original design manufacturing (ODMs) partners and independent software vendors (ISVs).

      Samsung’s commitment reaches beyond supplying world-class SSDs. Our goal is to build a strong AFA ecosystem for ITDMs and partners.
