Enhanced for speed
and reliability

The 983 DCT is the solution to achieving high responsiveness in data centers
requiring accelerated performance. Available in M.2 or 2.5-inch form factors in capacities of 960GB and 1.92TB,
the 983 DCT enables your business to excel in handling big data.

1GB=1 billion bytes by IDEMA. Actual usable capacity may be less (due to formatting, partitioning, operating system, applications or otherwise).

Seamless,
high-powered performance

Get fast results with the next-gen NVMe interface. Sequential read/write speeds of up to 3,000/1,900 MB/s (2.5-inch),
random read/write speeds of up to 540K/50K IOPS (2.5-inch), and a suberb level of QoS (quality of service)
allow for real-time big data analytics.

Random performance measured using FIO 2.7 in CentOS6.6 (kernel 3.14.29) with 4KB (4,096 bytes) of data transfer size in queue depth 32 by 4

workers and Sequential performance with 128KB (131,072 bytes) of data transfer size in queue depth 32 by 1 worker.

Secure
critical data

Data integrity is critical to data center SSD.
The 983 DCT is safeguarded with end-to-end data
protection to ensure consistency over the entire
data transfer path and prevents data corruption in
case of power failure with power loss protection.

Enhanced
operations
efficiency

Accomplish far more with less. Achieve higher efficiency
and performance compared to legacy storage systems,
with fewer servers, reduced power and cooling, and lower TCO*,
all with efficient management from the advanced
Samsung SSD Toolkit software.

  • 1) 1 GB = 1 Billion bytes by IDEMA. Actual usable capacity may be less (due to formatting, partitioning, operating system, applications or otherwise).
  • 2) Based on PCI Express Gen3 x4.
    1) Random performance measured using FIO 2.7 in CentOS6.6 (kernel 3.14.29) with 4KB (4,096 bytes) of data transfer size in queue depth 32 by 4 workers and Sequential performance with 128KB (131,072 bytes) of data transfer size in queue depth 32 by 1 worker.
    2) 1 MB/sec = 1,000,000 bytes/sec was used in sequential performance.
  • 3) Actual power consumption may vary depending on system hardware & configuration. Active power is measured using IOMeter2006 on Windows Server 2012.
  • 4) MTBF is Mean Time Between Failure. By definition, Mean Time between Failures (MTBF) is the estimated time between failures occurring during SSD operation.
  • 5) Uncorrectable Bit Error Rate (UBER) is a metric for the rate of occurrence of data errors, equal to the number of data errors per bits read as specified in the JESD218 document of JEDEC standard. For enterprise applications, JEDEC recommends that UBER should be below 10-16.
