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).

M.2 and 2.5 inch Samsung Data Center SSD 983 DCT with and NVM Express™ logos.

Seamless,
high-powered performance

Get fast results with the next-gen NVMe™ interface. Sequential read/write speeds of up to 3,400/2,200 MB/s (2.5-inch),
random read/write speeds of up to 580K/52K IOPS (2.5-inch), and a suberb level of QoS (quality of service)
allow for real-time big data analytics.

M.2 and 2.5 inch Samsung Data Center SSD 983 DCT with infographic describing 99.99% High QoS. 2.5 inch 983 DCT with Sequential Reads up to 3,400 MB/s and Sequential Writes up to 2,200 MB/s. M.2 983 DCT with Sequential Reads up to 3,000 MB/s and Sequential Writes up to 1,430 MB/s.

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.
