The future of server and network infrastructure

As 5G connectivity ushers in the era of cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality, it is changing both the lives of consumers and the infrastructure on which they rely. New use cases have shifted demands for the global server market and changed the direction of technology infrastructure. This digital transformation has meant optimizing servers with fast, high-density memory and storage solutions that can support both traditional and Hybrid Cloud workloads while maintaining cost efficiency. It has also meant that network bandwidth and reliability are more important than ever as businesses shift to the cloud or move away from using data centers, pushing an emphasis on edge computing. Samsung puts power and performance at the heart of its semiconductor solutions for servers and networks, ensuring enterprise users always have fast, reliable, cost-efficient infrastructure solutions.

Performance meets Reliability

From streaming video to cloud-computing, the world is trending towards data-heavy workloads. Enterprise server and storage administrators face a serious challenge in building stable, mission-critical infrastructure on a budget. Samsung brings reliability and superior performance to server solutions with end-to-end integration and complete quality control. Samsung’s impressive lineup of enterprise SSDs offers a variety of interfaces and form factors to deliver maximum performance no matter what kind of ecosystem you are operating in. Samsung also delivers a range of RDIMM and LRDIMM DRAM products designed for server applications that offer DIMM capacities ranging from 8 GB to 256 GB.

the potential of 5G

The era of 5G and premium devices has produced new opportunities for services and platforms. From AR to IoT, there is a growing demand for edge computing and distributed cloud capabilities. But delivering these technologies requires that equipment be designed for complex, scalable network deployments that are capable of supporting high capacities and a variety of connections. Samsung offers best-in-class memory solutions, including DRAM and SSDs, that allow for easy customization to meet the demands of Edge Computing. Samsung’s range of DDR4 RDIMM and DDR4 LRDIMM offer high-density DIMMS with capacities as high as 256 GB. Meanwhile, HBM2 Aquabolt high-bandwidth memory dramatically increases performance and efficiency allowing service providers to leverage 5G to unlock all new opportunities.

HBM2 Aquabolt

A breakthrough in memory

A new breakthrough in memory has emerged for power-intensive, high-performance computing applications. Just four HBM2 Aquabolt packages in a system can deliver lightning speeds of up to 1.2 TB/s. HBM2 Aquabolt also offers 1024 I/O with 2.4 Gbps per pin speed at 1.2 V and a tenfold improvement on data rate transmission speed compared to the 8 Gb GDDR5. Its innovative design also reduces read and write power consumption by approximately 30% and 20% respectively.

Optimized performance

When speed and power matter most, Samsung’s DDR4 RDIMM delivers optimized server performance. Adding Samsung DDR4 RDIMM not only maximizes CPU performance and computing potential, but also enables more robust and responsive virtual machines and applications. Built with the latest DRAM technology, Samsung’s DDR4 RDIMM offers module densities of up to 256 GB and speeds of up to 3,200 Mbps, allowing enterprise server managers to optimize system performance by increasing the memory capacities of servers.

More bandwidth, more capacity

With increased bandwidth and total system memory capacity, Samsung DDR4 LRDIMM addresses the inherent limitations of memory-dependent server applications, which are often restricted by RDIMM channel ranking. Engineered to reduce the electrical load on the CPU, Samsung DDR4 LRDIMM can run at a higher frequency, enabling more memory bandwidth as a result. Whether for virtualization, cloud computing, Big Data or HPC, server managers will be hard-pressed to find a more cost-effective solution.

Unparalleled data management

To handle the ever-increasing demands of modern computing, server solution SSDs need to handle vast data volumes and manage dynamic data traffic efficiently. Samsung’s PCIe® Gen 4 PM1733 SSD answers that call, doubling the throughput of Gen 3 SSD such as PM1723b.* With capable sequential read speeds up to 6.4 GB/s and random read speeds up to 1,500K IOPS, the PM1733 comes in both U.2 (30.72 TB) and HHHL (15.36 TB) form factors and is backward compatible with Gen 3 architecture for maximum flexibility.
* Only for U.2 (2.5") form factor each.
