New SSD solutions available at Ahead-IT

15/03/2016
In Q2 of 2015, Samsung debuted a couple of new SSD solutions for enterprise businesses. Back then already, the PM863 and SM863 caught our eye. Now that we have them in stock, we can say for sure that these SATA 6Gbps enterprise drives are quite the powerhouses.
 
Here are the specs, so you can judge for yourself.

What they do

The PM863 is developed for read-intensive applications, such as streaming services, web servers, cloud services and more. The SM983, on the other hand, aims at write-intensive applications, including financial services and online transaction processing.

Recommended by Ahead-IT

A series of benchmarks measuring average latency and transactions per seconds prove both the PM and the SM983 are extremely impressive performers. Both products get our stamp of approval.
