Samsung Electronics, a leading maker of solid-state drives, has announced that Samsung's SM1625 SSD, a high-performing solid state drive with high density and low power consumption has been certified by VMware as an optimized solution for VMware Virtual SAN.

The SM1625 SSD, Samsung's first dual-ported SAS SSD – available in densities of 100GB, 200GB, 400GB and 800GB – has been certified for VMware Virtual SAN for use in data centers and other enterprise applications. VMware Virtual SAN is a new offering that allows customers to pool server disks and flash resources to create a resilient, high-performance and dynamic shared storage solution for virtual machines.

The newly certified SAS SM1625 enterprise storage, which is based on NAND flash memory made using 20nm process technology, can read data sequentially at 950MB/s. In addition, the SM1625 has a random read speed of 120 000 IOPS (inputs/outputs per second). Further, it can handle up to 10 drive writes per day, an endurance rate that covers a typical warranty period for its full five years.

"VMware Virtual SAN provides customers a simpler and more flexible tier of storage for their virtual machines. By clustering flash and direct-attached storage, VMware Virtual SAN provides a shared storage solution that is high-performing, cost-effective, and seamlessly integrated into VMware vCenter Server. We are pleased to have Samsung's SM1625 SSD as a high-performance storage option for our joint customers," said John Gilmartin, vice president of cloud infrastructure products at Vmware.

The SM1625 is the starting lineup of how Samsung has been driving development of the industry's most advanced SAS SSD solutions to enable significant improvements in server system performance, while meeting a rapidly growing need for energy efficiency and higher densities.

Samsung will continue to partner with VMware to offer other high performance, power saving solid state drives with rich-storage optimized features, such as V-NAND and NVMe SSDs for use with VMware infrastructure.

"We are very enthusiastic about this SM1625 certification as the basis for partnering with VMware to offer a SAS storage solution for the enterprise. We will work closely with not only our OEM customers but also global software companies such as VMware in looking to develop high performing and environmentally-friendly IT systems for data center applications and enterprise storage," said JaeHyeong Lee, vice president of memory product planning and application engineering at Samsung Electronics.
