The Samsung MZ-QL27T60 PM9A3 is a high-performance solid-state drive (SSD) with a storage capacity of 7.68 terabytes. It uses the U.2 form factor and connects to a computer via PCI Express (PCI-E) interface with Dual Ports X2, specifically designed for datacenter environments. It provides high speed data read-write operations and high endurance to handle demanding datacenter workloads. This SSD drive can be used to store large amounts of data, such as database files, virtual machines, backups, and more, and can significantly improve the performance of data-intensive applications.
The Samsung MZ-QL27T60 PM9A3 SSD has been designed with exceptional reliability in mind for use in datacenter environments. It utilizes advanced technologies such as Error Correction Code (ECC) and End-to-End (E2E) data protection to ensure data integrity and prevent data loss in case of unexpected power failure or other errors. The drive also supports advanced wear-leveling algorithms which distribute writes evenly across the drive to prevent overuse of certain blocks and prolong the lifespan of the drive.
This SSD drive has high endurance, meaning it can handle heavy workloads for a long period of time and provide long-term reliability. Additionally, it comes with a high MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) rating, which is a measure of the expected reliability of a device. This SSD drive also provides data encryption support to provide secure data storage and increase data security for the datacenter.
It has Dual Ports X2 design which allows for increased data availability and redundancy. This feature allows for host systems to be able to access the SSD drive even if one of the ports fails, providing an added layer of protection against data loss and downtime in case of a failure.
The Samsung MZ-QL27T60 PM9A3 SSD is a U.2 form factor drive, which is a type of small form factor drive that is designed to be used in servers and other data center devices. It uses a PCI Express (PCI-E) interface and is compatible with servers and motherboards that have a U.2 or NVMe PCI-E slot. It is also compatible with a wide range of operating systems such as Windows, Linux, and various versions of UNIX.
It also support Dual Ports X2 which allows for increased data availability and redundancy. This feature is useful for applications that require high availability and can be used in conjunction with features such as RAID or other data redundancy technologies to provide an added layer of protection against data loss and downtime in case of a failure.
It's also compatible with enterprise-grade data center software and hardware management solutions such as vSphere, vCenter, and OpenManage for monitoring, reporting, and troubleshooting, allowing for easy integration and management into existing datacenter infrastructure.

Enterprise Functionality and Compatibility
- The Samsung PM9A3 NVMe SSD supports PCI Express Gen 4, breaking through the read performance bottleneck experienced by SSDs that only support PCI Express Gen 3, and delivering up to 900k IOPS of random read performance. With the PM9A3, I/O operations benefit from hardware acceleration, which improves performance, while containing power consumption.
- Random write performance of up to 200k IOPS is more than three times as fast as the previous generation of mainstream Samsung NVMe SSDs.
- To meet the demand for high-utilization, high-duty cycle data centers, the PM9A3 SSD utilizes firmware which prioritizes quality of service (QoS) for sustained random workloads, to keep all virtual machines and containers running quickly and smoothly.
- The firmware is optimized for always-on, always-busy workloads ready to respond quickly to incoming work requests.Consistent latency on mixed read/write workloads is enhanced by the ability to suspend flash erase and program operations, in order to prioritize incoming read operations.
- Best of all, Samsung PM9A3 delivers these high performance SSD features to the mainstream cost points, comparable to SATA SSDs, and with the ability to support high-volume cloud datacenter deployments.
- Samsungs PM9A3 SSD has the power efficiency and cost effectiveness for large scale cloud datacenter deployment, but delivers features usually reserved for high-end enterprise NVMe SSDs.
- Samsungs PM9A3 SSD keeps your private data confidential, with encryption via a hardware based AES-XTS 256-bit encryption engine, and management via the TCG Opal 2.0 standard. The new secure boot feature cryptographically verifies the integrity of every firmware images RSA 3072 digital signature prior to execution, helping defend against advanced security threats that target device firmware.
- Samsungs PM9A3 SSD supports out-of-band drive management through NVMe Basic Management Command over SMBus. This enterprise functionality allows board management controllers to inventory and provision SSDs without operation system dependencies.
- Samsungs PM9A3 SSD includes enterprise power loss protection (PLP).
- During normal power-off periods, the host server allocates time to preserve data integrity by transmitting a standby command to each device. In the event of an unexpected power loss, though, the cached data in a storage devices internal DRAM buffers can be lost.
- This can occur with unexpected power outages, or when users unplug devices from the system. However, the Samsung PM9A3 SSD has been designed to prevent data loss resulting from unexpected power shutdowns with its PLP architecture.
- Upon detection of a failure, the SSD immediately uses the stored energy from its PLP capacitors to provide enough time to transfer the cached data in DRAM to the flash memory, ensuring no loss of data.
