Introduction

The Lenovo PM863 Enterprise Entry SATA solid-state drives (SSDs) in capacities of 120 GB, 240 GB, 480 GB, and 960 GB are next-generation general-purpose SSDs for System x and ThinkServer based on the Samsung PM863 platform. They are engineered for greater performance and endurance in a cost-effective design, and to support a broader set of workloads. These SSDs are available both as 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch form factor drives.

Did you know?

Lenovo Enterprise Entry SSDs are suitable for read-intensive and general-purpose data center workloads. Overall, these SSDs provide outstanding IOPS/watt and cost/IOPS for enterprise solutions and are an excellent choice for applications such as web serving, hyperscale cloud, content delivery, caching, databases, and analytics.

Unlike client drives, these SSDs are equipped with a robust suite of enterprise features, including Self-monitoring, analysis, and reporting technology (SMART) attributes and hot-plug support. They also use enterprise data path protection to verify data to and from NAND at every possible location and protect the integrity of the data. The NAND flash in these SSDs is screened and then tested specifically for enterprise customer use.

Features

The Enterprise Entry SATA SSDs have the following features:

  • Low cost, read-intensive SSD from Samsung
  • 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch industry standard form factor with hot-swap tray
  • 6 Gbps SATA interface
  • Advanced ECC Engine and End-to-End Data Protection
  • Samsung 32 layer V-NAND stacks the vertical NAND layers in three dimensions, solving the cell-to-cell interference that causes data corruption in planar NAND.
  • Protect data integrity from unexpected power loss with Samsung's advanced power-loss protection architecture
  • Supports Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T).
  • Dynamic Thermal Guard Protection protects the SSD from overheating by automatically controlling the speed of the CPU relative to its core temperature

Enterprise Entry SSDs and Enterprise SSDs have similar read and write IOPS performance, but the key difference between them is their endurance (or lifetime) (that is, how long they can perform write operations because SSDs have a finite number of program/erase (P/E) cycles). Enterprise Entry SSDs have a better cost/IOPS ratio but lower endurance compared to Enterprise SSDs. SSD write endurance is typically measured by the number of program/erase (P/E) cycles that the drive incurs over its lifetime, listed as the total bytes of written data (TBW) in the device specification.

The TBW value assigned to a solid-state device is the total bytes of written data (based on the number of P/E cycles) that a drive can be guaranteed to complete (% of remaining P/E cycles = % of remaining TBW). Reaching this limit does not cause the drive to immediately fail. It simply denotes the maximum number of writes that can be guaranteed. A solid-state device will not fail upon reaching the specified TBW. At some point based on manufacturing variance margin, after surpassing the TBW value, the drive will reach the end-of-life point, at which the drive will go into a read-only mode.

Because of such behavior by Enterprise Entry solid-state drives, careful planning must be done to use them only in read-intensive or mixed up to 70% read/30% write environments to ensure that the TBW of the drive will not be exceeded before the required life expectancy.

For example, the 480 GB drive has an endurance of 700 TB of total bytes written (TBW). This means that for full operation over five years, write workload must be limited to no more than 384 GB of writes per day, which is equivalent to 0.8 full drive writes per day (DWPD). For the device to last three years, the drive write workload must be limited to no more than 639 GB of writes per day, which is equivalent to 1.3 full drive writes per day.

Warranty

The Enterprise Entry SATA SSDs carry a one-year, customer-replaceable unit (CRU) limited warranty. When the SSDs are installed in a supported server, these drives assume the system’s base warranty and any warranty upgrades.

Solid State Memory cells have an intrinsic, finite number of program/erase cycles that each cell can incur. As a result, each solid state device has a maximum amount of program/erase cycles to which it can be subjected. The warranty for Lenovo solid state drives (SSDs) is limited to drives that have not reached the maximum guaranteed number of program/erase cycles, as documented in the Official Published Specifications for the SSD product. A drive that reaches this limit may fail to operate according to its Specifications.
