Me Too ... So far ...Samsung. I'm very pleased with the performance of my Samsung 850 Evo.
I have a client who used Samsung 850 SSDs thinking all SSDs are the same. They found out quickly that is not the case. The drives we're talking about here are fine for home use. But they don't perform well in Enterprise applications. The client found out what the proverbial write cliff is for SSDs. In addition, they were burning up the Samsung SSDs at an alarming rate. They did an eval of other SSDs and settled on Micron.Me Too ... So far ...
I'm curious about the endurance ratings ....
Samsung 850 EVO 250GB = 75 TBW
Samsung 850 Pro 256GB = 150TBW
Samsung 860 EVO 250GB = 150TBW
Samsung 860 EVO Pro 250GB = 300TBW
HPS700 250GB = 295TBW
WD Blue 250GB = 500TBW
Is that the same as Intel's Optane ?Actually, the fastest storage out there is the latest tech utilizing the memory bus called 3D Xpoint. This is non volatile storage which plugs into a memory stick socket. Super expensive for the capacity versus cost but is really intended for the Enterprise/Server market.
Optane from what I've read is a derivation of 3D Xpoint. From what I've seen, the form factors for Optane are still in the current M.2/2.5 form factors. I didn't put much energy in studying Optane as the server brand I work with extensively did not support Optane at the time. Not sure if they do now since I've moved on to a new employer.Is that the same as Intel's Optane ?
