Samsung Electronics announced yesterday that three new enterprise SSDs join its existing lineup, all using the 3D V-NAND technology the company has just moved to the mass production stage. According to the official blog post that brings the news, these drives have been designed for OEMs and use Samsung's 3-bit MLC V-NAND flash memory chips, "while providing outstanding performance and reliability, as well as high capacities."
