I have a Samsung PM983 2.5" SSD drive but I have never seen a connector like this.
Would like to use it but unsure of what I need to connect.
Can anyone assist?

It's a U.2 interface, formerly known as SFF-8639.
U.2 can be used for SATA Express, SAS, or Enterprise PCIe. As far as I can see, the 2.5" U.2 version of the Samsung PM983 is only available as PCIe. In this case, it'd be possible to adapt to M.2 (NVMe only) or a PCIe x4 card.
SAS (serial attached SCSI) in a form factor partially compatible with SATA
p.s. it is partially compatible w/ SATA in a sense that a SAS host can run a SATA disk, but not the other way round.
Thank you for your interest in this question.
