Computing at top speed. Maximum performance and bandwidth for hyperscale data centers and highly-virtualized environments
Lightning Gen. II SAS SSDs feature 12Gb/s interface--double the bandwidth of traditional SATA and SAS drives— and an innovative parallel processing architecture to provide both the peak and sustained performance for transaction processing, media editing and delivery, boot storms, e-commerce and growing numbers of simultaneous users. Lightning SSDs deliver up to 199K/115K1 random read/write IOPS, the highest SAS performance in the industry.
SanDisk® is involved in every aspect of developing SSDs, from producing the innovative NAND flash memory inside our SSDs, to optimizing the energy consumption and reliability of drives for hyperscale environments. We also develop software and firmware that leverages the unique characteristics of flash. Our comprehensive approach and attention to detail allows us to provide you with a five-year warranty2 along with leading performance.
HDD-based video servers are now seriously limiting the scalability and potential of video surveillance, causing risks for both video surveillance companies, and those that they serve. Utilizing flash storage as primary storage represents a new way forward. SanDisk flash storage enables the future demands of organizations with uncompromising video surveillance requirements, including higher quality and resolution, more cameras, no data loss, longer retention periods, and real-time analytics.
Lightning Eco Gen. II SAS SSDs offer solid I/O cost to performance benefits with low latency data access for high quality of service (QoS).
Lightning Ascend Gen. II SAS SSDs offer superior reliability with high speed data transfer rates where quick access to data is essential.
Lightning Ultra Gen. II SAS SSDs offer industry-leading predictable performance with high availability for the analysis of large data sets.
