SanDisk Beefs Up CloudSpeed SSD Line

Making the most of Interop Las Vegas and Cloud Connect IT Conference and Expo, SanDisk announcing on Monday four new solutions in its CloudSpeed Serial ATA (SATA) line. The new products are: CloudSpeed Extreme, CloudSpeed Ultra, CloudSpeed Ascend and CloudSpeed Eco Solid State Drives (SSDs).

The four new CloudSpeed SSDs have one thing in common: a goal to drive business-critical performance for mixed-use, read and write-intensive application workloads common to enterprise data centers and cloud computing environments. SanDisk is combining its flash management Guardian Technology platform with memory technology to deliver 10 full drive writes per day, 19 nanometer-based enterprise SATA SSDs that promise longer-lasting drive operation.

EUOrganizations in every industry are turning to SSDs to meet the challenges faced by growing volumes of data,EU said John Scaramuzzo, senior vice president and general manager of Enterprise Storage Solutions at SanDisk.

Big Data Speed

Scaramuzzo is convinced the CloudSpeed SATA SSD product family is the answer. One thing is certain, data is growing at breakneck speed. According to Science Daily, about 90 percent of the worldEUs data has been generated within the last two years. That thrusts enterprises into the era of big data whether they planned to enter or not -- and it also demands new solutions.

ItEUs no secret that hard disk drive-based data centers built on yesterdayEUs technologies are feeling the strain of rising performance demands. Traditional data centers simply werenEUt built with the required throughput, plus they are large power consumers and not as reliable as SSDs. Organizations are moving quickly to structure data centers that can handle this era of big data.

"We are only at the early stages of becoming a data-driven society that wants instantaneous access to our information,EU said Jeff...
