Maximize Application Speed with Bandwidth for the Most Cost-effective I/O Performance
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). Available in 19nm eMLC, Lightning Eco SSDs are designed for read-intensive applications such as data warehousing, media streaming, video on demand (VOD), web-based applications, virtual tape libraries (VTL) and file servers with a heavy read workload comprised of a 90/10 read/write mix.
This next generation Lightning ® SSD offers a feature-rich robust design combined with SanDisk’s innovative parallel processing architecture to deliver full data path protection (supports T10-DIF), temperature based power control, SED instant secure erase, an MTBF of 2.5 million hours and power fail protection.
Data Warehousing and Databases
Database workloads require fast and accurate writes to disk, as well as easy access to the stored data. Lightning Eco Gen. II SAS SSDs support database workloads, even in virtualized computing environments. This is important because many IT organizations are consolidating database workloads to run on fewer physical servers, resulting in more efficient infrastructures that host business workloads in less data center space and require less power and cooling. By hosting more virtual machines (VMs) per physical server, customers reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and increase return on investment (ROI) for new server deployments that have SSDs, compared to hard-disk (HDD) deployments.
Front-End Web Servers
Flash storage accelerates the Internet traffic that enters the data center for processing and helps to overcome I/O bottlenecks. In addition to accelerating Web traffic for enterprise data centers, SSDs support fast processing by cloud service providers.
Flash storage works with large datasets that are generated for movies, videos, and music, and are distributed via broadcast and the Internet. These products must support high data transfer rates, faster animation rendering, and image-painting. This enhances performance with near-real-time results, improving the customer experience for those viewing the content.
Video on Demand (VOD)
Video on Demand (VOD) is accessed by PCs , smartphones, and entertainment HD-TVs or consoles. It allows users to access video from virtually any device instantly; and it gives media companies the ability to serve thousands of users simultaneously.
