4TB of Capacity for Scalability and Faster Business Time-to-Results
The Optimus MAX 4TB SSD is the industry’s first SAS SSD to deliver high-density data storage and efficient data throughput for enterprise, cloud and virtualized data centers, surpassing all maximum capacity SAS SSDs and SAS HDDs on the market today. This 4TB SSD provides SAS performance at the cost of SATA SSD-like prices and enables organization to transition to a leaner infrastructure model. The Optimus MAX SSD is designed for read-intensive applications such as data warehousing, media streaming, web servers, video on demand (VOD), and web-based applications, with a typical workload comprised of a 90/10 read/write mix.
The Optimus MAX SSD utilizes the latest 19nm eMLC NAND flash technology combined with the innovative Guardian Technology™ Platform to deliver high performance, superior reliability and enhanced endurance for maximum application scalability and total cost of ownership (TCO) savings.
Data Warehousing and Databases
Database workloads require fast and accurate writes to disk, as well as easy access to the stored data. The Optimus MAX 4TB SAS SSD supports 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.
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.
