Enterprise-Class Performance with the Right Capabilities at a Competitive Price
SanDisk’s CloudSpeed Ascend™ SSDs target read-intensive application workloads, such as file servers, Web-based applications, and virtual tape libraries (VTL). Along with SanDisk’s Guardian Technology™ platform and the latest generation of consumer multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash technology, they deliver all the features expected from an enterprise-class SSD—at a great value.
Flash-based storage accelerates access to files, replacing slower hard disk-drive (HDD) technology. When used as cache memory, solid state drives (SSDs) accelerate data retrieval for fast and reliable application performance.
Web-based applications are applications that leverage the Web for connectivity to end-users—typified by enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), end-to-end supply chain management, and logistics/distribution. All of these are end-to-end applications—enabled by the Web—that touch multiple business units within an enterprise, resulting in more efficient business processes. In some cases, as with supply-chain applications, these applications are also accessed by organizations outside the enterprise, such as business partners that support supply-chain management. SanDisk data center SSDs allow organizations to optimize processing speed to achieve high levels of storage capacity, with improved caching and faster Internet functionality.
Virtual Tape Libraries (VTL)
SSDs support virtual tape libraries (VTL), which store archived data for long periods of time for reference, regulatory, and compliance purposes. SSDs support efficient data transfer into and out of the virtual tape library for faster processing and faster results, with very low power and cooling requirements.
