SanDisk has released its new CloudSpeed Ultra Gen. II SATA SSD for cloud service provider (CSP) and software-defined storage (SDS) vendor environments, offering up to 1.6TB of usable capacity, CloudSpeed Ultra Gen.
II SATA SSD provides the storage performance and density needed for mixed-use, latency-sensitive transactional workloads—such as e-commerce and collaborative online services announced the press release.
Expanding on SanDisk’s existing portfolio of cloud-focused flash solutions, CloudSpeed Ultra Gen. II delivers unmatched price/performance leadership at a little over $0.04 per IOPS versus $3.50 per IOPS typically inherent with conventional SATA HDDs. Additionally, CloudSpeed Ultra Gen. II serves up to 32,000 4K write IOPS with 530MB/sec throughput, and an 80 microseconds random read write latency – delivering 99.9 percent quality of service (QoS).
“With CloudSpeed Ultra Gen. II, CSPand SDS companies can provide an exceptional customer experience, while reducing administrative overhead along with the number of servers and software licenses needed to support transaction and analytical databases,” said John Scaramuzzo, senior vice president and general manager, Enterprise Storage Solutions, SanDisk.
CloudSpeed Ultra Gen. II SSD will be available for select CSP and SDS customers in August and on a staggered channel release through the Enterprise Channel Partner program.
