New Optimus MAX™ SSD Is the First True Replacement for Data Center HDDs
Delivering SAS Features and Performance at a New Level of Affordability
Optimus MAX Leads Refresh of Entire Optimus® 19nm MLC SSD Family.
SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK), a global leader in flash storage solutions, On Friday,announced the Optimus MAX Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) solid state drive (SSD), HP2-K38 the industry’s first 4TB1 SAS SSD. The Optimus MAX SSD achieves a capacity point that far outpaces today’s highest-capacity 2.5” 10K and 15K rpm SAS hard-disk drives (HDDs), making it the first true replacement for legacy mission-critical data center SAS HDDs. Most notably, the Optimus MAX SSD delivers SAS performance and functionality at a breakthrough price point that was previously only available in SATA-based SSDs.
The Optimus MAX SSD tops the newly refreshed Optimus® SAS SSD family and also joins the company’s newly announced Lightning® Gen. II 12Gb/s SAS SSDs, extending SanDisk’s entire SAS portfolio to cover the performance, capacity and endurance needs of a wide array of enterprise applications.
Optimus® and Optimus® Ultra+ SSDs as the Optimus Ascend™ and Optimus Extreme™ SSDs, respectively. Tracking to each drives’ endurance capabilities, the new Optimus SSD product family includes:
-Optimus MAX™ SSD (1-3 full DWPD)2
-Optimus Eco™ SSDs (1-3 full DWPD)2
-Optimus Ascend™ SSDs (10 full DWPD)2
-Optimus Ultra™ SSDs (25 full DWPD)2, and
-Optimus Extreme™ SSDs (45 full DWPD)2
SanDisk in its press realse added that “Customers have been looking for a way to transition their data centers from HDDs to NAND flash, but have been forced to decide between cost and performance, or give up important functionality,” said John Scaramuzzo, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Enterprise Storage Solutions at SanDisk.
The Optimus MAX eliminates the need for compromises. We believe that the Optimus MAX will be a disruptive force within the storage industry, catalyzing many organizations to make the switch from their HDD-prominent data center infrastructures to SSDs.
Both the Optimus Max SSD and the HP2-T24 updated Lightning Gen. II SSD family of drives from SanDisk are expected to be available by the Q3 this year.Keep checking the space for More information.
