Join SanDisk® in Stand #NO804 in the Nangang Exibition Hall   

We are counting down the days until we get to return to Taipei, Taiwan, for Computex 2015 and showcase our industry-leading portfolio of Application Acceleration solutions. Here’s a small taste of some of the data center solutions you’ll find in our booth alongside SanDisk® client and retail solutions:

Extreme Scaling for Hyperscale: CloudSpeed Eco™ Gen. II 2TB SATA SSD

Announced at Computex: CloudSpeed Eco™ Gen. II SATA SSD with up to 2TB of capacity and 530 megabytes per second of sustained throughput. Designed HyperScale deployments, the CloudSpeed Eco Gen. II is optimized for read-Intensive workloads like:

  • Social Networking, Web Servers
  • Content Repositories
  • Media Streaming
  • Data Warehousing
  • Web-based Applications
  • Video On Demand (VoD)

At up to 2TB, the CloudSpeed Eco Gen. II SATA SSD is the largest capacity SATA SSD in its class. Service providers can aggregate dozens, or hundreds, of these SSDs to achieve the type of extreme scalability and performance required for SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS features and functionality and it is already being evaluated by the world’s largest internet data centers.

Massive Capacity at Lower Cost than HDDs: Optimus MAX™ 4TB SAS SSD

Optimus MAX™ 4TB SAS SSD

For those who are looking for even more capacity, be sure to check out the massive Optimus MAX™ 4TB SAS SSD. The Optimus MAX is the highest capacity SSD on the market. It is the industry’s first to reach 4TB, delivering high-density data storage and efficient data throughput for enterprise, cloud and virtualized data centers.

The Optimus MAX is a true game-changer. It provides the performance of SAS yet at the cost of SATA SSD-like prices, and in fact, at a lower cost than hard drives (HDDs). If you check out the latest Lenovo Systemx configuration tool, you will find that it is now lower on a dollar per gigabyte basis than 15K SAS 6Gbs HDDs! It also enables data centers using 15K RPM SAS HDDs to continue using their same SAS drivers and connections and bypass converting to SATA when adopting SSDs.

The Power of Better Together: Fusion ioMemory™ SX350

Fusion ioMemory™ SX350

Make sure to also check out the ultimate fusion: Fusion ioMemory and SanDisk NAND. The new Fusion ioMemory™ SX350 is the first product benefiting from this “fusion”. The SX350 combines the proven architecture, performance and compatibility of Fusion-io with the trusted NAND flash from SanDisk. Through this synergy, we are able to offer higher performance, up to 2.4 times, and as much as 61% lower list pricing than the previous generation!

In comparison to the ioDrive 2 the SX350 delivers:

  • 2x the capacity for greater storage
  • 2x random read performance for increased database access
  • 2x the throughput at 2.7 GB/s sequential reads for better price/performance

Ultra Low Latency: ULLtraDIMM™ SSD

ULLtraDIMM

Like last year, we will also showcase the exciting SanDisk ULLtraDIMM™ SSD which connects flash storage to the memory channel via standard DIMM slots, in order to close the gap between storage devices and system memory. The ULLtraDIMM can achieve less than five microseconds write latency at the DIMM level, enabling a new generation of software requiring ultra-low latency.

  • First enterprise-class SSD that utilizes the memory bus
  • ULLtraDIMM takes advantage of the ultra-fast memory bus lanes
  • Lowest write latency SSD on the market
  • Parallel architecture allows high IOPS and bandwidth performance

SanDisk Data Center Partner Demos

Make sure to stop by our key partner’s booths, Super Micro Computer Inc. and Quanta Cloud Technology Inc. where we will be demoing our joint solutions:

Super Micro Computer, Inc. – Stand #M0120 in the Nangang Exibition Hall
Best In Class Server And Storage Solutions

See how Super Micro Computer and SanDisk partner together to provide best in class server and storage solutions featuring the Fusion ioMemory Application Accelerators, Optimus MAX 4TB SSD and ULLLtraDIMM SSD.

Quanta Cloud Technology Inc. – Stand # T101D in the TICC Hall
The Ultimate All-Flash System For Big Data

Visit the Quanta booth and see the InfiniFlash™ System from SanDisk. The InfiniFlash system is a new storage platform offering massive capacity and high density to address the demands of capacity workloads at scale without compromise.

  • 512 Terabytes of Flash in only 3U
  • Up to 1 Million IOPS & Less than 1ms Latency
  • Connect Up to 8 Servers
  • And It’s Simple

See you in Taipei at Computex 2015!
