Today, SanDisk® expanded its portfolio of enterprise storage solutions with the new Lightning® PCI Express (PCIe) Solid State Accelerator (SSA) cards. The PCIe SSAs combine SanDisk’s proven enterprise SSD technology and its NAND Flash leadership to provide OEMs and system integrators with an ideal solution for accelerating enterprise applications in data centers, server farms and cloud computing environments.
SanDisk PCIe SSAs deliver low latency, low maximum response time during peak periods using our advanced controller to manage data protection and I/O functions with little impact on the CPU and without adding costly DRAM. This type of performance is ideal for a wide range of businesses, including financial institutions analyzing and processing massive amounts of information around the clock; to social media and website providers whose customers demand a nearly instant response with every click of a mouse; to media content creators editing high-definition videos.
We’re really excited about offering PCIe solutions to the enterprise market, so stay tuned for more good news from SanDisk in this area in the future.
