The Storage Magazine ‘Storries’ Awards are the UK’s leading storage industry awards issued by Storage Magazine. This year, SanDisk® achieved great success at the awards, racking up a total of 11 shortlists, and winning the prestigious Reader’s Choice – Best Buy Award for the ULLtraDIMM SSD. The sheer scale of this award success is a reflection of our growth in the enterprise storage market over the past year.
The Reader’s Choice – Best Buy Award is of particular significance as it is based solely on reader votes and not a judging panel. This win signifies not only that the ULLtraDIMM is a truly revolutionary product, but also the excitement in the industry regarding the potential for the ULLtraDIMM and the way it can transform enterprise storage. It also suggests that the storage industry is beginning to change and that our customers are looking at purchases in line with the total cost of ownership and performance linked to endurance.
The ULLtraDIMM SSD was launched at the end of last year. It connects flash storage to the memory channel via standard DIMM slots and can achieve less than five microseconds write latency at the DIMM level; enabling a new generation of software requiring ultra-low latency. The addition of flash technology on the DRAM memory channel expands the growing penetration of flash storage technology in enterprise data centers, and complements SanDisk’s existing flash-based server hardware and software storage solutions.
The Storage Magazine ‘Storries’ Awards took place at the Grand Connaught Rooms on Thursday 12th June, with 430 of the industries finest in attendance, including our very own SanDisk EMEA team. The readers of Storage Magazine and the judging panel rewarded outstanding products, services and people.
We would like to thank all of our customers, colleagues and contacts for your continued support and for voting for us in these prestigious awards!
