Sandisk aims disk at cloud infrastructure
Sandisk said it has introduced a solid state disk (SSD) specifically aimed at cloud service providers (CSPs) and software defined storage vendors.
The Cloudspeed Ultra Gen II SSD has up to 1.6TB of capacity and serves up to 32,000 4K write IOPS with 530MB/sec throughputs and also has 80 microseconds random read write latency.
John Scaramuzzo, senior VP of enterprise sales at Sandisk said that transaction based applications put strain on cloud service providers to make datacentre units with high performance.
CSPs have typically aggregated hard drives with caching to cope with I/O intensive use but that needs manual administration.
Sandisk’s SSD is designed to avoid so-called server sprawl. The company will make the units available this month and deliver it through its enterprise channel partner programme.
Sandisk gave no clue as to what units will cost, but said it estimated $0.04 per IOPS compared to a typical $3.50 per IOPS on traditional platforms.
