SanDisk today announced its new CloudSpeed Ultra Gen. II SATA SSD for cloud service provider (CSP) and software-defined storage (SDS) vendor environments.
Offering up to 1.6TB of usable capacity, CloudSpeed Ultra Gen. II SATA SSD provides the storage performance and density needed for mixed-use, latency-sensitive transactional workloads. The SSD delivers high price/performance leadership at a little over $0.04 per IOPS versus $3.50 per IOPS typically inherent with conventional SATA HDDs. Additionally, CloudSpeed Ultra Gen. II serves up to 32,000 4K write IOPS with 530MB/sec throughput, and an 80 microseconds random read write latency - delivering 99.9 percent quality of service (QoS).
As with all CloudSpeed SSDs, CloudSpeed Ultra Gen. II SSD includes SanDisk?s Guardian Technology Platform, which works to provide a combination of error correction and detection technology, full data path protection and data fail recovery. CloudSpeed Ultra Gen. II SSD also comes with a limited five year warranty.
