Lightning Mixed-Use 6 Gb/s SAS SSDs deliver industry-leading sustained performance across a wide range of workloads. Their innovative, intelligent controllers use parallel processing architecture to reliably support demanding, mission-critical, 24/7 applications.
The I/O pattern of Lightning Mixed-Use SSDs is designed especially for workhorse applications with a 70/30 read/write mix, such as online transaction processing (OLTP), financial services, E-commerce and IT infrastructure. Also, Lightning Mixed-Use SAS drives provide the right read/write balance for enterprise productivity services, including virtual desktop infrastructure, email, instant messaging, and collaboration
Consistent design for easy deployment
Lightning Mixed-Use 6 Gb/s SAS Enterprise SSDs have the same firmware binary, controllers, and hardware. They can be qualified for use once and then deployed widely without additional testing. Shorter deployment times reduce the expense and operational complexity of integrating SSDs into enterprise data centers.
Intensive error correction for in-flight data
Lightning SSDs check errors in-flight and correct read disturb errors without impacting performance. They also support systems with native T10 Data Integrity Field (DIF) for protection against data-write errors.
Superior reliability reduces total cost of ownership
Using SanDisk's proprietary advanced controller with parallel processing architecture, Lightning SSDs deliver significantly higher performance, improved reliability, and lower failure rates than mechanical spinning hard-disk drives.
Lower data center total cost of ownership
Lightning Mixed-Use 6 Gb/s SAS Enterprise SSDs deliver significant performance increases over comparable HDDs - all in a much smaller footprint and with lower power consumption. This allows enterprise data center managers to meet growing performance demands while staying within power, budget, and space constraints.
