Organizations continuously look for new ways to use data to drive their decision making. Key to this effort is the concept of data warehousing, in which data is collected from multiple locations within a company and then standardized for easy access by managers, executives, and others with a need for company-wide business intelligence.
While the term "warehouse" connotes a static repository of data, data warehousing requires data to be frequently updated. This necessitates massive data writes during off hours as a warehouse collects data. Data warehousing therefore requires storage solutions that can provide the performance necessary to achieve data collection and consolidation within limited windows of time.
Lightning® Write-Intensive 6Gb/s SAS Enterprise Solid State Drives (SSDs) can accelerate the write-heavy workloads typical of active data warehouses.SanDisk has incorporated an advanced, proprietary controller into Lightning 6Gb/s SAS Enterprise SSDs. This controller uses highly parallel architecture to provide industry-leading sustained performance.
Power and space efficiency are critical in data warehouses, as rapid data proliferation requires built-in room to grow. Lightning SAS SSDs can replace tens or hundreds of HDDs, bringing smaller, more efficient form factors to space and power strapped data centers.
