Video on demand (VOD) is everywhere: on computers, connected entertainment (CE) HDTVs, tablets, and even smartphones. And users don't expect just to access video content from virtually any device; they expect to view it instantly in HD quality. For media companies and others delivering VOD, the ability to instantly serve thousands or millions of users simultaneously is critical to competing in a crowded market. SanDisk Lightning™ Read-Intensive 6Gb/s SAS Enterprise Solid State Drives (SSDs) can help VOD providers deliver the video quality and seamless viewing experiences users demand.
In VOD applications, total throughput is typically limited by hard-disk drive (HDD) IOPS rather than processor speeds. This is because HDD capacity has grown while HDD IOPS have remained relatively stagnant. Because of their nearly instantaneous, highly parallel data access, Lightning Read-Intensive SSDs enable VOD providers to use the full power of today's advanced processors and alleviate the I/O bottleneck caused by HDDs. Lightning Read-Intensive drives provide these performance benefits while reducing power and cooling demands and taking up less rack space. With these task-specialized SSDs, media companies can fulfill the "on- demand" part of VOD.
