The Optimus MAX 4TB**1 GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes. Actual user capacity less. SSD is the industry’s first SAS SSD to deliver high-density data storage and efficient data throughput for enterprise, cloud and virtualized data centers, surpassing all maximum capacity SAS SSDs and SAS HDDs on the market today. This 4TB SSD provides SAS performance at the cost of SATA SSD-like prices and enables organization to transition to a leaner infrastructure model. The Optimus MAX SSD is designed for read-intensive applications such as data warehousing, media streaming, web servers, video on demand (VOD), and web-based applications, with a typical workload comprised of a 90/10 read/write mix.
The Optimus MAX SSD utilizes the latest 19nm eMLC NAND flash technology combined with the innovative Guardian Technology™ Platform to deliver high performance, superior reliability and enhanced endurance for maximum application scalability and total cost of ownership (TCO) savings.
Database workloads require fast and accurate writes to disk, as well as easy access to the stored data. The Optimus MAX 4TB SAS SSD supports database workloads, even in virtualized computing environments. This is important because many IT organizations are consolidating database workloads to run on fewer physical servers, resulting in more efficient infrastructures that host business workloads in less data center space and require less power and cooling. By hosting more virtual machines (VMs) per physical server, customers reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and increase return on investment (ROI) for new server deployments that have SSDs, compared to hard-disk (HDD) deployments.
Flash storage works with large datasets that are generated for movies, videos, and music, and are distributed via broadcast and the Internet. These products must support high data transfer rates, faster animation rendering, and image-painting. This enhances performance with near-real-time results, improving the customer experience for those viewing the content.
Video on Demand (VOD) is accessed by PCs, smartphones, and entertainment HD-TVs or consoles. It allows users to access video from virtually any device instantly; and it gives media companies the ability to serve thousands of users simultaneously.

In addition to the Optimus MAX™ 4TB SAS SSD, what other products comprise the Optimus® SAS SSD product family?The Optimus product family of SAS SSDs is comprised of four eMulti-Level Cell (eMLC) products: Optimus Eco™ SAS SSDs, Optimus Ascend™ SAS SSDs, Optimus Ultra™ SAS SSDs, and Optimus Extreme™ SAS SSDs. Each product is designed with a combination of high-performance, capacity, endurance, and reliability. The Optimus Eco SAS SSD is designed for mixed-use and read-intensive application workloads. The Optimus Ascend SAS SSD is designed for mixed-use application workloads with higher endurance than the Optimus Eco. The Optimus Ultra SAS SSD and Optimus Extreme SAS SSDs are designed for write intensive application workloads also at different endurance levels with the latter being the highest.
What are the specific differences among the Optimus SAS SSD products?Each product is unique related to their endurance range:
What application workload areas would be suited for each member of the Optimus product family of SAS SSDs?That would depend on the specific application workload and the read/write ratio required for best performance. Specific application areas are described below by product family member:
