CloudSpeed Ultra™ SSDs are designed specifically for mixed-use application workloads such as Financial Transactions, E-Commerce and Email/Messaging. CloudSpeed SSDs use SanDisk’s Guardian Technology™ platform to increase endurance up to 5x higher than other multi-level cell (MLC) SSDs, providing server and database computing customers with a reliable alternative to hard disk drives at a competitive cost.
Email and messaging have become essential pieces of official “records” for businesses and organizations. They must be accurately maintained for legal and compliance purposes. In everyday business, emails are the “glue” of daily business, allowing teams in many locations to collaborate on work projects—and achieve business goals together. Flash storage delivers high-volume email updates safely and securely to their destinations, supporting the daily flow of business processes.
Financial services applications primarily involve transactional services, data analytics, and market simulations. Given the speed at which markets move and stock prices change, each of these applications is time-sensitive, and application performance can affect the outcome of business decisions that are based on transactional data.
SanDisk data center storage solutions speed the processing and support scale-up of applications as demand grows—which makes SSDs an important ingredient in improving the performance of financial applications.
E-Commerce applications provide faster, more efficient interchanges of data between groups, such as business to business (B to B), and business to consumer (B to C). The capabilities of email, to provide direct and quick communications, are now blending with aspects of social media, providing immediacy, quick response times, and ongoing communication.

What happens to the data on the SSD if the power is turned off? The CloudSpeed Ultra™ SATA SSD retains the data just as an HDD would.
Is a special enclosure required for the CloudSpeed Ultra SATA SSD? The CloudSpeed Ultra SSD is compatible with any industry standard enclosure that supports a 2.5 inch form factor and SATA interface.
Is any special device driver software required for the CloudSpeed Ultra SSD? The CloudSpeed Ultra SATA SSD requires no special device driver software.
Can the CloudSpeed Ultra SSD be mixed with HDDs or other types of SDDs in the same enclosure? Just as with HDDs, mixing of disk drives with different workload profiles will render unpredictable results. Therefore mixing of devices is not recommended.
Do CloudSpeed Ultra SATA SSDs really increase the performance of servers? Yes, CloudSpeed Ultra SSDs can increase a server’s performance by reducing a server’s I/O wait time to get data for processing. SAS HDDs have an average wait time of half a disk revolution before the read heads are positioned over the desired data. CloudSpeed Ultra SSDs have no moving parts, so data is accessed much faster thus reducing server wait time.
Can CloudSpeed Ultra SSDs greatly consolidate/reduce storage footprint? Yes. With HDDs performance is directly related to spindle count, so the more HDD spindles, the greater the performance. Traditionally, in the HDD environment short stroking has been used to obtain the level of performance required – short stroking is the technique of greatly over-provisioning HDD spindles to obtain a desired performance level while only requiring a fraction of the over-provisioned storage capacity.
