FlashSoft Software:Accelerate Your Servers
Lightning PCIe Enterprise Solid State Accelerators (SSAs)
alleviates I/O bottlenecks to provide cost-effective performance
acceleration for workstations, data centers, cloud computing
environments, and I/O-intensive server applications. These SSAs
lower data latency and deliver predictable performance, making them
ideal solutions for data centers and small to medium businesses.
Lightning PCIe Enterprise SSAs feature reliable, patented SanDisk
flash memory on plug-and-play PCIe cards and are available in
200GB**1 gigabyte (GB) = 1 billion bytes.
Some capacity not available for data storage. and
400GB Gen 2.0 (x4) capacities.
With Lightning SSAs, your servers can meet and exceed the needs
of demanding 24/7 enterprise and cloud computing applications, such
as online transaction processing (OLTP), video on demand (VOD),
CAD/CAE, and social media. When paired with FlashSoft data caching
software, Lightning PCIe SSAs enable servers to support workloads
up to three times greater.
Once it's installed directly into the server tier, the Lightning
PCIe SSA offers low latency and provides fast, predictable response
times. By alleviating I/O bottlenecks and adding PCIe bandwidth,
the SSA enables faster workload transactions and increases overall
systems savings. Additional speed comes from placing the SSA
directly inside the server or workstation, preventing RAID
controller delays that would occur on the storage tier.
SanDisk's innovative controller handles essential I/O functions
and data requests locally, freeing the CPU for increased
application processing. The efficient design of Lightning PCIes
also eliminates the need for additional DRAM.
When used in combination with FlashSoft data caching software,
Lightning SSAs can dramatically increase server performance with
your existing processing and storage infrastructure.
Lightning PCIe SSAs are equipped with industry-standard drivers
that are already integrated into major Windows®, Linux, and VMware®
ESX environments--no additional system reconfiguration or software
is required. These add-in cards are designed to fit into X4 or
greater PCIe slots and are available in 200GB and 400GB
SanDisk Enterprise SSAs provide customers with predictable and
sustained performance. Lightning PCIe SSAs are designed for
endurance, no matter how demanding workloads may be or how often
they may change. These SSAs support 10 full writes per day and
offer unlimited read endurance.
Lightning PCIe SSAs contain the same high-quality flash memory
used in SanDisk solid state drives (SSDs). These SSAs use SanDisk's
proprietary parallel processing architecture, which provides
customers with endurance, consistent performance, and
Built-in data protection in Lightning SSAs enhances reliability.
Background patrol reads correct errors caused by program and read
disturbs, while capacitor backed cache (CBC) makes error correction
transparent to the host with no performance impact.
Many of today's data-intensive activities demand the increased
storage performance offered by Lightning SSAs. In media, they
accelerate video on demand (VOD) and animation rendering. In
finance, they handle online transaction processing (OLTP). And in
the general business world, they enhance the performance of web
servers, databases, search indexing, and cloud computing.
