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 capacities
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 enterprise-class reliability.
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.
