SanDisk Innovations: Enhanced Endurance with the Guardian Technology Platform

Enhanced Endurance with the Guardian Technology™ Platform

SanDisk’s Guardian Technology Platform ™ is delivered in the firmware of a flash solid-state drive (SSD). It improves the longevity of use for an SSD by better managing the use of bits inside the multi-level-cell (MLC) SSD drive. As a result, the longevity, also known as endurance, of the SSD is lengthened— and the MLC flash storage is enabled to compare favorably against more expensive Single Level Cell (SLC) flash storage, as well as longstanding hard disk drive (HDD) technology. This ensures that SanDisk’s MLC-based SSDs are enterprise-class deployments. The Guardian Technology Platform developed by SanDisk enhances the flash chip endurance of the SSD, providing customers with a cost-effective, long lasting storage solution. The Guardian Technology Platform is currently available for SanDisk’s ULLtraDIMM DDR3 SSDs, Optimus SAS SSDs and its CloudSpeed SATA SSDs. This range of products allows the Guardian Technology Platform to be adopted across computing tiers within the data center.

Three key technology capabilities are supported in the Guardian Technology Platform solution: FlashGuard™ Technology for flash management; DataGuard™ Technology for full data-path protection; and EverGuard™ Technology for preventing data loss during outages (e.g. power outages, network outages, server system outages). When the Guardian Technology Platform is deployed on SSDs, it supports several important business advantages for customers: data protection, longer useful product life, and business continuity.
