The challenges for predictable performance and increased storage capacity are ever present in today’s data centers. Managers are tasked to satisfy demand without new IT capital investment or the cost of increasing floor space. Enterprise SSDs provide substantial performance and footprint benefits over traditional HDDs. This enables IT service providers to replace up to 10 HDDs with a single SSD creating a more efficient and reliable network while reducing capital expenditures, space and energy consumption. Lightning SSDs rank among the most competitive solutions in the industry, offering high I/O sustained performance with a history of successful implementations into existing IT infrastructures.
Lightning Write-Intensive SSDs
Since not all data centers are created equal, the key to achieving increased data and system performance is in understanding the specific application workload. Lightning Write-Intensive SSDs are optimized for data management and endurance of highspeed storage and server environments with a 50/50 read/write mix. Lightning Write-Intensive SSDs are available in 200GB and 400GB2 SLC capacities and deliver random read/write performance up to 118K/33K IOPS and sequential read/write data transfer rates of up to 450/250 MB/s.
Lightning Mixed-Use SSDs
Mixed-Use SSDs offer solid I/O cost-to-performance benefits where quick access to data is vital with a 70/30 read/write mix. Lightning Mixed-Use SSDs are available in 200GB, 400GB and 800GB2 SLC capacities and deliver random read/write performance up to 100K/11K-16K IOPS and sequential read/write data transfer rates of up to 450/220 MB/s.
Lightning Read-Intensive SSDs
Lightning Read-Intensive SSDs are designed for multiple-user applications that demand low latency read speeds and greater bandwith with a 90/10 read/write mix. Lightning Read-Intensive SSDs are available in 400GB, 800GB and 1.6TB2 MLC capacities and deliver random read/write performance of up to 78K/4K-8K IOPS and sequential data throughput rates of up to 410/140 MB/s.
Lightning SSDs are a cost-effective solution for predictable performance and trusted reliability. Lightning SSDs have been specifically designed for demanding, missioncritical, 24/7 applications.
Solid cost-to-performance benefits for applications that demand low latency read speeds and greater bandwidth.
Based on a parallel processing architecture to deliver tested and proven reliability.
Featuring an I/O pattern designed to support applications with heavy write workloads.
