Western Digital has acquired SanDisk. Please visit our Western Digital site for the latest Western Digital's products
The next generation of CloudSpeed™ SATA SSDs are designed with a range of endurance and optimized for read-intensive and mixed-use application workloads in enterprise and cloud computing environments. Leveraging SanDisk’s proprietary Guardian Technology™ Platform, tier-one OEM-enterprise firmware, proven power fail technology and the latest generation of 19nm cMLC (Eco model only) and eMLC NAND flash, CloudSpeed SSDs offer all the features expected from an enterpriseclass drive at the right value.
Available in capacities of 100GB-960GB, the CloudSpeed SSD product family features a 6Gb/s SATA interface and provides data transfer rates up to 475/450 MB/s sequential read/write and performance up to 75K/30K IOPS random read/write. CloudSpeed SSDs offer high data integrity by employing a combination of powerful error correction and detection, full data path protection, thermal monitoring, and data fail recovery. These enterprise features enable CloudSpeed SSDs to deliver up to 5x higher endurance than competing client MLC SSDs.
Guardian Technology™ Platform
The product family of CloudSpeed SATA SSDs is powered by SanDisk’s proprietary Guardian Technology Platform, a suite of enterprise features that include FlashGuard™, DataGuard™ and EverGuard™ technologies.
FlashGuard Technology combines Aggregated Flash Management, which treats all flash elements as a single system, and Advanced Signal Processing, which dynamically adjusts flash parameters throughout the life of the SSD, to reliably extract significantly more life from cost-effective MLC flash, making it suitable for read-intensive and mixed-use application workloads.
DataGuard Technology features full data path protection, safeguarding user data from corruption along all data paths in the SSD.
EverGuard Technology protects against loss of user data in the event of unexpected power interruptions using a 3rd generation backup power circuit design and high-reliability discrete capacitors.
Designed for entry-level enterprise, hyperscale and cloud data center server and storage environments with read-intensive workloads.
For read-intensive application workloads, such as file servers, Web-based applications, and virtual tape libraries (VTL). Along with SanDisk’s Guardian Technology platform and multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash technology, they deliver all the features expected from an enterprise-class SSD—at a great value.
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 5x4 higher than other multi-level cell (MLC) SSDs.
