Guardian Technology™ Platform
The product family of Optimus SAS SSDs is powered by SanDisk’s proprietary Guardian Technology Platform, a comprehensive suite of enterprise features comprised of 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 commercial-grade MLC flash, making it suitable for mixed-use, read-intensive and write-intensive 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 highreliability discrete capacitors. Optimus SAS SSDs are designed for I/O intensive, mission-critical, 24/7 applications.
Databases supporting on-line transaction processing (OLTP) workloads, such as those used inside “integrated systems,” must keep pace with large amounts of data, as they are updated throughout the day, for 24/7 operations.
Ideal for mixed-use environments and applications like collaboration, email and messaging, financial transactions, on-line transaction processing (OLTP) databases and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).
Optimus Ultra SAS SSDs provide performance, capacity, and reliability for databases and line-of-business applications, ERP, CRM, and on-line transaction processing.
Optimus Extreme SAS SSDs are designed for demanding write-intensive application workloads that need the highest levels of performance and reliability.
Up to 4TB7 for read-intensive applications such as data warehousing, media streaming, web servers, video on demand (VOD), and web-based applications, with a typical workload comprised of a 90/10 read/write mix.
