CloudSpeed™ Gen. II
Solid State Drives

Superior performance for hyperscale data centers


Hyperscale Data Center Flash Storage

Cloud Service Providers need to manage transactional and mixed workloads – databases, email/collaboration, Linux containers – to satisfy consumer cloud services like ecommerce and enterprise-oriented XaaS offerings. In order to offer database and application performance tiers of service, while controlling infrastructure costs, service providers need to increase compute-storage density for efficient data center utilization.

CloudSpeed Ultra™ Gen. II SATA SSD

Optimized for latency-sensitive application and mixed-use workloads for predictable random I/O write performance, this flash storage solution works within existing infrastructure – SATA interface – and can replace hard disk drives for lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and better data center efficiency through server consolidation.

CloudSpeed Eco™ Gen. II SATA SSD

Optimized for read-intensive cloud workloads – video/media streaming and content repositories – where sustained data throughput is critical to satisfy end users of cloud services. Designed to replace high-capacity HDDs, CloudSpeed Eco Gen. II enables highly-scalable cloud architectures for consumer and enterprise cloud offerings.

CloudSpeed Ultra™ Gen. II SATA SSD for Elastic Infrastructure

Cloud Service Providers and software-defined storage vendors who need an elastic infrastructure to effectively manage transactional workloads, such as databases and applications, can leverage CloudSpeed Ultra™ Gen. II SSD for low-latency application demands while controlling infrastructure costs. CloudSpeed Ultra Gen. II SSD provides price/performance leadership  with up to 1.6TB2 SATA SSD to enable low-latency application performance for data center infrastructure cost reductions through server consolidation.


“The combined solution of SanDisk® SSDs within the Dell PowerEdge R720 and PowerEdge T620 servers provide a strong platform for VMware Virtual SAN.”

-Brian Payne,
executive director of server solutions, Dell

"All-flash arrays are beginning to grow in popularity as a solution that delivers higher performance, improved responsiveness, and better efficiency,” 

- Jeff Janukowicz
research director for solid state storage at IDC

Databases, Linux Containers and Server Virtualization

Open source databases that power e-commerce micropayments, “In-App” purchases, and other transaction-oriented workloads. Poor response times mean lost revenue and tarnished brands. Database instances based on Linux containers or hypervisors can meet performance requirements when leveraging SSDs optimized for random write performance.

Web Servers

Heavy web traffic and concurrent connections supported by higher-performing SSDs enable hyperscale architectures to support volumes of content delivery.

Email and Collaboration

Cloud-based collaboration has time-sensitive elements where lower latency SSDs performance can enable teams to foster better innovation or uncover greater productivity efficiency.

Open Source Software

Standardizing on web architectures based on open source software is critical for today’s most popular web properties. Write operations and server node density of open source software solutions stand to gain a lower total cost of ownership by leveraging performance density of SATA SSDs that are up to 1.6TB of usable capacity.

Web Servers

SSDs support Internet traffic that enters the data center for processing by avoiding I/O bottlenecks. This enables fast processing by cloud service providers and accelerates end-to-end Web-enabled workloads.

Media Streaming

Flash storage supports high data transfer rates for the large datasets that are generated for movies, videos, and music and distributed via broadcast and the Internet. Flash also supports faster animation rendering and image-painting and enhances performance with near-real-time results.

Cloud Computing

Cloud computing infrastructure is generally scale-out infrastructure, involving hundreds or thousands of small servers, arranged in a grid, cluster, or array. Applications and data are distributed across the cloud computing infrastructure—and software guides the motion of virtual machines (VMs) across distributed server resources in the cloud data center. SanDisk flash storage enables high performance for cloud computing workloads and ensures efficient processing for applications.

Video on Demand

Video on Demand (VOD) is accessed by PCs, smartphones, and entertainment HD-TVs or tablets. It allows users to access video from virtually any device instantly; and it gives media companies the ability to serve thousands of users simultaneously.
