Performance and low latency for hyperscale data centers
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.
Cloud-based collaboration supported by lower-latency SSDs can help speed the pace of innovation and increase productivity, and high-performing SSDs enable service providers to support high-volume web content delivery.
Flash performance supports high data transfer rates of large datasets streamed for movies, videos and music, and enables media companies to serve thousands of users simultaneously.
Expand storage hardware capabilities and improve flexibility through Software-defined Storage. Higher density SSDs enable new scale-out architectures for hyperconverged deployments, resulting in smaller data center footprints and increased efficiency.
Harness the power of big data by running complex multi-dimensional queries to unearth valuable insights for faster decision making. Lower-latency SSDs enable more sophisticated queries within the same time window as traditional storage solutions.

Enhancing Performance and Reducing Cost for Microsoft SQL Server Workloads with HGST- and SanDisk-Brand SSDs
1. One gigabyte (GB) is equal to 1,000MB (one billion bytes) and one terabyte (TB) is equal to 1,000GB (one trillion bytes) when referring to solid-state capacity. Accessible capacity will vary from the stated capacity due to formatting and partitioning of the drive, the computer’s operating system, and other factors.
2. Performance will vary by capacity point, or with the changes in useable capacity. Consult product manual for further details. All performance measurements are in full sustained mode and are peak values. Preliminary and subject to change.
3. KiB= 1,024 bytes
4. MiB= 1,048,576 bytes
5. MTBF rating is based on a sample population and is estimated by statistical measurement and acceleration algorithms under median operating conditions. MTBF rating does not predict an individual drive’s reliability and does not constitute a warranty.
6. The lesser of 5 years from the date of manufacture of the product or the date on which the product’s relevant endurance thresholds set forth in the product specifications are reached.
