The challenges for predictable performance and increased storage capacity are ever present in today’s data centers. 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 Mixed-Use 6Gb/s (SAS) SSDs offer solid I/O cost-toperformance benefits where quick access to data is vital.

Available in 200GB, 400GB and 800GB2 SLC capacities and delivers random read/write performance of up to 110K/11K-16K and sequential read/write data throughput rates of up to 385-450/220 MB/s1. Lightning Mixed-Use SSDs provide an I/O pattern designed predominately for application workloads such as On-Line Transaction Processing (OLTP) Databases, E-mail/Messaging, Virtual Desktop, and Collaboration, with a typical workload comprised of a 70/30 read/write mix.

Lightning Mixed-Use SSDs are designed with an advanced innovative controller that uses a parallel processing architecture to deliver proven and tested superior reliability for storage and server environments. Lightning SSDs have been specifically designed for demanding, mission-critical, 24/7 applications.
