Just recently, we took another giant leap toward ushering in a New Era of Flash as we looked to address the growing trend of custom built hyperscale architectures. We found that many organizations are developing these demanding data center environments on their own because they’re forced to do more with less. In order to build an effective hyperscale architecture and reduce enterprise storage footprints without breaking the bank, the best in-class hardware and software need to be combined.
This is where our new Optimus Eco comes in! This industry first Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) 6Gb/s SSD features 19nm multi-level cell (MLC) Flash, lowering total cost of ownership (TCO) when paired with a perfect combination of performance, capacity, endurance and reliability. All of these factors come into play when planning out hardware options for hyperscale architecture. Understanding the importance of hyperscale data centers not only makes C-Level management happy, but also allows storage architects to design a highly reliable and performance-driven data center that will lower the overall cost of storage in the long run. With up to 10 drive writes per day, 500/500MB/s sustained read/write performance, 100K/45K random IOPS and a five-year warranty, Optimus Eco is changing the way data centers are being structured, and analysts agree.
“SMART Storage continues its product development in the SAS SSD space with the new products that add incremental density and lower cost per GB.”
