Sandisk announces 4TB SSDs
Sandisk today announced the Optimus MAX Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) solid state drive (SSD), the industry’s first 4TB SAS SSD. The Optimus SSDs were part of SMART Storage, a company Sandisk acquired last year.
As with all SanDisk Optimus drives, the Optimus MAX SSD includes the company’s proprietary Guardian Technology Platform, comprised of FlashGuard, DataGuard and EverGuard technologies to provide a combination of error correction and detection technology, full data path protection, and data fail recovery from lower cost MLC flash.
Along with today’s introduction of the Optimus MAX SSD, SanDisk also announced that it updated its entire Optimus product family to take advantage of 19nm MLC NAND flash in order to increase drive performance, as well as renaming the previous Optimus and Optimus Ultra+ SSDs as the Optimus Ascend and Optimus Extreme SSDs, respectively.
Tracking to each drives’ endurance capabilities, the new Optimus SSD product family includes:
• Optimus MAX SSD (1-3 full DWPD)
• Optimus Eco SSDs (1-3 full DWPD)
• Optimus Ascend SSDs (10 full DWPD)
• Optimus Ultra SSDs (25 full DWPD)
• Optimus Extreme SSDs (45 full DWPD)
The Optimus MAX SSD and renewed Optimus family of drives will be available with TCG Enterprise Security Subsystem Class compliance to select OEMs and through the channel in Q3-2014.
