PCIe SSDs for Application Acceleration
The HGST Ultrastar® SN100 Series offers unprecedented performance acceleration for today's most demanding cloud, hyperscale and enterprise applications, allowing them to scale to new heights. The HGST architecture has been designed to tightly integrate different kinds of Flash media, hardware and software to deliver memory-class performance with storage- class capacity and persistence. The Ultrastar SN100 Series comes in multiple form factors, as a low-profile HH-HL expansion card and as a highly-serviceable SFF 2.5-inch drive.
NVMe™ Support Eases Deployment and Management
To enable broad product interoperability and improve ease of deployment, the Ultrastar SN100 Series supports standard NVM Express (NVMe) drivers. NVMe is an interface specification that was created to deliver the full potential of non-volatile memory in PCIe- based solid-state storage devices to meet the needs of enterprise and client platforms. The NVMe standard allows the Ultrastar SN100 Series of products to effectively use the high speed PCIe interconnect with a standard OS driver. As a result, NVMe enables simplified configuration management and control in enterprise environments.
The Ultrastar SN100 Series delivers consistent performance across all application workloads over the lifecycle of the product, even when the device is fully utilized, and provides high performance for various workloads, whether it is random, sequential or mixed I/O. By offering 310,000 mixed random I/O performance, the Ultrastar SN100 Series will allow OLTP applications to scale to new levels.
Offered in up to 3.2TB capacity in both form factors, the Ultrastar SN100 Series delivers high storage density in a very compact size. In fact, the SFF form factor in this product family delivers the highest density amongst NVMe compliant SFF devices in the industry today.
Lower Capital and Operating Cost
By combining high performance, high density, support for the NVMe standard and trusted HGST reliability, less infrastructure is required to meet the the demanding requirements of enterprise and hyperscale data centers, directly resulting in overall lower total cost of ownership.
