SanDisk promises twice performance with InfiniFlash IF150 storage


SanDisk announced all-flash storage platform InfiniFlash IF150 system, expanding its InfiniFlash family.

The company promises twice the performance via upgraded 12Gbps SAS connectivity with the new product.

It also offers the same massive capacity to big data and hyperscale workloads as the previous generation of InfiniFlash

Further, it allows up to an 80 percent reduction in total cost of ownership (TCO) advantage over HDD-based systems.

SanDisk claims the IF150 consumes less power – 450 watts average, significantly reducing data center operating expenses.

SanDisk said the new product broadens the potential uses for the next-generation storage platform around a variety of new workloads, including high-performance computing (HPC), big data analytics, media services and other high capacity, extreme performance-demanding applications.

Ravi Swaminathan, vice president and general manager of systems and software solutions at SanDisk said SanDisk customers have recognised the benefits of InfiniFlash System since its launch.

SanDisk customers range from data centers in research institutions doing big data analytics to web providers, hyperscalers and video streaming companies who manage data on a massive scale.

“With our new IF150 system, we have pushed the performance even further, while at the same time delivering massive-scale storage at a price point that makes business sense,” he added.

InfiniFlash customer Glenn Johansson, chief executive officer & founder, GleSYS Internet Services AB commented: “Incorporating SanDisk’s InfiniFlash system as part of our solution provides GleSYS with a seamless, simple-to-manage, cost-efficient solution that delivers substantial performance gains over traditional legacy infrastructure.”
