Sandisk launched the next generation of FlashSoft software for Microsoft Windows Server and Microsoft Hyper-V.

The company said the new offering will ensure the most frequently accessed data (hot data) is serviced by server-side flash rather than slower back-end storage.

As a result, it alleviates storage performance bottlenecks and accelerates applications by reducing response time, without mandating a large investment in hardware.

“We recognize that efficient access to data for key applications is an essential requirement for our enterprise customers,” said Ravi Swaminathan, vice president and general manager, Systems and Software Solutions, SanDisk.

Further, SanDisk explained how enterprises can make use of the FlashSoft software. The company said enterprises can accelerate application performance by a 4.38 times increase in transactions per second.

In recent SanDisk news, the company said earlier in October that it started equipment  installation in the New Fab 2 facility at Yokkaichi Operations with Toshiba.

The new Fab 2 is primarily intended to provide the clean room space necessary to transit a significant portion of the current Yokkaichi 2D NAND capacity to 3D flash memory.

The facility is expected to be ready for production in the first calendar quarter of 2016.
