The Lightning Eco™ Gen. II 12Gb/s SAS SSD from SanDisk® doubles interface speed, providing the highest performance for mission-critical hyperscale, cloud and virtualized data center application workloads. This next generation Lightning® SSD offers a featurerich robust design, combined with SanDisk’s custom controller and innovative parallel processing architecture to deliver full data path protection (T10-DIF support), temperature based power control, SED instant secure erase, an MTBF of 2.5 million hours, and power fail protection. This SSD is backward-compatible with 6Gb/s SAS and offers a single firmware binary platform for seamless integration and reduced qualification times.

Lightning Eco™ Gen. II SAS SSDs offer solid I/O cost to performance benefits with low latency data access for high quality of service (QoS). Available in 19nm eMLC capacities from 800GB - 1.6TB2 and with random read/write performance of up to 195K/80K IOPS* and sequential read/write speed of up to 980/600 MB/s1/*. These SSDs are designed for read-intensive applications such as Data Warehousing, Media Streaming, Video on Demand (VOD), Web-based Applications, Virtual Tape Libraries (VTL) and File Servers, with a heavy read workload comprised of a 90/10 read/write mix. This SSD offers 3 full drive writes per day (DWPD) with a limited 5 year warranty.4

Lightning Eco Gen. II SAS SSDs are a product of SanDisk’s vertical integration - spanning from the fabrication of the NAND technology and wafer to the manufacturing of the finished SSD. This vertical integration, results in a customized solution that takes full advantage of each component to deliver maximum performance and quality assurance. Lightning Eco Gen. II SSDs provide high, predictable performance, industry-leading reliability and maximum value.

* Performance may vary by capacity.

1. Based on direct attached SAS performance testing, performance may be lower depending upon host device, OS and application.

2. 1 gigabyte (GB) = 1 billion bytes. Some capacity not available for data storage.

3. MTBF – Mean Time Between Failures based on parts stress analysis.

4. The earlier of (I) five (5) years or (II) the time at which such Product unit’s total cumulative data recorded on such unit at its S.M.A.R.T. attribute (log page 2Fh, parameter 25) or log page 11h, parameter 1 (Percentage Used Endurance Indicator) reaches 100% of the Product unit’s endurance value.
