Global flash storage solutions vendor, SanDisk (NASDAQ:SNDK), and QCT (Quanta Cloud Technology), a global provider of data center solutions, have announced a collaboration to deliver an all-flash storage solution designed to provide massive scale, efficiency, and resiliency to OpenStack and Ceph environments.
The joint solution will be built on SanDisk’s InfiniFlash System and QCT’s unique server designs and will deliver a unified scale-out, all-flash storage solution for petabyte workloads such as Big Data environments.
InfiniFlash is a “next-generation” storage platform created by SanDisk, offering “up to 5x the density, 50x the IOPS and 4x the reliability,” while consuming “up to 80 percent less power” than traditional hard disk drive (HDD) arrays.
QCT’s unique server designs would advance data centers to the next level of hyperscale performance and effectiveness, helping data center customers accelerate in the ever-changing cloud computing battle.
“As a leader in flash storage solutions, we recognize the scaling out challenges involved in the cloud infrastructures of our customers,” said Ravi Swaminathan, vice president and general manager, Systems and Software Solutions at SanDisk. “By partnering with QCT, SanDisk is better equipped to deploy flash for our Hyperscale data center customers and support a wide range of workloads with greater agility, performance and reliability across the data center.”
QCT’s product lines include servers, storage, network switches, integrated rack systems and cloud solutions, all delivering hyperscale scalability and optimized performance for each workload.
“We are enthusiastic about the positive impact of this technology collaboration,” said Mike Yang, General Manager of QCT. “As one of the leading cloud-native data center solutions providers, QCT has built its success upon our engineering expertise in designing efficient systems and driving innovation. With access to SanDisk’s all-flash storage solutions, we can now deliver even more enhanced and integrated cloud systems with hyperscale efficiency to data center customers.”
