8th February 2017 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

WD-logoNew Delhi, India, February 8, 2017 — Western Digital Corporation today rolled out SanDisk SkyhawkTM NVMe-compatible PCIe solid-state drives (SSDs) via the company’s blog.

The new SSDs are optimized to offer customers the ideal balance of fast and consistent performance, cost-effect storage and Quality of Service (QoS) to address large, unstructured data center workloads for cloud environments.

Skyhawk SSDs leverage advanced NAND flash storage, a new high-performance PCIe Gen 3 SSD controller, the company’s proprietary Guardian Technology platform and the industry standard NVMe 1.2 protocol to bring enterprise-class reliability, outstanding endurance and exceptional performance to data centers for data analytics processing (OLAP), databases, financial and e-commerce systems, cloud virtualization, media streaming, video on demand, and more.

By utilizing the fast and flexible PCIe interface, Skyhawk SSDs deliver nearly triple the sequential performance, of comparable enterprise SATA SSDs and enable IT managers to address rigorous workload demands of these environments with fewer devices and a smaller physical hardware footprint compared to systems built with SATA-interface based SSDs.

Skyhawk SSDs, the latest SSDs from Western Digital, utilize the increasingly popular PCIe interface. These new additions to Western Digital’s large portfolio of enterprise storage devices further the company’s commitment to offer its customers a wide choice of solutions to meet their unique enterprise work-load and data center requirements.

Skyhawk SSDs are currently sampling to select OEM customers and will be available in Q2 of this calendar year.
