SanDisk Corporation, a global leader in flash memory storage solutions, today extended its enterprise solid state disk drive (SSD) solutions portfolio with the acquisition of FlashSoft, a provider of innovative caching software products. SanDisk intends to sell FlashSoft's products as standalone software, as well as offer these software products in combination with SanDisk's growing portfolio of SAS, PCIe and SATA enterprise solutions.
FlashSoft's software is targeted for Windows, Linux and VMWare platforms, and will form the basis of a growing ecosystem of SSD-optimized software solutions from SanDisk and third party partners, enabling the configuration of complete solutions optimized for the specialized needs of enterprise and cloud customers.
Data center managers face ongoing challenges in achieving balanced application performance as the underlying system resources process data at different rates. As CPU speeds and memory bandwidth have grown rapidly, I/O bottlenecks have begun limiting application performance as data-starved CPUs must wait for overloaded I/O subsystems to deliver application data.
SanDisk Corporation, a global leader in flash memory storage solutions, today announced it has entered into a worldwide, exclusive agreement with Diskeeper Corp. to license its industry leading caching software solutions for solid state disk drives (SSDs). Under the terms of the agreement, SanDisk will provide these solutions both as standalone software products as well as bundled with SanDisk's SSD products for client computing applications. The resulting hardware/software bundled solution from SanDisk will help its consumer OEM customers build optimized computing devices, such as Ultrabooks and other ultra-thin form factor products, that provide greater responsiveness, higher performance and an overall better user experience to consumers worldwide.
The agreement initially calls for SanDisk to exclusively license Diskeeper's ExpressCache® and NowOn™ software products, which improve overall system performance and boot time in dual-drive (paired SSD and HDD) storage configurations. SanDisk has the ability to license other Diskeeper products currently in various stages of development for application across client and enterprise computing and mobile markets. Additional details of the agreement were not disclosed.
"The combination of Diskeeper's industry-leading ExpressCache and NowOn software offerings with SanDisk's broad and flexible client SSD solutions delivers the lowest-cost, smallest footprint implementation to meet Ultrabook requirements," said Kevin Conley, SanDisk's senior vice president and general manager, Client Storage Solutions. "We are excited to add these software solutions to our portfolio for standalone and bundled opportunities in this rapidly growing market."
