western digital corp (WDC) Key Developments

Western Digital Corporation and NEC Corporation Deliver Proven Performance for Scalable SQL Server Appliances

Western Digital Corporation and NEC Corporation announced a PCIe SSD Appliance for Microsoft(R) SQL Server(R) -- a performance-driven reference architecture built on NEC Express 5800 scalable enterprise server series and high-performance HGST FlashMAX II PCIe server-mounted flash storage. This appliance not only demonstrates a tremendous boost in performance, but also reduces total cost of ownership (TCO) by significantly cutting rack space and power requirements when compared to previous generation solutions. The PCIe SSD appliance delivers more than twice the compute power of the previous generation 4CPU platform in a single 4U server, reducing rack space requirements by 69% and power consumption by 27%. The inclusion of HGST's FlashMAX II devices injects up to 8.8TB of high-performance flash per server, for a near doubling of logical scan rates to 8.2GBps that tackles even the large SQL workloads. With features once only found on mainframe or UNIX servers, this new appliance delivers significant and predicable performance, as well as scalability, to keep pace with the changing demands of today's enterprise data center operations.
