Huawei Picks SanDisk ULLtraDIMM SSD with 5 Microsecond Latency

Huawei Technologies will use SanDisk's new ULLtraDIMM SSD in its high-performance RH8100 V3 servers. Testing by Huawei demonstrated the ULLtraDIMM SSD achieved the industry’s lowest write latency at less than five microseconds and offered bandwidth that topped that of any other SSD solution. Adding flash-based storage to the DDR memory bus with direct connection to the processor allows Huawei to deliver a more powerful solution. Huawei will combine the ULLtraDIMM with its self-developed caching software in order to accelerate application performance with the lowest possible latency, while offering the scalability to handle bandwidth-intensive database and virtualization applications.

“The ULLtraDIMM SSD was designed to expand the reach of ultra-low latency flash storage throughout the data center and scale to meet the requirements of any enterprise application, no matter how bandwidth or capacity intensive,” said John Scaramuzzo, senior vice president and general manager, Enterprise Storage Solutions at SanDisk. “We are very excited to partner with Huawei to offer this innovative, ultra-low latency storage solution, which will accelerate the performance of its customers’ cloud, virtualization, OLTP, HPC and other applications, and help them experience the benefits of a flash-transformed data center.”
