The product is the SanDisk Optimus Max SCSI SAS SSD in a 4TB capacity. SanDisk says that its new storage solution outpaces the highest capacity 2.5-inch 10k and 15k rpm SAS HDDs. The new product is aimed directly at the data center. Pricing on the drives is unannounced at this time.

"Customers have been looking for a way to transition their data centers from HDDs to NAND flash, but have been forced to decide between cost and performance, or give up important functionality," said John Scaramuzzo, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Enterprise Storage Solutions at SanDisk. "The Optimus MAX eliminates the need for compromises. We believe that the Optimus MAX will be a disruptive force within the storage industry, catalyzing many organizations to make the switch from their HDD-prominent data center infrastructures to SSDs."
