The Optimus 1.8" SAS product line is the first 1.8" SAS SSD in the industry, enabling high performance, high endurance and high reliability in the smallest form factor possible. Through usage of cost-effective MLC NAND Flash and SMART Storage Systems proprietary Guardian™ Technology Platform, the Optimus 1.8" SAS SSDs is able to be deployed in the most write intensive workloads without the worry of flash wear-out. SMART's extensive experience in flash characterization, firmware development, manufacturing and enterprise-level customer support ensure that Optimus 1.8" SAS SSDs are an ideal fit for a wide variety of mission-critical enterprise storage applications.
Available in 200GB and 400GB capacities, the Optimus 1.8" SAS SSD features industry-leading read/write speeds of 100K/45K random IOPS and 500/500 MB/s sustained transfer rates. The Optimus SSD is designed to deliver impressive performance consistently across any data type over the life of the product, guaranteeing no more than 5% performance degradation throughout its warranted lifetime.
Powered by the Guardian Technology Platform, Optimus 1.8" SAS SSDs can endure 10 full random drive writes per day for a period of five years using the latest MLC NAND flash technology. Additionally, Guardian technology features full data path protection safeguarding user data from corruption along all data paths in the drive. Protection against the loss of data at the page and block levels is accomplished through the drive's unique redundancy feature called F.R.A.M.E. (Flexible Redundant Array of Memory Elements). To ensure the highest reliability and data integrity, the drive architecture includes a high-reliability backup power circuitry to maintain power to the flash in the event of unplanned power failures.
