"Our ARMv8 ThunderX processors deliver best-in-class performance for high-intensity workloads such as HPC, Big Data, and large-scale web applications. With up to 48 high-performance cores and integrated accelerators, we help drive faster results and reduced TCO", stated Steve Cumings, Director, Market Development, Cavium. "SanDisk is a leader in flash technology and we look forward to working with them to deliver best-in-class solutions."
SanDisk delivers innovative data centre storage solutions ranging from Solid State Drives (SSDs) to PCIe application accelerators and storage systems. These solutions accelerate performance of servers and storage arrays supporting Cloud, Big Data and database workloads, and market research data shows that flash technology is being rapidly adopted across all computing tiers. Each solution enables faster processing - and faster time-to-results - as customers seek to address the gap between increasing processor speeds and slow-moving hard disk drive (HDD) storage.
"SanDisk delivers Flash-based storage solutions that accelerate workload performance for our customers and we see Cavium taking a similar CPU design approach for HPC and other demanding workloads", stated John Scaramuzzo, senior vice president and general manager, Enterprise Solutions, SanDisk. "As data centre workloads, compute and storage requirements continue to grow, so too will the demand for flash based storage acceleration. We intend to work with and enable innovators like Cavium to address these needs."
