Western Digital Corporation have introduced the new SanDisk Skyhawk NVMe-compatible PCIe SSDs, which offer advanced NAND flash storage, a new high-performance PCIe Gen 3 SSD controller, the company's proprietary Guardian Technology platform and the industry standard NVMe 1.2 protocol.

By utilising the fast and highly flexible PCIe interface, they deliver nearly triple the sequential performance of comparable enterprise SATA SSDs, enabling IT managers to address the rigorous workload demands of these environments with fewer devices and a smaller physical hardware footprint compared to systems built with SATA-interface based SSDs. Other features include:

• Offers up to 3.84TB of storage capacity in a U.2, 2.5-inch small form factor
• Compliance with industry standard NVMe 1.2 protocol with in-box drivers for all major operating systems
• Optimised for read-intensive and mixed-use workloads (Up to 1,700MiB/s sequential read and 1,200 MiB/s sequential write).
