SanDisk has upgraded its InfiniFlash big data boxes with the addition of the IF150. The new box takes advantage of the SAS (Serial-attached SCSI) 3.0 protocol that was launched last summer and which doubles throughput from 6GBps to 12GBps per port.

The IF150 – like the other InfiniFlash boxes – does not have traditional HDD format 2.5″ or 3.5″ flash drives but makes use of 8TB PCIe flash cards. It puts up to 64 of them in a 3U box for maximum capacity of up to 512TB.
SAS 3.0 doesn’t affect the internals of the IF box but instead upgrades the connection out to servers attached to it.
