SQLServerCentral.com’s Wesley Brown holds enterprise storage to high standards, and when testing SanDisk’s Lightning® LS 300S, he didn’t hold back. His two-part review covers drive basics and I/O performance, and then delves into benchmarks and long-term stress tests.
The Lightning drive performed very well in each test pattern, one “real world” scenario and the other loosely based on the Intel database test pattern. The drive performed particularly well with response times and capacity for write workloads.
Wesley concludes, “I can say without a doubt the … LS 300 is one of the finest solid state disk I’ve ever worked with.”
