The E-Class system can support up to 500TB of capacity in one logical pool while consuming as little as 5 watts of electricity per terabyte.
Data Systems, which makes storage systems that ostensibly are intelligent
enough to think for themselves, Jan. 31 launched what it described as the
industry's first fully redundant, multiprotocol solid-state storage array.
new E-Class Flash Memory System, loaded exclusively with enterprise-grade NAND
flash, features complete redundancy and no single point of failure, Nimbus
founder and CEO Tom Isakovich told eWEEK
is the most scalable and highest-density solid-state storage system yet
engineered," Isakovich said. "It has more than three times the
density of standard 15K RPM disk arrays."
E-Class system supports up to 500TB of capacity in one logical pool while
consuming as little as 5 watts of electricity per terabyte, Isakovich said.
it has no single point of failure, Nimbus' E-Class is ticketed for
high-intensity applications such as enterprise-wide server virtualization, Web
infrastructure, database clusters, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and
E-Class platform consists of a pair of redundant controllers and up to 24
solid-state storage enclosures, Isakovich said. Each controller can support up
to four active-active I/O modules, including the connectivity choices of 10
Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel or InfiniBand.
Nimbus HALO storage operating system is a unified SAN and NAS software stack
currently in operation at about 200 customer installations. It automatically
detects controller and path failures to provide nondisruptive failover,
Isakovich said. The system supports online software updates and online capacity
RAID protection and hot-swappable NAND flash, power and cooling modules,
components can be replaced without needing to take the system down.
Nimbus E-Class is available now, with a 10TB dual-controller configuration
priced at $149,995. The full HALO storage operating system is included in the
system price. Go here
