Finally, service providers have access to a storage solution that matches the on-demand deployment and scalability needs of the cloud.
It's time to discover what your cloud can do with optimally balanced storage performance and capacity.
The SolidFire storage system was architected from the ground up to deliver guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS) across multiple volumes in large-scale cloud infrastructures. Each SolidFire storage node is delivered as a self-contained storage appliances that when combined function in a distributed cluster architecture.
SolidFire storage systems are assembled through the combination
of multiple storage nodes over a 10GB iSCSI Ethernet network.
Reaching cloud scale with a SolidFire system is as simple and efficient as adding new nodes as performance or capacity demands dictate. The SolidFire primary storage solution scales to 100 nodes, 2 PB of capacity, and can deliver QoS to more than 100,000 tenant volumes hosted within a single cluster. At 50,000 IOPS per node, even the smallest deployments erase the server vs. storage I/O gap that has existed for years.
