INFINIFLASH FROM SANDISK
Today’s highly visual, social, analytics-driven society continues to crave higher performance, max-capacity storage solutions to fuel both new business insights and personal interactions. BIOS IT has a long-standing partnership with SanDisk and is happy to announce the advent of the InfiniFlash™, a new storage platform offering massive capacity and high density to address the demands of capacity workloads at scale without compromise.
InfiniFlash is designed to address diverse enterprise and hyperscale workloads including:
- Big Data Analytics—InfiniFlash delivers both the capacity and performance needed to mine information stores for patterns that translate into business insights for workloads such as Hadoop, Cassandra and MongoDB, as well as delivers timely analysis of in-memory databases.
- Content Repositories—High-definition content repositories, such as social media sites, require blazingly fast read capabilities in order to deliver a delightful user experience. InfiniFlash provides quick and easy access to high-definition content 24x7.
- Media Streaming – InfiniFlash supports the high data transfer rates needed for capturing and delivering rich media content such as movies, music, and video surveillance, that it can then rapidly analyse and deliver for viewing.
The box supports up to 8 SAS-connected servers and SanDisk says it delivers extreme performance: "InfiniFlash is able to achieve 1 million IOPs per second, which was achieved on an Active-Active Configuration consisting of 2 nodes, 4k block size, 100 per cent read 0 percent write ratio, and it was random access."
- 512 Terabytes of Flash in only 3U
- Up to 1 Million IOPS & Less than 1ms Latency
- 7Gbps throughput
- Connect Up to 8 Servers
- Simple to use
- Available as an open platform, configured with Ceph or Infiniflash OS
Tens and even hundreds of InfiniFlash boxes can be ganged together in a scale-out cluster or namespace, SanDisk says, with a maximum capacity of 15PB per cluster. There can be 1 billion objects per cluster or namespace, described by SanDisk as "per device group" with no limits on device groups.
