A better way to build performance Scale-up / Scale-out SAN Storage!
We have come up with the better way to build your storage infrastructure! It really is as simple as separating the high-value storage controller from the commodity storage components to make the most powerful and flexible enterprise-class storage for your server, cluster or cloud infrastructures. By separating the various components, you can architect your storage based on what you want and what your needs are. Need more flash, add any flash JBOD or array. Need more spinning drives, sure add them as well. Want to mix Flash and drives – sure you can do that too. How about mixed vendors – yes, you can do that too. XstreamCORE supports up to 240 drives (extendable to 960 devices for our OEM partners). ATTO engineered our XstreamCORE products to put you back in control to build your storage infrastructure for what you need.
Changing the cost equation:
When you consolidate the performance into a single independent SAN Storage controller you change the overall cost model. Now you only pay for the added commodity level JBODs and devices, rather than being forced to add the additional expense of more controllers. With enough performance to drive full racks of drives, it doesn’t take long before you become a hero for saving significant money.
But that’s only half the story. What about performance?
We build our independent SAN storage controller, XstreamCORE, to be the most powerful controller available – outperforming any competition, even from Flash arrays. With our eye-popping 1.2M - 4K IOPS and 6.4GB/s throughput with less than 4 microseconds of added latency, we dare any controller company to beat our specs!
How do we do it? We apply our nearly 30 years of innovation history and experience in SSDs, server adapters and storage interface technology for some of the most demanding OEMs in the industry into every XstreamCORE design we make. We have developed our chipsets to with our xCORE™ Data Acceleration technology that drives multiple parallel I/O acceleration engines to move data fast. It is amazing what you can do with this blazing speed to build new architectures for your application needs.
Managing all those drives gets even simpler!
Everyone knows that large scale drive pools are awesome for scaling needs, but without management of all those devices, those pools can get challenging. That’s why XstreamCORE provides common, open storage services to simply integrate with industry standard APIs. Also, you can now simply manage large numbers of different devices into usable pools through XstreamCORE’s group & persistent device reservations management, virtualized devices services, storage routing and host / LUN mapping functions.
So what else can XsteamCORE do?
