Coraid EtherFlash: Flash performance without the limitations of legacy storage
Coraid EtherFlash is a solution bundle that combines high performance flash drives with the scale-out architecture of Coraid EtherDrive to provide leading price-performance for I/O intensive applications.
Democratizing flash storage
- Scales to more than 3 Million IOPS and up to 200TB in a rack
- Starts at less than $10/GB
- Nearly 200,000 IOPS in a shelf
Accelerate high performance applications
Databases and virtual desktops can require a very high number of IOPS, and meeting those requirements with spinning media (SAS, SATA) is often prohibitively expensive. A typical 15K SAS drive can provide approximately 200 IOPS while a flash solid-state drive (SSD) provides over 10,000 IOPS. SSDs deliver outstanding performance, greater reliability, and significant power savings while providing the industry's highest IOPS per dollar for storage area networks.
EtherFlash combines SSD technology with highly scalable, low-latency storage access, making it the ideal platform for applications that require rapid access to real-time data in financial services, analytics, databases and data warehouses, high performance computing, web 2.0, and cloud computing.
Leverage the power of Ethernet SAN
Coraid’s Ethernet SAN platform uses massively parallel 10Gb Ethernet to deliver faster performance than high-end Fibre Channel arrays, at a fraction of the cost. The scale-out architecture avoids the controller bottlenecks of scale-up systems, allowing flash performance to scale linearly with business demand.
Reduce complexity with "one-tier-for-all"
Rather than deploy islands of specialized storage, you can deploy any mix of SSD, SAS, and SATA drives in a single array based on the application’s requirements. For example, a high-end Web application could leverage 24 or 36 SSDs in a single array, while a virtual desktop environment might combine 6 SSDs for shared boot images with 30 SATA drives for high-capacity file storage. This one-tier-for-all architecture uses a single building block to match the price-performance requirement of any application.
