A full rack of Gemini arrays can provide up to 1 petabyte of flash storage capability. Isakovich compared that to standard disk-based arrays, which might require up to eight racks of 15,000-rpm drives to provide the same capacity. The Gemini can reach up to 12 GB per second and over 1 million IOPS performance, Nimbus' Isakovich said.
The new array also includes the ability to switch connectivity between Ethernet and InfiniBand on one model or between Ethernet and Fibre Channel on the other model, depending on how customers' requirements change, Isakovich said.
"It's future-proof," he said. "No matter how customers' protocol needs evolve, the Gemini will be ready for it."
Nimbus Data is a highly technical company, and its products are not something typical solution providers can handle, InterVision's Fouladgar said.
However, for InterVision customers with high-performance Web, media and entertainment applications, it has been a great product line, he said.
"We've gotten Thomas (Isakovich) in front of customers, and we have several POCs [proofs of concept] on-going," he said. "We expect success with the product line, especially once the Gemini is released in the fourth quarter. We've found Nimbus to offer best-of-breed products for our customer base."
