SolidFire Targets Cloud Services Providers With All Solid-State Storage Solutions
SolidFire, a startup developer of all-solid-state storage solutions, in November unveiled its first solid-state storage-based nodes targeting cloud services providers.
The new nodes from SolidFire, which late last year came out of stealth mode, provide cloud services providers the ability to offer clear service-level agreements (SLAs) to customers, the company said.
The capacity of the SolidFire storage nodes can be carved up into multiple tiers of storage, each of which can be configured for performance or capacity. The new SolidFire storage nodes are targeting cloud services providers offering such high-performance applications as Oracle, SAP, Hadoop big data and NoSQL databases.
SolidFire released two models of its storage nodes. Up to 100 nodes can be clustered, with both performance and capacity increasing as nodes are added.
