SolidFire: All-SSD Storage To 3.4 PBs?
Boulder, Colo.-based all-flash array developer SolidFire, which in July received a $31 million investment from flash memory maker Samsung, started shipping a new version of its storage solution that offers the possibility of building an all-SSD storage platform of up to 3.4 PBs.
SolidFire's newest all-SSD array, the SF9010, features Samsung's 960-GB SSDs. Like its previous models, the SF9010 features on-the-fly scaling of both capacity and performance.
The new SF9010 all-SSD nodes allow customers to build storage architectures of up to 100 nodes with a total capacity of 3.4 petabytes and 7.5 million IOPS, which SolidFire admitted is a theoretical limit, as no one has ever built out that large an architecture.
