ViON announced that it has completed a sale of a 100 terabyte array of its HyperStor-6200 SSD solution to a customer. This storage system provides the lowest cost for performance, the highest density, and the lowest latency eFlash storage solution on the market. The HyperStor 6200, as ordered, services more than 5,000,000 I/Os per second and 60 GB per second of bandwidth. This installation is believed to provide the largest RAM-based storage system in the world.
Solid state disk systems are used by large enterprise, government, military and research organizations to accelerate their most critical applications. Larger and faster systems support more transactions and users with fewer servers and licenses making precious resources more productive. As such, the HyperStor 6200 is more cost-effective than other performance augmentation solutions such as adding large hard-disk based systems, server-based RAM, or expensive and complicated application tuning. The eFlash-based HyperStor 6200 offers dramatically greater capacities, lower costs, and power consumption than was previously available. [VION via HPCWire]
