Extreme Storage for Extreme Performance.
Recipient of multiple awards, including Frost & Sullivan's Digital Media Storage Innovation of the Year and HPCWire's Best Product and Technology of the Year, the S2A9900 is the pinnacle of DDN S2A technology and is designed to thrive in throughput-intensive environments, with scalable capacity unrivaled in the industry.
Developed over a decade of global deployments, our Silicon Storage Architecture, S2A, is a purpose-built architecture utilising custom FPGAs with extreme levels of intelligence, designed to solve the data infrastructure problems that others simply cannot. The S2A9900 is a purpose-built data infrastructure platform encompassing the S2A state machine architecture and advanced software that is specifically optimised for throughput-intensive applications, enabling clients to seamlessly adapt to the transition to all-digital content, manage the unmitigated explosion of unstructured data and deploy a centralised storage architecture.
The S2A9900 enables clients to run multiple applications simultaneously in parallel, whereas competitors force clients to run applications sequentially, costing more time, more money, and more management personnel. The S2A9900 is a technically elegant data infrastructure platform that cost-effectively provides extreme performance and capacity, managing 2.4PB in only two 44U racks and delivering sustained, real-time throughput per appliance of up to 6GB/s for both writes and reads. This S2A platform provides the performance and capacity headroom to scale as bandwidth and files continue to grow while providing real-time data integrity checking, error correction and intelligent drive failure recovery without degrading performance.
Proven for extreme scalability over 8 generations, the S2A9900 is the standard in the world's largest, most content-intensive environments. Today, DDN's most extreme user relies on the S2A9900 to power the largest and fastest file system in the world, delivering over 240GB/s of consistent bandwidth across 11 petabytes of scalable capacity.
