Extreme IOPS and Extreme Bandwidth.
The DataDirect Networks' Storage Fusion Architecture (SFA) fuses the best parts of today's advanced processor technology, busses and memory architecture with an optimised RAID engine and data management algorithms. These are tightly integrated to derive peak performance out of a massive IO infrastructure and multi-media disk drives to maximise system performance and lower storage investment costs. The fusion of unprecedented levels of bandwidth and IOPS enable this system to serve as the storage foundation for any Extreme Storage application set.
The SFA10000 provides superior performance for both highly transactional and high-bandwidth applications, delivering bandwidth of up to 10GB/s for both Reads and Writes, as well as up to 1,000,000 random IOPS to cache and 300,000 random IOPS to disk. With over 48GB/s of internal system bandwidth, the SFA10000 can perform multiple levels of parity generation, drive correction and data integrity verification without detracting from an application's performance.
Designed for multiple classes of data and storage performance requirements, the SFA10000 multi-RAID architecture combines up to 1,200 SATA, SAS and SSD disks into a simply managed, multi-petabyte architecture. Data resides on the optimal disk technology according to priority and access pattern, while leveraging a choice of RAID levels for maximum performance and cost-effectiveness.
