The multitude of enterprise storage performance dimensions makes it difficult to make an apple-to-apple comparison between AFAs. Performance density is a “little metric” that we like to consider when characterizing All-Flash Arrays (AFAs). Quite simply, it is the amount of bandwidth, IOPs, or latency compared with the amount of storage capacity in a given form factor. For Pavilion’s Hyperparallel Flash Array, you would see 120/90 Read/Write GB/sec. 40M IOPS at 40 microseconds of latency with 1.1PB of capacity in 4RU. Pure Storage recently released Purity//FA 5.2, with improved compression and end-to-end NVMe-oF. However, some key performance details are missing.
The goal of a production organization is to create, collaborate, and format digital assets for rapid monetization. Traditionally, this is achieved by utilizing a large number of hard disk drives and solid disk drives. While this speeds operation, this results in over allocating-storage (as much as 4X) and increases the production costs. NVMe SSDs provides M&E workflows the high-performance and low latency they require. But achieving these benefits requires that the NVMe drive and the production software reside in the same server node. That is, until Pavilion Data. Pavilion’s NVMe over fabric (NVMe-oF) storage array provides remote M&E applications
Escape Velocity – The initial speed required to go from an initial point in a gravitational potential field to infinity…Wikipedia Last week when Pavilion was honored Best in Show at Flash Memory Summit in the most innovative Flash Memory Startup category, the award was met with mixed emotions. Of course, we were proud and humbled. According to show organizers, a record number of award submissions were received this year, making the judging quite challenging and each of the categories extremely competitive. At the same time, it was overshadowed knowing that today we would be announcing the news of an
Pavilion Data Systems has a mantra, a basic set of directives: Disrupt the data storage Enable true OPENCHOICE of NVMe SSDs Deliver the industry’s first Hyperparallel Flash Array. With several members of our team having deep experience defining and launching performance storage devices (including the first PCIe SSDs, the first NVMe SSDs and multiple follow-on generations of NVMe) of we have strong opinions about the new drives that we qualify for OPENCHOICE. Typically, we keep these opinions to ourselves. Occasionally, a drive comes along that creates more water-cooler buzz than others. At the moment, that drive is the
