6 Feb 2018 San Diego - One Stop Systems Inc. (OSS), a provider of high performance computing GPU accelerators and NVMe flash arrays for a multitude of HPC applications, has introduced a new 2U Ion Accelerator Flash Storage Array. The new array offers flexible capacity while maintaining the high-bandwidth and low-latency pedigree of Ion Accelerator arrays deployed in hundreds of global installations. This OSS shared flash storage array boasts the latest Ion Accelerator 5.0 software, NVMe drives, networking options and dual Intel Xeon Scalable Processors to support the most demanding applications.
Multiple high-speed networking options allow this array to fit seamlessly into Fibre Channel (up to 32 Gbps), iSCSI (up to 100 Gbps) or InfiniBand (up to 100 Gbps) deployments. The capacity of the Ion Accelerator can be expanded up to 153 terabytes with 24 2.5" NVMe drives. High Availability (HA) is achieved using two arrays in a mirrored set-up.
The new version 5.0 for the Ion Accelerator software from OSS provides a complete all-flash storage solution that delivers cost-effective, near-native NVMe performance for data-intensive workloads. Ion Accelerator is designed to deliver consistent ultra-low latency and high bandwidth for the most performance-hungry applications used in information and financial services, health care, government, manufacturing, media and entertainment, and other major industries.
Offering bandwidth from a single storage box of 25GB/sec and latency well below 100 µs, Ion software is the ideal solution for delivering on the promise of NVMe flash performance in shared storage. Ion Accelerator has built-in data integrity in the software, with support for various RAID configurations, as well as a HA option that simultaneously accelerates performance for volumes across two systems.
"This newest release provides game-changing performance, density and fault tolerance", stated OSS Vice President of Engineering, Julia Elbert. "The low overhead with Ion Accelerator software allows systems to deliver near bare-metal performance from the latest NVMe technology flash drives, along with the reliability and data integrity required in mission-critical enterprise applications. With this fifth generation of Ion Accelerator software, existing appliance customers can also upgrade from legacy drives to modern NVMe with zero down time and no data migration costs using our Easy Migrate upgrade programme."
