64TB all-flash storage array ‘can replace hard drives’

Violin Memory’s new offering claims to span gap between costs of solid state drives and spinning disks media.

By Joe Curtis

All-flash storage company Violin Memory has claimed to be shortening the distance between the costs of solid state drive (SSD) and spinning disks media with its latest offering.

Its 6264 flash memory array fits 64TB of flash memory into a 3U rack-mount chassels.

Violin claims that this storage system delivers twice the density and three times the economics of its predecessor as well as significantly reducing power consumption.

The new array is based on Toshiba’s latest generation of 19nm flash technology, which Violin claims means the product is capable of delivering the performance with the necessary reliability to replace traditional hard drives.

CEO of Violin Memory, Don Basile, said: "Competitive architectural approaches based on SSDs short change the actual performance capabilities of flash memory.

"As semiconductor process geometries shrink, flash memory gets slower and more error-prone. Violin’s unique flash management IP enables us to increase performance and capacity in the same footprint while ensuring the data resiliency required in Tier One enterprise storage deployments.

"Our goal is to deliver memory storage at the cost of legacy disk."
