Virident launches server-side storage platform

Brings together technologies for build-out of server-side Tier-0 storage across an data centre

By CBR Staff Writer

Virident has introduced tachIOn solid state disk (SSD), a new server-side storage platform that claims to enable customers to tackle data intensive applications with lower cost, higher and predictable performance, and enterprise class reliability.

The company claims that the new storage platform delivers performance level that is 2-10x higher, even for random I/O. It comes with error correction, advanced capacity management, and global wear-leveling to assure durability and consistent performance.

According to Virident, the new SSD comes in compact half-size/half-length profile that maximises density and allows it to fit in 1U or 2U servers. It is available in 200, 300, or 400GB of usable capacity per card.

Virident said that tachIOn also brings together the necessary hardware and software technologies for a systematic build-out of server-side Tier-0 storage across an entire data centre.

Dubbed the Virident GreenCloud Storage Software, the new capability will be released in phases to enable large-scale deployment of SSDs, which until now has been hampered by capacity fragmentation and inconsistent availability of SSD resources to apps that need them, the company added.

Kumar Ganapathy, CEO of Virident Systems, said: "tachIOn is faster, more reliable, and offers better economics than competition. We are excited to see an excellent level of market reception to our vision and an excellent level of customer acceptance of our products. Even at full capacity, tachIOn delivers high predictable performance!"
