SolidFire Introduces Version 7 of its Element OS

SolidFire introduced Version 7 of its Element OS, named Nitrogen, as it continues to broaden its footprint within enterprise-class data centers. Building upon six previous versions of Element OS’s full enterprise feature set, Version 7 Nitrogen continues to deliver completely non-disruptive upgrades. Nitrogen introduced significant new functionality including multi-tenant networking and snapshot consistency groups, along with a series of usability features that deliver flexibility for consolidating a broad mix of application workloads. At the heart of SolidFire’s robust non-disruptive upgrade process is its Shared-Nothing High-Availability Architecture. Unique among all-flash arrays, SolidFire’s high-availability design has enabled thousands of in-field, in-production upgrades without disruption to data access or compromise of SolidFire’s guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities. No downtime, data migration or planned outages are ever required when upgrading the SolidFire storage platform, and Nitrogen is no exception. Calligo, one of SolidFire’s very first customers, has run its entire offshore cloud infrastructure worldwide on SolidFire since the all-flash scale-out platform went into general availability in November 2012. The Nitrogen release of Element OS adds to SolidFire's ranking as the #1 Solid-State Array, further enhancing consolidation, automation and data protection capabilities which include, multi-tenant networking - With Nitrogen’s VLAN-based multi-tenant networking functionality, SolidFire enhances customers’ ability to separate individual customer or business unit traffic for security, auditing and fault isolation use cases.

MercadoLibre Selects SolidFire All-Flash Scale-Out Storage Platform

SolidFire announced that MercadoLibre has selected SolidFire to power its OpenStack-based private cloud and serve its online community of over 550 million buyers and sellers. MercadoLibre faced several challenges with its previous scale-up storage infrastructure which impaired its ability to scale without disruption and offer required levels of capacity and performance. The problem was most acute with its MySQL and MongoDB databases, which suffered from slow, unpredictable performance. MercadoLibre's IT department also had trouble balancing workloads within its storage environment and were unable to provide consistent and balanced latency for every IO within its multi-tenant infrastructure. SolidFire's all-flash scale-out platform solved MercadoLibre's storage challenges by delivering non-disruptive linear scalability of both capacity and performance. Its unique guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS) technology enabled MercadoLibre to significantly reduce latency within MySQL and MongoDB databases from 50 to 2 milliseconds. The SolidFire platform integrated seamlessly with MercadoLibre's existing OpenStack private cloud, and decreased its data footprint by 6.5 times, along with significant space and power savings.
