Virident Systems, Inc. Announces 4.8 TB FlashMAX Capacity Card

Virident Systems, Inc. announced that it is breaking the capacity barrier for low-profile PCIe flash cards. The company's low-profile form factor 4.8 TB FlashMAX Capacity card further pushes the limits of usable capacity in a single device and will drive new levels of consolidation of the data center, making it ideal for web-scale and other environments requiring the maximum usable capacity. By more than doubling the density of its existing industry-leading product FlashMAX II, along with the combination of its FlashMAX Connect software suite, Virident is leading the flash platform transformation. Virident has combined the same features found in its FlashMAX II card, such as sustainable and predictable performance and flash-aware RAID, with the ability to present a single 4.8 TB device to applications. With the capacity of disk and the performance of flash, FlashMAX Capacity provides substantial CAPEX and OPEX benefits, making it ideal for the most demanding applications. The 4.8 TB FlashMAX Capacity model will be available in the second half of the fourth quarter of 2013. FlashMAX Connect Suite extends the FlashMAX family of products and functionality with the following features: High Availability: vHA enables high-performance/low-latency synchronous replication that copies writes from one server to another, providing storage node or sever failover without affecting application and data availability; Shared Storage Management: vShare enables access to flash-aware partitions of a remote PCIe flash. This allows customers to share the storage residing on remote servers and thereby scale PCIe flash capacity independently of compute. The result is tremendous flexibility and shareability, so a single PCIe flash card can service multiple servers depending on the needs of the application; Data Management: vCache enables construction of transparent-performance cache devices that include write-back, write-through and write-around cache and thus deliver higher performance and better endurance. By adding a FlashMAX II device and vCache to the infrastructure customers can get the performance of a PCIe flash while leveraging existing SAN/NAS investments.
