Voltaire Introduces RapidStorage Appliance™ With Supermicro

Voltaire Ltd. (NASDAQ: VOLT), a leading provider of scale-out data center fabrics, today announced a new solution with Supermicro that delivers ultra-fast, scalable and cost-effective storage for high performance clusters. The Voltaire-Supermicro RapidStorage Appliance™ is a building block for massively scalable high performance storage systems that can deliver millions of I/O operation per second (IOPS) and hundreds of Gigabytes/second (GB/s) with 100X faster access time than traditional storage systems.

The RapidStorage Appliance consists of Supermicro high-density Double-Sided Storage™ servers and Voltaire Storage Accelerator™ (VSA™) software. Using Voltaire’s high-speed 10GbE or InfiniBand switches, multiple appliances can be interconnected to form a highly scalable and unified system with dozens of high-speed links serving data to clients in parallel at rates that are several orders of magnitudes faster than most existing storage systems.

In a recent benchmark test at a large financial services institution, a cluster of five VSA-powered appliances delivered 2.5 million IOPS and 30 GB/s of sustained traffic, with access times of 70 microseconds, significantly outperforming most high-end storage systems, and at a fraction of the cost.

The solution is available through select Supermicro and Voltaire resellers and VARs.

“Storage I/O bottlenecks present a major challenge for high performance, data-intensive environments that, until now, required big IT budgets to attempt to eliminate them,” said Asaf Somekh, vice president of marketing, Voltaire. “With the Voltaire-Supermicro RapidStorage Appliance, customers can finally get incredibly fast storage access and colossal scalability at a reasonable price point.”

“This solution presents a major advancement in high-performance storage and enables customers to deploy petabytes of fast storage in just a few racks,” said Tau Leng, PhD, General Manager of Marketing and HPC solutions at Supermicro. “Our SC417 Double-Sided Storage™ features exceptional density and accessibility, which enables the RapidStorage Appliance to not only deliver excellent performance, but also offer a unique solution to the storage market.”
