"Working together with architects from STEC, DataON Storage evaluated an all-flash storage solution that yielded an unprecedented 16GB/s sustained throughput featuring 48 2TB STEC s840 enterprise SAS SSDs within two DataON DNS-1640 external storage JBODs," said William Huang, vice president of sales, DataON Storage. "These high-throughput results show the true performance advantage of the STEC s840 drives and are especially valuable for accelerating I/O-intensive applications in industries such as the oil and gas, financial-services and government markets.""As the solid-state drive market continues to evolve and expand, it's imperative that businesses find the right combination of performance, capacity, reliability, and endurance," said Jeff Janukowicz, research director for solid-state storage at IDC. "A full breadth of SSD solutions that fit multiple use cases and applications are a strong addition to the market, particularly in combination with caching software that can fully utilize the SSDs high capacity and performance." The newest member of STEC's s800 Series SAS SSDs, the versatile 2TB s840 drive works seamlessly with existing enterprise storage infrastructures. The s840 appears to any system or RAID controller as a standard drive that can be managed by existing storage management tools, delivering true plug-and-play architecture. The 2TB s840's proprietary controller allows the product to support 12 to 25 percent greater capacity than other SAS SSD on the market. The drive's PowerSafe™ Technology protects against unscheduled power outages, a critical requirement for rapidly growing, data-intensive market segments, including cloud computing, data centers and large scale Internet properties. The 2TB s1120, which establishes a new level in capacity for the STEC s1100 Series PCIe Accelerators, improves data access without expanding hardware footprints and operational costs, uses extremely low power, and provides high performance and endurance. Its low power consumption --- less than 25W – is essential to hyper-scale data centers, in which every Watt is critical. The s1120 PCIe Accelerator enables multiple SSDs to be deployed on a single server and features data-protection functions such as PowerSafe technology that ensure that data is not lost in the event of power failure. The 2TB s1120 card is ideal for accelerating applications such as big data, data analytics, statistical analysis and modeling, and video imaging, editing and sharing.
