2U24 Flash Storage Platform

Designed for Software-Defined Storage (SDS) Systems

OVERVIEW

Designed for Enterprise and Cloud Storage


The 2U24 Flash Storage Platform is a key element of next-generation Software-Defined Storage (SDS) systems. The platform balances high performance with capacity, delivering high IOPS with low latency at up to 184TB capacity.

By decoupling available storage from CPU resources, the platform offers the flexibility to improve the compute-to-capacity ratio. The 2U24 Flash Storage Platform addresses the demanding storage needs of large enterprises and cloud service providers requiring dense, shared flash storage.

Disclosures

1.

One MB is equal to one million bytes, one GB is equal to one billion bytes, and one TB equals 1,000GB (one trillion bytes) when referring to storage capacity. Accessible capacity will vary from the stated capacity due to formatting and partitioning of the drives, the operating system and other factors.

2.

Based on internal testing results or projections. Results and performance may vary according to system adoption, configuration and broader system architecture.
