CAMBERLEY, England, October 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
AlwaysOn Company of the Year introduces a new standard in enterprise storage and pledges to accelerate business-critical applications and deliver significant cost reductions at IPExpo 2011, Stand D11
Violin Memory, provider of the world's fastest and most scalable Memory Arrays, is introducing its 6000 Series flash Memory Arrays to the European market today, at IPExpo 2011. The company, launching with European headquarters in Camberley, UK, is also challenging the industry to dramatically increase performance and simultaneously see significant Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) reductions.
Violin is driving a game-changing TCO model within the enterprise with 10x savings as an achievable goal. Its challenge to the market and enterprise-class customers will demonstrate how new storage solutions can drastically reduce data storage operating costs, whilst simultaneously delivering unmatched levels of performance.
The company has outlined a series of questions that enterprises should be asking of their data centers, detailing higher levels of expectation around bandwidth, capacity, processing time, latency, cost, utilisation, and storage/carbon footprint. These include:
- 10x improvements to bandwidth and IOPS, 10 million IOPS and 40 GB/sec of bandwidth per industry standard rack
- 10x latency reduction, read and write respond in micro rather than milliseconds
- applications performing up to 2-5x faster
- up to 10m transactions per second from a single 19" rack
- increased server utilization by 75%
- storage footprint, carbon footprint and power consumption reductions of 75%-90%
"Violin Memory is entering the European market with something fundamentally new to say to CIOs about storage performance and economics," said Garry Veale, MD EMEA, at Violin Memory. "By focusing beyond performance and addressing critical enterprise requirements such as high availability, serviceability, and cost of ownership, we aim to demonstrate that the future of storage within the Global 2000 is Flash Memory Arrays."
Violin's Memory Arrays are changing the data center for companies like AOL, Revlon and Microsoft through its patent-pending flash vRAID technology. This advanced technology was used by IBM to shatter the existing General Parallel File System (GPFS) world record, and by HP to set new TPC-E and TPC-C industry-leading server benchmarks.
