InfiniFlash System IF150, along with Red Hat Ceph Storage software, delivers a massive scale-out, high-performance, all-flash storage system that provides boundless scale, efficiency, and resiliency for Ceph and OpenStack environments.
With the growth of mobile, social, big data, and the Internet of Things (IoT), the quantity and variety of data has skyrocketed. SanDisk’s InfiniFlash™ System IF150, along with Red Hat® Ceph Storage software, delivers a massive scale-out, high-performance, all-flash storage system that provides boundless scale, efficiency, and resiliency for Ceph and OpenStack environments.
The InfiniFlash™ System IF150 provides petabyte-scale capacity, high density and performance for OpenStack® and Ceph environments, and delivers dramatic cost advantages for customers with big data storage requirements. The IF150 delivers the performance of an all-flash array with the economics of an HDD-based system. It is the ideal storage choice for medium to large OpenStack deployments, providing very low latency, extreme IOPS, and sustained throughput.
Each system can be configured with up to 64 hot-swappable cards, delivering up to half a petabyte (512TB1) of raw flash storage in a 3U enclosure and up to 6PB in a single rack. The IF150 scales easily as each unit may connect up to eight servers. The Ceph cluster software provides high availability, load balancing, data replication and storage services required by OpenStack solutions.
Red Hat Ceph Storage
Red Hat Ceph Storage is a massively scalable storage platform that uses Red Hat Enterprise Linux® as its underlying operating system. Red Hat Ceph Storage helps businesses to automatically and cost-effectively manage their storage needs, allowing enterprises to focus on data availability. It scales across physical, virtual, and cloud resources, and allows organizations to add capacity as needed without sacrificing performance or necessitating vendor lock-in.
Red Hat Ceph Storage is offered on the IF150—the latest InfiniFlash storage system. Together, SanDisk and Red Hat have worked to bring Ceph storage with unsurpassed performance, providing over a million Inputs/Outputs per second (IOPS).
