Solid Data StorageSPIRE is a managed array of SSDs providing up to a terabyte of Fibre Channel-connected, ultra low latency, non-volatile storage. The StorageSPIRE SSD array is a direct replacement for high end rotating RAID arrays or an alternative to in-server-memory systems, and can be direct-connected or used as a shared device when deployed on a SAN.
Used in high transaction rate applications they eliminate the mechanical delays of rotating disk drives, allowing conventional servers to perform 10 or more times the number of transactions per second. Because of their immediate response to read or write commands, they eliminate large server queues; thus, dramatically improving server stability and response times during peak periods. Systems built around StorageSPIRE arrays use less than half the power of conventional disk or in-server-memory architectures.
The system's advanced design provides persistent, nonvolatile data retention and easy configuration with standard device drivers. Designed with 4 Gigabit data paths and up to 8 Fibre Channel connections, StorageSPIRE provides path failover or active/active multipathing via Veritas DMP, and supports direct-connect, arbitrated loop and switched fabric mode configurations with 500 Gigabytes to one Terabyte of high-performance data capacity per enclosure. A powerful remote management system allows reporting and management of the entire array from a single local or Webconnected user interface.
