NextIO launches storage solution at NAB

MUMBAI: NextIO announced the release of vSTOR S100, the first flash storage array designed to consolidate and dynamically reallocate Tier 0 storage across servers, at the NAB show.

Utilising ioMemory technology from Fusion-io, the vSTOR S100 achieves a capacity of five Terabytes (TB) and over 1.7M IOPS performance, delivering the industry‘s best flash performance at a price per capacity that is 50 per cent less than similar solutions.
vSTOR S100 achieves this in under 300 watts, which is also lower than competing solutions when measured in watts/TB.

The company says that the vStor S100 adaptive application accelerator represents a paradigm shift in the functionality and design of flash storage arrays. By utilising NextIO‘s vConnect I/O virtualization switching technology, vStor can dynamically reallocate flash storage between servers, eliminating the over-provisioning of Tier 0 storage that occurs with dedicated flash cards or existing flash arrays.

This capability allows users to optimise their Tier 0 storage expenditures while providing large amounts of on-demand high-speed flash when applications need it, enabling customers to use flash application acceleration where it was previously cost-prohibitive.

By accelerating applications on existing servers, vSTOR S100 also eliminates the need for system administrators to spread applications over multiple servers, which typically results in over-provisioning of both servers and the storage attached to the servers. 
Storage Strategies Now founder and principal analyst Deni Connor says, "Over-provisioning of the server results in more complex server farms and infrastructure. Using large numbers of high-performance, short-stroked drives to achieve the best possible storage performance results in very expensive, highly over-provisioned storage arrays. Virtualised storage solutions are the answer to a physically efficient data center that can run multiple applications with fewer servers, while reducing the total cost of ownership.
