InfiniFlash ™ System IF150All-Flash Storage System for Big DataWith the growth of mobile, social, Big Data, and the Internet of Things, the quantity and variety of data has skyrocketed. The InfiniFlash System from SanDisk® has been designed around the data storage requirements of an increasingly mobile workforce, social media, Big Data and analytics - while being targeted for hyperscale and cloud workloads. These workloads are also evolving and demanding massive scalability, extremely high levels of availability, and an agility in how IT resources are allocated and used. The InfiniFlash System IF150 - the newest member of the InfiniFlash family - delivers double the IOPS performance of the previous system via upgraded 12Gbps SAS connectivity. These new performance levels bring the advantages of the InfiniFlash product family to a wider variety of applications, including high-performance computing (HPC) workloads.Flash Innovation for New WorkloadsThe InfiniFlash all-flash storage system empowers large-scale infrastructure and data center architects to deliver massive scale-out storage solutions. Stemming from decades of research and proven industry-leading SanDisk flash solutions, the InfiniFlash System builds a path to next-generation software-defined storage architectures capable of supporting workloads with instant access to petabytes of data. The Performance of Flash - The Economics of Traditional StorageInfiniFlash provides effective dollar-per-gigabyte costs that are only slightly higher than those of traditional storage systems and total cost of ownership (TCO) that is as much as 80% lower. Before InfiniFlash, conventional flash, even with cost-reducing technologies such as deduplication and compression, has just not been inexpensive enough to consider for use in many storage environments. Up to five times the density, minimizing the physical rack space required Up to five times the power efficiency, reducing both power and cooling costs Up to ten times greater reliability, ensuring lower downtime and reduced maintenance costs Best Value, Best Time to Insight Data delivers value only when insights can be extracted; maximum value requires rapid time to insight. InfiniFlash Systems reduce the processing time for big data from weeks to hours. Compared to older technologies, the all-flash solution avoids complexity and scales to optimally extract value from the largest cloud and hyperscale environments. Rack-scale consolidation of storage enables TCO benefits through IT consolidation and independent growth of compute tailored to application requirements.Designed for use with web-scale applications, InfiniFlash also includes development libraries for direct application integration, enabling advanced functions like triggers, message passing, and in situ data transformations. Although InfiniFlash can be used off-the-shelf at first release with block- or object-based applications, an included SDK enables customers to optimize their applications for use with InfiniFlash to obtain even better performance, efficiency, and TCO benefits if so desired.
