SolidFire systems leverage a scale-out storage architecture that enables customers to achieve linear scale of both capacity and performance without downtime or performance impact.

At full scale (100 nodes) SolidFire's scale-out architecture natively delivers the largest and fastest all-flash storage system, designed for the Next Generation Data Center.
Only SolidFire delivers the capability to allocate and manage all-flash storage performance independent of capacity. This patent-pending Quality of Service (QoS) control empowers you to:
SolidFire's management frameworks provides both an intuitive web-based user interface as well as a robust REST-based API capable of automating every aspect of storage provisioning, management, and reporting. In addition, SolidFire storage management capabilities have been integrated with OpenStack, CloudStack, Flexiant, and OnApp frameworks enabling native performance management.
SolidFire's scale-out architecture natively supports in-line data reduction without performance impact. Block-level de-duplication, compression, thin-provisioning reduce data footprints by 4 - 10x or more. While other storage architectures lack data reduction entirely — or require it be turned off for maximum performance — SolidFire's always-on data reduction provides significantly more usable capacity while eliminating hot-spots and performance vs. capacity trade-offs.
