About SolidFire Efficiencies

SolidFire provides a scale-out all-flash storage platform designed to deliver guaranteed storage performance to thousands of application workloads side-by-side, allowing consolidation under a single storage platform. The SolidFire system can be combined together over a 10Gb Ethernet network or 8/16 Gb FC clients in clusters ranging from 4 to 100 nodes.

The SolidFire primary storage solution scales up to 100 nodes, provides capacity from 35TB to 3.4PB, and can deliver between 200,000 and 7.5M guaranteed IOPS to more than 100,000 volumes / applications within a single system - increasing overall business productivity through consolidation, automation and granular scalability.

Systems at scale

Slide to scale out


* SolidFire's SF2405 / SF4805 / SF9605 / SF9010 storage system is scalable from 4 to 100 nodes. Groupings of 4, 20, 40, and 100 nodes are provided above as examples of system scale.

** Effective capacity benefits are calculated on an 4x average assuming deduplication, compression, thin provisioning and include SolidFire’s Helix data protection. Data reduction benefits have no upper limit and will vary by workload.

Schedule Demo

*SolidFire’s usable capacity is based on efficiencies gained from global compression and deduplication and include full data redundancy from SolidFire’s Helix data protection. On average SolidFire customers realize a 2x increase from compression and an added 2x of efficiency from deduplication. Effective capacity includes thin provisioning in the calculation resulting in an additional 2x capacity benefit. Data reduction benefits have no upper limit and will vary by workload.
