SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF., June 19, 2012
SolidFire, a provider of all-solid-state (SSD) primary storage systems for cloud service providers, announced today the release of the SolidFire SF6010. The SF6010 is a new addition to the company's product line that helps cloud providers reach a broader set of customer applications. This larger system has twice the capacity of the SF3010, offering cloud service providers more resources to allocate across a larger set of tenant applications. The company will be introducing the new system at GigaOM Structure, June 20-21, 2012, in San Francisco, Calif.
The SF6010 node has a raw capacity of 6 TB and an effective capacity of 24 TB when considering SolidFire's use of in-line deduplication, compression, and thin provisioning. SolidFire storage systems are capable of scaling out to 100 nodes, and, with the SF6010, cloud providers are now able to create high-density single-instance storage environments of 2.4 PB and 5 million IOPS. The SF6010 is available as part of the SolidFire Early Access Program.
"The SolidFire technology is designed to advance the way the world uses the cloud. The release of the SF6010 allows us to address a wider market segment and enables cloud providers to deliver guaranteed storage resources to a larger set of applications in their cloud," said Jay Prassl, vice president of marketing at SolidFire. "We strive to support the largest SSD capacities commonly available and continue to drive performance and capacity improvements into the product. This allows us to deliver the best price/performance value proposition to our customers."
SolidFire came out of stealth mode at last year's Structure conference. A few months later, the company launched its Early Access Program for cloud service providers.
