By Digital News Asia December 3, 2013
- Innovations include deduplication that is always on, and always inline
- Data protection that is 6x more efficient and 4x faster than traditional RAID
To achieve this, EMC XtremIO features several unique flash innovations: A scale-out multicontroller architecture with linear scalability; deduplication that is always on, and always inline; data protection that is six times more efficient and four times faster than traditional RAID, the company said in a statement.
EMC XtremIO is architected differently from any other all-flash array, EMC said, with four key technologies: Content-Based Data Placement; Dual-Stage Metadata Engine; XtremIO Data Protection (XDP); and Shared In-Memory Metadata.
“Flash continues to be a major disruptive force – and an incredible market opportunity in storage,” said C.J. Desai, president of the Emerging Technology Products Division at EMC.
“There is an insatiable appetite for performance, driven by next-generation data centre workloads in both physical and virtual environments. EMC’s strategy is to leverage flash technology across the entire storage infrastructure with a best-of-breed product portfolio that allows us to deliver customers choice.
“With XtremIO, we’re delivering this fast growing market with a specialised solution that delivers ‘more’ – more consistent and predictable performance, more scale, more integration and more data services.
“And most importantly, we’re doing this on a fundamentally better architecture, which will allow us to easily deliver even more value-added features over time,” he said.
