- Innovations include deduplication that is always on, and always inline
- Data protection that is 6x more efficient and 4x faster than traditional RAID
EMC Corporation has announced the general availability of the XtremIO, an all-flash that it claims sprovide consistent and predictable extreme performance to any application workload over any period of time, regardless of whether the array is idle or busy, empty or full.
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.
