Enterprise customers need efficient and reliable storage solutions to manage their intensive I/O data traffic with the lowest latency possible. Enterprise applications running on virtual machines typically multi-access huge raw files and often experience boot storm traffic congestion. These are some of the challenges IT administrators face in a modern virtualized IT environment. NeoSapphire Professional All-Flash series Arrays (AFAs) are designed to meet these challenges and dramatically improve business operations with ultra-high performance and ultra-low latency with a rich set of software features in a very flexible choice of different capacity configurations.
AccelStor offers a wide range of storage options in 1U and 2U space-saving form factors. Our NeoSapphire Professional AFAs are perfect solutions for providing a smooth and dependable storage platform that significantly improves business and IT operations. In today’s world typical database storage requires a capacity ranging between 1 to 5TB. Our Professional series models offer flexible capacity options that range between 17TB to 110TB physical storage (85 to 550TB effective) to meet all types of usage scenarios and associated budgets for optimum management of corporate financial resources.
NeoSapphire Professional arrays deliver very high performance at ultra low latency levels that range from 360K IOPS to 730K write IOPS. We support mainstream connectivity protocols such 10GbE Ethernet and 16GB Fibre Channel as well as 56G FDR InfiniBand for lab or research environments. You have the choice of 10GbE or FC transport connectivity for your environment. We are also working on 25/100GbE options in our next software release for our next generation Hardware and we have PCIe 4.0 on our 36 month RoadMap.
Enterprises require dependable solutions for protecting and backing up data. With the support of snapshot and snapshot backup features, our NeoSapphire Professional AFAs can take up to 2048 copies of data for future restoration purposes in the case of accidental data loss. By using redirect-on-write snapshot, the storage system saves two-thirds more I/O loading as compared with copy-on-write snapshots that other storage manufacturers may use. Thanks to FlexiRemap’s built-in 2(N+1) proprietary algorithm, NeoSapphire Professional AFAs ensure data is stored with a very high level of Data integrity. With these invaluable protection tools, NeoSapphire AFAs are guaranteed to run smoothly with any Enterprise applications.
Free Clone is a technology developed by AccelStor that uses no additional storage space. By using logical volume implementation when copying a LUN, NeoSapphire Professional AFAs do not use any physical space, only the pointer to the original LUN location. This operation does not use any useable storage capacity as a result. For enterprise customers, saving storage space means saving cost. Free Clone also enables simpler deployment and system management for IT administrators which results in better overall productivity.
AccelStor provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, especially for the VMware platform. NeoSapphire Professional AFAs offload storage operations by using VAAI block implementation, providing an optimized user experience under VDI applications. AccelStor has developed a NeoSapphire management plug-in for the VMware vSphere® Web Client with which hypervisors can perform NeoSapphire AFA volume management tasks. This plug-in is a very useful tool for virtualization users.
