E8 Storage is a leader in the new categories of storage referred to as “rack-scale flash” and “Generation Two Flash”. The term “rack-scale flash” means that a single storage platform can provide centralized NVMe* SSD storage to an entire rack of servers - typically found in Hyperscale data centers. “Generation Two Flash” describes the next generation of flash storage vendors that are producing products much faster than the first wave of flash, which were disk replacement systems based an older SAS based SSDs. Generation Two Flash systems are designed to centralize the provisioning of SSD based storage instead of stranded islands of internal storage. This is where E8 Storage, using the next-generation dual-port NVMe* SSDs from Intel®, will provide tremendous value.
The E8 Storage D24 solution provides amazing performance (up to 10M IOPS in a 2U form factor), low latency (40us writes/ 100us reads), and enterprise class storage features such as controller and path failover (made possible by using Intel® dual-port SSDs), thin provisioning (of both capacity and performance), QoS, Cinder support and a Rest-API. The E8 Storage system also supports RAID6, protecting against multiple SSD failures, which coupled with Intel dual-port DC D3700 SSDs, provides the most cost effective and reliable centralized NVMe storage solution on the market. E8 Storage is actually the only vendor supporting Intel dual-port NVMe SSDs that also supports RAID6 and 10M IOPS in a 2U chassis.
E8 Storage provides better speed than local SAS SSDs; performance on par with internal NVMe SSDs; and the reliability of an enterprise class centralized storage array. This makes E8 Storage the perfect solution for speed critical applications – such as high-speed analytics, machine learning, and financial/trade analysis.
A good example of the value proposition that the E8 Storage system provides is detailed in a recent case study that can be found on the E8 Storage website at www.e8storage.com. It tells the story of a customer that provides a high-speed analytics platform to over five-hundred end users. Prior to E8 Storage, the only storage solution that could provide the speed their application needed were internal SAS SSDs placed in each server. When the customer needed to grow their database, they were faced with an expensive server upgrade (to support the extra SSDs needed). However, via the centralized NVMe storage solution provided by E8 Storage, the problem of storage growth while maintaining the same performance was solved.
