For more than 18 years, DDN has designed, developed, deployed, and optimized systems, software, and solutions that enable enterprises, service providers, universities, and government agencies to generate more value and accelerate time to insight from their data and information, on premise and in the cloud. Whether accelerating all of a customer’s data-intensive applications and workflows or scaling performance and capacity, we’ve built DDN storage and solutions from the ground up to deliver future-proof efficiency and performance at scale.

Organizations leverage the power of DDN technology and the deep technical expertise of our team to collaborate and capture, store, process, analyze, and distribute data, information, and content at the largest scale in the most efficient, reliable, and cost-effective manner. Our customers include many of the world’s leading financial services firms and banks, healthcare and life-science organizations, manufacturing and energy companies, government and research facilities, and web and cloud service providers.


DDN and Intel partner on several high-performance storage solutions including DDN’s industry-leading high-performance storage platform, the SFA, the Lustre file system and custom Omni-Path development. DDN’s SFA14K™ /SFA14KE™ High Performance Block Storage (SFA14K) with Embedded Application Option (SFA14KE) and scale out file system appliances ES14K and GS14K support Omni-Path architecture.

The revolutionary DDN SFA14K is the highest performance block storage and hyper-converged platform in the industry today with an architecture that harnesses the power of the latest technologies, accelerates them with DDN high-performance software features and balances them to deliver the fastest performance with the lowest latency.

At 6 million IOPs and 60GB/sec from a single 4U appliance, the SFA14K is the fastest storage solution in the industry today, and is able to drive an unmatched number of SSD and spinning drives in the least amount of space, making it also the most dense storage solution on the market. This extreme level of density makes the SFA14K ideal for data centers with limited space, or any high-performance environment wanting to be able to expand capacity without adding the complexity of many appliances to manage and the cost of powering and cooling a large number of controllers.

Built on the SFA14KE platform, Scaler appliances use DDN’s own In-Storage Processing technology to embed a parallel file system – ES14K / Lustre – for a converged scale-out appliance that delivers 2 to 5x the density and up to 30x the performance of traditional scale-out NAS.
