StorONE Breaks Speed Record of 1.7 Million IOPS Using Only 24 SSD Commodity Drives


In benchmark testing with virtual environments, StorONE S1 storage
achieved 500,000 IOPS in a VMware ESXi Server with only two nodes

today announced results of benchmark testing featuring the StorONE S1
software-based enterprise storage solution running on a commodity 2U24
Flash Storage Platform JBOD with 24 commodity drives. The testing
achieved record-setting performance by attaining more speed per drive
than entire AFA arrays from competing solutions.

StorONE benchmarked the capabilities of S1 software to demonstrate high
performance using only two 2U off-the-shelf servers running in an HA
configuration with standard components and 24 commodity drives. The
results were exceptional: 1.7M IOPS for random reads, 15 GB/s sequential
reads, 7.5 GB/s sequential writes and 10 GB/s for a mixed workload of
80/20 reads/writes. By comparison, all-flash array competitors in the
market required at least 4 times the amount of hardware and expense to
deliver similar results.

The benchmark utilized four initiators: two 4x16Gb Fibre Channel and two
1X40GB iSCSI. The impressive results were attained with all enterprise
storage features turned on, and showed ultra-high performance and
ultra-low latency. The testing and subsequent results validate that
StorONE TRU™ Storage technology efficiency provides customers with the
best price/performance ratio among enterprise storage solutions
available today.

The software also supports virtual environments. In another benchmark
test, the S1 software running in a VMware ESXi Server with only two
nodes, achieved 500,000 IOPS with no altering of the AFA hardware. This
test demonstrated how to turbocharge storage performance in a virtual
environment simply by adding the StorONE software to commodity hardware.
The solution is ideal for accelerating enterprise workloads such as
database, virtualization and scale-out configurations all in a single
simple to use solution. The S1 virtual solution supports both internal
VMs and External iSCSI and Fibre Channel initiators, either ESXis or
physical machines.

StorONE's S1 TRU Storage efficiency technology can – for the first time
– extract the full performance of drives and deliver them directly to
the applications. No other enterprise storage solution can do this. With
complete data protection running in all of its implementations by
default, StorONE gives users the best possible performance and density
from their investment. StorONE provides revolutionary AFA SSD and NVMe
solutions, cost-effective high capacity with integrated backup
solutions, and a breakthrough virtual appliance, all in one solution.

"StorONE is the only enterprise storage vendor able to extract the full
spec out of the drives and deliver them to the applications achieving
70,000 IOPS per drive with very low latency," said Gal Naor,
CEO StorONE. "I'm very proud with our results as we are 5-10 times more
efficient compared to anyone else in the market. With StorONE users
finally get all the advantages of using less compute, buying less
hardware, and spending much less on integration and management. We are
able to give customers complete enterprise data protection features in a
comprehensive software solution while still achieving record speeds."
