SanDisk Platinum Partner logoSanDisk Corporation have announced that they are forming a strategic alliance with Supermicro to deliver software defined all-flash storage solutions.

As a global leader in flash storage solutions, the partnership furthers SanDisk’s commitment to drive innovation and deliver all-flash extreme performance and massive capacity to today’s data centres.

Supermicro is a global leader in Green Computing solutions for the data centre, cloud and enterprise and its leading high-performance servers join SanDisk’s InfiniFlash System – a high capacity and extreme performance flash-based storage system – to form the core of this collaboration.

The joint solution aligns with the growth of disaggregated data centres propelled by Big Data and cloud environments. It will be made available with Nexenta’s flagship Open SDS unified file and block storage platform and the NexentaStor platform.

The Nexenta Software, coupled with the Supermicro and InfiniFlash IF100 System brings proven latency storage functionality to enterprise and cloud customers, for workloads such as file, print, cloud backend and general shared virtual infrastructure.

The all-flash joint solution provides data centre customers with a pre-tested, full-featured, cost-effective, high-performance system for addressing today’s increasing challenges. Able to scale up to four petabyte configurations, it delivers the industry’s best value for high-performance, mature, unified block and file services featuring ultra-low and consistent sub-millisecond response times and more than 8 million flash IOPS in a rack.

Ravi Swaminathan, Vice President and General Manager, System and Software Solutions at SanDisk, said: “Our partnership with Supermicro and Nexenta brings the best of both worlds to data centres: breakthrough economics compared to traditional all-flash array deployments, and dramatically higher performance, improved reliability and lower power consumption compared to hard disk drive-based arrays. These offerings will enable customers to economically deploy flash at petabyte-scale, which will drive business growth through new services and offerings for their end-customers.”
