XIO means performance-driven storage. Our Hyper ISE storage system represents a breakthrough in price/performance/capacity ratios that literally changes the economics of the data center. This name change represents our new focus, revolutionary products, and our role as a category leader. Hyper ISE is the only storage system that combines SSD and HDD, and can achieve 200,000 IOPS. And you get this performance in a 3U, 14.4 TB storage system. That is a lot of power in a small package.
SSD storage systems are more expensive on a per GB basis. Traditional HDD storage systems are more expensive on a per IOPS basis. And adding SSDs into these systems isn’t really going to lower the cost or improve performance all that much.
Instead of spending hundreds of thousands—and, in some cases, millions—of dollars on big data platforms and accelerators, our customers are using Hyper ISE to improve database performance for a fraction of the cost. Customers successfully implement VDI with up to thousands of virtual desktops running on a single Hyper ISE. And we enable server virtualization 2.0 by breaking the I/O bottleneck, enabling customers to achieving up to 50-to-1 virtual to physical consolidations ratios.
We can no longer ignore the power, cooling, and floor space challenges of the data center. Hyper ISE’s design allows it to efficiently dissipate heat. And, because we use far fewer disk drives to achieve high performance, our power consumption is far less than other storage systems. Add to that the additional floor space savings you get thanks to our compact footprint.
Hyper ISE is fast forever. Performance in other storage systems degrades in over time due to wear and tear, RAID rebuilds, and mirroring operations. Hyper ISE was built to maintain high performance through its entire life cycle while other storage systems fall off a cliff. That is a dirty little secret in the storage world that is rarely talked about.
Our name means performance. XIO.
