Technical computing company SGI has introduced its InfiniteStorage 5600 product – a next-generation, high-performance storage platform suited to high-performance computing and Big Data workloads.
Using modular architecture, SGI says the IS5600 delivers industry-leading performance, allowing customers to achieve extreme performance requirements while reducing their investment in hardware.
SGI says the IS5600 controller adds significantly increased performance, with flexible architecture allowing customers to tune the systems to their specific performance and capacity requirements. In data-intensive industries such as manufacturing, media, life sciences and earth sciences, such performance and efficiency are key requirements.
'SGI customers are constantly pushing the edge of performance requirements for storage arrays,' said Bill Mannel, vice president of product marketing at SGI. 'The flexibility of the IS5600 platform and the choices it offers enable these users to push the limit without breaking their budget.'
Storage platforms in today’s IT environments need to reliably house data and have the modular flexibility and performance choices to tightly match application and solutions needs. To enable the maximum flexibility for a wide range of applications, according to SGI, the IS5600 can intermix multiple drive types and enclosure densities – ranging from 4TB high capacity drives to extreme performance SSDs in a single, scalable system.
