Chelsio Communications, a provider of 10Gb Ethernet unified wire adapters and ASICs, has launched Unified Storage Server (USS) software version 3.0, expanding on the features that enable enhanced performance, availability and scalability for data centres, cloud and HPC storage applications.
The USS software has been on display at Storage Networking World Spring in Orlando, USA, with a demonstration of the new caching engine capability in action, increasing iSCSI IOPs by an order of magnitude.
The new and enhanced features of USS 3.0 include:
- RAM caching and SSD caching;
- Performance enhancements in thin provisioning;
- Support for Lustre file system in HA mode; and
- iSCSI boot DHCP Server support.
'The Chelsio Unified Storage Server software enables impressive storage performance of over 2 million IOPs at a very economical price point, which should provide significant traction for the continued growth of iSCSI-based storage,' said Saqib Jang, principal and founder, Margalla Communications.
'This is an ideal solution for resellers and integrators looking to build powerful and low-cost storage configurations.'
