IBM is now offering new versions of its High IOPS Modular Adapters family, based on LSI Nytro WarpDrive technology. The new models join IBM’s growing stable of PCIe Flash cards and are designed to be used with the IBM System x server series to help clients speed Big Data analytics.
LSI Nytro WarpDrive adapters are aimed at providing ultra-low-latency, high-performance storage for data-intensive applications while helping cloud and enterprise datacenters shrink storage footprint and energy costs.
The IBM High IOPS Modular Adapters based on LSI Nytro WarpDrive technology support capacity options ranging from 300GB to 800GB of SLC and MLC Flash memory for IBM System x servers.
LSI Nytro WarpDrive adapters aim to deliver:
- IOPS performance of hundreds of hard disks with a single server;
- Enterprise-class flash performance, reliability and endurance from LSI SandForce Flash Storage Processors with DuraClass technology;
- Storage power, cooling and physical footprint savings, reducing total cost of ownership;
- Minimal CPU burden; and
- Broad compatibility with existing infrastructures through use of standard drivers featuring extensive operating system and management support.
