PRESS RELEASE

InfiniteStorage 17000

SGI has announced the release of SGI InfiniteStorage 17000 for extreme data volumes, high-performance computing (HPC) and data-intensive real-time workloads. With throughput of over 40GB/s and 1.4 million flash IOPS, this single-platform RAID storage system has the ability to scale to more than 1,680 disk drives and 6.72PB.

InfiniteStorage 17000 delivers what the company says is leading storage access density. It supports up to 160 dedicated 6GB SAS lanes and significantly greater storage access density than competing systems, aggregating and maximising the performance of performance-intensive SSD devices to enable customers to avoid expensive PCIe-based approaches to Flash-based application acceleration. With FDR InfiniBand and Fibre Channel connectivity, the system is designed to fit into existing storage landscapes and scale file storage systems to 1TB/s and beyond.
