RAID, Inc. Launches High-Performance Unified Storage Platform

To provide end-to-end high-performance customized solutions for the high-performance computing (HPC) marketplace, RAID, Inc. has launched a new scalable unified storage platform that can provide lowest price-to-performance ratio in the marketplace.

RAID, Inc.’s latest offering is a unified, scalable structured storage solution, which can consolidate file and block-based access in a single storage platform.

Powered by IBM’s (News - Alert) General Parallel File System (GPFS), the new storage solution provides support for various SAN and network topologies.

Apart from offering the HPC industry’s lowest price-to-performance ratio, the new unified storage platform can simultaneously enable the storage of file data, and handle the block-based I/O and file system journaling.

The solution incorporates and illustrates features of the unified storage model – including replication for disaster recovery, high availability and failover – by offering virtually any performance that customers want with ease in administration and maintenance.

Apart from delivering sustained performance and scalability, it is easily configurable for a variety of applications that demand either performance in IOPs or bandwidth.

Key capabilities of the new storage solution include provisioning of parallel file systems, file exports (NFS/CIFS/GFS), clustered NFS, replication, snapshots, RAID, volume copy, a single global namespace and information lifecycle management (ILM) functions.

According to RAID, the new storage solution for the HPC market place has been provided with several configuration options, each of which are scalable and can be configured for specific high-throughput storage requirements and applications within the high performance computing framework and architecture.

Bob Picardi, CEO at RAID Inc., said in a statement, "The solution also provides the lowest price-to-performance ratio in the marketplace today, which can scale for performance and capacity to meet any customer's needs."

According to sources, the new solution will be showcased at the upcoming SC12 in Salt Lake City, Utah. The RAID team will be demonstrating performance of 16GBs and 1.8 million IOPS as well, in booth 621 at the show.
