Chelsio box-o-SSDs does 1.1 million IOPS

JBOSSD di tutti JBOSSD

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Chelsio, a network adapter card supplier, will demo a 1.1 million IOPS SAN array at SNW Dallas.

They make it sound easy. All you stuff is stuff four Micron P320h PCIe SSDs in a box, add a Chelsio 10GbitE T4 unified wire adapter, and its Unified Storage Server (USS) software running, presumably, on an X86 processor. This is the iSCSI target. Hook up five iSCSI initiators running MS Windows 2008 R2 accessing the iSCSI target through a generic 10GbE switch and - hey presto! - 1.1 million IOPS.

This is an extraordinary performance from what is, effectively, a JBOSSD - just a bunch of SSDs - and Chelsio is pleased as punch.

“The combination of Chelsio USS software and offload silicon technology and SSDs shatters the expectations of what a customer would have to pay for a million IOPS storage solution,” said Kianoosh Naghshineh, president and CEO of Chelsio.

Well, yes, that's true. The USS software supports CIFS, NFS, RDMA, HTTP, Thin Provisioning volumes, Volume cloning, snapshots, instant restore from snapshots, volume encryption and replication compression. What's missing? Did anyone say deduplication?

No matter. Any old reseller with system smarts could build such a box and offer small/medium enterprises storage performance that would knock them out. Think what sophisticated system builders could do. ®
