Amplidata smashes the object pedal against the metal

Feel those IOPS blow your girlfriend's headscarf off

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Amplidata has pushed the accelerator pedal to the floor with its AmpliStor XT object storage system. It's increased throughput, raised the IOPS rate and dropped latency, saying these things make its product better suited to big unstructured data applications.

This move follows Scality's ESG performance work but has obviously been in development for many months.

Amplidata says each one of its controllers can now stream object data at 750MB/sec. There can be multiple controllers in racks and multiple AmpliStor racks to get performance up to the tens of GB/sec level, with claimed linear scaling of throughput.

It has enhanced its BitSpread Erasure Coding software to lower latency and raise IOPS, and says its controllers can drive 10 GbitE interfaces at full capacity. There is an object caching facility in the controllers, using either disk or SSD, and that gets you faster object access for repeat requests and/or the situation where objects are accessed remotely across a WAN.

The firm says API enhancements for http/REST and .Net applications speed development, and provide enhanced security for online applications. There is an improved GUI for monitoring and reporting, and SNMP support to allow alerting and browsing in common frameworks.

Amplidata also says it offers automated installation of petabyte scale and beyond deployments. ®
