Avere gets edgy, speeds up flash flier filer

FXT 4800 also enlarged to 4.8TB SSD capacity

Intelligent flash storage arrays

Avere produces clusterable FXT filer accelerators using tiering across RAM, Flash/SSD, fast SAS disk, and nearline SATA/SAS disks to accelerate access to file data from a filer behind it.

Edge filers take this model further – making traditional filers look like slow, high-capacity data stores. Edge filers can store files up in the cloud, including Amazon's S3 and Glacier, or a private cloud.

The firm is updating its FXT 4500, and speeding up the 4800.

The existing FXT 3800 features:

  • 144GB RAM,
  • 2GB NVRAM,
  • 800GB SSD,
  • 7.8TB SAS disk and
  • 2 x 10GbitE and 6 x 1Gbit E networking ports.

The existing FXT 4200 and 4500 have no disk drives and 1.6TB or 3TB of flash respectively.

Avere's flash hot box FXT 4800 has 4.8TB SSD capacity, markedly higher, and no hard disk drives. The company says that, "in a 50-node cluster, the FXT 4800 provides a high performance and high capacity tier for as many as 50 NAS and object-based core filers with a total of 7.2TB DRAM, 240TB SSD, more than 110GB/sec throughput, and more than 3.6 million ops/sec performance."

The FXT 4800 is available now and starts at $159,500. ®
