Violin Memory offers starter kits to tempt flash storage virgins

Step right up and get your two million IOPS bundle

Violin Memory has two flash array starter bundles to give enterprises "an easy and affordable way" into all-flash array performance.

Both are based on the high-end FSP 7700 all-flash array, which can provide, Violin says, two million IOPS. The Scalable Starter Kit has:

  • Two Violin FSP 7700 Modular Scalable Array Controllers
  • Two switches
  • Two all-flash arrays with 70TB raw capacity (35TB per shelf)
  • Violin Concerto OS 7 and Symphony Management Software

Violin says the Concerto OS 7 delivers enterprise data services and management simplicity for primary storage applications.

As needs grow extra Violin arrays can be seamlessly added, as storage shelves, to a maximum of 1.4 petabytes raw capacity.

The Stretch Cluster Starter Kit spans two sites in a metropolitan area, and provides automated disaster recovery for applications, business data, and services running on it if a disaster should happen. It uses synchronous mirroring of all selected LUNs across the geographically dispersed locations with support for zero Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO).
