This is a Press Release edited by StorageNewsletter.com on Fri, January 21st, 2011
Each one at 200GB IceWEB, Inc. announced the availability of IceWEB 3000 Storage Systems with SSD technology. For high performance, I/O intensive applications, the IceWEB SS-3000HP-2.4SS contains twelve (12) SSDs and can be expanded by the IceWEB DS-500HC-3.2SS Disk Shelf containing sixteen (16) SSDs. Each 200GB SSD delivers over 30,000 read I/Os per second (IOPS), for an 360,000 IOPS for the IceWEB 3000 appliance.
SSDs can be combined with any other drive type (SAS or SATA) within the array, and high performance storage pools can be created with the SSDs alongside disk-based pools. An SSD storage pool can include iSCSI volumes, Fibre Channel LUNs, and NFS/CIFS file shares in any combination. Compared to traditional HDDs, SSDs are typically less susceptible to physical shock, quieter, and have lower access time and latency.To ensure sufficient bandwidth, each IceWEB 3000 supports up to two 10GbE or two 8Gb Fibre Channel network connections, which is sufficient to support over forty (40) SSDs at maximum IOPS rates.The solid-state drive market is projected to grow rapidly in the foreseeable future. Performance, power consumption and reliability are major reasons why market research firm IDC forecasts that SSD revenue in the enterprise segment will reach $2.0B by 2013."IceWEB's SSD-based storage platforms deliver an amazing amount of performance for applications where performance is the critical success factor," stated Dave Glatfelter, VP of Product Marketing and Alliances for IceWEB. "With the ability to mix and match drives, the IceWEB 3000 can accommodate any performance/capacity mix needed in today's virtualized environments."The IceWEB 3000 with 2.4TB of capacity and 360,000 IOPS starts at $115,000.
