Big Data continues to grow exponentially. Organizations are looking for innovative ways to extract the maximum value from their Big Data to accelerate workflows, gain valuable insight, shorten time to discovery and gain a competitive advantage. Storage is a critical component and selecting the right storage platform will make or break or your Big Data initiatives. Big Data storage requires a platform that delivers better performance, data protection and simplicity, while optimizing the most efficient mix of hybrid media – which will deliver the performance of flash at the price of SATA. In addition, organizations are seeking to leverage the cloud to enable collaboration, while keeping it simple, secure and within budget limitations.
The SFA7700 is a hybrid flash storage appliance, purpose-built for Big Data requirements that uniquely enables organizations resolve today’s key storage challenges. It is designed to allow you to start small and extract maximum value from your Big Data. At the core, is the hyper-optimized SFA Operating System, running in two hybrid controllers that leverage Storage Fusion Xcelerator™ (SFX) technology to extract the maximum performance and value from hybrid (spinning disk & flash) media. SFX integrates application-centric intelligence with the power of flash media to marry the performance of flash with the economy of hard disk drives. This drastically lowers the TCO for organizations deploying a mix of flash and rotating media while simultaneously accelerating application performance. Furthermore, the SFA7700 family instantly cloud enables your storage for global collaboration and cost-effective archive with its file system hooks that migrate data seamlessly to the cloud.
