SFA12K Family

THE MOST ADVANCED STORAGE PLATFORMS FOR BIG DATA

Fusing unprecedented IOPS and bandwidth performance with the most efficient capacity management, the SFA is the proven storage platform for today’s data intensive applications.

Big Data is here and it’s unruly. Capacity and performance requirements are exploding and increasingly more difficult to predict. Data patterns have changed, requiring new, massive multi-threaded storage processing capabilities designed for today’s multi-core, multi-application sets. Innovative, award winning and proven in the world’s largest and most demanding production environments, DDN’s Storage Fusion Architecture (SFA) utilizes the most advanced processor technology, busses and memory with an optimized RAID engine and sophisticated data management algorithms. The SFA12KX product family is designed to derive peak performance out of your compute investments with a massive I/O infrastructure and multi-media disk drives that maximize system performance and lower storage investment costs. The SFA12KX product family is purpose-built to simplify and tame big data growth, enabling you to architect and scale your environment more intelligently, efficiently and cost effectively than ever before.
