Good post by Chris Mellor (thank you) over at El Reg
X-IO’s five-year warranty, maintenance-free sealed disk and disk+flash arrays have a new brother: the all-flash ISE. It’s sprinted right to the top of the SPC-1 price/performance benchmark charts.
The ISE 800 comes in a standard 3U X-IO enclosure and uses X-IO’s Gen 3 architecture, which first appeared in the ISE 780 in January. There are three models:
- 820 – to 6.4TB pre-RAID capacity (2.7TB RAID 10, 4.3TB RAID 5)
- 850 – to 25.6TB pre-RAID capacity (11.4TB RAID 10, 18.3TB RAID 5)
- 860 – to 51.2TB pre-RAID capacity (22.9TB RAID 10, 36.6TB RAID 5)
All provide a max of 400,000 IOPS, or 260,000 IOPS with what is called an OLTP workload. There is up to 5GB/sec of bandwidth available.
