CirraStor – Designed to Meet Today’s Demanding Scale
Out Storage Requirements
With the amount of data stored doubling every two years, and the energy required to store that data exceeding 40% of data center power consumption, nearly every organization in every vertical market has a critical need for massively scalable storage solutions that are highly efficient, easy to manage and cost effective. So why do these same organizations continue to pursue and purchase outdated rackmount storage solutions that are outrageously expensive, inefficient and inflexible? At Cirrascale®, we believe it's time to Question the Status Quo!
Cirrascale CirraStor™ Petascale Storage Appliances are designed from the ground up to meet today's demanding scale out storage requirements. Leveraging Cirrascale's breakthrough Vertical Cooling Technology,™ CirraStor blade-based storage appliances deliver the highest performance, density, and flexibility with the lowest power utilization in the industry.
Our Storage Software Partners
CirraStor appliances are designed to be configured for a broad range of storage workloads — from high-availability SAN and iSCSI solutions for public and private cloud applications to large pools of unstructured data in low cost NAS and DAS deployments. In these environments, applications and storage are converging. By working with industry leading software partners such as Amplidata, Nexenta, Piston Cloud Computing, and Zadara, Cirrascale can provide customers with an open, standards-based converged compute and storage solution that meets their needs. This convergence is critical to maximizing ROI by moving the application server closer to the physical storage to minimize network bottlenecks and increase performance.
Working with these leading storage partners allows Cirrascale to offer its customers a more robust offering to tackle today's Big Data, Cloud Storage and Active Archive needs. Cirrascale's innovative approach means that our CirraStor appliances can fulfill all of an organization's storage workloads without compromise when it comes to cost-effective solutions that optimize performance, energy efficiency, capacity and total cost of ownership.
