SoftIron Storage Solutions

HyperDrive® Performance+

About SoftIron®

SoftIron is the world-leader in task-specific data center solutions. We proudly embrace a unique, task-specific approach to design and manufacturing. This means we’ve engineered our hardware with the singular purpose of optimizing specific open-source software for the task at hand.

The outcome? Spectacular results through specialization, highly integrated hardware and software, and end-to-end support. And, unlike other vendors - because we design and build from the ground up - we are the only ones able to offer secure provenance: the peace of mind that comes with transparent supply chain processes.

We deliver all of this in an incredibly easyto- use, scalable, and turn-key solution for the enterprise.

About HyperDrive®

SoftIron’s flagship HyperDrive enterprise storage solution is purpose-built to optimize the performance of Ceph; the leading open-source SDS platform, renowned for its durability, robust resilience and infinite scalability. Supporting block, file and object storage, Ceph is the ultimate storage solution for enterprises looking to future-proof their data center infrastructure.

HyperDrive’s Standout Benefits
  • Freedom from vendor lock-in through interoperability with community Ceph distributions
  • Blistering, line-rate performance from an architecture completely designed to optimize Ceph throughput
  • Flexibility, interoperability and resilience due to legacy, multi-protocol support and no single point of failure
  • Low TCO as a result of ultra-low power and heat footprint, no licensing fees and high-density configuration
  • Undeniable ease of use through the highly integrated and unique hardware design with an intuitive management interface, delivering effortless usability and streamlined operations

The HyperDrive Performance+ Family

The Performance+ family is the ideal fit for scale-out use cases where durability and performance are paramount. Using x86 CPUs with non-shared PCI lanes and NVMe storage, they provide the lowest latency solution in the HyperDrive portfolio. Clusters can combine Performance+ family appliances with other HyperDrive appliances to deliver multiple tiered or differentiated storage service levels, managed as a single cluster from the same easy to use Storage Manager interface.

Performance+ Key Features

  • Ceph protocol performance scalability
  • NVMe SSDs
  • Task specific design with right-sized CPU and networking architecture for line rate throughput
  • Redundant power

Typical Use Cases

  • M&E delivery, CGI rendering
  • FinTech applications
  • Tier 1 research computing
  • Scientific data ingest
  • AI training
  • Cache tiering
  • Edge computing data ingest
