45Drives Stornado

All-Flash Server for the Enterprise

As the cost of SSDs has decreased and performance demands have increased, more and more companies are turning to all-flash servers for storage. SSDs have significantly lower latency and faster read/write speeds than HDD, which results in enhanced responsiveness and efficiency for users.

If your application requires an all-flash server, the 45Drives Stornado is your solution. The Stornado is the densest all-flash server available on the market, with 32-bays in a 2U chassis. This enterprise-ready all-flash server is backed by the 45Drives support team.

45Drives Clustered Stornado

Peak Clustering Performance with the Stornado

Clustering links your servers to create a unified namespace managed from a single interface, allowing easy scalability for users. Your data remains accessible through redundant storage across the cluster, ensuring availability even during planned or unplanned downtime.

We provide these clustering solutions using Ceph, open-source software designed for scalable and highly available storage.

The features of Ceph are complemented by the speed of the Stornado storage server and SSD drives. SATA SSDs leverage their flash technology to enhance performance over traditional HDDs, resulting in reduced data transfer times and minimized latency.

NVMe drives further enhance performance by dramatically increasing data throughput and efficiency. They also use the PCIe interface for direct, high-speed CPU connections, which reduces data transfer times and minimizes latency. This is especially beneficial in high-demand environments like big data analytics and real-time applications, ensuring clusters operate at peak performance by minimizing bottlenecks in data access and processing.

Why Choose 45Drives?

At 45Drives, we’ve reinvented the way enterprise storage and virtualization are delivered with our ‘New Enterprise’ model. Like legacy vendors, we provide full solutions - consulting, architecture, hardware, software, configuration, and support. But unlike legacy vendors, our open, non-proprietary model eliminates the risk of lock-in contracts.
