Cirrascale SB Series Storage Blades

Cirrascale's storage technology is recognized as a market leader in blade-based storage solutions for the enterprise and cloud data center. The product was designed to handle everything from high-availability Web 2.0 and cloud applications to large pools of unstructured data. In these environments, applications and storage are becoming more converged. Cirrascale's award-winning storage technology take this convergence to the ultimate endpoint by moving the application server closer to the physical storage to minimize network bottlenecks and increase performance.

Product Features and Benefits

  • Up to twelve 4TB drives per storage blade and up to four blades per storage head node.
  • Up to 3.4PB of storage capacity per BladeRack 2 Series platform for maximum density.
  • Drives can be hot-swapped for ease-of-serviceability.
  • Mixes easily with Cirrascale compute, GPGPU and workstation blades for converged approach.
  • Utilizes Vertical Cooling Technology to cut cooling costs and increase density footprint.

Cirrascale SB Series Storage Blades Overview

Utilizing industry leading technologies, such as our patented Vertical Cooling Technology, the SB Series of blade storage solutions combine with our BladeRack platforms to provide the most efficient and scalable storage solutions available while boasting the lowest TCO of any blade-based storage platform found on the market today. The versatility of this combined storage solution is one of its biggest strengths. This solution was designed for everything from high availability Web 2.0 applications to large pools of unstructured data. In these environments, applications and storage are becoming more converged.

Cirrascale's award-winning blade storage solutions take this convergence to the ultimate endpoint by moving the application server closer to the physical storage to minimize network bottlenecks and increase performance. This convergence of storage, server and applications makes our blade-based storage products the ideal platforms for those organizations seeking cost-effective solutions where processing power, efficiency and storage density are primary concerns.

Cirrascale SB Series storage solutions are modular, blade based application servers direct-connected to high capacity high density storage blades capable of supporting a wide spectrum of workloads. This direct combination allows Cirrascale customers to scale up and scale out as their organization grows.
