StorONE and Seagate Partner to Maximize SSD Performance Specs

businesswire | June 25, 2019

Today announced record speeds using Seagate SSD drives and StorONEs TRU S1 Software Defined Storage solution. In recent performance testing, StorONE combined its software with Seagates enterprise-class SSDs in a virtual appliance configuration that reached a breakthrough half a million IOPS with 24 Seagate SSDs and all enterprise-class data protection features running. The high-availability, failure-proof VMware cluster with two nodes achieved this throughput on random reads (4K) and 180,000 IOPS on random writes (4K) with latency of less than 0.2 milliseconds. The StorONE Unified Virtual Appliance configuration with Seagate drives eliminates the storage performance problems caused by server virtualization. StorONE software runs in a simple ESXi VM using very little memory and compute and does not require expensive server configurations, big memory caches, or other expensive add-on products. The virtual appliance supports all hypervisor platforms including VMware, Hyper-V, KVM, and Oracle VM.
