Editor:- September 2017 - Why did
Nimbus (a capacity
optimized PB/U SSD array vendor) enter the
SAS SSD (drive) market?
Maybe for some of the same
that Innodisk had entered the HPC (performance optimized) flash array market
with its AccelStor subsidiary 3 years before.
But although some of the
market pressures are the same there are differences in the
and competitive landscapes too. Read
sauce for the
SSD box gander for analysis.
Who's who in SSD? - AccelStor
- editor - StorageSearch.com
- July 2015
AccelStor is a new company recently emerged from stealth
mode which uses enterprise flash array technology (FlexiArray) originally
developed by Innodisk.
The FlexiArray product line (as it was originally called) was first
launched in November
2013 and it seemed out of context to me at that time - coming as it did from
an industrial SSD
company. But I learned more about its nature and where it fitted into the
segments within the enterprise market in a conversation which I reported on
in June 2014. After that the product made much more sense to me as part of an
emerging pattern which we're seeing - of reliable fast systems which are
marketed free from bundled complex software cocktails.
respect this approach is also consistent with the inevitable (user
inspired) market shift towards
consolidation - at the end of which time (in the next 3 to 5 years) most
SSD systems will be regarded as white boxes which are managed by 3rd party
Marketing is becoming more important in the enterprise SSD
market - compared to just raw technology. So in that respect - the spinning off
of AccelStor - as an enterprise oriented company - which happend in November
2014 - also seems like an inevitable and eminently sensible business move.
that's how we end up today in the curious position of a new rackmount SSD
company - AccelStor - which while being itself less than a year old - has
already been shipping systems to selected customers for nearly 2 years.
new NVMe rackmount SSD is 6x faster|
|Editor:- August 2, 2017 - AccelStor today
a new high
availability all-NVMe flash storage array, the NeoSapphire H810. The 4U
rackmount SSD which uses Intel's Xeon Purley platform and has 100GbE
connectivity delivers upto 6x the performance of the company's previous
NeoSapphire P310 all-NVMe flash array will be on display next week at the Flash Memory Summit.|

tale of SSD market influences|
|Editor:- November 15, 2016 - Recently I spoke
President - Charles Tsai.
We talked about many changing influences in the SSD market. I thought
you might be interested to see some of the things we spoke about in a new blog
on StorageSearch.com -
tale of SSD market influences - because it will give you an idea of how
many strategic changes in the SSD market can now influence every business
decision about what new products to create - even when those changing factors
seem at first to be only loosely connected like the flash controller,
industrial SSD, SCM, software and enterprise rackmount SSD markets. But all
those factors entwined the flow of this SSD conversation which really
started 2 years before. ...read the
wins award at Flash Memory Summit|
|Editor:- August 18, 2016 - AccelStor today
announced it has
won the Best-of-Show Technology Innovation Award for its
FlexiRemap software at
the Flash Memory Summit 2016
in Santa Clara, California.|
AccelStors FlexiRemap software improves
performance, cuts down on overhead, and extends SSD lifespan. The technology
achieves sustained performance and reliability even in the random-access
scenarios typical of enterprise storage needs. Thanks to the global
wear-leveling algorithm, FlexiRemap arrays have at least 2x the
compared to typical legacy RAID
5 flash systems.

new 2U FT GbE AFA can do 600K iSCSI IOPS |
|Editor:- February 17, 2016 - AccelStor today
launched a 2U
high end model in its NeoSapphire (rackmount SSD)
(which includes 24 hot-swap SSDs including 2 spares) achieves 600K IOPS for 4KB
random writes with iSCSI
over its 4 port 10GbE connectivity.
- AccelStor says its automatic data reconstruction makes it easy to replace
drives on the fly and without a performance penalty.
