|Virident Systems||FlashMAX II|| FlashMAX II is
Virident's 2nd generation enterprise PCIe SSD accelerator.|
These half length, half height modules are designed to give high capacity and performance in a small foorprint.
Virident's positioning with the FlashMAX is that it aims to provide consistent enterprise performance (relative to the variables of block size, how full the SSD is etc) rather than a product which has speed spikes which vary across storage dimensions and time.
Virident's virtualization software - vFAS transparently optimizes the the management of the flash memory array to provide RAID-like protection which can survice multiple failures without introducing additional latency.
