Providing 64TB and 32TB capacities each dual ported for HA and designed for extended life in heavy write-on-write applications
Building off the company’s ECO*Flash environmentally sustainable platform, it provides an enhanced on-premise storage solution with 3PB in a 4U. The hardware generates the lowest carbon footprint of solid-state technology as compared to the industry standard by consuming half the power, rejecting half the heat, and providing density.
Minimizing environmental impact
World leaders continue to acknowledge the need for ‘meaningful and effective actions’ to mitigate global temperature rises. Last month, they attended the G-20 climate summit in Rome, just prior to the United Nation’s COP26 in Glasgow, UK, to define environmental targets that include pledges for emissions targets and net-zero carbon emission plans.
“Leadership everywhere is embracing global environmental stewardship, turning to responsible innovation to address sustainability concerns while continuing to manage their businesses,” said Steve Groenke, CEO. “We recognized a need for environmentally sustainable storage hardware options. As an industry leader, it is our obligation to continue to provide ‘GREEN’ storage server arrays that minimize the environmental impact of data centers.“
The fastest way to reduce climate-changing pollution is by reducing power consumption and enhancing energy efficiency. Data centers consume an amount of energy, and ECO*Flash2 is an energy efficient all-flash enterprise grade hardware.
Green Sustainable hardware
The company recognized years ago that data centers were not designed to manage the exponential growth of data, nor were they optimized to deliver data fast enough for real-time processing at reasonable power consumption ratios. The firm originally developed its ECO*Flash storage platform to resolve the 5 largest data center challenges: scalability, cost, deteriorating performance, power/cooling, and security.
ECO*Flash2 expands upon these performance issues by providing a ‘green’ environmentally friendly hardware storage platform that addresses performance and scalability. Designed for HPC, AI platforms, HCI, cloud, and on-premise big data, the platform meets ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 90.4-2019 Energy Standard for Data Centers used in both LEED Gold and Platinum data centers.
Big data analytics
ECO*Flash2 allows storage architects to design and evaluate hybrid solutions that include on-premise hardware for sensitive data, Personally Identifiable Information (PII), and big data analytics that require low-latency processes; while integrating traditional cloud repositories for non-critical day-to-day storage. The company offer management software to provide insight, predictive analytics, and policy-based orchestration, while calculating the TCO for both on-premise and cloud data expansions at any scale.
ECO*Flash2 is ECO*FRIENDLY
Legacy storage infrastructure is typically inefficient, new performance storage technology is power hungry, and the cost of the cloud continues to increase. The key to the continued success of ECO*Flash technology is its ability to provide power performance and data throughput at a lower cost per terabyte, and you control your data. ECO*Flash2 provides 64TB and 32TB capacities each dual ported for HA and are designed for extended life in heavy write-on-write applications. The ECO*FRIENDLY is available.
“The proven way to enhance data security and performance is with on-premise hardware,” said Joseph Drissel, CTO. “The benefits of knowing where your data resides and providing users efficient storage technology is critical.“
