This release comes with increased write performance to as much as 90Gb/s and with write latency as low as 40 microseconds with RAID-6 protection. In addition, version 2.2 includes fast SWARM recovery for RAID rebuilds and consistency groups for snapshots.
These new features, combined with a suite of existing data management capabilities such as thin provisioning, snapshots, and data at rest encryption, solidify the firm as a capable NVMe-oF shared storage platform in terms of performance, density and enterprise features. The company has showcased its solution at Dell Technologies World, in Las Vegas, NV.
Through disaggregated rack-scale flash, customers have a flexible option (OPENCHOICE) to reuse existing standard 2.5″ NVMe SSDs or purchase the latest capacity or performance drives directly from their preferred drive manufacturer. With the firm’s enhanced SWARM Recovery feature, the rebuild time for a single drive is less than five minutes per terabyte. By comparison, a 2TB NVMe SSD deployed in a DAS node can take hours and negatively impact application performance.
“We have been a Pavilion customer since 2018 and we are glad to see the continuous product improvements to allow us to take advantage of the incredible performance, density, and low latencies of the Pavilion NVMe-oF solutions that help accelerate our data-intensive analytics workloads,” said Chris Jordan, lead, data management and collections group, TX Advanced Computing Center (TACC).
“Modern, scale-out analytics and third platform applications demand high performance and operational simplicity at scale,” said Gurpreet Singh, CEO, Pavilion. “With the new release, the Pavilion solution delivers on the promise of true rack-scale storage disaggregation for these cloud-scale applications, meeting ever-increasing performance requirements while at the same time, enabling the customers to scale by decreasing operational complexity of DAS. Pavilion Data is ushering in the third wave of NVMe adoption where enterprise SAN features meet the performance and agility of DAS.”
