FA-300 Series Controller

FA-400 Series Controller

Performance
  • Up to 200,000 IOPS
  • < 1ms average latency
  • Up to 1.5 GB/s bandwidth
  • Up to 400,000 8K IOPS
  • < 1ms average latency
  • Up to 5 GB/s bandwidth

Capacity
  • 5 – 50 TBs effective capacity
  • 2.75 – 11 TBs raw capacity
  • 5 – 120+ TBs effective capacity*
