Scale-out easily with flash and processing power on each Blade.
Software designed for scale and simplicity.
Low-latency, software-defined 320Gb/s Ethernet fabric.
Scale-out everything online and instantly by simply adding blades. Each blade adds capacity, performance, metadata scale, NV-RAM, and client connections.
FlashBlade includes a built-in GUI and CLI, as well as our Pure1 cloud-based management and support platform. A single administrator can manage a FlashBlade deployment of any size.
100% flash architecture ensures that no operation is ever waiting for access. FlashBlade accelerates large-block and small-block IO, and makes both user IO and metadata operations flash-fast.
Blades are deployed in N+2 redundant fashion to protect against flash or full Blade loss. When Blades fail, the system automatically heals-around them, returning FlashBlade to full resiliency.
High performance fabric with object messaging and distributed transaction protocol to ensure fast and reliable communication between Elasticity instances running on each blade.
75% of NFS operations are metadata-only operations, like GetAttrs. FlashBlade implements a scale-out Metadata Map, used by all layers of the system, which is independently queryable for powerful analytics.
Drowning in aggregates, volumes, pools, and caches? Petabyte-scale storage has never been this easy.
Deploy as a single 4U appliance, with a minimum of 7 blades. All networking is internal, and all software included. No tuning or configuration necessary.
Scale out by inserting new blades into the system. Blades are ultra-low latency, 8 & 52TB capacity, and hot-pluggable. No pre-configuration or planning required.
With a built-in GUI and CLI, as well as cloud-based management and support from Pure1, a single administrator can manage a FlashBlade deployment of any size.
