Virtualized, append-only data layout ensures data is spread across the large pool of flash memory. This results in extremely effective deduplication and compressions on a large scale.
Purity writes data to the flash memory in the ideal manner for each particular SSD – optimizing its performance, minimizing internal data movement, and maximizing lifespan.
Purity actively moves data from one physical location to another to balance flash memory wear, manage over-writes and deletion, refresh data, and heal around any underlying SSD failures.
Purity fingerprints each SSD (vendor, model, firmware, controller), so it can optimize data placement and performance for each SSD’s unique characteristics, as well as mix-and-match SSDs in the same system.
The flexible metadata structure has numerous benefits:
