Western Digital unveils FlashMax at 2014 Flash Memory Summit

FlashMAX III delivers up to 540,000 Random Read IOPS

Western Digital company HGST has launched new flash storage and accelerator software to help deliver performance improvements in demanding database and Cloud environments.

The new FlashMAX III family of PCIe accelerators were launched at 2014 Flash Memory Summit in the US.

Also introduced, was the new HGST ServerCache software that allows IT administrators to deploy a hybrid flash environment with any SSD. Western Digital vice president of SSD product marketing, Ulrich Hansen, said application performance mattered.

"Data needs to be instantly accessible for real-time processing, analytics and insights,” he said.

“To address this need, enterprise customers are actively looking to add flash into their storage infrastructure.

"Whether focused on peak application acceleration with an all-SSD environment, improving lagging performance by tiering or using caching to leverage combined HDD and flash environments, our new hardware and software solutions help strike that balance among performance, complexity and cost.” According to a company statement, HGST’s new FlashMAX III PCIe SSD and ServerCache software are suited for performance-intensive applications including databases, SQL servers, data warehouses, big data deployment and video post-production applications.

FlashMAX III delivers up to 540,000 Random Read IOPS and up to 200,000 Mixed Sustained Random IOPS from a single half-height, half-length PCIe SSD. It also supports PCI Express 3.0, the latest version of the PCI Express interconnect supported by today’s newest server platforms.

ServerCache server software eliminates storage bottlenecks by creating an SSD cache of the most frequently used data with up to a 10x improvement in performance utilising any SSD.

It runs on any server application hosted on either a Storage Area Network (SAN) or Direct Attached Storage (DAS) system running Windows Server or Linux.

FlashMAX III will be available in Q3 2014, and is currently being qualified by select OEMs.

ServerCache is available now for a free 30-day live trial download.
