SR-71mach6 SpeedServer™ ion's All-SSD RAID Server

ion's SR-71mach6 SpeedServer™ is an all SSD RAID server optimized to deliver well more than 1 million IOPS performing random reads. The SpeedServer is built on the latest Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors with the fastest memory and server NICs in a compact, cost-effective, and low-power system. Now, save 5% on SpeedServers.

SR-71mach6 SpeedServer(TM)
  • For a powerful but more affordable 1U all-SSD RAID server, look at the SR-70mach6 SpeedServer.
  • Hard to believe this performance? Please look at some of the bandwidth and IOPS benchmarks.
  • ion SR-71mach6 SpeedServer is based on Intel Data Center SSDs or Optane Enthusiast SSDs
  • Intel Flash SSDs are over-provisioned by ion for greater endurance and better random write performance.
  • ion SR-71mach6 SpeedServer is only offered with Intel SSDs which feature 1 sector per 10^17 bits read Uncorrectable Bit Error Rate (UBER)

Sure, you can still deploy servers with spinning rust. But why? Pretend for a moment that the performance of an all-SSD server - very high IOPS, very low latency and amazing bandwidth - is of no value to your organization. What is the value of the higher reliability of SSDs? What tolerance does your organization have for downtime? For slow RAID rebuilds? SR-71mach6 SpeedServer is built entirely with SSD, using RAID, to produce a storage server of very high reliability. SpeedServer? StorageServer? SR-71mach6 is a server, SSD-optimized for the highest performance possible.

"All-Flash Array, or AFA"? Yes, but ion's SR-71mach6 SpeedServer™ can also be built using Intel® Optane SSDs based on 3D XPoint technology. Or with NVMe Flash drives delivering much lower latency than SATA SSDs. If the requirement is for a server with tiered storage performance, any or all of those technologies can be combined for an optimum mix of performance and capacity with no spinning rust. DCIG suggests that "Any organization that has yet to adopt an all-flash storage infrastructure for all active workloads is operating at a competitive disadvantage."

What would an All-SSD server do for the performance of your database? An All-SSD Windows File Server? Or, an All-SSD Open-E JovianDSS storage server?

ION SR-71mach6 SpeedServer is built exclusively with Intel SSDs.
ION SR-71mach6 SpeedServer starts with an Intel ServerBoard.
In 1998, ION became the first company in the world to qualify as an Intel Authorized Solution Provider, the program now known as Intel Technology Provider, Platinum Member.
