SR-71mach6 SpeedServer™ ion's all-SSD Server

ion's SR-71mach6 SpeedServer™ is an all SSD server optimized to deliver over 2 million IOPS performing 8kB random reads. ion's SpeedServer is built on the latest Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors with up to 1.5TB of the fastest memory along with 10Gb, 25Gb and 40Gb server NICs in a compact, cost-effective, and low-power system.

  • Design your ultimate servers based on SSD RAID in the SR-71mach6 Configurator.
  • Need more modest capacity, lower cost or smaller size? SR-70mach6 SpeedServer.
  • No fabric can deliver latency as low as NVMe direct-attached storage (DAS).
  • ion SR-71mach6 SpeedServer is based on Intel® Data Center SSDs with an Uncorrectable Bit Error Rate (UBER/NRE) of 1 sector per 1017 bits read.

"All-Flash Array, or AFA"? All SSD, yes, but ion's SR-71mach6 SpeedServer™ can be designed with Intel® DC Flash SSDs and/or Intel® Optane SSDs based on 3D XPoint technology for even higher performance than Flash. ion's SR-71mach6 SpeedServer is a server, not just an array or storage subsystem. Software like Open-E JovianDSS or Microsoft® Windows® Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) can present the server as a storage resource; VMware® vSAN can provision the SR-71mach6 SpeedServer as hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI). Or, for a speedy virtual machine host, Microsoft® Windows® Hyper-V® or Linux® deliver very flexible platforms.

What would an All-SSD server do for the performance of your database? An All-SSD File Server? Or, an All-SSD Open-E JovianDSS storage server? Considering other products? ion's SR-71mach6 SpeedServer™ is a server running the operating system of your choice with no secret sauce.

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.
