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

ion's SR-71mach6 SpeedServer™ is an all SSD server optimized to deliver well more than 1 million IOPS performing random reads. ion's SpeedServer is built on the latest Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors with up to 768GB 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 or Optane 905P 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).

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.

Contact ion to take the SR-71mach6 SpeedServer for a testdrive!

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.
