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

SR-71mach6 SpeedServer(TM)

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.

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 storage (and compute and memory and network) performance possible.

"All-Flash Array, or AFA"? Yes, based on Intel® Data Center SSDs designed for servers, but it can also be built using Intel® Optane SSDs based on 3D XPoint technology. ion's SR-71mach6 SpeedServer™ can be configured with NVMe Flash drives delivering much lower latency than SATA SSDs. And if the requirement is for a server with tiered storage performance, 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."

ION's SR-71mach6 SpeedServer is built exclusively with Intel SSDs.
ION's 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.
