Storage specialist Nimbus Data Systems has added the S1000 to its S-class storage appliance range, offering a capacity of 10TB of solid state Flash storage per shelf on a file system capable of supporting up to 250TB in total.
The larger storage devices are part of a push by Nimbus to bring its S-class offerings into the high-performance computing (HPC) space, where Flash-based storage is becoming an increasingly popular way to speed up system performance.
The company is also equipping the S-class systems with its FlexConnect networking hardware controllers that allow storage systems to connect with up to 120Gbit/s of bandwidth.
Nimbus hopes that the S-class line will offer large-scale storage with the speed and energy efficiency benefits that solid-state drives provide over traditional platter drives.
In doing so, the company hopes to target the S1000 systems at HPC areas such as geographic and biotechnology research.
"This new Nimbus S1000 system is a game changer for high-performance enterprises whose applications have long been bottlenecked by storage systems despite improvements in CPU, memory and network performance," said Nimbus chief executive Thomas Isakovich.
