Topkey implemented AccelStor’s NeoSapphire™ AFA for their virtualization platform after evaluating several storage solutions. Powered by AccelStor’s award-winning FlexiRemap® software technology, the NeoSapphire all-flash array enables more efficient data processing and a longer SSD lifespan, unleashing the true performance of the enterprise SSDs inside the array. Its built-in web-based user interface makes it easier to manage storage volumes attached to multiple servers. FlexiRemap® comes with built-in data protection and fault tolerance, which provides better protection against SSD failure than standard RAID. In addition, the overall deployment flexibility can be significantly improved by using 10GbE transmission to share NFS shares with a KVM virtual platform.
The NeoSapphire™ AFA is powered by AccelStor’s core technology—FlexiRemap®, a unique software architecture featuring a proprietary data remapping algorithm designed to work based on the fundamentals of flash memory. It has brought the following remarkable benefits for Topkey:
• Offer an outstanding 360K IOPS for 4KB random writes, which significantly enhances the performance of virtual servers
• Proprietary data remapping technology and global wear-leveling algorithm reduce unnecessary I/O overhead and maximize SSD lifespan
• AccelStor’s software-defined approach unleashes the true performance of storage hardware, ensures sustained high performance and robust data protection, providing customers a superior price-performance flash storage
