Violin Memory Zeros In On Primary Storage Tier with New Flash Offerings

The assault on hard disk storage seems to be building with each new flash memory offering. This week, Violin Memory launched a new solid state memory line aimed to replace primary storage in the datacenter. The Violin 6000 Series flash Memory Arrays is designed as an all-silicon storage solution for data-intensive enterprise applications, and is intended to compete against disk-based solutions in cost, both upfront and operationally.

Violin Concerto 7000 All Flash Array: Performance Packed with Data Services

All Flash Arrays (AFAs) are plentiful in the market. At one level all AFAs deliver phenomenal performance compared to an HDD array. But comparing AFAs to an HDD-based system is like comparing a Ford Focus to a Lamborghini. The comparison has to be inter-AFAs and when one looks under the hood one finds the AFAs in the market vary in performance, resiliency, consistency of performance, density, scalability and almost every dimension one can think of.

An AFA has to be viewed as a business transformation technology. A well-designed AFA, applied to the right applications will not only speed up application performance but by doing so enable you to make fundamental changes to your business. It may enable you to offer new services to your customers. Or serve your current customers faster and better. Or improve internal procedures in a way that improves employee morale and productivity. To not view an AFA through the business lens would be missing the point.

In this Product Profile we describe all the major criteria that should be used to evaluate AFAs and then look at Violin’s new entry, Concerto 7000 All Flash Array to see how it fares against these measures.

Commodity storage has its place, but an all-flash architecture thrills

Every day we hear of budget-savvy IT folks attempting to leverage commodity servers and disks by layering on software-implemented storage services. But at the same time, and at some of the same datacenters, highly optimized flash-fueled acceleration technologies are racing in with competitive performance and compelling price comparisons.

Violin Bares New Gen of All-Flash Teeth

Recently I hosted a second all-flash vendor panel on our Taneja Group BrightTalk channel. Violin Memory and IBM squared off (and tended to agree on many points) on the current good use cases, applications, and futures of the high-performance end of the flash storage market, with Netapp providing some balanced commentary based on their upcoming all-flash solution (FlashRay). Violin's perspective was that efficiently designed all-flash systems are starting to be so cost-competitive they are taking over tier 1 AND tier 2 workloads in the datacenter, and by the way, a competitive data center has already completely transitioned to their all flash storage. Flash forward a couple of weeks (pun intended), and we see Violin today rolling out a newly revamped all-flash platform (7300 and 7700 series)...
