Meet your scalability and resilience requirements with infrastructure that minimises bottlenecks and streamlines maintenance operations

SoftIron’s HyperDrive range of products are built differently – literally. Engineered from the ground-up for full interoperability with Ceph, this “task-specific” approach delivers a solution that seamlessly scales, smoothes out daily administration tasks, and keeps your TCO low.

Efficient hardware delivers efficient, sustainable results for ecommerce operations

Not only does HyperDrive have a smaller physical footprint than generic hardware, achieving impressive density with up to five times less power draw, it’s also engineered to make maintenance operations a snap. That means more available space in your data centre, and less demand on your data centre engineers.

This lower power draw isn’t just good for your TCO – it can help contribute to reducing your carbon footprint too. With increasing customer preference for net-zero emissions vendors, HyperDrive can play a part in your sustainability initiatives.

Operate across regions to meet data residency requirements

As more nations implement regulations around how their citizen’s data can be stored and analysed, the pressure is on for ecommerce enterprises to segment how customer data and transactions are handled.

HyperDrive is ideally suited to space and power-efficient instalments, and lends itself perfectly to reducing single points of failure in your network through both physical components and maximising the benefits of Ceph’s data replication capabilities. With this level of resilience and the ability to remotely manage your cluster, you won’t need daily onsite staff in your edge locations.

Why SoftIron

Task-specific engineering that delivers power efficient performance

HyperDrive has been designed from the ground up for full interoperability with Ceph. This, combined with a form factor designed to maximise cooling efficiency, means that single racks can be densely provisioned while remaining within power limits. Filling racks in this manner, and distributing data evenly with powerful replication methods, can offer dramatic cost savings compared to traditional enterprise solutions.

Fully auditable secure provenance

Where other manufacturers opt to cut costs by outsourcing manufacture to third parties (and therefore passing on the supply chain risks to their customers) SoftIron takes the opposite approach.

SoftIron has in-house, full control over the design and manufacture of our products. Because of this, we can readily enable appliance integrity audits and system verification at a granular level by third parties.

Simplify infrastructure management tasks at any scale

Skilled network and data engineers are difficult to find, and not all organisations can afford to hire one even when they’re available.

HyperDrive addresses critical skills shortages around data infrastructure management, by simplifying common data centre administration and maintenance tasks. By using SoftIron’s products, customers can conduct many previously complex data management tasks via the dashboard provided by the HyperDrive Storage Manager, and our patented “Ceph button”.
