Elevate your data analytics capabilities with the performance delivered by task-specific engineering

Access speeds and storage space. If your data analytics solution can’t keep up with the demand for both, you can wind up with blown-out project timelines and a statistically significant increase of frustrated analysts. SoftIron’s platform makes scaling shared resources both power and space-efficient.

Wirespeed throughput

Component synergy is fundamental to our design and build process. By ensuring every single component works to its full potential, unhindered by any other component in the same wire speed chain, we remove the I/O bottlenecks that plague generic hardware.

Combine that with an appliance engineered for full interoperability with Ceph, and you have a solution that makes the most out of your network speeds. Get scale-out storage at wire speed, right through your facility.

Choose the best storage types for your analytics workload

Not all data is needed at all times, and not only that, the media your data backups are stored on doesn’t need the high access speeds your analytics tasks will require day to day.

Manage your performance and density requirements all within the same architecture, with our storage appliances. Choose high performance, all-flash storage tiers for the data you need rapid access to, and demote backups and historical data to HDD pools.

Maximum scale, minimum footprint

Every appliance we manufacture is only 1U in size, and ultra energy-efficient, requiring up to 80% less power usage than comparable hardware. This allows you to fit more appliances into each rack, and get much more storage into your data centre without upgrading or over-engineering endless power circuits. It’s also a boost for any organisation seeking additional ways to reduce their carbon footprint on the way to net-zero emissions.

Create data lakes to collect vast volumes of both structured and unstructured data

If you’re using data for real-time analytics, big data processing or machine learning, you’ll need a data lake that can efficiently balance your performance and storage needs. SoftIron’s HyperDrive Performance range delivers all-flash storage options that will be a perfect match for your data lake needs, delivering the performance you require to take data from click-streams and IoT devices, and turn raw data into actionable business intelligence.

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”.
