SoftIron’s powerful, yet economical, dedicated Ceph appliance. Purpose built for scale-out enterprise storage.

SoftIron’s HyperDrive Density range is our powerful – yet economical – custom-designed, dedicated Ceph appliance, purpose-built for software-defined storage.

Ceph is widely considered to be the leading open-source software that underpins enterprise level software-defined storage (SDS) solutions, because it’s designed to provide highly scalable object, block and file-based storage under a unified system. It will endure because of its accessibility, unparalleled flexibility, rich features, impressive roster of enterprise ambassadors and an already deep and devoted user community.

It takes more than generic hardware to get outstanding performance for storage, and because HyperDrive Density (HD11120) is custom built for Ceph, all components integrate with, and exploit Ceph’s outstanding functionality. The result is a scale-out storage solution that runs at wire-speed, yet at less than 100W per 1U appliance.

With HyperDrive Density you can easily and confidently:

  • Deploy your Ceph storage cluster on custom designed hardware that’s purpose built and optimized for storage
  • Seamlessly integrate HyperDrive into your existing
    Ceph environment
  • Simplify and centralize the management of your storage
    hardware and Ceph software
  • Run your data center at true wire-speed
  • Future-proof your data center with an infinitely scalable SDS solution, free from vendor lock-in
  • Manage your budget with a flexible, pay-as-you-go
    subscription model
  • Optimize your rack and reduce cooling costs with low power, 1U form factor appliances that use less than 100 watts under full load
  • Take advantage of our end-to-end, one vendor support for assistance with software and hardware
