Realize Scalable Storage at Wire speed

 

Every trial cluster of HyperDrive ships with optimized storage server hardware, designed by us, and pre-installed with Ceph, a leading open source, distributed, scale-out platform.

HyperDrive is a dedicated Ceph appliance tuned to deliver wire speed throughput performance that scales as the cluster grows. HyperDrive also inter operates easily with any other solutions in your data center running Ceph.

90-day risk-free trial

Try a HyperDrive cluster with our unifying Storage Manager, commitment free. You’ll get an appropriately configured cluster, for your own site-specific validation. If it doesn’t stay, you don’t pay.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Ceph, and why are you using it for your storage platform?
    Ceph is a leading open-source distributed scale-out software platform. Many experts in the industry expect Ceph to win the battle (much like Linux did) for open-source software defined storage, because of its feature-rich and extremely flexible platform. Ceph, as a distributed, scale-out storage service, caters best to high bandwidth, medium latency types of applications such as content delivery, archive storage, or block storage for virtualization.
  • Is HyperDrive truly interoperable with anything else in my data center?
    Yes, HyperDrive works with any other device that runs Ceph.
  • Can HyperDrive really run at wire speed?
    Absolutely. Storage is an I/O problem, not a compute one. We tune for wire speed on every product. If the product has a 10Gbps port, the throughput performance will be just that less packet overhead. In independent customer tests, HyperDrive delivered wire speed throughput for each node, and the performance scaled up linearly with each additional node.
  • How exactly is HyperDrive optimized for storage?
    We designed HyperDrive from the ground up to be specifically optimized for storage. This is a big difference when compared to the typical commodity hardware that you might run with another SDS solution. HyperDrive has these storage-specific features: - Hard drives are housed in caddies to make replacement easy and to ensure better cooling. - There are NO cables inside the box. Cables are susceptible to an increase in bit error rate which could compromise reliability and performance. The result is that you get perfect data transmission. Everything is tuned for I/O. We right-size the processor and all connectivity, and we make sure the drives are kept cool with precision air flow.
