RAIDIX Teams with Intel for High

storage solution for any use case where speed of read-write operations
is crucial: real-time analytics, financial transactions, multi-threads
processing in databases, and others.
Joint storage solution of RAIDIX ERA and Intel Optane is able to reach
1,000,000 IOps in mixed mode only with 4 drives: comparison tests show
better results with fewer drives required to achieve the desired level
While Intel Optane is ideal for handling data close to the CPU for rapid
access, RAIDIX ERA software provides record access speed for both random
and sequential workloads. Compared to classic NAND SSDs, Intel Optane
hardware with unique Intel 3D XPoint memory architecture gives more
stable performance and reaches excel by 431% on write and by 30% on read
ERA algorithms focus on maximizing the capabilities of CPU and
optimization of multi-threaded calculation, much needed for industries
operating high-speed access to the data: IoT, VR, AR, Real-Time Bidding
(RTB), large SQL and NoSQL databases, intensive calculation in HPC and
Big Data, 4K and 8K video production.
“For businesses, which largely depend on IT infrastructure, it is
crucial to deploy storage devices with the highest throughput and
extended bandwidth with the lowest latency. It is for the
high-performance software and efficient data management to get the most
from the hardware”, — says Sergey Platonov, R&D Director at RAIDIX.
RAIDIX ERA aggregates multiple directly attached SSDs into fast and
reliable virtual block storage to create performance arrays for high
load tasks and applications. The core principle is to optimize CPU
calculations of incoming data streams for efficient exploitation to
improve bandwidth and throughput characteristics. RAIDIX ERA
successfully substitutes hardware RAID controllers and less productive
software RAIDs (mdraid, for example).
