DataDirect Networks (DDN) Announces Hybrid Flash Storage Appliance With Application Awareness to Accelerate Big Data Insights
New SFA7700(TM) Hybrid Storage Appliance Intelligently Integrates Flash and Spinning Disk With Applications to Optimize Performance & TCO

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/09/12 -- DataDirect Networks™ (DDN), the leader in massively scalable storage, today announced the availability of its next-generation scale-out storage platform: The SFA7700 hybrid Flash storage appliance with SFX™ acceleration. This innovative modular, scale-out appliance brings an industry-leading level of performance to data-intensive applications such as computational simulation, government intelligence, media, web and Big Data analytics that require multi-dimensional storage performance and smart storage tiering combined with leading data center density for both structured and unstructured data.

The SFA7700 is a fully redundant hybrid storage platform engineered for performance and capacity optimization of block- and file-based applications. The base system supports 60 Flash and/or spinning disk drives in only 4U of datacenter rack space, and is expandable to support up to 396 disks in just 20U of rack space. Leveraging award-winning SFA OS real-time, highly parallel storage operating systems, the DDN SFA7700 is precision-engineered to deliver maximum storage performance extraction and is capable of achieving performance levels more than 700% greater than competing scale-out file storage platforms.

The SFA7700 is the first platform to feature DDN's new Storage Fusion Xcelerator™ Flash tiering technology, a suite of storage acceleration tools that combine spinning and solid state disk technology with application awareness to intelligently accelerate block- and file-based data access and delivery while also minimizing the total cost of storage acquisition. The SFA7700 is designed with a variety of DDN SFA software features that are engineered to minimize complexity and maximize efficiency of high-scale Big Data environments, including:

  • New Storage Fusion Xcelerator (SFX) portfolio of Flash acceleration tools:
    • SFX Read: Read caching to accelerate frequently accessed data
    • SFX Write: Accelerate writes while cost-reducing SSD protection
    • SFX: Instant Commit: Automatic cache warming of recent writes
    • SFX Context Commit: Application-driven intelligent data caching
  • DirectMon™: DDN's enterprise management and monitoring product suite, which provides one pane of glass for ease of management
  • DirectProtect™: A self-healing engine and data integrity protection suite
  • ReACT™: Real-time adaptive RAM cache management

With optional GRIDScaler™ and EXAScaler™ file storage technology from DDN, the SFA7700 is a modular scalable unit that cost-effectively scales file systems beyond 100GB/s while intelligently eliminating file storage hotspots with DDN's SFX Flash acceleration tools.

The DDN SFA7700 will be running live at SC12, the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis in Salt Lake City from November 12-15 at booth #1519.

The DDN SFA7700 will be available in early 2013 directly through DDN and via DDN's PartnerLink channel community. Please visit www.ddn.com/products/sfa7700 or contact your DDN sales rep for more information.
