WEKA Performance Benchmarks on Intel® x86 Platforms

Shared Accelerated Storage (SAS) is a new category of software centric storage that decouples storage services from the underlying physical hardware and uses solid-state drive (SSD) technology to deliver extremely high performance and low latency. The result is a hardware independent storage architecture based on industry standard servers, memory, networking, and storage devices that is both agile and highly responsive to the applications it supports. This technology brief illustrates how the WekaIO MatrixTM storage platform provides unprecedented file-based storage performance and scalability in private and hybrid cloud environments, leveraging Intel’s high-performance processors, networking, and solid-state drive technology, delivered on Dell servers. Enterprises will benefit from improved infrastructure flexibility, reduced storage costs, and better performance and scalability.
