Datrium says its server powered storage system reduces storage costs and complexity


Storage service provider Datrium said its server powered storage system significantly reduces storage costs and complexity and delivers higher speeds than many all-flash arrays.

Datrium DVX is the first storage system to split server-powered speed from appliance-based durable capacity.

A 32-host DVX with the new NetShelf can reach up to 1 million IOPS, using data-reduced commodity server flash capacity, at a radically lower price than array flash.

Datrium said the DVX is server-powered, not appliance- or server-only compared to other storage systems on the market today. Performance for IO and data services uses VM host cores, and data is kept on server-local SSDs for fast, off-network reads.

“Enterprise IT is becoming too dynamic for the rigidity and expense of storage arrays,” said Brian Biles, CEO of Datrium.

“With the DVX, Datrium is proving that storage can be as agile and simple to operate as VMs themselves and also provide phenomenal improvements in price/performance.”

Datrium said the new offering supports up to 32 hosts, for an aggregate 1M IOPS. NetShelf D12X4 write bandwidth across a 10Gb link is up to 800 MB/sec., similar to a 12 Gb SAS-attached drive shelf.

Datrium DVX is available immediately in the U.S. from Datrium resellers.  International sales will begin in the second half of 2016.The DVX list price is $125,000.

This includes a NetShelf D12X4 appliance and unlimited licenses for DVX Hyperdriver software on vSphere hosts. The NetShelf D12X4 appliance comes with 48 TB raw, or 60TB – 180TB effective capacity at common deduplication and compression rates for Enterprise data (2x-6x).
