EMC launched XtremIO arrays, the first to use flash memory alone.





the flash memory to dramatically change the business organization. Many organizations start to use memory flash a number of EMC itself was moved to the memory flash, with the acquisition of Star up to the storage array is XtremIO in May of. 2012, after leaving a long time now, EMC has launched its first storage array flash is all in the name XtremIO “X-Brick”

X-Brick is a 1U rackmount enclosure cabinet with two controllers. Together with CPU, 32-core RAM 512GB capacity fiber ports and iSCSI each 4 ports inside the SSD included 25 individuals with a combined capacity of 10TB per enclosure connected together to share a capacity for up to 4 cars through the camera. Switch Infiniband (Read the full specification of EMC )

XtremIO is the hallmark of the memory scale-out cabinet can be added without sacrificing performance because every body has its own controller. The specification, one cabinet can be read at 150,000 IOPS / 250,000 IOPS on a maximum of four cabinets can be read at 600,000 IOPS / 1,000,000 IOPS, while the response time is maintained at 0.5 ms regardless of whether. X-Brick few cabinets or


XtremIO has a capacity of not much compared to the other arrays. The information is stored into the memory, coupled with finger. And has its own unique number. Stored in RAM Therefore no redundant EMC calls this feature the Shared In-Memory Metadata will be retrieved when it is applied to the fingerprint verification system. And has worked on high performance RAM. Example quoted is to create virtual machine can be done 20 times faster

in terms of protecting a system called XtremIO XtremIO Data Protection (XDP), which uses the advantages of RAID are integrated together. And customized for the memory flash, especially with XDP make XtremIO can use a high level with RAID 5 data safe level RAID 6 for performance than RAID 1 can use SSD for longer, because the XDP will. not forced to rewrite all the time. Without any setting

for the XtremIO to use the EMC introduced three major groups. Following:

  • the database – because XtremIO the delay (latency) is very low, only 0.5 ms and a high bandwidth. Thereby reducing the license of the software process database to another (such as Oracle RAC)
  • use in Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) – Originally VDI is not as popular in the organization because it is not worth it when compared to the PC, really. The user experience is reduced features into it, but the coming of XtremIO solve these problems with IOPS plenty enough to no boot storm and one rack applications up to 1,000 VDI ability to clone. speed Compared to the PC, now making it cheaper than VDI enough
  • use Virtualization – with the ability to accommodate. Diverse Virtualization (VMWare, Xen, Hyper-V) can be used to replace it immediately. Reducing redundant information and features Keep up to speed in a flash memory disk. It can clone virtual machine with a very high speed. But reduced to just half-rack size only

For now, EMC has a flash memory model XtremIO only one X-Brick capacity 10TB of capacity per cabinet versions above (20TB) will debut in January on
