Dual DSSD D5 systems will soon be available in a single rack. Striping the two systems together delivers twice the IOPS, bandwidth and capacity; one-third the latency, and a lower TCO than the fastest solution for databases on the market today, the company claims.
DSSD is also being added to VCE VxRack for improved performance while retaining availability, reliability, and productivity.
"The combination of the blazing fast performance of D5 and EMC’s industry-leading VxRack converged infrastructure platform offers customers a fully-engineered system to realise unprecedented time to value for their applications."
Asked how well the systems perform, EMC converged platforms division president Chad Sakac said "we can do 300 million IOPS" with 100GbE networking and a fully distributed system. "It's a system-level question... at some point the fabric becomes the bottleneck" rather than the performance of the storage subsystem itself.
"We can smoke HP," he added.
Dual DSSD D5 systems and VxRack System with DSSD will both be available in the second half of 2016.
