SolidFire, Inc. Key Developments

SolidFire Announces Support for Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux

SolidFire announced production support of SolidFire's storage platforms with Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux. This collaboration extends the enterprise-grade Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux offering to customers using SolidFire.

SolidFire Confirms APAC Distributor Agreement with Nissho Electronics

SolidFire announced a distribution agreement with Nissho Electronics Corporation. The agreement represents a continuation of SolidFire's rapid global expansion and follows the opening of a regional HQ in Singapore in April 2014, and significant growth of SolidFire's Europe, Middle East and Africa teams. Under the agreement, Nissho will provide its network of resellers with access to SolidFire's SF3010, SF6010, and SF9010 scale-out/all-flash storage arrays. The distributor has also been provided with aggressive sales targets, highlighting SolidFire's strong growth plans for the region. As a result of the agreement, Nissho's resellers will be able to offer Japanese enterprises the solutions needed to meet today's IT performance demands while driving greater consolidation, automation and scale across their entire storage infrastructure. Japanese cloud service operators will also be able to take advantage of SolidFire's all-flash storage arrays to improve their profits by differentiating their service offerings and setting competitive prices. This is based on the QoS (Quality of Service) guarantee SolidFire brings to the storage layer, allowing cloud service operators to set effective and competitive pricing tailored to each service level. Each system is fully scalable, enabling rapid responses to changes in customer demand levels. Increasing pressure on enterprise IT to deliver fast and reliable services while keeping costs low has been felt globally, and Japan in particular is investing heavily in cloud, storage and data center infrastructure to solve this challenge.

SolidFire Announces AI for Virtual Infrastructure at Vmworld

SolidFire introduced the latest addition to its Agile Infrastructure family of converged infrastructure offerings. Built with SolidFire's all-flash storage system at the foundation, AI incorporates technology from VMware and Cisco into a pre-validated reference design. The combined solution enables accelerated deployment of a dynamic IT infrastructure that allows for unprecedented consolidation of mixed application workloads onto a single platform. With AI for Virtual Infrastructure, SolidFire has uniquely demonstrated the ability for enterprises to easily and efficiently accommodate the demands of mixed workloads from a single storage platform. Leveraging SolidFire's unique QoS capabilities, storage policies can be provisioned and enforced to isolate each workload while running simultaneously within a shared infrastructure. Demonstrating the mixed workload capabilities of architecture through the validation process, concurrent operations run on the AI design included: Boot storm of 200 VMware Horizon View desktops; 2 hosted Oracle OLTP database workloads running approximately 230,000 TPM; MongoDB job running 70 concurrent threads; Inline data reduction, including deduplication, compression and thin provisioning, driving 13.5x efficiency rates across all three workloads.
