IKYU Corporation Selects Violin Memory, Inc.'s 6000 All Flash Array Solution

Violin Memory, Inc. announced that IKYU Corporation, has selected the Violin 6000 All Flash Array solution to support its mission-critical system as the corporation adds additional new services. Violin delivered the array solution working closely with its channel partner, Macnica Networks, a Japanese leading importer, developer and distributor of network products and solutions. Violin all-flash array solutions deliver input/output (I/O) and ultra-low data access latencies not possible with traditional storage systems. With full resiliency and a full software suite of storage services, the Violin 6000 family provides high reliability with hot swapping for non-disruptive hardware maintenance. In order to provide the best service to its customers IKYU required one million IOPS. Violin's all-flash array delivered one million IOPS, while also providing higher reliability compared to other flash storage products. With the deployment of Violin all-flash arrays, IKYU's online web application improved query response times to deliver immediate request results within a few seconds to support 80 million data reads without caching technology. Batch processing times were 8x faster. Violin all-flash arrays also improved operational efficiency not only with simple processing time reduction, but also with a significant increase in the number of parallel processing threads concurrently executable.

Violin Memory, Inc. Announces New Pay-as-You-Grow Capacity Pricing Option and New Models for Windows Flash Arrays

Violin Memory, Inc. announced worldwide availability of an innovative, flexible pricing model that enables customers to align storage investment with capacity as it is consumed, along with four new Windows Flash Array (WFA) configurations. For Violin Memory authorized resellers and their end-users, this offering addresses the need for all-flash storage solutions that meet the performance requirements of business critical applications with the comprehensive data services provided by the Windows Flash Array. In addition, the available capacity footprints allow their end-users to buy what they need now and cost-effectively expand as business grows. Violin Memory is adding 17.5, 26, 35, and 52TB configurations to the WFA product family. The new entry points address the market for lower raw capacity all-flash offerings, while delivering the enterprise-class resiliency and data services as the currently shipping WFA-64. The workhorse WFA configuration - with 70TB of raw capacity, scalable to 280TB - was announced in April and offers enterprise data services such as replication, snapshots, thin provisioning, deduplication, and compression. In addition to new capacity and price points, Violin's unique "pay-as-you-grow" pricing model allows customers to scale their storage non-disruptively through new capacity software license-based expansion options that deliver 8.8TB increments of raw all-flash capacity. This pay-as-you-grow approach enables customers to deploy the WFA and immediately benefit from its high performance and enterprise data services while increasing capacity over time. The flexibility of the WFA doesn't end with capacity, as customers have a choice in how they interconnect the all-flash array with their existing infrastructure. The WFA family supports either 56 Gb FDR InfiniBand or 10 Gb Ethernet. In both cases, customers benefit from the efficiency and high performance afforded by SMB Direct and the rest of the SMB 3.0 feature set. In addition, the WFA supports NFS 3.0 and NFS 4.1 for connectivity with application servers running operating systems such as Linux and UNIX. WFA-based file shares are simultaneously available as Windows file shares over SMB 3 and as NFS exports to simplify data sharing across the data center. There are no artificial data silos separating SMB- and NFS-based applications with the WFA - just seamless integration of high performance, easily accessible all-flash storage.
