WINDOWS SERVER 2012 on ECHOSTREAMS FlacheSAN2 system performance white papers


Echostreams is teaming up with CacheIO and Orange Silicon Valley to demonstrate 2 Million tpmC Flash Storage at ISC2014 in Leipzig, Germany

Leipzig, Germany - June 22 , 2014 -. Echostreams Innovative Solutions, LLC today Announced the proof-of-concept for an all-SSD Demo-Flash Storage Solution for High-Performance-Computing at International Supercomputing Conference 2014, Reaching 2 million Transactions per minute running Oracle RAC 12c Performance test. The benchmark test at Orange Silicon Valley consists of five commodity servers running Oracle 12c Real Application Cluster software, CacheIO FlashCache Appliance based on Echostreams patented FlacheSAN2 flash server, and commodity iSCSI array. For detailed configuration and test results, please Visit http://www.cacheio.com/osv_benchmark . BESIDES High IOPs and tpmC, FlacheSAN2 Also Provides up to 170 Gbit / s throughput Sustained random Read. For More Information, please Visit www.echostreams.com.

Many Enterprises are looking to increase the performance of their mission critical databases to accelerate their business processes. The emerging all-flash storage arrays require a complete replacement of existing disk arrays, incurring high capital and data migration costs, as well as lacking in mature storage management features that customers have depended on for years, Server-side flash does not scale to cache all active data, making its latency and throughput profile more similar to that of spinning disks than flash memory, "said Bang Change, CEO of CacheIO." CacheIO network cache scales to 23TB flash capacity per RU (Rack Unit) at one-fifth the cost of all-flash arrays, servicing all active data at sub millisecond latency while increasing disk array utilization from 30% to 80%. As a shared network resource, CacheIO Flash cache Allows service Providers and Enterprise Customers to Monetize Performance by dynamically based on service Provisioning Performance Level Agreements. "

"We are Always looking for Emerging Technology database that can Accelerate Performance and Increase disk utilization and Help U.S. Also Preserve existing legacy Storage Investments to serve the ever increasing need for capacity. CacheIO has demonstrated one of the top Transactions-Per-Minute benchmark results accelerating low cost iSCSI SATA storage. To a service provider like Orange, it has the important benefit of provisioning performance based on SLAs, allowing us to Monetize Performance as a utility "-. Said Jerome Laudouar, VP, IT Infrastructure Technologies & Engineering of Orange .

"Storage used to be the bottleneck in Supercomputing environment and being neglected due to limitation of rotating drives. With Flash SSD Performance With Technology Maturing and the abundance of I / O bandwidth offered by the Intel Xeon server platforms, we are able to create unique and purpose-built solutions to improve and push the storage performance envelope to a new high. FlacheSAN2 solution is designed specifically for SSD flash to address the performance bottleneck while increasing energy efficiency and storage density, "said Gene Lee, President and CEO of Echostreams Innovative Solutions." Our FlacheSAN2 solution provides users twice the storage capacity and twice the performance while able to maintain less CapEx and OpEx costs compare to any competing solution . "

Echostreams Partners with Mellanox and Enmotus Showcasing Tiered-Storage at NAB 2014

Echostreams showcases FlacheSAN1 server at NAB 2014 Las Vegas with Mellanox and Enmotus tiered storage performing 3 sustainable 4K (4096x2160) streams throughput in a short depth 1U server at just under 300W of power consumption.
 
City of Industry, CA – April 2, 2014 – Echostreams Innovative Solutions, LLC. today announced the FlacheSAN1, tiered SSD and HDD storage array OEM platform with 20x hot-swappable 6Gbps SATA drives, has achieved a new performance height by having four Flash SSD and 16 hard drives transmitting concurrently three 4K video resolutions concurrently each over FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand or 40Gb/s Ethernet with RoCE links, out of a single 1U tiered storage server. For high throughput applications such as post production workflow, ingesting, editing, color grading, and media rendering this system can sustain three 4K streams concurrently and improves users productivity.
 
“Echostreams’ adoption of Mellanox 56Gb/s Virtual Protocol Interconnect® adapter enables access to storage over RDMA which eliminates performance bottlenecks, associated with manipulations of very large size files, that are typically used in the broadcasting industry,” said Motti Beck, Director Enterprise Market Development at Mellanox Technologies. “Using our most advanced interconnect makes the Echostreams’ FlacheSAN1 platform an extremely cost-effective but high performance white box OEM solution for this market”
 
The Echostreams FlacheSAN1 solution employs a new class of real-time storage tiering software from Enmotus, allowing the platform to support a high performance hybrid storage configuration using standard off-the-shelf SSDs and HDDs at a substantially lower cost per terabyte than pure SSD based systems. “We are delighted that Echostreams has chosen to use our FuzeDrive™ software,” said Andy Mills, President and CEO of Enmotus, Inc. “FuzeDrive clearly demonstrates that tiered hybrid storage has an important role to play in even the most demanding storage applications, offering users SSD class performance with HDD capacities.”  
 
“At Echostreams we are always looking for solutions for specific vertical markets to eliminate any pain points,” said Gene Lee, President and CEO of Echostreams Innovative Solutions. “With 4K resolution media becoming more mainstream, equipment offerings remain prohibitively expensive and only major players in industry can afford them. With our FlacheSAN1 combining high throughput and affordability from Mellanox and Enmotus, we have been able to minimize customers’ cost problems allowing independent studios and mainstream market to take advantage of the latest available technologies.”

Echostreams teams up with LSI and Microsoft to demonstrate high-availability virtualized shared storage for media professionals at NAB 2014 in Las Vegas at LVCC booth No.SL10810

Company showcases a complete family of Microsoft Server 2012 R2 certified cluster-in-a-box redundant platforms designed for OEMs, ranging from entry-level UP Intel E3 Haswell to top-of-the-line DP E5 Ivy Bridge, enhanced with LSI Syncro™® CS 9271-8i active/active redundant RAID adapters. 

City of Industry, CA – April 2nd, 2014 – Echostreams Innovative Solutions, LLC. today announced the availability of an entire family of redundant server platforms, DuraStreams™,  that are designed specifically for various Small-Medium-Business (SMB) verticals, with the support of the latest LSI Syncro® CS HA DAS technology. These platforms are certified under Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 for continuous availability, ideal for OEMs, System Integrators and Value-Added-Resellers building “Business in a Box” and “Branch in a Box” all-in-one Windows Server Hyper-V appliances. Knowing there are different needs coming from different SMB verticals that cannot be satisfied with “one-size-fits-all” approach, Echostreams has developed not one, but five different cluster-in-a-box redundant platforms supporting E3, E5-1400, E5-1600, and E5-2600 platforms. Environments suitable for these cluster-in-a-box redundant platforms include Retail, Medical/Dental Offices, Hotels & Restaurants, Education, Media & Broadcasting, and many others.
 
“LSI Syncro solutions enables increased data protection with enterprise-class high availability and flexibility never before offered in a DAS-based cluster-in-a-box system like the new Echostreams DuraStreams solutions,” said Jas Tremblay, vice president of marketing, Datacenter Solutions Group, LSI. “As companies continue to deal with massive data growth, Echostreams DuraStreams solutions are an effective way for SMBs to deliver cost-effective high-availability storage that is easy to configure and manage.”
 
“Traditional approach for high availability requires multiple clustered servers plus a redundant storage subsystem.” said Gene Lee, President and CEO of Echostreams Innovative Solutions. “However, we believe an all-in-one cluster-in-a-box high-availability server equipped with LSI’s dual active hardware RAID controller, Syncro CS solutions offers tremendous values to typically resource-constrained small and medium businesses. Every business should be able to afford a robust IT infrastructure to sustain its continuous operation and growth, and our DuraStreams product line is designed exactly for that purpose.”
