HGST Distributor in South Korea Chooses RAIDIX as Their Data Storage Software
RAIDIX Korea submitted a RAIDIX-powered data storage system for testing to Wooriro Co. Ltd., a key distributor of HGST, a Western Digital brand, in South Korea. The tests of the RAIDIX management software along with HGST’s storage platforms unveiled maximum available performance, pushing the limits of Fibre Channel 8/16G. Impressed with the outcomes, Wooriro selected RAIDIX as the key component for one of its data storage lineups.
RAIDIX has had a strong foothold in Korea since 2013. In the past few years, RAIDIX Korea executed a series of major implementations in the local governmental and commercial organizations. The RAIDIX technology gained recognition on the Korean market due to functional and licensing flexibility, savings up to 70 percent as opposed to industrial vendor-locked solutions, high density, and seamless scalability on the fly.
The RAIDIX solutions ensure top performance and fault-tolerance in video surveillance for Korean megacities, as well as business process support for large-scale enterprises and industrial plants across the country. For expanding existing customer infrastructures, RAIDIX utilizes storage platforms from HGST, a Western Digital brand. RAIDIX’s universal compatibility with JBODs (just a bunch of disks) allows the customer to smoothly increase storage capacity avoiding downtime or performance degradation.
In response to the growing demand for All Flash devices in the region, RAIDIX Korea and the local partners have laid the technical foundation for a turnkey solution building on commodity hardware, the RAIDIX software and Flash-based enclosures.
In the run-up to a comprehensive solution, Wooriro Co. Ltd. tested RAIDIX-powered data storage system enhanced with HGST’s 2U24 Flash Storage Platform, with respect to compatibility and performance parameters.
2U24 Flash Storage Platform features include:
- All Flash platform housing up to 24 Ultrastar® 2.5” SAS SSD modules, or 24 CloudSpeed™ Gen II SATA SSD modules
- Available SSD capacities: 7.68TB, 3.84TB, 1.92TB, and 960GB
- 12 SSDs in the minimum configuration
- Up to 4.7M IOPS, 23 GB/s throughput; latencies below 1ms
- Up to six 12Gb/s SAS3 connections to host
- 2 rack units.
According to the tests, the system revealed peak performance on read and write, and proved eligible for supporting the heavy workloads in Enterprise, Video Analytics, HPC and other vertical applications.
