Software module for building high performance RAID with flash devices (NVMe, SAS, SATA)
High Performance Software RAID for NVMe
NVMe drives are in average 3500 times more productive than standard HDD. Existing software and hardware solutions for leveraging NVMe devices significantly restrain their performance potential. Employing them, storage subsystem delivers only 35-50% speed out of hardware maximum.
We have designed advanced software technology to leverage productive work with NVMe that enables to utilize up to 97% of hardware performance capabilities. Such results comes from high I/O handling parallelization and lockless datapath.

This technology is embodied in RAIDIX ERA software.
Software RAID for utilizes up to 97% NVMe hardware performance
Software RAID for NVMe / SSD presented by Linux kernel module and management utility (CLI).


RAIDIX ERA is a software RAID presented by Linux kernel module and management utility (CLI).

• Installation by rpm / deb packages

• Adjusted for the most popular Linux distribution (Ubuntu, CentOS, Oracle)

• Works with local and remote drives

• Provides RAID as a standard Linux block device

High Performance

Usability and compatibility


• Wide range of RAID levels (including RAID 7.3)

• Works with local and remote drives

• Clients get array as a block device

• POSIX API support: no needs to adjust apps and file systems
• Less 20% CPU usage under maximum array loading

• Minimum RAM utilization: less 4 GiB for full-featured work
• 55.8GB/s and 10 400 000 IOps

• Latency less 100 us

• No performance penalty in mixed I/O workloads

• Low performance penalty in degraded mode

Product Benefits

Technology to Enhance Performance of All-Flash Storage

Our partners use RAIDIX ERA software to build storage systems for the most demanding applications and services in enterprise infrastructures, HPC and media industry.

Extra performance from RAIDIX ERA delivers additional value for partners' storage products. Significant throughput increment helps to reveal potential of all-flash solutions, extend market segments and reinforce competitive advantage.

Software RAID to Substitute Hardware Controller

Using RAIDIX ERA instead traditional hardware controller you obtain additional storage performance and simplify system maintenance.

• Much faster than hardware RAID controller
• Independent from hardware upgrades and modifications
• Simple migration between storage systems
• Frees one PCIe slot (for PCIe NVMe drives)
• Unlimited product lifetime
• Immune to physical damage


High-Performance RAID Software for Fast NVMe Storage Systems with Intel® Optane™ DC Storage

A performance test of RAIDIX ERA and Intel® Optane™ Solid State Drives (SSDs) demonstrate how to produce more value for high load tasks and utilize less drives to achieve needed level of performance.
