High performance software RAID specifically designed for the 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
