Patriot's Artemis II: 56 Inferno SSDs Burn the Benchmarks Down

Patriot's Artemis II: 56 Inferno SSDs Burn the Benchmarks Down

| Storage News | Posted: Jun 9, 2010 3:21 pm

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - What do you call 56 SandForce 200GB SSDs, 7 LSI SATA / SAS RAID Controllers, 1 Supermicro dual Xeon Workstation board, dual Antec 1000 watt PSUs and a couple of hours spent setting it all up? Patriot is calling the setup Artemis II but I think we all agree that anything other than bad ass is an understatement.

It might not be the most conventional SSD array but it is the most impressive found at Computex this year.

Seven LSI 9260-8i controllers like the one we use here at the office for testing SAS drives fill the Supermicro workstation board. Each controller is capable to running 8 drives without using an expander. Patriot also managed to shove 12, 4GB sticks of memory in the board.

14 Patriot Convoy 425S Drive Bays were needed; each one is the same size of a standard DVD ROM but can hold up to 4 2.5" drives.

The end result, amazing! We will let you know what happens when we call Mary today and try to sample an Artemis II. I am sure she has one of these sitting in the corner of her office with our name on it.
