Flash Memory Summit 2014 - Jay Prassl, the VP of MArketing with SolidFire, stopped by to chat with us on the unique features of their all flash arrays. SolidFire arrays come in a slim 1U chasis and are designed to be aggregated in scale-out architectures. A focus on a compelling mix of high-availability features, predictable performance, and automated management has made SolidFire the top choice for large customers, such as EBay.
Protecting data is always the most important task of any storage system, and SolidFire handles this with a shared-nothing architecture that stripes data across multiple nodes. An entire node can go offline and the system still chugs along at the same performance level. They also have other unique features, such as backing up and restoring from object storage environments.
