Forte Hyperconverged NVMe Appliances provide the fastest NVMe storage in market. With Hadoop®, Ceph©, or BeeGFS® preinstalled, Forte is a rethinking of connectivity between I/O devices and CPU/RAM/network. Forte unlocks hardware efficiencies, capitalizing on its strengths to place incredible speed in your hands:
Forte supports the following:
Scalable Informatics purpose-built platforms are crafted for high performance and simplicity of deployment. From end-to-end, each solution is backed by Scalable Informatics’ expertise.
Scalable Informatics has extensively tested and tuned the Forte FastPath Appliance for balanced performance of network, compute, and storage. These systems are an expert coupling of hardware, system, and software to deliver the fastest platform and they are ready for expansion. Forte is tuned and optimized for storage.
Ceph, BeeGFS/FhGFS, and HDFS have related architectures, but each filesystem manages metadata and data replication in a slightly different manner. All modern distributed filesystems are dependent upon each system’s local filesystem for performance, correctness, and fault tolerance. Each system is shipped configured by Scalable Informatics for your filesystem and storage configuration.
Scalable Informatics Forte appliances are designed and optimized your NVMe storage needs.
