Hyperconverged Compute and Storage

Coupling high-performance computing and fast storage in one appliance removes I/O bottlenecks for greater bandwidth, higher IOPS and increased I/O throughput. JackRabbit provides significantly more data processing power per unit rack space for cloud, cluster, computational, and storage workloads than traditional NAS/SAN systems.

Scalable Informatics provides the fastest platform for traders, media, Big Data, and any HPC application.

JackRabbit provides up to 480 TB in a 4U rack unit, up to 4.8 PB per rack, with up to 70 GB/s per rack to/from spinning disk, and up to 80 GB/s of network bandwidth per rack.

Software-defined storage can be configured with a wide range of solutions, operating systems, networks, and storage devices.
