Silicon Routers and 10,000 VMware View Users – Whiptail

Whiptail launched “INVICTA” today and put on the big boy pants and lost the lizard and have a fresh new look. INVICTA is really a silicon router that allows there all SSD arrays now called ACCELA form a pool of storage, working as one unit. Today you can add up to 6 nodes with INVICTA, 72 TB of NAND flash, sustained bandwidth beyond 6 GB/s and a sustained IOPS beyond 600,000. Whiptail uses all standard MLC based flash so the price point is good and the SSD life span is really amazing. I have heard over 2 PB hitting an INVICTA setup and only have 2% wear on the drives.
