American Megatrends Launches New StorTrends 2610i All-Flash Array

Monday: January 2, 2017

NORCROSS, GA - American Megatrends Inc. (AMI) today announced the release of its StorTrends 2610i All-flash Array. Optimized to support VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix and RHEV enterprises of all sizes, the StorTrends 2610i is a full flash array that delivers dramatic enterprise performance and reliability at an extremely affordable price point.

The 2610i offers both Deduplication and Compression for space savings. StorTrends Customers see on average a 4:1 dedupe and compression ratio in virtualized environments. With dedupe and compression enabled, a mixed workload of 8K blocks split into 70% Read I/O and 30% Write I/O achieves 117,400 IOPS. StorTrends deploys a split tier within the 2610i for hot data and cold data. The hot data is stored in a non-deduped, non-compressed tier for extreme performance. When data within this tier becomes infrequently accessed, it is then deduplicated and compressed while being migrated down into the cold tier. Both the hot and cold tiers are comprised of SSDs allowing for extreme IOPS and sub-1ms sustained latency. To help users maximize the value of the appliance, the StorTrends 2610i SSD Array provides the following benefits: thin provisioning, auto data tiering, WAN optimized replication, as well as compatibility with legacy StorTrends solutions, without additional costly licensing fees.

"Flash-based storage systems offer compelling performance benefits over traditional hard disk drive (HDD) storage systems, but until now have been too costly for many organizations," said Justin Bagby, director of the StorTrends Division of American Megatrends. "Our storage arrays break that barrier by providing the right blend of high performance, high availability and scalability to meet enterprise application requirements at extremely affordable prices."

The 2610i is available in over 100 configurations to meet each customer’s specific needs and performance specifications with configurations starting at under $.50 per gig effective capacity. StorTrends solutions are offered with the StorAID support program which includes 24 x 7 technical phone support. For more information, please visit: StorTrends 2610i.
