StorONE and Seagate partner to maximise SSD performance specs

StorONE has revealed record speeds using Seagate SSD drives and StorONE’s TRU™ S1 Software Defined Storage solution.


In recent performance testing, StorONE combined its software with Seagate’s enterprise-class SSDs in a virtual appliance configuration that reached a breakthrough half a million IOPS with 24 Seagate SSDs and all enterprise-class data protection features running. The high-availability, failure-proof VMware cluster with two nodes achieved this throughput on random reads (4K) and 180,000 IOPS on random writes (4K) with latency of less than 0.2 milliseconds.

The StorONE Unified Virtual Appliance configuration with Seagate drives eliminates the storage performance problems caused by server virtualization. StorONE software runs in a simple ESXi VM using very little memory and compute and does not require expensive server configurations, big memory caches, or other expensive add-on products. The virtual appliance supports all hypervisor platforms including VMware, Hyper-V, KVM, and Oracle VM.

“StorONE’s software elicits the extreme performance of our SSDs in meeting the needs of mission-critical applications,” said Ravi Naik, CIO and SVP Corporate Strategy at Seagate. “With StorONE’s software, users can achieve the maximum utilization of resources from our solid state drives, getting the best possible TCO via optimized storage capacity and performance.”

“Seagate drives offer superior drive design and reliability for enterprise use, and our tests show they offer performance beyond their competitors,” said Gal Naor, StorONE co-founder and CEO. “We are very proud to have the world’s leading data solutions company as an early investor and partner, on whose drive technology we can reach incredible throughput and deliver all essential data services for managing and protecting data.”

StorONE gives the user, for the first time, the full value of the storage resources they purchased. With StorONE’s TRU S1 software, a customer’s hardware investment will match the rated IOPS, throughput, and capacity of the drives regardless of whether they are SSD, NVMe or HDD. In addition, StorONE’s TRU storage software includes enterprise storage features such as unlimited snapshots; support for all storage protocols (block, file, and object) on the same drives; support for iSCSI, Fibre Channel, NFS, and S3; and support for all drive types in the same server. It is also the first and only software solution that can be used for all-flash or hybrid arrays, virtual storage, secondary storage, or cloud storage so there is no need to integrate multiple storage solutions when users can get it in one single software solution.
