Violin 6100 Series All Flash Array

Accelerate your business and reduce your infrastructure costs with the data center storage designed for mixedand multiple workloads.


Enterprises increasingly expect and depend on real-­‐time transaction processing and real-­‐time insights from their IT infrastructure. However, delivering on these business expectations at significant scale has historically been difficult due to cost and technical limitations. Violin 6000 Series All Flash Arrays allow you to overcome these challenges and simply run all your applications and reporting systems at flash speed with higher consolidation ratios, higher levels of availability and lower overall costs than legacy disk, hybrid or SSD-­‐based solutions.

Simply Accelerate Your Business

Violin 6000 Series All Flash Arrays are built from the ground up and hardware optimized to maximize the high-­‐speed, low latency and low energy characteristics of flash technology. The unique architecture of Violin All Flash Arrays deliver consistent, spike free, low latency measured in hundreds of microseconds to dramatically accelerate applications, as well as extreme amounts of I/O per second (up to 1 million IOPS) to drive new levels of storage consolidation. This game changing combination of sustained low latency and performance scale makes the 6000 Series the storage of choice for scale-­‐out virtual infrastructure configurations, transactional business critical applications and advanced real-­‐time big data analytics environments.

Data Center Workloads

There are a number of all-­‐flash arrays available today. Only one has Violin’s Flash Fabric Architecture™ which provides the performance, resilience and low operating costs that enterprises demand. The FFA does not use SSDs, but rather mounts flash chips on our own card design, then inserts into our proprietary backplane design with multiple paths, redundancy, and controller technology to get the most from flash technology. The result is consistent low latency, hot plug components, redundancy for availability, low operating costs due to high density for an enterprise storage solution that enables new levels of consolidation for all kinds of workloads. The 6000 Series All Flash Arrays with FFA deliver massive performance and capacity density (up to 70TB in 3 rack units) at a fraction of the power and cooing requirements of alternative solutions. Additionally, Violin Memory Operating System (vMOS) software allows you to run I/O intensive workloads on vMOS space efficient snapshots thus eliminating the wasted capacity for full clones or duplicate infrastructure. All software and firmware (down to the flash controller firmware on the Violin Intelligent Memory Modules) can also be upgraded without application downtime (NDU).

6000 Series Members

Violin 6000 Series All Flash Arrays are comprised of three members: 6600 with SLC flash for ultimate performance, the 6200 with excellent performance and enterprise capacities making it the workhorse of the data center, and the 6100 for a mid-­‐tier enterprise solution with smaller capacities and good performance. Violin unique patented capabilities ensure that you get high availability, sustained performance, and lowest cost for all your applications, physical or virtualized.
