Businesses 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 flash Memory Arrays allow you to overcome these challenges and simply run all your applications and reporting systems at the speed of memory, with higher consolidation ratios, higher levels of availability and lower overall costs than legacy and SSD based solutions.

Simply Accelerate Your Business

Violin 6000 Series flash Memory Arrays are built from the ground up and hardware optimized to maximize the high-speed, low latency and low energy characteristics of flash memory. The unique architecture of Violin Memory Arrays delivers consistent, spike free, low latency measured in hundreds of microseconds to dramatically accelerate applications, as well as extreme amounts of IO 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.

Dramatically Reduce Infrastructure Costs

The 6000 Series ultra-low latency eliminates the time application server CPUs typically waste “waiting for I/O” from the storage subsystem. By allowing more work to be performed in less CPU cycles, Violin Memory Arrays enable significant reductions of the number of CPU cores required for a given workload, translating into dramatically lower application and database license costs.

The 6000 Series all silicon architecture delivers massive performance and capacity density (up to 70TB raw in 3 rack units) at a fraction of the power and cooling requirements of alternative solutions. Additionally, Violin Memory Operating System (vMOS) software allows you to run IO intensive workloads on vMOS space efficient snapshots thus eliminating the wasted capacity for full clones or duplicate infrastructure.

The net benefit is an instant return on investment supported by cost savings from all layers of your IT infrastructure – storage consolidation, server consolidation, and application software license reductions.

Achieve Mission Critical Reliability

All active components in a 6000 Series flash Memory Array have built-in, hardware controlled protection and redundancy. All components are hot swappable, allowing non-disruptive hardware maintenance. All software and firmware (down to the flash controller firmware on the Violin Intelligent Memory Modules) can also be upgraded without application downtime.

Phone-home capabilities ensure that Violin is automatically alerted of system issues – in some cases, before you have picked up the phone to call Violin services. In addition, patented flash-optimized vRAID algorithms, complemented by multi-layer ECC algorithms and continuous data integrity checks, automatically protect all data in a Memory Array.
