In the dynamic landscape of data storage and management, the evolution of technology continues to revolutionize how businesses handle their critical information. A recent application note delves into the synergy between Graid Technology and ScaleFlux, showcasing how their collaborative approach not only enhances user experiences but also addresses the pivotal challenge of tail latency in data centers.

Reinventing RAID for Modern Demands

Since its inception in the late ’80s, Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks (RAID) has been a cornerstone of storage solutions. However, as technology has rapidly progressed, the challenges faced by modern RAID systems have evolved. With the exponential growth in IO performance and the rise of latency as a critical metric, traditional RAID configurations face hurdles in meeting contemporary demands.

The Role of SSD Latency and Transparent Compression

The PDF outlines the intricate workings of Solid-State Drives (SSDs) and the impact of latency, particularly concerning read tail latency. It explores how ScaleFlux’s CSD-3000 series NVMe SSDs, armed with transparent compression in the datapath, alleviate the effects of write IOs on NAND media, thereby reducing latency and enabling smoother operations, especially in conjunction with RAID solutions.

Overcoming Latency Challenges

Addressing SSD latency limitations, the document highlights various strategies to mitigate tail latency. It discusses the limits of vertical scaling through increased NAND Flash die and introduces the concept of horizontal scaling, necessitating the addition of more SSDs to support workloads.

Leveraging Graid Technology for Latency Management

Graid Technology’s SupremeRAID™ SR-1000 introduces a novel approach by offloading compute-intensive RAID calculations to a GPU, optimizing performance and effectively managing latency. This innovative architecture ensures near-native NVMe SSD performance while upholding reliability and capacity management, crucial for meeting stringent latency Service Level Agreements (SLAs).

Evaluating Latency Profiles and Conclusion

Through extensive evaluations and performance tests involving a collection of CSD-3310 NVMe SSDs integrated into a RAID 5 pool, the application note demonstrates the exceptional capabilities of SupremeRAID in creating virtual volumes that outperform physical volumes. It showcases the tool’s capacity to manage tail latency, offering consistent, low-latency performance at multi-million IOPS levels.
