Eliminate the Traditional
RAID Bottleneck

In Software-Composable Infrastructure (SCI), compute, storage, and networking resources are abstracted from their physical locations and can be managed with software via a web-based interface. SCI makes data center resources as readily available as cloud services and is the foundation for private and hybrid cloud solutions. Along with the emergence of NVMe SSD and NVMeoF technologies is the possibility for SCI to disaggregate storage resources without sacrificing performance and latency. As NVM SSD technology rapidly evolves however, a major performance bottleneck is introduced — RAID data protection.

In the HDD era, a simple ASIC on a RAID card was capable enough to handle all I/O – after all, even with SAS HDD, maximum performance was only around 200 IOPS and 150MB/s of throughput. However, in the SSD era a single NVMe SSD can deliver around 1 M IOPS and 7Gb/s of throughput. This results in a hardware RAID card or software RAID system that is unable to handle the massive performance leap of an SSD, and ends up being the biggest performance bottleneck of your storage infrastructure.

In addition, traditional hardware RAID cards require storage disks to be directly connected to the RAID card via cables, severely limiting their usefulness in modern Software-Composable Infrastructure or high performance applications.

The Solution

GRAID SupremeRAID™

Our innovative solution delivers world-record performance while increasing scalability, improving flexibility, and lowering the total cost of ownership. With proven performance tests and partnerships with global industry leaders, GRAID SupremeRAID™ removes the traditional RAID bottleneck to deliver maximum SSD performance, comprehensive data protection, and unmatched flexibility at the lowest TCO available.

In High Performance
Applications, Speed
and Throughput
Are Everything

Flexible & Future Ready
GRAID SupremeRAID™ revolutionary AI eliminates the traditional RAID bottleneck by pulling SSD resources from a remote JBOF to provision a storage volume for your high performance applications.

Free-Up CPU Resources
GRAID SupremeRAID™ shoulders all the IO processing and RAID computation burden, freeing-up your precious CPU resources for other applications, increasing your productivity and reducing costs.

Plug & Play
Unlike traditional hardware RAID cards, GRAID SupremeRAID™ doesn’t require extra cabling to connect SSD disks to the RAID card, eliminating the costs of refactoring your existing hardware system, and avoiding another potential point of failure.

Supports a Variety of NVMe Interfaces
GRAID SupremeRAID™ can be used with U.2, M.2 or even AIC NVMe interfaces, making SupremeRAID™ the most versatile NVMe SSD RAID card in the world.

User Friendly & Easy to Manage
GRAID SupremeRAID™ leverages its powerful computing and software capabilities to achieve up to 40x performance gain compared with a traditional RAID card without memory caching, eliminating the need for backup battery modules.

GRAID SupremeRAID™ Use Cases

“AI Training requires reading large amounts of data, a procedure that can take more than 12 hours with traditional solutions. Combining GRAID SupremeRAID™ and NFS over RDMA reduced the procedure to 2 hours—a huge productivity improvement.”

4K Video Surveillance

“To capture a car race with 4k video quality from different cameras requires more than 10GB/s write throughput. GRAID Technology is the only RAID solution to deliver this kind of performance with RAID5 data protection.”

— IT Director, Global Media Company

“When recording large amounts of high-definition video in a limited environment, a RAID1 solution might be able to keep up with the speed but it’s not cost efficient. GRAID Technology delivers RAID5/6 that matches the performance of RAID1, which pumps up the available space from 50% to 80+%. Not only is it good for cost savings but also makes a lot of things possible in this limited environment.”

SAN/NAS Storage Systems

“While most of the all-flash array vendors in the market only deliver up to 1.5M IOPS, GRAID Technology makes 10M IOPS possible with a single SupremeRAID™ card.”

— R&D Director, SAN Storage Company

“Current hardware RAID is obviously not the solution for local databases due to its latency and performance limitation for NVMe SSDs. GRAID SupremeRAID™ provides unbeatable performance and latency for databases to realize the full benefits of using NVMe SSDs.”
