"Tremendous computational power…GRAID SupremeRAID™ delivers superior performance while increasing scalability, improving flexibility, and lowering TCO by utilizing the computational power of the GPU."
(STORAGEREVIEW.COM, Harold Fritts, April 25, 2022) - This week GRAID Technology has announced the release of the SupremeRAID™ SR-1010, and according to the press release, “the world’s fastest NVMe/NVMeoF RAID card designed to deliver the full potential of PCIe Gen4 systems in enterprise data centers.” The SupremeRAID™ SR-1010 increases the performance of both reads and writes while maintaining data protection; read the independent review below.
Introducing the GRAID SupremeRAID™ SR-1010 for PCIe Gen 4
StorageReview provided an in-depth review of the SupremeRAID™ SR-1000 following the initial launch in the summer of 2021. By all indications, the product lived up to the marketing claims. The latest release is based on the NVIDIA A2000 GPU and improves overall performance for both reads and writes. The SupremeRAID™ SR-1010 supports RAID levels 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, and up to 32 physical drives. Available support for most versions of UNIX as well as support for Windows Server 2019 and 2022.
The SupremeRAID™ SR-1010 is the ﬁrst NVMe and NVMeoF RAID card to unlock the full potential for SSD performance. As detailed in the original SR-1000 review, the SupremeRAID™ card directly processes the I/O, relieving the CPU of this duty. And, because the card is a GPU, there’s tremendous computational power on the card, which doesn’t exist on standard RAID cards. The GRAID solution delivers superior performance while increasing scalability, improving ﬂexibility, and lowering the total cost of ownership by utilizing the computational power of the GPU.
The RAID protection itself is out-of-path, meaning data can flow from CPU to storage without needing to go through the SupremeRAID™ card. GRAID has an integrated AI engine that runs on the card and makes the entire ecosystem operate efficiently.
The SupremeRAID™ SR-1010 increases read performance to 19M IOPS, and 110 GB/s throughput and increases write performance to 1.1M IOPS and 22 GB/s throughput in RAID 5/6 while maintaining a high level of data protection. The SupremeRAID™ SR-1010 leverages the same software stack as the SupremeRAID™ SR-1000 and will co-exist in the GRAID Technology portfolio alongside the SR-1000.
The SupremeRAID™ SR-1010 is also feature-rich, offering compression, encryptions, and thin provisioning. Installation is as easy as plug & play and does not require cabling or reworking the motherboard layout.
General availability of the SupremeRAID™ SR-1010 is slated for May 1 by placing orders through GRAID’s authorized resellers or OEM partners. More information is available on the GRAID website. We have one of the cards in the lab now. You can see a brief video intro on YouTube, Instagram or TikTok.
