The Future of Enterprise Data Protection
Software Composable Infrastructure (SCI)
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 NVMe SSD technology rapidly evolves however, a major performance bottleneck is introduced -- RAID data protection.
Traditionally, hardware RAID cards or software RAID systems have been used to protect data from disk failure. 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 one million 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.
Welcome To The Future of Enterprise Data Performance
GRAID SupremeRAID™ is the world's first NVMe RAID card to deliver maximum available SSD performance, offering a new way for enterprise data centers to achieve record-breaking NVMe SSD or NVMeoF performance without sacrificing data security or business continuity.
Our disruptive software plus hardware solution unlocks the traditional performance bottleneck of RAID protection for SSDs. It's also the world’s first NVMeoF RAID solution that not only protects direct-attached SSDs but also those connected via NVMe over Fabrics (NVMeoF).
The cutting edge technology of SupremeRAID™ eliminates the traditional RAID bottleneck to unlock the full potential of your SSD performance. A single SupremeRAID™ card is capable of delivering 6 million IOPS and 100GB/s of throughput.
Software Composable Infrastructure-ready
Pulling SSD resources from a remote JBOF to provision a storage volume for your application is now possible with GRAID SupremeRAID™
Free-Up CPU Resources for Other Applications
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
Since traditional Hardware RAID cards use an ASIC with only limited processing power, they also require a memory caching module in order to reach satisfactory performance levels. And to maintain data integrity of the cache in the event of a power loss, a battery backup is also required. The RAID card will suffer a huge performance drop if the battery backup module is exhausted, as it will need to switch to write-through mode in order to preserve data integrity.
A GRAID SupremeRAID™ card can leverage its powerful computing and software capabilities to achieve up to 40x performance gain compared with a traditional RAID card without requiring any memory caching, eliminating the burden of managing a battery backup module while maintaining consistent performance.
Featuring a unique hardware and software architecture, SupremeRAID™ is the world’s first RAID card that can add more features like compression, encryption and thin provisioning via software update.
