THE HYBRID FLASH STORAGE APPLIANCE WITH APPLICATION-ACCELERATION TO MAXIMIZE BIG DATA INSIGHTS
The SFA7700X is a hybrid flash storage appliance, purpose-built for Big Data requirements that uniquely enables organizations to resolve today’s key storage challenges. It is designed to allow you to start small and extract maximum value from your Big Data. At the core, is the hyper-optimized SFA Operating System, running in two hybrid controllers that leverage Storage Fusion Xcelerator™ (SFX) technology to extract the maximum performance and value from hybrid (spinning disk & flash) media. SFX integrates application-centric intelligence with the power of flash media to marry the performance of flash with the economy of hard disk drives. This drastically lowers the TCO for organizations deploying a mix of flash and rotating media while simultaneously accelerating application performance. Furthermore, the SFA7700X family instantly cloud enables your storage for global collaboration and cost-effective archive with its file system hooks that migrate data seamlessly to the cloud.
