August 23, 2017 – Fremont, CA – AccelStor, the software-defined all-flash array provider, announced its whole new scale-up and high-availability all-flash array, the NeoSapphire H710, offering a flexible choice from 27TB to 221TB usable capacity for mission-critical enterprise applications. The H710 is designed to support an expanding range of existing and emerging data center applications, including cloud computing, high-performance computing, artificial intelligence, virtualization, OLTP, and data mining. Besides its scalability and high availability, the H710 offers rich data protection features and consistently outperforms the market with over 600K IOPS for 4KB synchronous random write. The latest H710 all-flash array will be showcased during VMworld® 2017, at booth #1719, at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Convention Center, Las Vegas, USA, from August 28 to 31, 2017.

“Digital transformation is accelerating. Every industry is improving and streamlining through digital changes. Software-defined storage is replacing fixed-function infrastructure and AccelStor is just on the right track,” said David Kao, vice president, AccelStor. “We believe data should not be stored in the digital box. It should be reviewed by powerful analytics and artificial intelligence, discovering new insight and business opportunity. The powerful NeoSapphire H710 is a total solution for storage efficiency, scalability, reliability and flexibility. It could assist IT managers in meeting the challenge of keeping in-line with storage resources and data center demands as business needs change over time. The H710 combines high-velocity and seamless scale-up capabilities, presenting enterprises with the best-in-class storage solution to perform outstandingly in this highly competitive business landscape, with smart budget allocation.”

Scalability, Flexibility, and Agility without Disruption
The NeoSapphire H710 all-flash comes with a 4U form factor and is built on an elastic scale-up architecture, which offers extreme performance, scalability, density, and efficiency. With the power of FlexiRemap®, the H710 consolidates storage hardware into a single namespace with outstanding storage operational efficiency. Supporting online expansion, customers don’t need to suffer disruptions and management complexity. To scale up the system capacity, the H710 provides 2 expansion enclosure options, NeoSapphire J212 with a 2U 24 bay form factor and NeoSapphire J214 with a 4U 72bay form factor, which expands the overall system and a flexible capacity option is easily created ranging from 27TB to a maximum of 221TB usable.

Superb Storage Efficiency
FlexiDedupe™ is one of the key software features on the H710. It offers the benefit of block-level deduplication by eliminating duplicate copies of repeating data. Yet, it is far more efficient than the pure block-level deduplication standard in the market. The system starts by analyzing file attributes to identify the similarity of the file to others before it dedupes the data at the block level. This approach could intelligently locate the repeating data while providing deduplication efficiency without requiring a heavy system overhead. AccelStor’s H710 also offers inline deduplication, which is the most efficient type of deduplication. It can significantly reduce the raw capacity needed before being written to SSD. The H710 features the richest software functions and performance-boosting technology, including Free Clone, remote replication, thin provisioning, and SED support. 

High Availability with Data Protection Features
Powered by award-winning FlexiRemap® technology, the breakthrough scale-up and high-availability NeoSapphire H710 offer responsive speed and dependability without compromise. With 2 completed nodes as a system, H710 achieves 100% no single point of failure based on a rock-solid shared-nothing architecture and the symmetric active-active failover design. The high-availability NeoSapphire H710 provides a sustained 600K IOPS for 4KB random writes, with standard configuration options of 16-port 10GbE iSCSI connections or 8-port 16G Fibre channel and fully modular design for redundancy to protect data and avoid downtime. The H710 is also embedded with a battery-backed power module (BBP), ensuring data consistency for mission-critical data operations. In order to provide full support for data protection, the H710 also comes with Redirect-on-Write Snapshot, Snapshot Backup/Recovery, and Group Snapshot for database usage as standard. 

Management Plug-in for Even Easier Management
AccelStor provides a seamless storage solution for virtualization environments and is compatible with VMware vSphere®. The NeoSapphire H710 features a NeoSapphire management plug-in for VMware vSphere. Users of VMware vSphere can perform management tasks, including volume manipulation on NeoSapphire all-flash arrays, via the familiar user interface of VMware vSphere, and within the existing virtualization environment. This new management plug-in underlines AccelStor’s commitment to the broad community of virtualization users and evidences the ever-closer integration between AccelStor products and VMware solutions.
