In partnership with AccelStor, the software-defined all-flash array provider, Boston brings to the market an all flash appliance, the Igloo Plus; a 1U rack-mount converged storage solution featuring up to 500,000 sustained IOPS performance. Delivering 5TB usable storage capacity and high-speed 10GbE, InfiniBand or 16Gbit/s Fibre Channel connectivity.

Utilising AccelStor’s FlexiRemap flash-management software technology, the compact, high-value 1U flash appliance saves rack space while providing outstanding I/O performance without costly proprietary hardware. The Igloo Plus’s high-throughput IO options such as 56Gbit/s InfiniBand allows the full performance of all-flash acceleration to be realised.

FlexiRemap technology is flash-oriented software developed by AccelStor. This software features an architectural re-design tailored for the fundamentals and internal workings of flash memory. Unlike RAID algorithms, FlexiRemap remaps the data whenever beneficial before passing it to the underlying flash memory, avoiding unnecessary overhead and extending the lifespan of SSDs. Such remapping is especially crucial for random-write access patterns, which comprise most enterprise-data traffic and are a major cause of storage-access performance bottlenecks. Plus, with data protection built in, FlexiRemap provides the most desirable benefits of RAID algorithms, without the drawbacks.
