RamSan-440 Details

RamSan-440 highlights:

  • The World's Fastest Storage®
  • Over 600,000 random I/Os per second
  • 4500 MB/s random sustained external throughput
  • Full array of hardware redundancy to ensure availability
  • IBM Chipkill technology protects against memory errors up to and including loss of a memory chip.
  • RAIDed RAM boards protect against the loss of an entire memory board.
  • Exclusive Active Backup® software constantly backs up data without any performance degradation. Other SSDs only begin to backup data after power is lost.
  • Patented IO2 (Instant-On Input Output) software allows data to be accessed during a recovery. Customers no longer have to wait for a restore to be completed before accessing their data.

  • Internal redundancies
    • Power supplies and fans
    • Backup battery power (N+1)
    • RAIDed RAM Boards (RAID 3)
    • Flash Memory modules (RAID 3)
  • Hot-swappable components
    • Five Flash Memory modules (front access)
    • Power supplies
  • Active BackupTM
    • Active BackupTM mode (optional) backs up data constantly to internal redundant Flash Memory modules without impacting system performance making shutdown time significantly shorter.
  • IO2
    • IO2 allows instant access to data when power is restored to the unit and while data is synced from Flash backup.
  • Soft Error Scrubbing
    • When a single bit error occurs on a read, the RamSan will automatically re-write the data to memory thus scrubbing soft errors. Following the re-write the system re-reads to verify the data is corrected.
Backup Procedures
Supports two backup modes that are configurable per system or per LUN:
  • Data Sync mode synchronizes data to redundant internal Flash Memory modules before shutdown or with power loss
  • Active BackupTM mode (optional) - backs up data constantly to internal redundant Flash Memory modules without impacting system performance.
