Disk Array Performance
FlashDisk RAID disk arrays have been speeding up disk intensive applications for over 20 years. FlashDisk works equally well in random access environments including VMware, database and transaction-oriented applications as well as sequential access environments including backup, copying, video streaming, web serving.
Now in its 10th generation, FlashDisk RAID disk arrays deliver up to 160,000 I/O operations per second – perfect for all disk intensive applications. Often, after laboriously tuning an Oracle database or VMware application for days, week or months, just installing the application on FlashDisk RAID disk array will cause the applications to immediately run 2 to 10 times faster.
Winchester Systems has specialized in providing the highest performance disk arrays since 1988. Performance has improved exponentially at an incredible 45% per year annual compounded growth rate for 22 straight years - a 3,200 times increase in performance.
FlashDisk is perfect for VMware and high performance databases. FlashDisk performance easily supports dozens of virtual servers with a reliable storage pool.
How It Works
FlashDisk high performance RAID disk arrays are architected start to finish for high performance. All FlashDisk RAID disk arrays are full 64-bit architecture end-to-end. No compromises. Up to 4 GB high-speed data cache per controller speeds data access for both reads and writes.
For added speed, the disk arrays are designed with up to 8 channels that can be used for disk or host access. The result is massively parallel data access via full 64-bit data paths - yielding unsurpassed performance. All internal chips including RAID parity ASICS are designed for speed. Unlike very popular competitors, FlashDisk has not tossed out the hardware parity chips to save a few dollars at the customer's expense. Finally, FlashDisk RAID arrays are scalable to extremely high I/O demands since they are inexpensive enough to use as many as needed for the specific demands of the environment.
