WARP 38002 Series

WARP 38002 Series

The WARP Mechanics 38002 Matrix Series open storage appliances deliver the power, scale, and cost-model needed to support modern businesses. WARP Mechanics has adopted Open Storage as more than a marketing term; it’s a philosophy that uses best-of-breed industry-leading hardware and open source software to create an architecture that doesn’t sacrifice performance, reliability, or manageability.

Built with the latest Intel Xeon processor Scalable family the WARP 38002 is designed for performance with high scalability and resiliency with no I/O compromise, and supports a wide range of existing and emerging workloads for ultimate performance and scalability.

The series is available in a variety of fully integrated configurations using high-capacity HDD, performance intensive SSD, and maximum write IO NVMe modules. The WARPware unified storage OS controls which type of media is used for any given piece of data, ensuring maximum performance and reliability.

This provides industry-leading performance, scalability, and reliability, all at a fraction of the cost of competing arrays. Primarily based on the WDS-9460 platform, with some systems using the WDS-9224, three versions have been developed to optimize solutions for different customer vertical and horizontal markets:

StorageMatrix systems optimize for capacity vs. high capacity density. You can store more data in a smaller floor-tile footprint for a reasonable price.

MemoryMatrix systems have a purpose-built, pure memory architecture. This gives you the best IOPS performance and density. You can support metrics such as more database operations, VDI users, or analytics queries, per footprint and dollar spent.

HybridMatrix is the capacity/performance balanced system. It uses SSD and/or NVMe modules to create a multi-TB scale cache. If you have a subset of data which is highly active, vs. a larger, less active set, as many verticals do, then the hybrid solution can provide pure SSD performance with close to pure disk density without breaking the bank.

All three versions have the following characteristics:

  • Enterprise reliability, availability, and serviceability
  • Hot-pluggable drives, I/O controllers, and power / cooling FRUs
  • Single or dual WARPraid or WARPnas controllers
  • Multiple protocol options: SMB, NFS, iSCSI, FTP
  • Same hardware and OS supports advanced WARPhpc, and WARPobject filesystems
  • Network interface options such as 10/40GbE, 40/56Gb FDR, and 100Gb EDR IB or Omni-Path ports
