WARP 41001 Series

WARP 41001 Series

Looking for competitive advantage, all industries are seeking improvement through data science and analytics, requiring storage systems on the backend that can keep up with these new demands in performance and scale. Using Lustre, HPC architects have built parallel file systems support the world’s fastest, most scalable storage systems in the world. Unfortunately, teams of PhD-holding administrators were required to implement and maintain such environments, a luxury that even large enterprise business often do not have.

The WARP Mechanics 41000 Matrix Series open storage appliances deliver the power, scale, and cost-model needed to support data science and analytics efforts to give businesses the edge they need to stay competitive.

WARP Mechanics has simplified Lustre deployment into a turnkey, scalable storage appliance, while retaining the flexibility of a customized solution. The WARP 41000 series of appliances combine storage servers and targets into a tightly-integrated package making it easy to deploy in a modular fashion. These appliances can be rolled out in a turnkey manner and then tailored as needed to meet customer-specific requirements.

StorageMatrix systems optimize for 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 IOPS performance and density. You can support metrics such as more database operations, VDI users, or analytics queries per footprint. Even though it is the most advanced pure flash system on the market, it tends to cost less than legacy OEMs charge for big-iron disk solutions.

HybridMatrix is the capacity/performance balanced system. It uses SSD and/or NV-RAM 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 and price.

  • High-Availability
  • 10/40 Gbps Ethernet, FDR/EDR IB, and Omni-Path interfaces
  • Native Linux ZFS with Lustre fully integrated
  • Self-healing, adaptive RAID with check-sums
  • Transactional copy-on-write
  • De-duplication, Thin Provisioning, & Compression
  • Unlimited File Size & Storage Capacity
  • Unlimited Snapshots & Clones
  • Sync or Async Replication
  • Web GUI, CLI, and full access to RHEL-style OS

WARP Mechanics has enhanced and simplified these elements to remove the deployment and management complexity: customers only need to configure site-specific parameters before going live. Yet all the power remains inside, so the appliances are tunable for customers’ applications.

In short, these products are denser, faster, more reliable, and run at a lower power-per-gigabyte metric than any competing system. Yet they come in at a lower cost compared to outdated storage from legacy OEMs.
