The team at Avere have what looks like an impressive storage solution on their hands, and it’s great to see them taking the extra steps to make it the best it can be. Very recently they recorded a performance benchmark that could put the competition to shame - 1.56 Million IOPS with less than three standard equipment racks. It was 2.5 to be exact.
This was made possible when they teamed up with Arista Networks who provided the network switch, 7000-model. The results proved that by combining these two powerful storage initiatives you can achieve maximum density, reduce your footprint by consuming less power, create an easier to manage storage environment for the systems admin and is overall quite cost effective.
If, like us, you are impressed by these results, and want to find more information on this and the FXT appliance for NAS optimisation you should take a look at this white paper from Avere. And of course if you like what you read and you would like to recreate something similar for your own storage requirements, please get in touch with us.
