With DSSD, we’re able to support applications and analytics at never-before-seen speeds; this is what enabled us to make the leap to this new generation of flash storage, and we’re not looking back.”

Brian Dougherty, Chief Technical Architect, CMA

We have been testing the DSSD D5 technology for several months with multiple workloads: file systems, NOSQL DBs, and the DSSD direct API. The unique shared high bandwidth PCI connectivity, the low latency, and the very high read bandwidth achieved are impressive in such a small footprint.”

Gary Grider, High Performance Computing Division Leader, Los Alamos National Laboratory

DSSD D5 provides a performance capability that exceeds our expectations. We anticipate DSSD D5 will provide at least a 10x performance improvement over our existing analytic platforms.”
