SoftIron® is the world leader in task-specific appliances for scale-out, data center solutions, and is a proud member of the iRODS Consortium.
HyperDrive is SoftIron's flagship storage solution, a high-performing, ultra-efficient appliance that is purpose-built to optimize Ceph.
Ceph is the leading open-source, software-defined storage platform, delivering unified storage for block, file and object.
Ceph’s use in HPC environments enables scalability, high performance, and timely access to data. It can help support work on large databases such as those found in genomics research or to support collaborative research across geographies.
Organizations select Ceph because of its accessibility, openness (so no vendor lock-in), flexibility, and rich features. In particular, Ceph can do all three types of commonly found storage types (object, block, and file) — flexibility that separates it from most SDS solutions. Its inherent scale-out support allows an organization to build large systems as cost and demand require gradually. Plus, it supports enterprise-grade features such as erasure coding, thin provisioning, cloning, load-balancing, automated tiering between flash and hard drives, and simplified maintenance and debugging.
