Boston Igloo 2U-5T-Stor

In partnership with AccelStor, the software-defined all-flash array provider, Boston brings to the market a true high availability storage appliance, the Igloo Plus - Ice. A 2U self-contained rack-mount converged storage solution featuring up to 600,000 sustained IOPS performance, the Igloo Plus - Ice provides 5.8TB usable storage capacity and four high-speed 10GbE interfaces in a turnkey appliance.

Utilising AccelStor's award-winning FlexiRemap flash-management software technology, the compact, high-value 2U flash appliance saves rack space while providing outstanding I/O performance without costly proprietary hardware. The Igloo Plus's high-throughput I/O configuration using 10GbE interfaces the full performance of all-flash acceleration to be realised.

FlexiRemap technology is flash-oriented software developed by AccelStor. This software features an architectural re-design tailored for the fundamentals and internal workings of flash memory. Unlike RAID algorithms, FlexiRemap remaps the data whenever beneficial before passing it to the underlying flash memory, avoiding unnecessary overhead and extending the lifespan of SSDs. Such remapping is especially crucial for random-write access patterns, which comprise most enterprise-data traffic and are a major cause of storage-access performance bottlenecks. Plus, with data protection built in, FlexiRemap provides the most desirable benefits of RAID algorithms, without the drawbacks. FlexiRemap too brings advanced features such as thin provisioning and zero-page deduplication, making for simple capacity planning and management.

Leveraging AccelStor proprietary software and the RDMA (Remote Direct Memory Access) capability of the InfiniBand interlink, data synchronization between two storage nodes runs in real-time and results in better recovery time objective (RTO).

This makes the Igloo Plus - Ice a perfect fit for all mission-critical requirements, enterprise and industry applications; especially databases and online transaction processing (OLTP).
