Today StorONE announced that it has partnered with Mellanox Technologies to leverage each other’s technological approaches in order to create powerful, scalable and flexible storage solutions. These solutions achieve the enterprise-class functionality, high performance and high capacity results at the industry’s lowest total cost of ownership.

Modern software-defined storage solutions require high-performance, programmable and intelligent networks,” said Motti Beck, Senior Director Enterprise Market Development, at Mellanox. “Combining StorONE’s TRU STORAGE software with Mellanox Ethernet fabric storage solutions improves the simplicity, cost and efficiency of enterprise storage systems, supports enterprises’ mission critical storage features at wire speed and ensures the best end-user experience available.”

StorONE’s next-generation software-defined storage, TRU STORAGE (Total Resource Utilization), achieves maximum performance with minimal hardware because of a transformational breakthrough in storage software efficiency. Mellanox high-performance, end-to-end smart interconnect solutions provide the highest performance, efficiency and value for these increasingly popular storage solutions. With StorONE TRU STORAGE software and Mellanox interconnect solutions, customers can now run at wire speeds of 10, 25, 40, 50, and 100Gb/s speeds, while reducing the hardware needed to achieve it to less than $0.01 per GB. Using StorONE’s TRU STORAGE software technology with a single 40Gb Mellanox port and just 6 SSDs, users can achieve 500,000 IOPS.

StorONE TRU STORAGE is a new class of SDS that completely redefines expectations in performance, results, functionality, convenience and cost. With StorONE’s enterprise-class TRU STORAGE software, a customer’s hardware investment will match the rated IOPS, throughput and capacity of the drive regardless of whether it is SSD, NVMe or HDD. More than that, StorONE’s TRU STORAGE software includes enterprise storage features such as unlimited, near zero overhead, instantaneous snapshots; flexible, high-performance, low-overhead data protection; elaborate data retention; support for any workload mix (block, file and object) on shared drives; and support for any drive types in the same server. There is no need to integrate multiple storage solutions when users can get these features in a single software-defined storage solution that runs at wire speed.

Adding more storage hardware to simply satisfy performance and capacity requirements adds needless cost, complexity and overhead,” said Gal Naor, StorONE co-founder and CEO. “TRU STORAGE completely changes this dynamic, with a solution that allows users to run more applications with faster response times, less complexity and better data protection. Working with a company like Mellanox ensures that we are best positioned to change the enterprise storage game.”
