Supercomputing '14, New Orleans, LA - November 17, 2014 – One Stop Systems, Inc. (OSS), the leader in PCI Express® (PCIe®) expansion technology, introduces the latest in fast networked storage with its Flash Storage SAN (FSA-SAN) for HPC applications. OSS' new FSA-SAN provides 200TB of shared Flash RAIDed memory with a choice of the fastest SAN connectivity options including 16GbFibre Channel, 56Gb Infiniband and 40Gb iSCSI. The included ION Accelerator software from SanDisk Fusion IO helps enterprises gain insight from information faster by improving application performance and shortening application response times, thus increasing competitive advantage. A High Availability (HA) option supports up to a petabyte of fast Flash storage. The new FSA-SAN supports FDR IB, 40Gb Ethernet and 12Gb FC.

Comprised of a unique combination of a Haswell-based engine and 200TB Flash arrays, the FSA-SAN can be increased to a petabyte of storage with additional Flash arrays. Each 200TB array delivers 16 million IOPS, making it the ideal platform for high-speed data recording and processing with lightning fast data response time, high-availability and flexibility in the cloud. A local IPMI module optimizes each array's parameters to the environment while allowing the power user to set features through SNMP or the built-in user interface based on the overall policy of the installation. Powered by the newest Intel E5-2600 v3 "Haswell" processors, the engine features up to eleven PCIe 3.0 half-height, full-length expansion slots and has a variety of front panel storage options.

"One Stop Systems' expertise in PCI Express expansion and custom systems reaches new heights by bringing together the latest in Intel-based processing and state-of-the-art Flash storage to provide a storage area network (SAN) appliance that can be expanded to a petabyte of fast network storage," said Steve Cooper, OSS CEO. "We have partnered with the leading providers of server boards, silicon, and PCIe Flash boards to provide this unique product. Powered by Haswell processors on an eleven-slot server board, this engine is especially built to support PCIe expansion. The server is cabled to each 200TB Flash storage array with a 128Gb/s connection. The server/Flash array combination only requires 5U of rack space, saving two racks of space by other conventional means. This makes the FSA-SAN the best choice for networked storage."

The FSA-SAN with 200TB of Flash storage is available with OEM volumes. Call the factory and speak with one of our sales engineers for pricing and lead time.
