Business Focus:
Violin Memory (www.vmem.com) is pioneering the future of flash memory storage in the enterprise data center. Violin Memory Arrays deliver storage at the speed of memory, accelerating business critical applications and enabling fully virtualized and optimized IT infrastructures. Designed for sustained performance with high reliability, Violin Memory arrays scale to hundreds of terabytes and millions of IOPS with low, spike-free latency. Violin Memory is the ultimate solution for the company who is looking to accelerate their business critical applications and virtualize their Data Center storage with an Enterprise Storage Array that delivers unprecedented sustainability and spike-free latency at price points challenging HDD performance storage. Violin Memory provides the industry(tm)s fastest and most scalable memory appliances. Built from the ground up to provide scalable high performance memory infrastructure for large data set applications, Violin Memory(tm)s appliances lower the total cost of memory (TCM), provide an 80% saving in space and power, and seamlessly integrate into you Storage Area Network (SAN) infrastructure using Fibre Channel (FC), iSCSI, or Infiniband (IB). Violin Memory's appliances bring a new level of reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) by providing unmatched scalability, the industry(tm)s fastest I/O performance, memory fault tolerance, ultra-green power efficiency, and compelling price performance.Violin Memory has rewritten the rules for how solid-state memory, can be deployed into the enterprise. Unlike solid state disk (SSD), Violin Memory(tm)s technology innovation stems from a system level view to re-architect a reliable, robust, and efficient memory system. Most solid-state companies squeeze solid state memory into either existing form factors such as hard drives or existing architectures such as the traditional linear bus found in most computer systems. Thus, along two dimensions, both form factor and level of integration, Violin has innovated with patented solutions. Many applications in the data center are constrained by their ability to access data stored on mechanical disk drives. With fast multi-core processors and high speed networks, the common bottleneck is the latency and throughput limitations of disk-based storage. Even the fastest drives available deliver less than 250 IOPS with latency greater than 5 milliseconds. System administrators and IT architects often find themselves over-provisioning disk drives and endlessly tuning to squeeze out incremental performance gains. Violin Memory is engaged in planning and designing computer systems that integrate Violin Memory computer hardware and software into customer environments. Violin Memory can also install the system and train and support users of the system.

Relief has arrived in the form of flash Memory Arrays.
Ranging in capacities 64TB raw noncompressed  MLC  16TB raw noncompressed SLC these arrays can deliver 750,000 IOPS with latency near 0.1 milliseconds (100 microseconds) boosting application performance.
A single 64TB raw noncompressed  Windows Flash MLC array can deliver 750,000 IOPS with latency near 0.1 milliseconds (100 microseconds) boosting all windows based application performance and runs SMB3 natively.

The Violin Maestro can make your existing fibre channel legacy SAN storage infrastructure faster than flash with the Violin Maestro 2510. Powered by the Maestro software suite and hardware optimized, the Violin Maestro 2510 delivers enterprise data management services to transform your performance-challenged, fibre channel SAN-based IT environment into a high performing all-flash data center with no disruption to your applications.

Patented hardware-accelerated algorithms built into the Violin Maestro 2510, combined with the expansive functionality of the Violin Maestro data services software suite, enable a risk-free and disruption-free transformation to a highly efficient, flash-based data center as well as Realtime Flash Tiering.

Enterprise Data Services Software Delivers Business in a Flash

The Concerto 7000 All Flash Array with Enterprise Data Services Software brings new levels of business continuity, safety, scale and efficiency to provide transformative performance and economics. This comprehensive solution consists of high performance storage, highly available controllers and Enterprise Data Services Software to solve data center and cloud challenges.

    Flexible and powerful business continuity with asynchronous and synchronous replication
    Data efficiency technologies such as thin provisioning and snapshots
    Data protection features including clones, mirroring and encryption
    Scalability with up to four storage shelves with hundreds of terabytes of data
    Transformative performance for mixed and multiple workloads

This benefits a wide range of data intensive applications including databases, big data, cloud, metadata, data warehousing, server virtualization, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), analytics, messaging, content management, large scale file systems such as GPFS, and many high performance computing (HPC) applications.

Violin Memory is currently providing these capabilities through the Federal marketplace to include customers throughout the IC, DOD, and civilian agencies.
