One Stop Systems Licenses ION Flash Storage Accelerator Software to Continue Development

November 15, 2017

DENVER, Nov. 15, 2017 — One Stop Systems (OSS), a leading provider of high performance all-flash arrays, announced a license agreement reached earlier this year with Western Digital for Western Digital’s ION Flash Storage Accelerator Software. The agreement allows OSS to develop and market the ION software, providing enhancements to a proven flash file system. ION software has provided a stable platform for many military, finance and other pure high speed flash storage applications. ION has a pedigree of ultra-high performance storage for high definition video content delivery, social media platforms, high-speed data recorders, financial transactions, government training systems and many more applications.

The ION software defines flexibility by supporting a variety of modern storage interfaces such as 100Gb Ethernet, 32Gb Fibre Channel and 100Gb InfiniBand. The interfaces support popular protocols such as iSCSI, SRP and FC. ION also features active-standby high availability (HA) with synchronous replication. Multiple data protection options are provided through HA and the support of RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5 or RAID 10. When the application calls for pure speed, the ION software supports LUN masking and JBOD mode for scenarios where high IOPS trumps data protection. The ION software also allows for server consolidation by removing storage bottlenecks in virtualized environments. This allows more virtual machines to be provisioned in a virtualized environment per storage system thereby reducing total cost of ownership verses traditional storage or less efficient, open source flash file systems.

“One Stop Systems has built a team of experienced software developers to enhance the ION Software,” said Steve Cooper, CEO of OSS. “The ION software has proven incredibly powerful and works in conjunction with the OSS Data Storage Unit hardware to provide a new level of performance and features for applications such as real-time HPC, analytics, big data and high speed data recording. The software team will extend OSS capabilities, increasing the functionality and value of our hardware by pairing it with proven leading-edge software to serve the demands of our customers.”

“Licensing the ION software to a long-time partner such as One Stop Systems benefits all existing and future ION customers,” said Joan Wrabetz, Vice President of Marketing, Data Center Systems, Western Digital Corporation. “The ION Software contains a wide variety of features that provide performance improvements and latency reduction to today’s demanding ’Fast Data’ applications. Western Digital customers would benefit from the ongoing enhancements enabled by this agreement for proven flash storage accelerator software such as ION.”

HPC Serves as a ‘Rosetta Stone’ for the Information Age

July 12, 2018

In an age defined and transformed by its data, several large-scale scientific instruments around the globe might be viewed as a ‘mother lode’ of precious data. With names seemingly created for a ‘techno-speak’ glossary, these interferometers, cyclotrons, sequencers, solenoids, satellite altimeters, and cryo-electron microscopes are churning out data in previously unthinkable and seemingly incomprehensible quantities -- billions, trillions and quadrillions of bits and bytes of electro-magnetic code.
