Pavilion Announces Support for S3 Object Storage on Pavilion Hyperparallel Flash Array

May 27, 2020

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 27, 2020 – Pavilion Data Systems announced support for S3 object storage on the Pavilion Hyperparallel Flash Array (HFA). The addition of S3, a high performance object interface, extends the Pavilion HFA storage capabilities to become the first HFA with native support for block, file, and object storage.

Until now, organizations that needed to take advantage of S3 object storage had to choose between the capacity of public cloud providers with their inherent latencies and greater IOPs expense, or the limited scalability or performance of local object storage solutions. With the release of native S3 support, Pavilion HFA customers are taking advantage of high performance local object storage, along with the ability to easily tier to the public cloud for long term archive.

Delivering high performance is critical to use cases such as Splunk, Greenplum, Hadoop and others, which are embracing S3 object storage as the standard for next generation workloads. Pavilion’s fast Object Storage demonstrates an 80 GB/sec read and 35 GB/sec write throughput. The performance of the Pavilion HFA solves the challenges customers are facing regarding the lack of affordable, performant object storage options, which leaves organizations to continue using block or file protocols, limiting the value they can get from their applications.

With up to 20 controllers per 4U array, the Pavilion HFA is uniquely capable of delivering maximum performance to all block, file, and object workloads simultaneously. Customers also enjoy the flexibility to linearly and independently scale capacity or performance as needed.

“As organizations and applications increasingly adopt object storage as the platform of the future, they need the same high performance they have come to expect from their existing block and file based solutions,” said Gurpreet Singh, Pavilion CEO. “With the addition of native fast object support to the Pavilion HFA, customers can, for the first time, enjoy both industry leading high performance and ultra-low latency from one platform in a small footprint.”

“Adding object storage to the Pavilion HFA was a natural extension of our commitment to technology innovation for our customers,” said Sundar Kanthadai, Pavilion Founder and VP of Engineering. “As scale out applications move to a native S3 interface, Pavilion is proud to be the first HFA vendor to deliver Block, File, and Object storage capabilities on a single platform providing ease of use as well as performance and scalability for today, tomorrow, and beyond.”

The addition of S3 to the existing storage capabilities of the Pavilion HFA, further extends the leadership role of Pavilion in the third wave of storage, in which Pavilion arrays break free from the legacy architecture of dual controller arrays to take advantage of many controllers. This architecture is known as hyperparallel flash arrays (HFA), and the Pavilion HFA leverages NVMe-oF and the parallelism of flash to deliver an order of magnitude better performance and lower latency than legacy dual controller All Flash Arrays (AFAs).

This first release of native S3 support for Fast Objectstore on the Pavilion HFA has been driven by strong market demand, with additional enhancements planned over the year.
