Pavilion Data Systems Launches HyperOS 3.0

November 18, 2020

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 18, 2020 — Pavilion Data Systems, a leader in storage for a data centric world, today announced the release of Pavilion HyperOS 3.0, which powers the most performant, dense, scalable, and flexible storage platform in the universe. With the addition of NFS and S3 support across multiple Pavilion Hyperparallel Flash Array systems under a single, global namespace, the multi-protocol Pavilion HyperOS 3.0 delivers unprecedented organizational choice and control to easily deploy high performance, low latency storage with unlimited scale across block, file, and object workloads without compromises.

Customers can now achieve business outcomes that were previously not possible across AI/ML, Analytics, HPC, and the Edge by accelerating all workloads. This enables them to take advantage of unprecedented scale and class-leading density to achieve game changing business and organizational outcomes previously thought unattainable.

The Pavilion HyperOS 3.0 includes the Pavilion HyperParallel File System a multi-chassis clustered, distributed file system that brings even greater levels of performance, scalability, and functionality to the Pavilion HyperParallel Flash Array (HFA), resulting in the most performant, dense, flexible, scalable, and affordable flash storage platform in the universe.

“We live in a world where all applications are now mission critical, and the sheer volume and velocity of data required to meet objectives is massive,” said Gurpreet Singh, CEO Pavilion Data Systems. “A data centric world, leverages large data sets to extract actionable intelligence and insights in real time, which are critical for the business. With our announcement today, customers are able to do just that – process massive amounts of unstructured file and object data, without limits and at unprecedented speeds to extract the most value out of their critical assets.”

“The Pavilion platform delivers the performance to meet the needs of the next generation of high performance workflows across multiple workloads,” said Billy Russell, Vice President and CTO at Alliance Integrated Technology. “The raw performance, density, multi tenancy and protocol support that Pavilion delivers is in a class we have not seen in any other flash storage platforms.”

The parallel architecture of the Pavilion HyperParallel Flash Array already delivered best in class performance for block, file, and object workloads in a single namespace. The Pavilion HyperParallel File System expands upon that industry leading performance to deliver a high performance NFS and S3 object store that provides unrivaled levels of flexibility in performance, affordability, ecosystem integration, data services, and control across a global namespace.

Uniquely capable of providing independent, linear scalability of both capacity and performance, the Pavilion HyperParallel File System now provides global namespace support for both NFS and S3 across multiple Pavilion HyperParallel Flash Array systems, enabling unlimited, linear scale.

The Pavilion HyperParallel Flash Array already delivered industry leading performance with unmatched read and write performances. Now with Pavilion HyperOS 3.0, the Pavilion HyperParallel Platform delivers even stronger performance to drive customer results.

Pavilion empowers customers with up to 4x the read performance and up to 8x the write performance for NFS and S3 data versus the incumbent and new players in this space.

“The Pavilion HyperOS enables us to create massive, Rackscale deployments,” said Kevin Tubbs, Senior Vice President Strategic Solutions Group, Penguin Computing.

The global namespace capability of the Pavilion HyperParallel File System allows for maximum flexibility across an unlimited number of Pavilion HyperParallel Flash Array units. Easily configurable within the Pavilion HyperOS interface, customers can configure any number of controllers and/or HFA systems, and any number of ports across any combination of supported protocols, including iSCSI, NVMe-oF/TCP, NVMe-oF/RoCE, NFS, S3, or to an external file system such as IBM Spectrum Scale, Lustre, or BeeGFS. With up to 20 controllers and 40 100Gb Ethernet or InfiniBand ports per Pavilion HFA, and with the ability to scale across an unlimited number of HFAs, users now have maximum flexibility and choice with the storage system that offers the highest combination of performance and throughput with ultra-low latency, and high density in the industry.

Pavilion HyperParallel File System adds data services for NFS, including tiering, replication, security, snapshots, clones, encryption, and compression. S3 data services include compression, replication, file access controls, identity management, multi-cloud tiering, and multi-ecosystem integration.

“Pavilion has been able to achieve industry leading performance for simultaneous block, file, and object workloads, at scale, while using standards based hardware in an incredibly compact form factor. This is truly impressive,” said Marc Staimer, President, Dragon Slayer Consulting, “What’s even more amazing, it is the first in the industry.”

“Disaggregated, high performance NFS and S3 storage, leveraging NVMe-oF and RDMA for low latency, will be critical to enterprises as they work to solve big data challenges as well as edge computing needs with GPU-based systems,” said Philippe Nicolas, Analyst, Coldago Research. “With the ability to deliver industry leading performance, density, and unlimited, linear scalability across systems, Pavilion’s HyperParallel Data Platform resets expectations in the storage category.”

“Pavilion Data’s unique hyperparallel architecture can simultaneously support native block, file and object protocols with eye-popping performance density,” said Eric Burgener, research vice president, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group, IDC. “Able to corral up to 20 CPUs and 72 storage devices in a 4U form factor, the system efficiently delivers extremely high performance and low latency, predictably at scale, providing a highly efficient end-to-end NVMe-based platform suitable for high performance cloud native as well as traditional workloads that significantly outperforms the competition, with in many cases a 50% to 75% smaller footprint.”

Learn more about the Pavilion HyperOS 3.0 launch by attending the launch webinar on Thursday November 19, 2020 at 10:00am Pacific Standard Time. Registrants can also receive an on-demand version of the webinar post the event.
