  1. 1.   tachIOn C     Virident  tachIOn™  Drive     SmartScaling™  Storage  in  Datacenter:    Best-­‐of-­‐breed  performance,  enterprise-­‐grade  reliability,  and  large   capacity  in  a  compact,  low  profile  form  factor     Virident’s  tachIOn  drive  is  a  revolutionary  solid-­‐state  storage  product  that   utilizes  the  industry-­‐standard  PCI  Express  interface  and  innovative  hardware-­‐ software  architecture  for  high  performance  and  sustained  random  IOPS.     tachIOn  delivers  best-­‐in-­‐class  performance  and  enterprise  reliability,  low  power   together  with  plug-­‐and-­‐play  ease-­‐of-­‐use  for  performance  starved,  data-­‐ intensive  workloads  such  as  databases,  business  analytics,  simulation,   visualization  and  high-­‐performance  computing.     Sustained  Performance:  tachIOn,  part  of  Virident's  GreenCloud  storage   product  line,  delivers  sustained  and  predictable  performance  at  low  latencies   over  the  lifetime  of  the  product  and  at  the  highest  usable  capacities.    An   example  of  this  high  performance  is  200,000  4KB  read/write  IOPS  in  75:25   read/write  workloads.    In  addition,  tachIOn  offers  unparalleled  performance   supporting  large  IO  queue  depths  allowing  high-­‐performance  applications  to   tachIOn  Features:   effectively  exploit  multicore  CPUs  to  the  fullest.    tachIOn’s  software  eliminates   • Sustained,  predictable   performance  issues  typically  seen  in  concurrent  read  while  write  scenarios,   random  IOPS  –  Best  in  the   leading  to  consistent  and  predictable  performance  at  the  application  level,   Industry;  100x  faster  than   across  real-­‐world  workloads.   Enterprise  HDDs   Enterprise-­‐grade  Reliability  and  Lifetimes:  Combined  with  Virident's  unique     • Enterprise-­‐grade  reliability  –   management  software  layer,  tachIOn  is  a  true  enterprise-­‐class  solution   advanced  ECC;  dynamic,   delivering  high-­‐performance  random  IOPs  under  varying  loads  (and  read/write   global  wear  leveling   mixes),  coupled  with  enterprise-­‐grade  reliability  and  endurance.    The     • Field  serviceability  –   management  software  employs  global  and  dynamic  wear  leveling,  optimizing   replaceable  Flash  Modules   Flash  memory  usage  across  the  entire  card  and  delivering  the  best  lifetimes  in     the  industry  –  24  years,  at  5TB  writes  per  day  –even  under  aggressive   • Industry  leading  lifetimes  –  24   workloads.    It  applies  advanced  error  correction  to  significantly  enhance   years  at  5TB  writes/day;   reliability  of  the  underlying  hardware,  minimizing  errors  uncorrectable  bit  errors   extend  investment  with   to  less  than  one  in  10-­‐17  bits.    Furthermore,  tachIOn  does  all  the  above  while   replaceable  modules   offering  applications  the  highest  usable  capacity  per  drive.     • HDD-­‐like  capacities  –  200GB  –   Field  Serviceability:  tachIOn’s  design  uses  Flash  modules,  which  enhance  ROI   400GB;  upgrade  option   with  the  ability  to  replace  modules  onsite  in  the  customer’s  environment.    In     • Custom  design-­‐in   addition  to  further  prolonging  lifetime  of  a  drive,  it  offers  the  unique  ability  for   opportunities  for  OEMs   users  to  upgrade  the  storage  capability  without  the  need  to  replace  the  entire   card.  Together  with  its  enhanced  reliability  and  lifetime  capabilities,  tachIOn   Applications:   raises  the  bar  for  enterprise  reliability,  availability  and  serviceability  (RAS).   • High  Performance  Computing   Easy  to  Deploy:  tachIOn  has  been  designed  with  the  needs  of  the  datacenter  in   • Data  analytics   mind.    The  Virident  tachIOn  Drive  is  available  in  capacities  from  200GB  up  to   • Web  2.0   400GB  storage  per  low-­‐profile  PCIe  card.    The  drive  can  be  installed  and  ready  to   • Transaction  processing   use  in  industry  standard  x86-­‐based  servers  (Intel  and  AMD)  in  a  matter  of     minutes.
