RamSan 620

Description
The RamSan-620 is a rack-mounted SLC NAND Flash SSD that provides plenty of shareable, high performance storage for IT organizations that need to respond to the growing storage and performance needs of their users and applications. It is a greener, more efficient alternative to hard disk drive-based systems. The RamSan-620 has extremely low latency and delivers 250,000 IOPS of sustained performance, compared to the 300 IOPS that a high end mechanical disk drive can achieve. SLC Flash and innovative controller designs give the RamSan-620 enterprise reliability and data protection. With capacity options of 2 – 5TB in a 2U enclosure that uses only 325 Watts, the RamSan-620 can handle data growth very efficiently. It installs quickly and easily and is managed in the same way as our other RamSan systems, integrating seamlessly into almost any SAN environment using Fibre Channel or InfiniBand connectivity. The RamSan-620 is extremely versatile and especially well suited for performance-demanding applications such as data warehouses, online transaction processing, batch processing, and video editing.

Flash has enabled TMS to deliver high performance storage solutions to a much broader customer base. For over 30 years we have been at the forefront of storage performance and application acceleration for enterprises. With this 15th generation RamSan-620 we are combining expertise and technology to solve challenging problems of performance and efficiency in enterprises of all types and sizes. The RamSan-620 is a breakthrough of giant green storage that is affordable for mainstream IT shops across industries.

The RamSan-620 offers scalable performance and affordable high capacity that is space and power efficient as well. A single unit provides from 2 to 5TB of reliable Single Level Cell (SLC) Flash, making the RamSan-620 the highest capacity SLC Flash SSD on the market. It also leads the industry in performance with 250,000 sustained I/Os per second (IOPS) for random reads and random writes. Throughput is 3GB per second and latency ranges from 80 to 200 microseconds, 25 times less than high performance hard disk drives.

The RamSan-620 is a green IT choice, occupying only 2U of rack space and requiring only 325 Watts of power. In order to achieve similar performance, hard disk solutions would require as many as 500 drives, occupy 36 disk enclosures requiring nearly three full racks, consume over 7,000 Watts, and cost upwards of half a million dollars by the time the enclosures and controllers were included.

Each RamSan-620 unit can support 2 to 8 Fibre Channel (FC-140) or InfiniBand (IB-140) links. Installation and management are simple, with embedded management capabilities and clear displays. One or more RamSan-620s can easily be integrated into a mixed storage infrastructure and monitored and managed through a common management framework.

Automatic Error Checking
Storage data integrity is provided by the use of SLC Flash chips with two independent methods of ECC. Each Flash chip incorporates an ECC data field within the chip for initial checking.  Additionally, each set of Flash chips is organized as a board-level RAID; thereby eliminating any single chip failure from corrupting data.
