With listels all the rage these days, I thought it would be interesting to summarize the key points from 2019’s previous blogs and cover a few more in this BuzzFeed friendly format. While it’s not exactly my style to boil deep technical insight into a top 8 listel, it is good to be concise. Customers are voting with their pocketbooks. Since the beginning of 2019, Pavilion Data has shipped dozens of systems to customers around the globe and closed multiple 7-figure deals. Most deals several things in common. First, a never-ending thirst for speed that only NVMe can quench.
Full uncompressed editing with multiple collaborators requires massive storage bandwidth and low-latency. Traditionally, this is achieved by purchasing a large number of storage arrays and disks (HDDs or SSDs). The result is excess capacity stranded for a single media asset. This can be as much as four times the amount of actual storage required. Pavilion Data can deliver 120GB/sec of throughput, enabling up to 10 seats with 6 streams of 60fps uncompressed 4K against an exact size of a media asset. Most vendors are now promoting “All-NVMe” as the answer for uncompressed 4K and 8K editing and delivery. But
According to scientists at MIT, the blink of an eye can be less than 100 microseconds. With the latest release of Pavilion Data’s NVMe-oF Storage Platform, you could blink twice in the time it takes for a 128K block of data to write from a host, across an NVMe-over-Fabrics network, through our array and to a RAID-6 volume of OPENCHOICENVMe SSDs. This extreme low-latency, combined with write bandwidth of 90GB/sec. redefines composable disaggregated storage and brings into question why anyone would use Direct-Attached Storage for modern scale-out applications, ever again. Of course, an NVMe SSD inside a server specs
Dell Technologies World 2019 will be held at the Venetian in Las Vegas from April 29 to May 2. With just a week away, Pavilion Data is ramping up for a great event. I have the honor of speaking on April 30th at 1:40PM in the World Chat Theatre B. The topic is Scaling Pivotal Cloud Foundry and the Greenplum Database. Our experience with these platforms is rich, and the insights to be shared will be pivotal (pun intended). As a bronze sponsor, we have a fantastic booth highlighting the industry’s most capable NVMe-oF shared storage platform in
