NextIO vSTOR Solid State Drive appliance
SSG-NOW Subscription ContentVirtualization of input-output makes it possible to share the latest generation of PCIe-based solid state drives (SSDs) between servers via dynamic reallocation of the I/O resources. NextIO has developed a bus-switching technology that provides a new level of flexibility for I/O device reconfiguration within a rack or adjacent racks. The advent of PCIe-based solid state drives from several manufacturers gives NextIO the ability to take advantage of the competition in this area and provides a unique value proposition for sharing these relatively expensive devices (on a price per GB) across a server pool. The result is an extremely high performing storage array at a price-performance level that is only going to improve over time as new PCIe products enter the market and take advantage of new SSD advances.
