DDN Data Storage

Transforming the way customers are storing, managing and using their data

Powerful data management solutions

DDN is a global leader in scale data storage and for over two decades they have helped customers meet their own expectations and needs by managing data better, faster and safer. OCF has a long history of working with DDN in organisations and universities, primarily due to great density offerings on a single rack basis; unrivalled performance (read/write speeds of up to 1TB+ and millions of cache IOPS per system); accelerated workloads and architects with a deep-level of technical knowledge.



This SFA18KX is a single appliance that provides up to 3.2 million IOPS from its 4U enclosure. The SFA18KX storage offering is the fastest storage solution in the industry today, delivering the highest density available with the ability to drive an unmatched number of flash (both NVMe and SAS) devices along with spinning drives.

Built using Intel Xeon Scalable processors, SFA18KX building blocks begin in the lower terabytes region, scaling to over 25 petabytes. Selecting the building block size that best suits your use case, the SFA18KX performance density enables a much smaller solution footprint than other competitors in the same market, meaning a lower controller-to-drive ratio, along with lower power and cooling figures.




The DDN SFA7990X is the essential platform for consolidating storage requirements. Designed in the flash era to fully exploit the impressive performance of SSDs, the SFA7990X provides low-latency performance and industry-leading innovation for block and file storage at any scale.

DDN’s SFA7990X Hybrid Flash Storage Platform is designed to grow with the needs of your accelerating business use cases and ultimately provide flexibility without compromise. The SFA7990X uses Intel Xeon Scalable processors and addresses the most intensive Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning Application demands right through to support long-term retention of large amounts of infrequently used data.


DDN Storage Fusion Architecture (SFA) appliances have been built purposely to deliver scalable flash performance and capacity to meet ever changing and growing business demands. The SFA NVMe platforms deliver 100% NVMe storage with multiple high-speed connectivity choices.  At up to 48GB/s, the low density 2U platforms are the fastest storage solutions in the industry and can deliver up to 24 x NVMe SSDs in the 2U form factor.

The platforms are built using Intel Xeon Scalable processors, making the SFA NVMe appliances ideal for data centres with a limited amount of space and ones that require solid high-performance flash in a scale-out architecture. You can start with a single box and scale out endlessly to meet your file system or block needs.

Common use cases include:

  • AI - Artificial Intelligence
  • Analytics
  • Deep Learning
  • Content Distribution
  • High IOPS Telemetry
