OCF provides block storage solutions ranging from cost effective bulk storage, virtualised storage systems for enterprise applications through to high performance, low latency storage for HPC requirements
All data is storage as a block somewhere, but not all data is equal. You may require resilient high IOPS NVMe to support mission critical transactional workloads, hybrid virtualised storage to support diverse virtual estates, low-cost predictable spinning disk for capacity based storage, or a combination of everything. OCF understands diverse workloads and can work with you to ensure needs are met and users kept happy.
If cost affective, or high density storage density is your primary concern then NL-SAS based solutions, with up to 18TB of capacity per drive, are still hard to beat! For HPC workloads, a large quantity of spinning disks is an effective way of delivering a large amount of capacity and meeting throughput requirements simultaneously.
OCF supplies NL-SAS HDD based solutions from partners DDN, Dell, Fujitsu, Huawei, IBM, Lenovo and Netapp.
Flash, NVMe and SSDs all offer high IOPS and throughput per TB of usable storage capacity storage. Whilst the cost of performance (£/IOP) has long been lower on flash based technologies, the cost of capacity (£/TB) is quickly catching with traditional HDD based technologies too, especially when performant compression and/or de-duplication are effective on your data.
