Sometimes all that’s needed to advance technology is being able to see past where it is to where it can be. Our vision has led us to innovate and develop the Vast Technology SSFAD. We have developed a digital storage drive with capacities up to 128 TB in a 3.5 drive enclosure. Vast Technology uses 2D and 3D Nand Flash technology.
Vast Technology has currently developed 4TB, 8TB, 16TB, 25TB, 32TB and 128TB drives which are in beta test. The cost of Vast SSFAD Devices will be slightly lower than the cost for SSD’s. Market analysis has shown that Nand Flash drops in price about every 4 to 6 months. We are also currently developing a 512TB SSFAD.
As a data center or large data manager you know the value and cost of space, cooling and replacement. Spinning disk drives are no longer an option for many reasons, and standard SSD drives are not scalable, are expensive and do not have internal components that are easily or economically replaced.
The Vast Enterprise SSFAD solutions include 4U servers with capacities of 1.5PB, 3PB, 6.1PB & 12.3PB. All are housed in a 4U rack-mount server cabinet footprint.
WHY VAST STORAGE
VAST USES LESS SPACE BY INCREASING CAPACITY
There is no technology today that can match VAST Drives for data storage capacity. The larger the capacity the smaller the space requirements. This equals better bottom line, less space, less power and less heat. VAST Drives are a incredible breakthrough in its ability to rein in the present day data center resource consumption.
RELIABILITY INCREASE – LESS REPLACEMENT COSTS
Because VAST Drives utilize a patented configuration of micro sd card in a raid within a raid configuration, reliability increases and replacement is as simple as selecting the corrupted card using VAST’s proprietary software, and replacing the low cost sd card component.
VAST versatility where you can upgrade, increase or change your Storage Capacity on demand without ever buying new hardware for at least the next 2 Decades. That means dramatic saving on infrastructure cost for Enterprise for at least the next 20 years or more.
UNMATCHED READ/WRITE SPEEDS
Unmatched read/write speeds can be achieved anytime within our units. Therefore, any future increases in read/write speeds required will just simply need a version upgrade that will be done automatically within the unit. This is similar to Windows or IOS would automatically downloading and installing system updates on your OS.
