Database High Availability Simplified

Why buy a storage array?
Get FlashGrid Storage Fabric software.

Turn standard NVMe PCIe SSDs inside database servers into scalable shared storage
0.4 to 264 TB per server
Leverage proven Oracle ASM for high availability and data mirroring
Maximize database performance with FlashGrid Read‑Local™ Technology

12x performance at 1/6 of the cost of a flash array

Open Storage Designed for Oracle Clusters

FlashGrid Storage Fabric leverages proven Oracle ASM capabilities for volume management, data mirroring, and high availability. With FlashGrid managing storage is an easy task for DBAs and server administrators.

Reduce Database Licensing Costs

Accomplish more with fewer CPU cores. FlashGrid Read-Local™ Technology reduces CPU consumption and the unproductive I/O wait time by accessing flash storage through the highly optimized NVMe driver stack.

Standardize High Bandwidth and Low Latencies with NVMe PCIe SSDs

NVMe, the industry standard for PCIe SSDs, delivers outstanding performance of up to 3 GB/s and up to 750,000 random IOPS per SSD. Performance of a single NVMe SSD is similar to the performance of a typical all-flash array. Each server can have multiple NVMe SSDs, up to 48 SSDs in some server models.

Prevent Network Congestion with FlashGrid Read‑Local™ Technology

A congested storage network can limit the performance advantages of using flash storage. The FlashGrid Read‑Local™ Technology reduces network traffic by up to 90% or more by serving read requests from local SSDs instead of moving data over the network. Unlike caching, the FlashGrid Read-Local™ Technology accelerates even large table scans and backup operations.

Minimize Costs with Standard Hardware of Your Choice

Reduce storage costs by up to 90% compared to proprietary storage hardware. Pay only for the flash capacity that you actually need for a particular cluster, even if required capacity is as small as 1TB. Leverage standard Ethernet network infrastructure. Fully eliminate or cut the amount of the high-cost Fibre Channel infrastructure.

“We had to migrate dozens of mission critical Oracle RAC databases from Exadata to AWS with FlashGrid SkyCluster, and were able to do it without sacrificing performance or availability.”

Rama Kolli, Sr. Director – Database Management, S&P Global Ratings

“FlashGrid SkyCluster provides us all elements needed for running our mission-critical Oracle databases in Azure: storage and networking software, deployment automation, and 24x7 support.”

Jay Wilder, Sr. Director of Software Engineering, Nuance Communications

“With FlashGrid and AWS we can now deploy a new application within two weeks instead of six months, without compromising our availability SLA.”

David Urban, VP Operations, Aria Systems

“SkyCluster for Azure proved to be a reliable solution that is easy to implement and support for us as a systems integrator.”


“With our new virtualized RAC running on FlashGrid architecture we do a 125GB full table scan in 6 seconds. That is an 11x improvement over our previous setup.”

Sam Shiel, Oracle DBA, Simplyhealth

“Implementing Oracle RAC with FlashGrid in AWS is an important milestone in Digital Virgo’s cloud journey.”

Mikolaj Klimek, Deputy Director IT Operations and Infrastructure, Digital Virgo
