Storage Fabric

Software-defined storage for Oracle RAC clusters. Forget storage arrays.

 

FlashGrid Storage Fabric software enables high-speed shared storage for Oracle clusters in a variety of infrastructure environments including bare-metal servers, private and public clouds, virtual machines, or extended distance clusters.

Bare-metal servers

High performance storage for Oracle RAC with no storage array, only standard servers of your choice.

12x performance at 1/6 of the cost of a flash array
10’s of GB/s and millions of IOPS
100’s of TB of capacity per cluster

Private clouds

FlashGrid Storage Fabric enables shared storage for running Oracle RAC on any private cloud that has VMs or bare-metal servers. FlashGrid Read-Local™ Technology minimizes storage latency for maximum performance. FlashGrid Cloud Area Network provides additional networking capabilities required by RAC, including multicast, VIPs, and quality-of-service.

VMware, Oracle VM, KVM

FlashGrid Storage Fabric software enables Oracle RAC in virtualized environments by providing high-performance storage shared between VMs. No storage array needed.

Extended distance (stretched) clusters

FlashGrid Storage Fabric is the simplest and the highest performance storage solution for extended distance (a.k.a. stretched) Oracle RAC clusters.

Architecture highlights

Shared storage based on local devices: NVMe, SAS SSD, virtual disks
Storage devices attached to compute nodes (hyper-converged) or in separate storage nodes
Standard x86 servers or VMs used as compute and storage nodes
Fully distributed architecture with no single point of failure
Mirroring of data across nodes, data centers, or cloud availability zones
Network connectivity using commodity Ethernet
FlashGrid Read-Local Technology minimizes network overhead by serving reads from local storage devices

Designed for Oracle Clusters

Integrates seamlessly with Oracle Clusterware and ASM
Easy to use for Oracle DBAs
Technical support with deep Oracle expertise.
