Data Storage Solutions – STORTRENDS 3500i

Architected for Performance

The StorTrends 3500i is the industry’s first SSD Hybrid storage array that combines SSD Caching, SSD Tiering and Automatically Tuned Volumes (ATV). These three patented technologies provide the ultimate combination of extreme performance and optimal capacity to meet the budgetary needs of your organization. Each 3500i unit is configured specifically to meet each users’ performance and capacity requirements. Users can run the free StorTrends iDATA Tool to generate a comprehensive report identifying capacity utilization, IOPS usage, reads versus writes for volumes, network bandwidth performance, server statistics and application information. The detailed report will help identify environments’ performance metrics and provide insight on the type of configuration best suited for the infrastructure.
Architected for Performance

The StorTrends 3500i is designed to not merely support Flash (SSD) drives, but to automate their performance and turn that into huge benefits and savings for your company. Its versatility, deep feature set and outstanding performance mean that the StorTrends 3500i is perfectly suited for the most demanding applications — including high performance databases, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), On-Line Transaction Processing (OLTP), cloud storage and mixed workload environments.
