Arkologic Corporation today announced the publication of an industry standard NFS benchmark demonstrating the fastest Overall Response Time (ORT) ever achieved by an NFS server storage appliance. The SPECsfs2008 benchmark was conducted using Arkologic’s all-flash SMA 8100 system, which delivered an overall system response time of 0.33ms, more than twice as fast any of the previous benchmark submissions made by incumbent vendors such as EMC (NYSE:EMC) and NetApp (NASDAQ:NTAP).
“Our systems are designed to deliver blistering performance for the most demanding, compute-intensive environments,” said Tom Chin, CEO of Arkologic. “The most important metric to consider in increasing overall application performance is the time it typically takes a storage system to respond to an application’s request for data. This benchmark result shows that our SMA 8100 system has the ability to respond to these requests in less than half the time it takes our competitors systems to do so.”
“As one of Arkologic’s early channel partners, Bedrock is excited to take this next generation NFS storage system to customers in industries such as EDA, biotechnology, software development, and clients with similar performance requirements that need high throughput with low latency,” said Tom Holt, SVP Sales, Bedrock Technology Partners. “As one of the industry’s leading storage solutions providers, Bedrock is aware that I/O has become a bottleneck for EDA workloads, and deploying Arkologic storage shortens the time it takes to design and produce an ASIC.”
The Arkologic SMA 8100 all-flash NAS appliance is targeted toward performance-demanding compute infrastructures such as those found in the EDA, manufacturing, CGI, and biotechnology industries. The proven speed of the Arkologic SMA 8100 can enable these customers to dramatically reduce product developments cycles, increase productivity, and lower overall costs.

Arkologic was founded in 2010 to provide innovative solid-state storage solutions that enable customers to dramatically reduce product development cycles, increase productivity, and lower costs. Arkologic’s new, second generation Silicon Memory Array product, the SMA 8100, is an all solid-state NAS storage appliance that is specifically tuned and optimized to deliver all of the benefits of flash memory technology to a diverse range of application environments. The company’s products provide high throughput and low latency access to data for the most demanding application workloads, such as those found in Electronic Design Automation (EDA) infrastructures, Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) render farms, and web scale application delivery infrastructures.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
