Arkologic Corp. Announces Record SPEC SFS Benchmark Result

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.

The full Arkologic SMA 8100 benchmark submission can be reviewed on the SPEC website at the following URL:

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.
Organizations from small to large are increasingly adopting cloud solutions to deliver essential business services at a much lower cost. According to cyber security experts, the frequency and severity of cyber-attacks are on the rise, causing alarm to businesses and customers across a variety of industries. To defend against exploits like these, a company must adopt a comprehensive security defense strategy that is designed for their business. In 2015, organizations such as United Airlines, Sony...
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
Puppet Labs has announced the next major update to its flagship product: Puppet Enterprise 2015.2.

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not.

The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...
