BiTMICRO MAXio PCIe SSD Drives Reach 1.5 Million IOPS

MAXio E-Series Delivers Maximum Performance for Storage Systems that Regularly Experience Heavy Data Processing Loads

BiTMICRO® Networks, Inc. announced that the company has achieved 1.5 million IOPS at 4KB random read in a multi-drive configuration with its MAXio® E-Series PCIe SSDs.

Reaching 1.5 million IOPS is monumental for storage systems that regularly experience heavy processing loads. Deploying the MAXio family of solid state drives (SSDs) will benefit organizations that utilize virtual infrastructures and make business-critical decisions based on their ability to access and process large amounts of data. For example, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environments and flash array white-box manufacturers that perform heavy data processing such as de-duplication will benefit greatly from this increased performance measurement for storage.

BiTMICRO MAXio E-Series PCIe SSDs, available up to 3TB, present a cost-effective solution for organizations wishing to address storage system performance gaps left by hard disk drives (HDDs). By significantly out-performing hard drive counterparts due to their scalable configuration and large capacity, MAXio E-Series PCIe SSDs are able to meet the requirements of the enterprise market.

The latest MAXio SSDs now include DriveLightTM Management Software, tailored specifically for the MAXio® E-Series PCIe SSD family. DriveLight Management Software allows users to conveniently manage drives in a single interface. The software offers an array of powerful, interactive features to provide information for administrators to monitor or troubleshoot performance and health data on MAXio drives.  DriveLight Management Software also allows users to complete device configuration, perform firmware updates, and more:

  • Monitor performance - including bandwidth, read/write ratio, and CPU utilization - with live graphs and tables that offer actionable data to track hotspots and schedule system maintenance.

  • Oversee drive capacity and health data through an easy-to-use, interactive interface.

  • Receive a quantitative view on the drive's life, temperature, and link-up status.

  • Access data through straightforward logs via a report generator in csv format.

  • Update firmware without interrupting device monitoring.

"Innovating storage solutions has always been at the forefront of the BiTMICRO philosophy," said Stephen Uriarte, Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President of BiTMICRO. "Achieving 1.5 million IOPS with our MAXio PCIe SSDs is proof of this innovation-particularly for storage systems that experience heavy processing loads on a regular basis. Using MAXio SSDs instead of hard disk drives in a multi-drive setup allows any organization that performs heavy data processing-such as VDI and flash arrays-to utilize critical data with increased productivity and business agility, lower operational costs, reduced power consumption, and high capacity. What's more, since MAXio SSDs now come with DriveLight Management Software, users can manage their drives more conveniently while monitoring performance data."

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene.
