The addition of the WDS-8260 platform to the MemoryMatrix lineup has WARP Mechanics leading the industry in pure flash shared storage systems.

WARP Mechanics ( is pleased to announce general availability of the industry's leading flash storage appliance lineup. The new offering brings affordable high-capacity shared SSD systems to the next level.

The original WARP 38000-M MemoryMatrix is a pure SSD appliance. It offers 120TB in a 4u single shelf, capable of expanding to over a petabyte useable per datacenter cabinet.

But now, the WDS-8260 platform joins the MemoryMatrix portfolio. With a 2U form factor, it provides nearly 3PB of flash per cabinet today, with an upgrade path to 5PB+ per cabinet later this year.

The WDS-8260 was purposely built for SSD: It doubles the capacity and performance density compared to the previous platform, lowers IO latency, and improves hardware reliability.

The appliances exceed 500K IOPS in typical real world sustained read and write combinations per shelf. In fact, under common read intensive analytics configurations, each appliance can exceed 2M IOPS: far higher IOPS per RU than any system anywhere near its price range.

But the real differentiator is in the smart controller modules.

The WARP 38000-M controller modules don't just provide "me too" features such as fast block IO. In addition, they can run the complete WARPware Unified Storage stack. It is feature rich – delivering thin provisioning, deduplicaiton, snapshots, replication, and more. Plus, it can run advanced storage applications directly within the array: NAS, SAN, Lustre, Ceph, and Swift, just to name a few.

Once again, WARP Mechanics has set a new standard in the industry: No other flash storage system can match the cost, features, density, and performance of the MemoryMatrix appliance architecture, running on the new purpose built WDS-8260 platform.
