SGI InfiniteStorage 5000
SGI InfiniteStorage 5000 is a RAID storage system that combines hardware with a choice of host interfaces and drive technologies in a powerful external storage platform. This is SGI’s first storage system to employ 6 Gb/s SAS technology. The system delivers bandwidth up to 4,000 MB/s on sustained reads from disk, a 4X performance improvement compared to the previous generation product. The system delivers 40,000 IOPS (input/output operations per second) random disk reads, a more than 2X improvement over the prior generation.
