With the growth of mobile, social, Big Data, and the Internet of Things, the quantity and variety of data has skyrocketed. InfiniFlash System IF500 is a massive scale-out, high performance, all-flash storage system that provides boundless scale, efficiency, and resiliency for OpenStack environments.


The InfiniFlash System IF500 provides petabyte-scale capacity, high density and performance for OpenStack/Ceph environments, delivering breakthrough economics for customers with big data storage requirements. The IF500 delivers the performance of an all-flash array with the economics of an HDD-based system. It is the ideal storage choice for medium to large OpenStack deployments, providing very low latency extreme IOPS, and sustained throughput.

Each system can be configured with up to 64 hot-swappable cards, delivering up to half a petabyte (512TB2 ) of raw flash storage in a 3U enclosure and up to 6PB in a single rack. The IF500 scales easily as each unit may connect up to eight servers. The Ceph cluster software provides high availability, load balancing, data replication and storage services required by OpenStack solutions.

One Storage Platform for all OpenStack Storage
