Looking for more storage? Like to dabble in Flash Memory? Then check out the new Flash array from Whiptail. <br><br>"Whiptail, the flash array startup from Whippany, New Jersey, has boosted and renamed its XLR8r flash array, and launched a 72TB flash storage monster called INVICTA.<br><br>The XLR8r array becomes ACCELA, a brand name reminiscent of New England's high-speed Acela train service, and gets this new stuff:<br><br> Random Read IOPS go from >175,000 to 200,000. Random writes stay at 250,000<br> Sequential writes is listed at 1.9GB/sec – previously it was 2GB/sec.<br><br>Whiptail says it is run by the Racerunner O/S and has "protected write buffers and complete VMWare vCenter management, including the industry’s first complete implementation of native VAAI". Data protection is via RAID, with levels 0, 1, 5, 6 and 10. The product's flash has a claimed seven-year working life." <br><br>Here's the linkage:<br><br><a href="http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/05/11/whiptail_invicta/">http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/05/11/whiptail_invicta/</a></p> </font></font>
