X-IO Technologies is a recognized innovator in the storage industry. The X-IO Intelligent Storage Element (ISE) systems are based on two decades of invention and investment by veteran storage industry experts, and deliver unmatched price/performance, reliability and scale for enterprise and cloud applications and infrastructure.
X-IO Intelligent Storage drives extreme performance for virtual desktop and server infrastructures, while dramatically reducing storage costs and footprint. Plug-and-perform Intelligent Storage solutions are customer proven to accelerate transactional, reporting and business intelligence applications by a factor of 3X or more.
ISE – Intelligent Storage Element
Performance for Life X-IO
ISE Storage Systems operate at a high-performance level for their entire life-cycle despite capacity availability. Most enterprise systems require 25% to 40% of unused storage to operate at the level that X-IO ISE Systems do at 99% capacity. ISE systems consistently outperform other vendors’ all-HDD and all-SSD arrays by safely utilizing two-to-four times more performance from every spindle.
Repair & Restore
Instead of needing drive replacements, X-IO ISE Storage Systems have the capability of repairing and restoring failed media themselves. The most common cause of drive failure is disk vibration. X-IO has patented technology in the ISE that reduces drive vibration to practically zero. Every ISE unit reads each drive continuously to detect early signs of degradation. Even while in repair mode, the ISE Storage System operates at full performance and full capacity.
Accelerate with Flash
X-IO ISE Storage Arrays moves data based on demand, making the all-HDD in ISE 200 and 700 series faster than most all-flash arrays. ISE Storage downteirs data the moment it cools off. By doing this, it ensures that certain data is not unnecessarily moved to the mainline teir, compromising speed and performance. Hybrid competitors use flash as their mainline storage tier; ISE uses flash for acceleration. That’s why none of the competitors can run fast when they’re full.
ISE Storage Systems
X-IO’s Intelligent Storage Element (ISE) G3 Storage Arrays deliver 100% performance, even at 100% capacity utilization for virtualized, OLTP and cloud hosting environments.
The ISE is offered in a wide range of hard disk and flash enabled configurations, each designed to address the most challenging performance demands of today’s datacenters. The ISE deeply integrates with a wide variety of operating systems and hypervisors, making it a perfect solution for virtualization and server administrators.
