Violin Memory has two flash array starter bundles to give enterprises "an easy and affordable way" into all-flash array performance.

Both are based on the high-end FSP 7700 all-flash array, which can provide, Violin says, two million IOPS. The Scalable Starter Kit has:

  • Two Violin FSP 7700 Modular Scalable Array Controllers
  • Two switches
  • Two all-flash arrays with 70TB raw capacity (35TB per shelf)
  • Violin Concerto OS 7 and Symphony Management Software

Violin says the Concerto OS 7 delivers enterprise data services and management simplicity for primary storage applications.

As needs grow extra Violin arrays can be seamlessly added, as storage shelves, to a maximum of 1.4 petabytes raw capacity.

The Stretch Cluster Starter Kit spans two sites in a metropolitan area, and provides automated disaster recovery for applications, business data, and services running on it if a disaster should happen. It uses synchronous mirroring of all selected LUNs across the geographically dispersed locations with support for zero Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO).
