Hewlett Packard's VMA-series Memory Arrays are external systems offering high capacities of solid state storage, using hotswappable flash memory devices. The VMA-series Memory Arrays feature rackable external solid state storage in capacities ranging from 5TB to 10TB per Single-level Cell (SLC) array. Multiple arrays can create scalable capacities up to petabytes of solid state storage.
The arrays are designed for customers who need low-latency response times, very high I/O performance, and large capacity. Solid state memory technology provides these storage products with no-moving-parts reliability and low power and cooling requirements. These arrays offer a choice of PCIe-direct attach or Fibre Channel SAN attach. PCIe-direct attach with rackmount servers offers lowest latency speeds for single-server applications. Fibre Channel SAN attach with either blade or rackmount servers allows multiple servers to operate on the same shared data, with practically unlimited amounts of solid state storage.
