NexGen Storage Announces Industry’s First Solid-State Performance Guarantee
LOUISVILLE, CO – Aug. 23, 2012 – Reflecting unwavering confidence in its solid-state storage systems, NexGen Storage today unveiled its industry-first solid-state performance guarantee. Under the terms of its offer, NexGen guarantees that it will improve performance per rack unit or capacity density versus any other storage system by delivering:
• 10X more IOPS per rack unit versus conventional disk-based storage arrays(1,2)
• 3X more IOPS per rack unit versus conventional hybrid storage arrays(1,3)
• 3X more raw capacity (GB per rack unit) with equivalent IOPS per rack unit versus all-SSD arrays(1,4)
“NexGen’s PCIe-Hybrid architecture and ioControl Operating Environment allow us to offer this unprecedented solid-state performance guarantee,” said Chris McCall, vice president of marketing, NexGen Storage. “With NexGen storage, organizations can be assured that they will have the performance they need, 24/7, even in the most demanding mixed workload environments – guaranteed.”
NexGen’s ability to offer its exceptional performance guarantee stems from its PCIe solid-state architecture, which was built from the ground up to eliminate bottlenecks and maximize solid-state performance. Deploying PCIe solid-state, rather than solid-state drives, removes bottlenecks caused by disk drive connections and controllers. Customers benefit from maximum performance while boosting the number of slots available for low cost capacity disk drives. At the same time, NexGen’s systems maximize efficiency by moving stale data in real time to cost-efficient disk drives. NexGen partners with Fusion-io to bring this technology to market, and offers the best price/performance ratio of any midrange storage solution.
“Talk is cheap and many flash-based vendors are making gargantuan claims out there. NexGen, on the other hand, is putting money where its mouth is. This is the best guarantee I have seen in the industry and once again establishes NexGen as the one to beat when it comes to QoS in a storage system,” said Arun Taneja, founder and president, Taneja Group.
In addition to delivering more performance or capacity, NexGen’s ioControl Operating Environment allows users to manage performance just like capacity. Unlike any other shared storage system, NexGen offers both Storage QoS for managing performance and Service Levels to ensure mission-critical application performance no matter what happens.
The NexGen performance guarantee will be available on every n5-150, which is available today through authorized NexGen resellers. For more information, please contact NexGen Sales at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NexGen Storage will be offering demonstrations of its n5 Series performance management capabilities integrated with VMware’s vCenter Server, and will be showcasing its PCIe solid-state storage systems, at NexGen booth #2334 at VMworld 2012, August 26-30, in San Francisco, California. Those visiting the booth will have the opportunity to win noise cancelling headphones and an iPad, plus learn more about NexGen’s industry-first solid-state performance guarantee.

1 IOPS measured using a predefined small block size, mixed, random workload applied to existing storage and the NexGen n5-150. Data must be highly available and able to sustain both a storage device failure (SSD or disk) and a power failure.
2 Any conventional disk drive based system with SAS, SATA or FC disks qualifies.
3 Any conventional hybrid system with SAS, SATA or FC SSDs qualifies.
4 Any all-SSD array with SAS, SATA or FC SSDs qualifies.
