Pavilion Data Systems Offers HFA to Increase Performance for Native S3 Data; Gurpreet Singh, Sundar Kanthadai Quoted

Pavilion Data Systems has launched S3 object storage on the Pavilion Hyperparallel Flash Array (HFA) to extend the company’s storage capabilities and become HFA with native support for block, file and object storage, the company reported on Wednesday. 

“With the addition of native fast object support to the Pavilion HFA, customers can, for the first time, enjoy both industry leading high performance and ultra-low latency from one platform in a small footprint,” said Gurpreet Singh, Pavilion CEO. 

The Pavilion HFA will leverage NVMe-over-Fabrics (NVMe-oF) and the parallelism of flash to deliver an order of magnitude better performance and lower latency than legacy dual controller All Flash Arrays (AFAs).

The addition of S3 to the existing storage capabilities of the Pavilion HFA will further extend the company’s expertise in the third wave of storage, breaking from the legacy architecture of dual controller arrays to take advantage of a variety of controllers. 

Pavilion’s native S3 support will enable the company’s customers to take advantage of high performance local object storage, as well as tier to the public cloud for long term archive. The solution has been embraced as the standard for next generation workloads. 

“As organizations and applications increasingly adopt object storage as the platform of the future, they need the same high performance they have come to expect from their existing block and file based solutions,” added Singh. 

The company’s Object Storage will integrate an 80 GB/sec read and 35 GB/sec write throughput. Pavilion HFA performance will help solve the lack of affordable, performant object storage options aside from block or file protocols.  

With up to 20 controllers per 4U array, the Pavilion HFA is uniquely capable of delivering maximum performance to all block, file, and object workloads simultaneously. Customers also enjoy the flexibility to linearly and independently scale capacity or performance as needed. 

“As scale out applications move to a native S3 interface, Pavilion is proud to be the first HFA vendor to deliver Block, File, and Object storage capabilities on a single platform providing ease of use as well as performance and scalability for today, tomorrow, and beyond,” said Sundar Kanthadai, Pavilion Founder and VP of Engineering.
