Modern number-crunching infrastructures (i.e. big data or ML) are all scale-out. They are big, complex, and constantly changing. Traditional storage systems simply do not have the right characteristics to cope with this kind of challenge. At the same time, direct-attached storage (DAS) is fast but inefficient, without data services, and complex to manage at scale.

Pavilion’s Hyperparallel Flash Array (HFA) responds to these needs. Combining the benefits and performance of DAS NVMe-based flash memory with the flexibility, availability, and data services of storage area networks, Pavilion yields a quicker ROI than local storage and improves TCO when compared to traditional enterprise storage arrays.
