The most performant, dense, scalable, and flexible data storage platform

Big-data analytics, AI/ML, mobile, and cloud-delivered applications using MongoDB are driving a new paradigm in IT infrastructure design. Resources need to be freed. They need to be available and deployed so that the ever-changing requirements can be satisfied on a minute-by-minute basis. This means that compute, network, and storage resources all need to scale independently to meet an ever-increasing and diverse set of application requirements.

In the last decade, server performance has increased 10X due to advances in CPU and GPU design, but flash storage has lagged behind mainly due to using interfaces designed for hard disk drives. Enter the NVMe interface that is designed for flash and unlocks its performance. Many boosted MongoDB’s performance by adding NVMe SSDs to their server nodes. However, DAS SSDs have multiple issues, including over-provisioning, limited HA, and the lack of enterprise functionality. So, many businesses disaggregated their storage and used all-flash arrays (AFAs) with NVMe SSDs. However, adding NVMe drives to the dual controller platform in many AFAs does not unlock the full performance of NVMe SSDs since these AFAs cannot provide the parallelism these SSDs require. This raises challenges in scaling MongoDB, requiring businesses to use multiple AFAs when they disaggregate. Pavilion has a better way.

The Pavilion HyperParallel Data Platform™

Pavilion delivers rich enterprise data services for all of your applications. Modern applications deserve a modern storage OS. The Pavilion HyperOS™ is designed for NVMe. With no legacy to protect, the Pavilion HyperParallel Data Platform is free
from years of code bloat, heavy reliance on DRAM, and backward compatibility for SATA and SAS SSDs.

The Pavilion HyperParallel Data Platform does not compromise on NVMe performance. It provides 120 GB/s throughput, 25μs of latency, 20M IOPS, and 2.2 petabytes of density in a compact 4U form factor. It provides MongoDB applications with the performance of locally attached NVMe SSDs. The Pavilion HyperParallel Data Platform uses 72 NVMe SSDs and supports multiple block and file protocols
with NVMe-oF/RDMA, NVMe-oF/TCP, iSCSI, NFS (v3, v4, pNFS, RDMA), and S3.

The Pavilion HyperParallel Data Platform requires no proprietary software to be installed on a server farm and uses standard NVMe, NVMe-oF, Ethernet, and InfiniBand drivers, freeing up host resources for processing and reducing deployment risk.
