Violin Memory Announces Deduplication and Compression

Wednesday, September 3, 2014


Violin-Memory announced today the long awaited Concerto 2200 Data Reduction Solution.  With Inline deduplication and compression, the Concerto 2200 solution gives customers maximum storage efficiency, with deduplication rates commonly between 6:1 and 10:1. Delivering up to 672 TB of usable storage at a data reduction rate of 6:1, the Concerto 2200 solution is focused on mixed and multiple workload environments and gives customers granular control at the file, share, and share group level.

The Concerto 2200 solution consists of two high availability (HA) appliances that deduplicate and compress shares, share groups or files from NFS and write the data to LUNs on either a Violin 6000 or 7000 series All Flash Array. The LUNs being serviced can all be on one array, or scaled across up to four arrays, depending on your requirements. With 6:1 data reduction, the Concerto 2200 solution is capable of storing 672 TB of data or enough data for 2,500 persistent desktops in a VDI deployment at a street cost of approximately US$1.81/GB or US$75/desktop.
