The SR-71mach5 SpeedServer makes disk-impossible performance affordable for your data center through the optimized use of SSD RAID and standard high-volume server building blocks from Intel.

ION's SR-71mach5 SpeedServer is built exclusively with Intel SSDs.
ION's SR-71mach5 SpeedServer starts with an Intel ServerBoard.
In 1998, ION became the first company in the world to qualify as an Intel Authorized Solution Provider, the program now known as Intel Technology Provide, Platinum Member.

The SR-71mach5 SpeedServer running IOmeter "on target" with Windows® Server 2012 R2 performed well more than 1 Million IOs per second, 1,412,000 IOPS, of 4kB random reads with 240 microsecond average latency.

Design your ultimate server with our SR-71mach5 Configurator.

Hard to believe this performance? Especially at that price? Take the SR-71mach5 SpeedServer for a testdrive!
