ion SR-71mach6 SpeedServer™
All-SSD RAID Server

SR-71mach6 SpeedServer(TM) ion's SR-71mach6 SpeedServer™ is an all-SSD RAID server optimized to deliver more than 1 Million random read IOPS based on latest processors, fastest memory, and server network components in a compact, cost-effective, and low-power system. You might call this system "all-Flash" as much of the competition would, but if you look at the SR-71mach6 Configurator, you will find that it already supports Intel® Optane™ SSDs based on 3D XPoint™ technology, not Flash, for higher performance, much higher endurance and much lower latency than NAND Flash. If latency matters to your application, you should consider running that application ON the SR-71mach6 SpeedServer directly or deploying SR-71mach6 file servers. DAS or NAS or SAN? Now save 5%?


Your challenge: Build the fastest server possible?

SR-71mach6 SpeedServer More Cores? RAM? NVMe? SSDs? NICs?
  • 8 Intel® Xeon® Scalable cores at 3.6GHz
  • 96GB DDR4 RAM
  • 35TiB Intel DC SSD RAID5 Storage
  • >1M random IOPS
  • (6) 10Gb Ethernet ports
  • 16-44 Intel® Xeon® Scalable cores
  • Up to 768GB DDR4 RAM
  • Up to 70TiB Intel DC SSD RAID5 Storage
  • Up to (24) U.2 NVMe SSDs
  • Up to (10) 10Gb Ethernet ports

The SR-71mach6 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. Yes, this webserver and are both VMs on an SR-71 SpeedServer. A full snapshot of the Windows Server 2012 R2 VM for this web server takes about 3 minutes.

You are certainly looking at other all-Flash arrays. If those products cost more and their company is not profitable anyway, are they a wise choice? ION has a 25-year track record of building solid, reliable servers and more than 8 years of all-Flash storage experience.

ION's SR-71mach6 SpeedServer is built exclusively with Intel SSDs.
ION's SR-71mach6 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.

SQLIO on the SR-71mach5 SpeedServer running Windows® Server 2012 R2 achieved 101,000 IOPS of 8kB random writes with 1 ms average latency and 770,000 IOPS of 8kB random reads with less than 1 ms average latency with (24) 800GB RAID5 targets.
