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 10%?

 

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 blog.ioncomputer.com are both VMs on an SR-71 SpeedServer.

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.

The SR-71mach5 SpeedServer as a Windows® Server 2012 R2 file server delivers 1M IOPS to (5) IOmeter clients performing 8kB random reads, with just 1.08 millisecond average latency.
