Greenliant Introduces High Reliability G-card™ NVMe Flash Storage Products for Enterprise and Internet Datacenter Applications

SANTA CLARA, CALIF. – January 12, 2015 – Greenliant Systems, a leader in energy-efficient, highly secure and reliable solid state storage products, has introduced its new G7100 Series G-card™ NVMe flash storage products to select system integrators, OEMs, enterprise and Internet customers. G-card is Greenliant’s high capacity NVMe flash storage solution designed for primary storage applications that require ultra-high reliability with sustainable low-latency and high IOPS performance. Building on Greenliant’s expertise in embedded storage, G-card complements the NANDrive™ and ArmourDrive™ solid state drive (SSD) families to provide a comprehensive portfolio of data storage solutions.

G-card utilizes Greenliant’s advanced controller and an array of NANDrive SSDs in a standard PCIe add-in card form factor. In contrast to other PCIe flash cards that use discrete NAND, G-card deploys Distributed ECC Architecture with each NANDrive building-block having its own ECC engine. This innovative architecture not only improves scalability in card capacity, but also ensures sustainable performance and reliability during the product life. In addition to the distributed ECC engines, G-card is equipped with on-board hardware RAID to provide an industry leading system-level lifetime endurance of up to 10 Drive Writes Per Day (DWPD) for 5 years. With an intelligent power interrupt data protection circuit for the on-board buffer memory, G-card can commit host write operations without risk of data loss due to sudden power interruptions. Being NVMe compliant, G-card is bootable on multiple operating systems.Greenliant G7100-Series High Reliability NVMe Flash Storage G-card for Enterprise & Internet Datacenters

While other PCIe card products require substantial host resources to perform, G-card’s advanced architecture only needs minimal host resources to achieve bottleneck-free performance that scales linearly with multiple cards installed in a server. Its sustainable low latency, high IOPS, robust reliability and excellent scalability make G-card ideal for mission critical I/O intensive applications, such as database, in-memory computing, big data analytics, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and online transaction processing (OLTP). Using the bundled software utility, G-card user capacity can be flexibly configured for performance and capacity tradeoffs. By maximizing the lifespan and reliability of 2-bits-per-cell (MLC) NAND flash, G-card offers modern enterprise and Internet datacenters a cost-effective tier-one primary storage solution.

“Leveraging our in-depth flash memory knowledge and volume-proven NAND controller expertise, Greenliant is addressing the industry’s increasing need for higher reliability, higher performance and larger capacity flash-based storage solutions,” said Bing Yeh, CEO of Greenliant Systems. “With G-card, customers can achieve the efficiency and scalability required to meet their rapidly growing data storage demands.”

Availability
G7100 Series G-card products are currently offered in two raw capacities; G7101 with 1.37 TB and G7102 with 2.75 TB. For more information, contact a Greenliant authorized sales representative
