Hyper ISE is a new class of storage system that balances price, performance, capacity, and reliability. In order to understand how this is achieved, it is important to first understand how Hyper ISE was designed from the ground up. It is relatively easy to integrate SSD into a storage system; the hard part is using those drives effectively.

Hyper ISE creates a new class of storage system, focused on performance-driven applications. It is a storage system that is true amalgamation of solid-state drive (SSD) and hard disk drive (HDD) technologies into a single pool of capacity. The X-IO Continuous Adaptive Data Placement (CADP) algorithm, native to the Hyper ISE, identifies hotspot data and places it on the SSD and keeps all other data on the HDD. By only utilizing Enterprise SAS HDDs, high performance levels are maintained, even for the data being serviced from the HDD capacity.The Hyper ISE architecture ensures that the SSD resources are never wasted, performance is never compromised, and capacity is always cost effective.This results in the best price, performance, and capacity ratios in the industry with unmatched reliability.

Hyper ISE provides the ideal balance of four fundamental elements of storage - price, performance, capacity, and reliability. All four elements are inextricably bound together to provide a unique solution to real-world problems in the datacenter. Balancing them leads to lower costs, improved reliability and data integrity, and increased application performance.  This changes the economics of IT and enables users to do far more with their storage than ever before.


Hyper ISE significantly improves database application performance transparently, enabling customers to avoid huge infrastructure investments. Query times are being reduced by up to 20 times.

Hyper ISE enables virtual desktop implementations; supporting thousands of virtual desktops in a single storage system, surpassing performance requirements, making virtual desktop environments work seamlessly,and fitting well within budgetary constraints.

Hyper ISE extends the consolidation benefits of server virtualization,achieving up to 50:1 virtual-to-physical ratios.

High performance cloud storage requires predictability in both performance and cost. While it is easy to determine capacity growth rates, traditional storage systems are unable to predict the price of performance. This creates a major risk that either impacts the cost of the service or does not provide the required performance back to the user. Hyper ISE uniquely solves this core issue, providing predictability in performance and cost.
