Hardware NAS - LucidFiler / LucidFlash by Lucid Technology, Inc. - IP SAN, iSCSI NAS, NFS

1U 20-bay All-flash Expandable NAS for High Performance Workloads

LucidFlash SS3120 All-flash NAS has been engineered to accelerate and simplify SMB storage infrastructure. LucidFlash is 100% solid state and provides a complete set of robust features to make the applications run faster and more efficiently. Packed in a tiny 1U footprint, it offers rackmountable data storage server that takes critical business applications, like databases and email, to breakthrough performance levels, all with simple management and at a competitive price. Thanks to its extreme performance capabilities, LucidFlash leverages a multitude of storage efficiency technologies to meet the demands of a typical enterprise.

LucidFlash NAS is optimized for the native capabilities of flash and yields significant performance improvements over legacy storage solutions especially in how it handles write traffic and data protection. LucidFlash is a unified storage solution that combines flash memory with high-speed 10Gbit Ethernet interfaces to converge storage, backup, and disaster recovery over iSCSI, NFS, and CIFS protocols. Offering high IOPS at sub-millisecond latency, LucidFlash accelerates I/O-intensive workloads and increases the performance for business-critical enterprise applications.

Why does storage have to be so complicated? RAID Management. Performance tuning. Tiering. Caching. Isn’t there a better way? Absolutely – LucidFlash SS3120 All-flash NAS lets you build an IP SAN and:

    • Dramatically simplify storage management
    • Reduce latency to the millisecond
    • Achieve 10-to-1 data reduction and drive down the cost of storage with inline deduplication
    • Protect your data against drive failures and bit errors with RAID-Z and checksums
    • Allocate capacity on demand and maximize the storage of data with thin provisioning
    • Back up and replicate your data with no impact on performance with unlimited snapshots

The LucidFlash SS3120 NAS is powered by the LucidNAS storage software and features ZFS filesystem support which includes data integrity protection, periodic snapshots, automatic repair, and RAID-Z to help manage and store your critical files safely and corruption-free. By combining increased throughput and decreased latency with enterprise class reliability, the LucidFlash helps you boost productivity and improve core operations that depend on applications where responsiveness drives the bottom line.

If you are looking to make all flash the core of your primary storage needs, LucidFlash NAS delivers significant performance advantages across varying workloads in business and mission critical environments.
