CHICAGO, Ill., June 11 -- Scalable Informatics, Inc. (Scalable), a leading provider of high performance, tightly-coupled storage and compute solutions for a wide range of data, I/O, and process-intensive applications, today announced STAC reports KDB130528 and KDB130529, describing record-setting results for their siFlash and JackRabbit storage systems. Both reports cover baseline STAC-M3 Benchmarks of the Kx Systems kdb+ 2.8 database and will be announced by Scalable CEO Dr. Joseph Landman at the annual STAC Summit at the Conference Center at UBS Tower in Chicago.
Scalable’s siFlash system set several records, including the fastest response time in the NBBO (National Best Bid and Offer) and Write benchmarks compared to all publicly disclosed results to date for all systems, as well as the best performance in 5 of 17 benchmarks (STAC-M3.ß1.1T.NBBO.LAT2, STAC-M3.v1.1T.WRITE.LAT2, STAC-M3.ß1.10T.STATS-AGG.LAT2, STAC-M3.ß1.10T.STATS-UI.LAT2, and STAC-M3.ß1.1T.STATS-UI.LAT2) among systems using kdb+ 2.8. Of particular note, siFlash delivered over 2x the performance of the previous best published results for the MKTSNAP benchmark using spinning disk or flash technology. JackRabbit delivered the second fastest response time in the NBBO test, coming in less than one second behind the siFlash system.
Scalable’s siFlash system is a Scalable Informatics model SF4-T64b server with 64 Smart Storage Optimus SSDs and 512 GB RAM in 4U. The Scalable’s JackRabbit is a Scalable Informatics JR4-T60b server with 40 Hitachi SATA drives and 20 Sandisk Pliant SLC SSDs in 4U. Both systems used CentOS 6.3 with the xfs filesystem and 2 x 8-core Intel Xeon E5-2687W 3.10 GHz CPUs.
