Pavilion delivers the true benefits of NVMe flash for today's modern massively-parallel data applications

Pavilion Data is Industry’s only NVMe Over Fabrics Storage Platform. It is a true end-to-end NVMe solution, from the host all the way down to the media. The platform is 100% standards compliant with zero host-side presence or dependencies. It is built for the modern massively parallel and clustered web and analytics applications.

Pavilion delivers the true benefits of NVMe flash and storage class memory for today's modern massively parallel data applications. By allowing NVMe SSDs to be shared over an Ethernet fabric, Pavilion unshackles it from the confines of a server to be shared across an entire application cluster.

The Power of Parallelism

NVMe is a new storage technology and it is inherently parallel. It is 250 times more parallel than SAS and 2000 times more parallel than SATA. Today, Modern web (transactional) and Machine Learning/AI (real-time analytics) applications are built on massively parallel clustered databases and filesystems because of their highperformance requirements. Examples include Cassandra, MongoDB, HDFS, GPFS, etc.

Pavilion’s Storage Platform delivers the next generation of composable disaggregated infrastructure (CDI) by separating storage from computing resources to allow them to scale and grow independently. In today’s large-scale environments it allows customers to become more agile by delivering the exact amount of composable resources at any given time.

The 2nd Wave of NVMe

To take advantage and deliver of this massive parallelism in modern storage media, and to deliver this raw, parallel performance to modern data applications, Pavilion had to challenge legacy scale-up or scale-out storage architectures. We had to rethink how storage platforms should be built with NVMe for the applications of tomorrow in mind. To that end, we designed a purpose-built NVMe platform from the ground up; a platform that can truly exploit this parallelism and deliver it natively to the modern data applications.

NVMe protocol vastly simplifies the host stack and it results in a massive reduction in host CPU utilization. To deliver on NVMe’s promise, we knew we needed to rely on standards-based NVMe-oF protocol that is native and inbox to most modern server OSes. Unlike other designs, we deliver the true performance of NVMe without encumbering the host with additional proprietary drivers or software.

The result? And ultra-modular 4RU Chassis platform that provides seamless, independent performance and capacity expansion and we realize that an Enterprise AFA is not a JBOF or an appliance. That’s why, when designing our platform, data availability and resiliency was of paramount importance. With no single point of failure, true N:1 redundant controllers, Dual-Parity RAID, Snapshots and clones, and thin provisioning our customers now reap the benefits of shared resources but with the performance of DAS at scale.

Enterprise Ready - All time is up time
Enterprise Ready - All time is up time

All components are fully-redundant and hot-swappable, including active-active storage controllers, management controllers, PCIe Fabric, NVMe drives, fans, and power-supplies, offering unmatched availability and resiliency.

Enterprise Data Management

Dual Parity RAID Protection, Thin Provisioning, and Zero-space instant snapshots are just a handful of enterprise features built into the platform. A simple and intuitive web-based management GUI is complemented with standard storage management features such as REST API, SNMP, and Active Directory integration. Built in telemetry powers our cloud-based analytics engine for pro-active, predictive scenario modeling and support.

Commodity off the shelf components

Pavilion leverages standard x86 components throughout, including off the shelf processors and SSDs. No custom ASICs or FPGAs. This leads to rapid innovation and ability to leverage the latest technologies leading to unparalleled density and performance.

Commodity off the shelf components

100% Standards Compliant NVMe-oFs

Standard Ethernet networking, Standard NVMe SSDs, Standard host software stacks… Pavilion does not require any custom software to be installed on application hosts by working with standard RoCE 40GbE or 100GbE adapters, and any v1.x compliant NVMe-oFs driver. Host resources are not required to scale performance, freeing up those resources for scaling applications, not storage.

100% Standards Compliant NVMe-oFs

OpenChoice Storage:

OpenChoice Supported NVMe SSD Families

  • Micron 9200
  • HGST SN200
  • Samsung 1725b
  • Intel P4800X, P4510, P4610

Pavilion OpenChoice Storage allows customers to purchase their own SSDs to use in the Pavilion chassis. This allows customers to enjoy several benefits:

  • Freedom to Innovate by embracing and ugrading to the next generation SSDs at the customer’s pace, based upon the customer’s business needs
  • Freedom to Repurpose by reusing and repurposing storage media and capacity to/from anywhere in a customer’s environment, as often as needed
  • Freedom to Save by leveraging direct NVMe SSD supplier relationships

OpenChoice includes Next Business Day support but does not provide warranty on customer-owned SSDs. Pavilion simply licenses the populated NVMe drive slots (per year) and customers purchase a variable number of controllers and network ports depending upon their application requirements.

Innovate on your timeline

OpenChoice is a new model that defies conventional thinking about how storage is procured and deployed. By eliminating Big Storage’s tightly-controlled, three-year storage refresh cycles and removing capacity-based pricing, OpenChoice Storage puts the choice to innovate, reuse and save back in the hands of IT.

Buy YOUR own storage media, from YOUR supplier, and use it where YOU want.

Buy YOUR own storage media, from YOUR supplier, and use it where YOU want.
CPU, memory and SSD technology evolve at 3-4x the rate of the standard three-year storage OEM refresh cycle, leaving you and your data center well behind the technology curve. The inability to reuse media across storage devices, even arrays from the same vendor, results in Trapped Capacity, which is storage capacity and CapEx stranded in fixed siloed environments. By disaggregating storage from compute and allowing you to use your own media, Pavilion Data does away with Lock-in Refresh Cycles, empowering you to arbitrage freely on declining SSD prices, increasing capacity and upgrade on your own timeline. Most major NVMe SSDs are already supported, and we are always qualifying new SSDs.

Flat pricing NOT tied to storage capacity; EVER!

Flat pricing NOT tied to storage capacity; EVER!
We don’t think it makes any sense for you to pay us 400% markup on SSDs that we did not manufacture, and the same goes for capacity based pricing. Why should you pay for maintenance, support and software based upon capacity? We don’t think you should be subjected to these Predatory Business Models, which is why we have one flat price, guaranteed not to change for the lifetime of the array, regardless of capacity. OPENCHOICE is designed to let you expand performance and capacity independently, just-in-time.

All-inclusive, SIMPLE, cloud-like subscription price guaranteed for the lifetime of the array.

All-inclusive, SIMPLE, cloud-like subscription price guaranteed for the lifetime of the array.
You should not have to pay today’s prices for next year’s capacity. OPENCHOICE enables you to scale performance and capacity independently. You pay a fixed price per line card and an annual subscription guaranteed not to change for the life of the array, regardless of capacity. The subscription price includes HW Warranty + Support + Maintenance + all SW features and future SW upgrades, FOREVER. And YES, we support the entire system, even if we don’t sell the storage media. The buck stops with us. Period. And when needed, license more media slots to add more drives. Any capacity drives for that matter.
